A grand townhouse in the heart of the old town of Velez-Malaga which can sleep up to 14 people. It has a private courtyard pool, is a short walk from shops, bakeries, bars and restaurants, and is just 5km from the Mediterranean coast. A wonderful base for exploring Andalucia at any time of year.
Velez-Malaga is set between two mountain ranges and amongst the well-known white villages, and gets almost 3000 hours of sunshine every year. With the Mediterranean on your doorstep, and vast inland rural expanses to explore by bike, on foot or by car, it’s a wonderful place to escape to. Andalucia is a fabulous year-round destination, as winter temperatures are very mild, and there’s still lots of sunshine. These low season months can still reach up to 25 degrees in the daytime so if you’re after the beauty without the crowds (as well as quieter times at the big sites such as the Alhambra), then autumn and winter months are the best time!
The house is just outside the Moorish walls which once protected the original village of Velez-Malaga. You’re just a short walk from the History Museum and from the Contemporary Art Museum. Less than a 10 minute walk gets you to the old food market in Plaza San Francisco which is well known for its local foods, arts, crafts and concerts. The surrounding area simply oozes history - Phoenicians and Romans have both made their mark here, and one of the world’s oldest pieces of pictoral art is just 20km away in the caves of Nerja. Velez-Malaga is just 5km from the Mediterranean in the eastern part of the Costa del Sol. Torre del Mar is the closest coastal town, with its seaside promenade, beaches and beach bars, and there are masses of other towns and villages dotted along the coastline. For trips further afield, Malaga city is 20 mins, Granada (with the Alhambra) is 1 hr 10 mins, and you can even reach the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada is 1 hr 30 mins.
