Cabin under the Oak with PoolMy cabin is located in the Monachil Valley, about 2 kilometers from the village. The views are very nice from the terrace above, and you will be surrounded by nature. The attack is on a fairly steep lane that some people find difficult. You absolutely need to have your own car. In the summer you sleep in the cool cave, and in the winter in the attic above. Heating: wood stove! The pool and cabin is private exclusively for the renter: -)

Encompassing the southernmost part of the Spanish mainland, the wide coastal region of Andalusia teems with a richly varied and utterly unique heritage. Arabic tribes from North Africa ruled here from the 8th to 15th centuries; their legacy endures, not least in the eye-catching Moorish architecture of the Alhambra in Granada and the Mezquita (mosque) in Córdoba. The abounding culture of the inland cities, which include Seville and Jaén, are complemented by Andalusia’s famously pretty pueblos blancos (white villages) and the rugged beauty of its landscape, from the white-capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada to the wetlands of Doñana National Park. Its Mediterranean coastline is well known to holidaymakers; the Costa del Sol is a popular vacation spot, and Malaga has become a major art destination. But the wilder, Atlantic-facing cliffs and beaches have just as much to offer, from kitesurfing in Tarifa to picturesque fishing towns and the historic port cities of Cadiz and Huelva.
The two international airports in Andalusia are Malaga (AGP) and Seville (SVQ); with its 500 miles of coastline, the region is also well served by cruise liners and ferries. Trains run between the major cities, although buses are more common for connecting the smaller towns and villages. However, these operate infrequently and many visitors find that the best way to see the most of this large region is by car. It’s rarely worth driving in the cities themselves, where traffic and navigation can make life difficult, and where most sights can be covered on foot; taxis and rideshares also operate widely. Andalusia is popular with cyclists (you’re allowed to take your bike on most buses); just be aware that the terrain can be hilly, so you’ll need a reasonable level of fitness.
Summers are hot in Andalusia, which can make touring, sightseeing, and other outdoor activities quite burdensome between June and August. The best time to visit is spring, when it’s pleasant to be out and about and the countryside is alive with colourful flowers. It’s also when many of the region’s most lively and important festivals and ferias (fairs) are staged. In the days leading up to Easter, the streets of Seville fill with the Holy Week processions of Semana Santa, and they’re followed two weeks later by the equally popular April Fair. Horses are the centre of attention at Jerez’s Feria del Caballo in May, which is also the month for Córdoba’s Fiesta de los Patios, when the residents throw open their private courtyards to all comers. Autumn and winter are mild enough to offer good hiking weather, and come February, Cadiz is the place to be for its huge annual Carnaval.
In the southern valleys of the Sierra Nevada sit a string of 50 villages built in the Berber style, their flat-roofed, whitewashed houses gleaming from the surrounding countryside. Unique local crafts and cuisines have flourished here for centuries, and the villages are connected by awe-inspiring hiking trails.
This national park is home to Europe’s only desert – but don’t let that thought put you off. There’s magnificence to its vast, untouched beaches and the cliffs of volcanic rock that back them, with ancient fishing villages dotted here and there along the length of the coast.
Suspended across a 500-foot gorge, this town of two halves in the mountains of Málaga is an extraordinary spectacle. The Puente Nuevo that bridges the El Tajo ravine is a miracle of engineering completed in 1793 and the focal point of the town. But there’s plenty more history to be had in this ancient place, from its 13th-century Arab architecture to its Renaissance square.
