Casa Las Jaras

Natural Park 'Sierra Tejeda-Almijara'


Costa del Sol - Malaga - Andalusia - Spain

Fancy a walking holiday in Spain? Want to go hiking in Andalucia? After a short drive east of Malaga you will be in the Axarquia region, one of Spain’s wild places preserved from the clutches of property developers, and in the shadow of the impressive peaks of Sierra Tejeda Almijara.

The Axarquia has a natural surrounding of great richness and variety – splendid diversity of  wetland zones, mountain ranges and a place where hundreds of birds pass through during their migration.  It is considered one of the most important locations of Europe for botanic richness.

It’s a region of historic white villages with a distinctive Arabic influence scattered amongst dramatic hills and mountains, and where grape vines, mango, orange, lemon and advocado trees  thrive alongside ancient olive and almond groves.

You will find a number of spectacular walks here. Walks vary from easy to difficult, so the region can easily cater for all tastes and abilities. The natural park Sierra Almijara and Tejeda  offer a wide variety of walks. The summer in the area is very hot. If you want to have an active walking holiday the summer is not the best time of the year. The rest of the year the climate is agreeable (usually 10 to 15 degrees higher than Great Britain and the Netherlands).

Wherever you walk you will love the flora, fauna, architecture, spectacular scenery,  history and the warm welcoming people of this corner of Andalucia. Here’s your perfect opportunity to enjoy a dream holiday walking in Spain.

The photographs shown below have been taken a 3 minutes' drive away from the property. The area is breathtakingly beautiful and has not been taken over by tourism. Moved away from the coast line and the main attractions are the dramatic hills and mountains with the wonderful scenery they offer and also the unspoilt, white villages which are a pleasure to visit and stroll through whilst soaking up the local atmosphere.

Spaniards in general are not great walkers, although the walking area here is immense. So it often happens that while walking a whole day in a fantastic area, you won’t encounter any other walker.

Come on a birding trip in 'Casa Las Jaras',  just bring your binoculars and you will be amazed at the stunning views, the wonderful local area and typical white villages.

'Casa Las Jaras is a perfect holiday base for exploring Real Andalucia. The house is clean, well-maintained and has every convenience you would need to make your holiday relaxed and comfortable. The pool is well-kept and very welcome in the hot Andalusian sunshine. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending this property to my own family or friends. Overall an excellent holiday home.'
Peter B. London.


'A lovely property.
Beautifully situated, decorated and maintained house. An "interesting" access road - but just take it easy and it was fine. But the house was great and I would unreservedly recommend it. A complete rural, isolated blissful spot on the side of the Andalucian mountain.
I would go back tomorrow if I could. I congratulate the owner on creating this property - as far as I can see they just got everything right'.
Margaret T.


'We have just got back myself and my husband from a lovely holiday at Casa Las Jaras. We went for Easter and had a fabulous time. The cottage was exactly as described in a really peaceful setting. Lots of walking done and lots of relaxing. Lots of interesting places to go, the white villages were very pretty and the weather fantastic. The house itself is dead comfortable and we were very sad to leave it. Hopefully we will be back in the not too far distant future.'
Suzanne and Jim. Holland.


'A comfortable villa, with great terrace and views. Lots of possibilities for hiking. Canillas de Albaida is not far away, has several small supermarkets and some good restaurants. The house has a well equipped kitchen and a fireplace in the living room, which we used several times. We had a great time. After several walks higher in the mountains Las Jaras is a good place to come home,  lay back and to have some local wine on the terrace!. A real taste of Spain.'
Andrew P. Guildford.


'Lovely cottage, tucked away in stunning countryside, perfect for walking and exploring rural Spain.'
Gilly. Leicester.


'Charming and unike. I was looking for rural tranquillity as far away from impersonal hotel chains as possible. This is exactly what I got and more. Accommodation is simple but homely and charming. I must admit I wasn't sure if I'd find enough to do in the area, but in the event 2 weeks wasn't long enough and I will be back!.
Gerlinde Hofmayer.


'This beautiful cottage was a wonderful holiday experience. The cottage itself was clean, well-kept, and most importantly - quiet and private. The private pool was surrounded by a nice terrace with sun-beds and other outdoor furniture creating a nice ambience for outdoor dining or just enjoying a glass of wine.' 
Justin Chill, Norway. 


'With my mom we spent at Casa Las Jaras really wonderful time!. The house is located amongst beautiful hills, with an amazing view!. Casa Las Jaras is a house which we loved from the beginning, with its spirit and the atmosphere, where You feel like it was your own house, at least for a while! To sum up, it is just a great place to enjoy the warm soul of Andalusia! All the trip was my birthday present from my mom and it was the best I ever had!.
Alice, Groningeng. 


'To get to Casa Las Jaras is a holiday on its own. We saw wonderful nature, and villages that aren't spoiled by tourism, but kept their typical spanish influences. We have definitely enjoyed our stay, and could recommend it to anyone!.
Sue and illy. Leicester.
