is based within walking distance of the beautiful mountain village of Sedella (pictured top right) There are many close by places to visit, our local village, a good walk away, the pretty "Plaza" of Competa for a cool drink by the splashing fountain, the seaside town of Torre del Mar, which has our nearest golf course and Nerja with it's 14.5km of coastline, with 12 delightful coves and beaches. Just 1 km inland from here, Nerja's great natural wonder lay hidden for thousands of years in a huge cave, where music and dance festivals are held every Summer, Delightful promenade walks can be enjoyed along the beachside, puntuated with tapas bars and many Chiringuitas.

World-renowned Marbella, a resort town with many excellent golf courses and shop till you drop possibilities and the world famous town of Puerto Banus with it's Jet set style marina and restaurant waterfront.

Gibraltar is just over 2.5 hours drive. The Rock is a fascinating place to visit. Take the cable car to the top, see the famous Barbary Apes, the caves and historic tunnels and view the two continents of Africa and Europe across the Straights.

Africa is close enough to visit by Hydrofoil from Algeciras, which is a little over 3 hours drive away. Ceuta, a Spanish city enclave on the African coast and Tangiers, a Moroccan city are about an hours crossing time away. Although there are frequent sailings, pre booking is a must, especially from July to September. There is a day trip with a guide available to Tangiers from Nerja by coach, a long day of course, but worth it.

Andalucia is larger than Wales and offers an incredible diversity of landscapes from the Mediterranean to the High Sierras. The moors regarded this, their Kingdom of Al-Andulas, as paradise on earth and it is not hard to see why.
