Colmenar

Colmenar which is a fifteen minute journey by car, is linked by the Periana Corridor and the Malaga Mountains to the west. Standing beside the old road to Granada, it comprises two different types of landscape: rocky mountains to the north and south and olive groves and cereal fields to the east and west. In the surrounding countryside there are numerous beehives from which the town name was derived ('colmena' is Spanish for beehive).

 Lake Vinuela

A thirty five minute drive away, this picturesque manmade reservoir holds 170 million cubic metres of water. The surrounding shores provide picnic and barbeque areas.

As the lake is a reservoir no motorised craft are allowed, just sailing boats and canoes. or, if you fancy a spot of fishing, day tickets can be purchased locally.

Nerja

This coastal town is just under an hour's drive away, and offers 16 kilometres of sandy beaches, clear sea and rising mountains, not to mention plenty of restaurants and cafes and a lively town centre. Three kilometres from the town are the Nerja Caves housing archaeological treasures, and in the summer months providing a venue for concert performances.

Antequera, El Torcal Natural Park and El Chorro

Just under an hour's drive away is the town of Antequera which has been inhabited since the Bronze Age. The town has been well preserved and has many buildings and monuments of interest worth visiting. Close by to Antequera is the El Torcal Natural Park with its most amazing limestone formations dating back to the Jurassic period, around 150 million years ago. From the visitors area there are two well signposted walks, either of which are well worth experiencing. El Chorro is a limestone gorge through which passes the Guadalhorce river, it was dammed in 1921 forming three reservoirs which are flanked by pine forests. El Chorro is renowned for its rock climbing along with the many Eagles which are frequently seen circling above the cliffs.

Granada and The Alhambra

Granada is just over an hour's drive from us. It provides hypermarkets, designer shops and craft shops, squares and terraces with restaurants and cafes alongside Moorish architectural interests. It also boasts the famous Moorish Alhambra Palace with its fortifications, opulent rooms and beautiful gardens. Granada nestles below the Sierra Nevada mountains which is a magnet for those interested in winter sports.

Malaga

Malaga is around a fourty minute journey away. The old and new parts of the city offer shops, tapas bars, architecture from different eras, and cultural experiences including Picasso's house which now exhibits some of his work.
