The Andalucia / Malaga Province region

The Guadalhorce Valley is one of the greenest and prettiest in Andalucia with it's Olive, Lemon and Orange Groves. The beautiful turquoise Lakes of El Chorro and its stunning gorge is only a 40 minute drive away. All the coastal area from Nerja to Gibraltar is within easy reach by car; or drive inland to places such as Ronda, Mijas, Antequerra. Visit the Water Parks at Torremolinos or Mijas, Fuengirola Zoo (which is open at night during the summer) or the Safari Park. Drive inland towards Antequerra , take the train into Malaga and enjoy the cafe culture, make a visit to the Picasso museum or just enjoy the beaches. Ronda is only a 45 minute drive and well worth a days visit. Marbella and Puerta Banus are also within easy reach. 

The biggest Butterfly Park in Europe opened in March 2011 near Benalmadena only a 30 minute drive away. Really beautiful and worth a visit.

30 minutes from the crags of El Chorro, during winter months when climbers are here I offer good home cooked meals for €10 per head, after a long day climbing come back to a good meal and then just relax.
