Our finca is located near Ardales and El Chorro, this area is a true Mecca for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, no matter what age. By the lake there are various restaurants and picnic sites as the area is a quite popular excursion spot. Here you have the option to do water sports such as kayak or canoeing. You can even fish in the lake, we have two fishing rods for your use. The neighbouring villages are Alora, Antequera, Pizzara, Bobadilla and Campillos. El Torcal is close by and spectacularly formed from limestone weathered over eons of time and its moon-like landscape makes it a "must see" attraction. By El Chorro you find the most overwhelming natural gorge, here an enormous rock has been divided as with an axe and the edge is very sharp and narrow, it is called La Garganta del Chorro; the throat of the spring.
El Arpa is located in El Chorro, Antequera, Málaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain. It is only 45 minutes easy drive from Malaga´s international airport Pablo Picasso. With plenty of good flight connections from UK using British Airways, Easyjet, Ryanair or Air Berlin just to mention some of them. We do recommend the use of a car during your stay, but it is possible to use the train and a taxi to get to the finca. The drive to El Arpa is very easy, to the right you will find the link with our dirrections from Malaga Airport. We do not recommend the use of GPS equipment because some of the roads around here are not on the maps. The ones using GPS on their way here tend to get lost...
