WHAT TO SEE AND DO

  • Swimming at the lakes

    An amazing day, (30 mins from El Pueblecillo) where you can go and either walk around these stunning lakes or swim, jump off the rocks, rent a pedalo, camp for a night....and have a fantastic Spanish lunch at La Mirador tapas bar that sits above and looks across the beautiful lakes

  • Malaga Covered Market

    For any foodies - this is a must......get up in the morning and drive into Malaga old town (35 mins) where you will find the covered market. Amble around admiring the amazing fish, meat, vegetables and cheeses etc. whilst you decide what you are going to put on the bbq menu! a bit of shopping and a wander around the centre and then drive to El Palo for a long lunch in a fish restaurant on the beach.

  • Walk to the rock pools in Sierra de Las Nieves

    Completely beautiful walk through the Sierra de Las Nieves to swim in the rock pools. You will almost certainly be on your own as none of these beautiful attractions seem to be advertised well here in Andalucia.......children love it but it really is stunning for all!

  • Biking

    There is the most spectacular biking in the area - not for the faint hearted as it is fairly hilly but staggering views wherever you are. Bikes can be hired from Bike2Malaga - perhaps organise in advance and get them to deliver to the airport when you arrive.

  • Camino Del Rey

    For those daredevils among you El Camino Del Rey is only 30 minutes from the house. Dubbed “one of the world’s scariest hikes”, and selected as one of Lonely Planet’s top new travel experiences for 2015, the walkway attached to the steep walls of the El Chorro gorge in the province of Málaga reopened after four years of extensive renovations in March 2015. It is already booked way in advance so plan ahead in order to not be disappointed.
