This is an authentic taste of the real Spain in the land of olive groves, almond blossom and rolling countryside. Yet it is not isolated, being just a short walk from the pretty village of Los Romanes, with its two shops, bars and restaurants and the best restaurant in the area is just a few minutes walk away. Alternatively, there are some typically Spanish bars and restaurants in the small whitewashed mountain villages such as Comares, Periana and Alcaucin nearby to explore.
A short 20 min drive takes you to the coast, a major shopping centre, Velez-Malaga the attractive capital of the region, and the bustling Spanish seaside resort of Torre del Mar with its famous fish restaurants and wonderful beach “chiringuitos” offering the local delicacy the “espeto” (sardines on a skewer) for just 5 euros!. Further afield, Granada (visit the wonderful Alhambra), Seville, Cordoba and Gibraltar and Cadiz are all within travelling distance by car. Malaga, the jewel of the Costa del Sol with its fabulous museums, shops and tapas bars is an easy drive.
