A lovely rest

5 of 5
Found this to be a lovely restful location during the winter months with lovely views down to the Bay of Malaga, only 10 mins drive to either Alhaurin el Grande or Alhaurin del la Torre where there are plenty of restuarants if you dont feel like cooking, only about 20 mins from the airport and the coast. The chalet was well equipped and comfortable and the hosts very helpful. Will definately use again.
