The Andalucia region
Balcón de Andaluz Torrox is located in Torrox a 10 minute car ride from the beach and boulevard. Torrox Pueblo is also nearby, a 15 minutes' walk. This is one of the many authentic Spanish white villages of La Axarquía region.
The Balcón is especially central, making it a convenient home base for many interesting day trips to the sites like Nerja, Frigiliana, Comares, Alhama de Granada, the Alpujarras, the Sierra Nevada, Malaga, Granada, Gibraltar , the natural park of Torcal.or even Sevilla and Cordoba.
In winter you can have fun by going to ski. In less than a 2 hours drive you find the large ski resort Sierra Nevada. An adult ski area with over 100 km of pistes and 30 lifts. Guaranteed snow from December to mid-April.
Other sports that you can practice are mountain biking, cycling, kite surfing and golf course on one of the many golf courses for example in Torre del Mar.
Less than 15 minutes from our Villa Balcón de Andaluz there is in Velez Malaga a big shopping mall El Ingenio. Here you will find more than 100 shops, including the large Eroski supermarket. Parking your car is very easy over there.
Torrox Costa has also many supermarkets as the Lidl ,Mercadona.,Eroski, Supersol and Aldi .A visit to the weekly markets of Nerja,Torrox and Torre del Mar are also recommended.
Torrox and Nerja are locally known for its many bars with live-music, especially the jam sessions. Do you play an instrument and / or do you like to sing? Then it is appreciated if you play or sing some songs with the musicians. Every night is a surprise. There is often music from the 60s and 70s. However, the youngsters also brings modern music and sometimes they make real Spanish music. We're willing to give you tips when and where the jam sessions take place.
Beach lovers can indulge themselves on the sandy beaches of Algarrobo (with the blue flag of outstanding beach), Torre del Mar, Nerja, Torrox and El Morche. The beaches have good facilities and are equipped with numerous chirinquitos (cabanas) with a specialty of Espetos the Sardines on their menu. And don't miss the many restaurants. We are happy to advise you where you can have a culinary experience.
Our Villa Balcón de Andaluz in Torrox is situated in La Axarquía, the region east of Malaga. Most travel guides that cover this region, never seem to get further than a few remarks on Malaga and Nerja. And here in lies the charm of this area. No mass tourism, like the areas west of Malaga. In La Axarquía you can go in search of the authentic Spanish way of life.
La Axarquía is a mountainous area that ends at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea. A great deal of the area is taken up by the Sierra de Tejeda, mountain range and National Park with the Maroma (2065 m) as highest peak. During our search for a location close to the Spanish coast for home and for work, this area made the biggest impression on us both. The nature in the inland areas is magnificent. It is an ideally place for hiking. There are numerous authentic white villages, like the breathtaking eagles nest Comares, the lovely Cómpeta and the charming Frigiliana. Other authentic white villages include Algarrobo Pueblo, Torrox Pueblo, Canillas and Alcaucin. All have regular farmers markets where they sell local products. Occasional road delays occur as goat herder and his goats make their daily journey from fields to farm and v.v. In the spring, the landscape changes color as the almond trees and mimosa blossom.
La Axarquía and its central location offer strong benefits to culture lovers. This area has a rich history of both Venetian and Arabic influences. Malaga is a surprisingly beautiful city with many interesting sites including a compact historic center perfect for those who like to explore a city on foot. Granada with the Alhambra is a day excursion about 1, 5 hours by car from our Balcón de Andaluz. Velez Malaga is an authentic Spanish small town with many monuments. A beautiful day trip is easy made by good mountain roads to Alhama de Granada featuring many archeological ruins that stem from Moorish times. Salobreña is a Moorish city dominated by a castle. This is a must see for visitors.
For winter visitors, we have an added attraction. The Sierra Nevada ski resort is a 2 hour drive from here. Make no mistake; this is a serious ski area with more than 100 kms of prepared ski trails and 18 lifts. At 3481 m, this area is guaranteed to have snow from mid-December to mid-April.
Other sports activities here are mountain biking, hiking, cycling, surfing, kiting and golf at one of the many golf resorts, for example at Torre del Mar.
An excursion to Gibraltar is recommended. Gibraltar is easy to get reach from here and makes an enjoyable day. A visit to the beautiful nature reserve Torcal with its impressive rock formations is a beautiful trip too. Don't forget the Alpurjarras.
This summary is only a selection of the things you can do in the area. Of course, we are happy to give you more information about these trips. We also have numerous other ideas on day trips or longer excursions during your stay.
La Axarquía region has much to offer and in our view remains one of the most interesting and diverse areas of Spain and with ….. 'Le mejor clima de Europa' it offers the best climate Europe!
The area is known for its celebrations, like the “Fiësta de tres Culturas” in Frigiliana which celebrates the rich origins of the peaceful coexistence of three communities in this area: Jewish, Muslim and Christianity. This fiësta remains popular today and includes performance of traditional music and dances as well as outdoor markets offering traditional crafts and products from each culture.
For beach lovers, sandy beaches can be found along the coast at towns like Torre del Mar, Algarrobo, El Morche, Torrox en Nerja. Each beach has good facilities including many 'chirinquitos' (beachside cafes) offering local specialties like Espetos de Sardines: sardines roasted over a wood fire stove. Of course, there are also many restaurants and we are more than happy to give you our recommendations on which culinary locations should not be missed.
A visit to Nerja is a definite must. It's a little touristy but beautiful beach location rife with little crooked lanes, charming eclectic shops and great tapas bars and restaurants. The highest point in town, Balcón de Europa, offers an amazing view of the sea. A visit to one of the Flamenco bars is highly recommended. And don't forget to visit the famous Caves (stalactite and stalagmite) of Nerja while you are there.
