The Axarquía is a region in Andalusia with a variety of scenery: seaside, beaches, mountains, valleys, natural parks and lovely white villages.

At 10 minutes driving from our house is Vélez-Málaga, a nice town with a big shopping mall, and a huge Eroski supermarket.

Beach village Torre del Mar is still an authentic Spanish coastal village with perfectly equipped and well looked after white sandy beaches, and a vibrant night life.

The boardwalk has a beautiful park that runs for miles along the coast. The golf courses of Baviera Golf are very close by, as well as the Waterpark of Torre del Mar.

The beaches along the Costa Tropical and the Costa del Sol are well equipped and count numerous cosy chiringuitos.
