Holiday Rental House
A very special country house in a private estate in the hills overlooking Malaga. Stay in one of the few remaining classic Andalucian cortijos, the location is unique: a totally private valley on the edge of Malaga city -just five miles as the crow flies from the cathedral. You can be in the city centre, at the beach or in the airport in under 20 minutes. The village has seven ventas (bar/restaurants). Additionally, in-house catering can be arranged. The house sits in 91 secluded acres of olive, almond and carob groves. There are wonderful panoramic views to the western Montes and the Mediterranean Sea. Built as an olive mill in 1854, the floors are terracotta and the rooms have beamed ceilings. In the mill itself -an integral part of the home- the original stones and press are still inta...A very special country house in a private estate in the hills overlooking Malaga.

About the neighbourhood
The estate is on the edge of the small village of Los Gamez. This is where the countryside begins for most Malaguenos and the area is well known for its ventas: these are the family-run roadside bar/restaurants. There are 7 of these within just one mile of the property so there's plenty of choice if you want to step out and eat locally. The village is the cultural and physical centre of the tradition of verdiales, folk music and dance which extends through the Montes de Malaga and is said to predate flamenco. You will probably be able to hear and see performances of this unique music in the local bars.
Getting around
This is a country house and you'll need a car to do shopping runs and get into town, which is only a short drive.. There is a very limited (twice a day) bus service from the village into central Malaga. The Malaga taxi services are efficient, generally taking only a few minutes to arrive.
