Casa Las Jaras

Welcome to Andalusia!


Costa del Sol - Malaga - Andalusia - Spain

Once Spain´s poorest region, Andalucia - and specifically the provinces of Malaga, Granada and Seville - is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, thanks to its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside, spectacular mountain ranges, fabulous monuments and high-spirited people who live life to the full and are well known for their exuberance, warmth and hospitality.

Andalucia is also home of flamenco and bullfighting, which can be best enjoyed at the region´s countless ferias and romerias.

But perhaps the most unique feature of this enchanting region are the remants of its Moorish past. The Moors were a mixture of Berbers and Arabs who crossed into Spain from North Africa by the Straits of Gibraltar and occupied the peninsula - which they called al Andalus - for more than seven centuries, dating from 710 when they first landed in Tarifa. Within a mere four years they had virtually conquered the entire country, although they soon withdrew to the southern part of the peninsula, where they established, in the towns of Cordoba, Seville and Granada, one of the most sophisticated civilisations of the Middle Ages. Each of these Andalucian capitals boasts spectacular remains of their monuments, the most unforgottebale of which is, undoubtedly, Granada's Alhambra palace.

Andalucia has 500 miles of coastline and of which 70% are sandy beaches. The Mediterranean seaboard is graced by the Costa de Almeria, Costa Tropical and the glamorous, cosmopolitan Costa del Sol, while the Costa de la Luz lies along the Atlantic shore to the west of Gibraltar.

As well as Andalucia´s fascinating cities and dazzling shores, the region is sprinkled with tiny unspoilt villages and whitewashed towns - the famous pueblos blancos - which tourists often overlook, even though they are of easy access, such as Archez, Salares, Competa, Canillas de Albaida, ...

Andalucia, then, is a region of startling contrasts and great charm. Yet, this mysterious corner of Europe is easy to reach, with hundreds of charter flights arriving each week at Malaga´s Pablo Picasso International Airport. 'Casa Las Jaras' is situated approximately 70 minutes drive away from International Airport Pablo Ruiz Picasso.


'We had a fantastic time! Everything was just perfect, in fact for us it was the ideal rural setting. Because of our business, we rarely get enough time for a break - so if we do, we expect something special. Both of us have agreed: Las Jaras is just that, very special. We hope we can do it again in the very near future'.
Andrew Ingham. London.


'We enjoyed our stay at Las Jaras very much. It was beautifully situated, very comfortable (particularly the beds) and with a lovely ambiance. Our favorite moments were spent sitting around the fireplace and enjoying the silence. We found it difficult to choose between spending our time indoors by the fireplace or outdoors exploring the countryside! We hope to come back again for another visit'.
Reinhard, Deutschland.

'This is a stunningly, beautiful and relaxing place to unwind and forget about all the usual stresses and strains of life. It is just so peaceful. The house is extremely comfortable, pretty and has everything you need.'
Jenny and Derek, Norfolk.


'We arrived at the house late at night unaware of our surroundings, and awoke to find ourselves in a little paradise. The setting is stunning - you open the door to olive trees, and look beyond them to mountains on all sides. The house itself is very comfortable and tastefully decorated.  Within easy reach of mountain villages, coast, Malaga and Granada, but it almost seems a shame to drag yourself away from the property some days.  Would definitely like to go back.'
Alan & Yvonne.
