This is the real Spain!
In the heart of the little-known peaceful Axarquia, nestled on the slopes of the stunning Sierra Tejeda mountains and overlooking the beautiful Vinuela valley with its lake far below, Casa Louisa is a large, spacious and comfortable house, sleeping up to ten, with large pool, several sun-trap terraces and close to the little pueblo village of Alcaucin with its very Spanish Bars and restaurants.
Although only a short drive from the bright lights and bustle of the coast and around an hour from Malaga airport, at Casa Louisa you will find a haven of peace and tranquility amid the olive groves and the rugged beauty of towering mountains that surround the valley; where holidays with family and friends become unforgettable … happy times with children splashing and laughing … peaceful restful relaxing days under a hot sun, dozing, perhaps, in the shade, book in hand and only the sound of the breeze rustling the olive trees to disturb you; of walks through the pine-woods in the National Park just above …of watching wonderful sunsets from the balcony, seduced by the incredible views … of evenings lasting well into the night gathered round a candle-lit table and under a brilliant star-lit sky, the lights of the valley twinkling far below.
This fascinating part of Andalucia offers a multitude of interesting and exciting things to do and see for those who like to be out and about … Granada and its wonderful Alhambra Palace … the stunning ancient cities of Cordoba and Seville … perhaps a trip to the water park with the kids or a day cycling on the tiny almost unused roads … take, perhaps, a guided mountain bike trip through the forest on the many tracks ? … a fresh seafood lunch on the coast? … kayaking through gentle coastal waters around the cave-studded cliffs? You will find, however, dragging yourself away from lazy days by the pool, the peace and quiet, the comforts of the house and the stunning setting, will become harder and harder as the days go by.
