The Casita is the smaller of the two properties and completely separate and private. The accommodation consists of 1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom incorporating walk in shower, split level living area with double Futon for extra sleeping and large kitchen/dining room. It will accommodate up to 4 persons. There is satellite TV plus DVD and WiFi internet access. Outside there is a private patio area with outdoor seating, BBQ etc and access to the swimming pool (7x 4 m). For the winter months the Casita has portable gas heaters ( small extra charge ). We invite you to come and stay with us on our small farm, where we have created , in this privileged environment, what we feel to be an ideal rural retreat. With stunning views to the Mediterranean coast and the surrounding sierras, this is the perfect location for anyone wishing to experience the real Spain. Enjoy the many wonderful animals we have here - alpacas, donkeys, peafowl, hens, turkeys, cats and dogs. You may not want to venture out but if you do there are numerous opportunities in the area for all kinds of outdoor activities such as cycling (mountain bike & road) walking, rock climbing, horse riding and bird watching. The ancient town of Antequera is only 25 min drive away, plus you are ideally situated to make day trips to the historical cities of Granada (1.5 h drive), Cordoba (2 h), Seville (2 h). Plenty to do and see, with the city of Malaga and all the attractions of the Costa del Sol only a short drive away (40 min) should you wish for it. Cycling: Guided cycle touring, training and mountain biking is offered by Cycling Solana, based at Cortijo La Solana, providing cyclists of all levels of ability and interest with experienced ride guidance and fully-supported cycling itineraries to suit groups of up to 10 cyclists, wishing to explore the area and ride the best of the quiet scenic roads in the region.
