About the neighbourhood
La Amapola is located 4kms form the pleasant market village of Periana, with shops, tapas bars and some excellent restaurants. There are a number of nearby pretty hilltop bars and a fabulous Lakeside venue for romantic dinners or family get togethers.
The nearest towns are Velez-Malaga and Torre del Mar on the Costa del Sol, about 20 minutes drive. Torre del Mar is a typical Spanish beach resort, with a pretty pal dotted promenade, ice cream parlours, water sports, and lots of shops and restaurants.
Velez-Malaga is a bustling market town which dates back to Phoenician times. Sites of historic interest include the Palacio del Marqués de Beniel (1610–1616), the Church of Santa María la Mayor (1487) and the Convent of the Carmelites (1699), in Baroque style with a Renaissance portal.
Getting around
Car hire is essential as this is a country villa.
However, there are lots of country walks and cycling and horse riding routes close by, for those who would like to explore the area in a slightly more adventurous way!
