Sueños is our dream home with a superb view over Lake Viñuela in the heart of beautiful Axarquia.
It is equipped as a home, with all cooking facilities and a dish-washer, and a utility room for storage and clothes washing. There is air conditioning in the lounge and bedrooms as well as ceiling fans if you prefer. Easy to use electrical grills, oven etc for outside use. The terrace has easy to use remote controlled electric blinds for shade, four sun loungers and storage for pool toys. There are gates to the pool and railings for children's safety.
For your car there is a well shaded carport and sliding electric gate, remotely controlled. You will need a car, as the local shopping area is a mile away and includes a return up a steep hill. The shopping there includes a baker, butcher, supermarket, Chinese emporium, hair and beauty salon, ironmongers, restaurants, bars and cafés.
Twenty minutes drive away is the large town of Velez-Malaga, El Ingenio (a super store complex), Lidl, and an industrial estate. Ten minutes further on is the nearest beach, at Torre del Mar.
Nerja, a very popular resort with Brits, and above it the white village of Frigiliana, are 40 minutes drive from Sueños.
Malaga is an hour’s drive, or you might prefer the bus ride from Torre del Mar, about €5 return, saving the expense and difficulty of parking. Malaga has a wonderful port area, shopping and historic centre, and good beaches and cultural features. Weekly markets are held at nearby Torre and Velez on Thursdays and at Caleta de Mar on Saturday morning.
Cycling and walking in this mountain area are to die for. The best cycling is in the mountains right from the front gate, and needs bikes with a wide range of gears. We have two bikes suitable for riding at the beach, on the cycle track at Torre and a rack to take them there on a car. The best walking is in the Parque Natural, to which you would have to drive, the nearest access being at Alcaucín, 7km away. You can, however access plenty of paths from our front gate.
