About Simon Chapman

I have lived and worked in Spain for over 20 years. I currently live in Malaga's historic centre, but we use Casa Jose Ramon on the weekends, when it is not rented out, to switch off, and wake up to nature.

Simon Chapman purchased this farmhouse in 1993

Why Simon Chapman chose Riogordo

When we bought the property, it had no mains water or electricity, I think we just fell in love with the views.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Peace and tranquillity

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sometimes when you select a property the photos advertising it are better than the real thing and you end up a little disappointed...that is certainly not true with casa Jose Ramon. The house is wonderful, one of the best we have stayed in. The attention to detail takes you away from the rental feeling and makes you feel at home straight away. It had everything we needed and more..our boys (5 and 7) loved feeding the fish and the pool was perfect for them. The view really is simply stunning and makes you never want to leave. We had plans to visit the big sites but the local area was so lovely we didn't venture too far. Loved the trip to Comares after staring across at if from afar, well worth a visit. Definitely recommend.

The Riogordo area

Places of interest:

El Tajo del Gómer. One of the most beautiful areas around Riogordo, where a trekking route takes us to the Tajo (Gorge) at the Río de la Cueva.

Ruta de los Montes de Malaga. (Route of the Montes de Malaga) Offers the chance to get to know the nature park a little better by offering a variety of itineraries such as the one which starts at the Venta Fuente Reina a typical country restaurant, leading on to the recreation and camping area of Torrijos. Visitors here will be able to see the Torrijos Ethnological Museum which has been set up in an old farmhouse that preserves its original roof beams and has a wine press over two hundred years old. An alternative is to take the route that starts at the Las Contadoras Nature Centre, an environmental education centre set in a rambling 18th century house, and ends up at the ruins of Jotrón.

Route of the Ventas. (countryside restaurants) Follows the C-345, the old road to Colmenar. The road snakes upwards past pine clad hillsides and offers numerous natural “miradores” with panoramic views of the mountains and sea. But the main attraction of this route are the ventas that line the road and are generally situated in locations with magnificent vistas. Ventas usually offer a varied menu of typical local gastronomy for instance, “plato de los Montes” of fried eggs, chorizo sausage, fried green peppers and tasty pork loin, washed down with “vino de los Montes”, a tawny-coloured sweet muscatel wine from the Montes, and finally a traditional “digestivo” drink known as aguardiente. Alternatively you might like to try dishes such as country-style rabbit stew or partridge in broth. Then there are the delicious cakes and preserves such as “borrachuelos”, wine-flavoured fritters glazed in honey, “batata confitada” (candied sweet potatoes) or “mostachones con piñones” (pine nut macaroons).

Caserbermeja. Worth visiting, if for no other reason than in the year 1840 it threw out all the landowners and declared itself a republic, the government of the day took an entirely different view and sent the army to explain this was not an acceptable course of action. Casabermeja also forms part of another itinerary.

Route of the Almond Trees (“Ruta del almendro”), which includes the village of Almogía. Amongst the other routes running through the Montes de Malaga are the

Route of the Olive Oil (“Ruta del aceite de los Montes”) which takes in Alcaucín, Alfarnate, Alfarnatejo, Colmenar, Periana, Riogordo and Viñuela.

Route of the Raisin (“Ruta de la pasa”), which includes the villages of Almáchar, El Borge, Comares, Cutar, Moclinejo and Totalán.
