El Padron is situated in a private, peaceful and spectacular setting with views towards the sea and the white hillside villages of the Axarquia. Around the house the surrounding hilly countryside is still very Spanish, with the local farmers working on their fields and groves of olives, almonds, vines, and now also mangoes.The self-catering property has its own private pool and terraces, much of which is covered to provide shade. The pool is in the shape of a long teardrop and measures 9m x 3.5m at the widest point with a depth of 1.75 metres throughout. The established garden provides a green oasis, with views over the surrounding olive, almond and mango trees and ancient vines. The house has facilities for the more active, with a boules pitch and ping pong table. For the less active there is a library of books, internet access and a TV and DVD player if you wish to bring your own DVDs. It is an ideal house for multi-generational families with lots of space to get away and relax, with various covered and open terraces where you can relax and sunbathe, or hide away with a book. The house sleeps 8 to 10 people, with 2 double bedrooms and 3 twin rooms, one of which is more suitable for children. There is one en-suite bath/shower room attached to one of the twin rooms which is on the ground floor, an en-suite shower room to one of the doubles and a shared shower room, all of which are on the first floor with the remaining bedrooms.
Access to the property is via a country road which is mainly surfaced with tarmac and concrete. However there is a section of unmade road so a car with a reasonable clearance is advisable.
The local restaurants offer a wide range of menus, from typical Andalucian mountain food in the inland villages, to all sorts of delicious fish and seafood in the restaurants and beach chiringuitos on the coast. You will also find some Indian, Thai and Chinese restaurants in the area!
The beach is approximately 25 minutes away, there are great walks within easy reach of the property, and we are centrally located for day trips to Granada and the Alhambra, Cordoba and its Mesquita, Ronda, Gibraltar and Malaga City. For the water sports enthusiasts there are facilities in Nerja, also horse-riding near Periana and a water park in Velez-Malaga for the young ones. We can also organise guided walks in the area with an experienced local mountain guide.
