Alhaurin el Grande

One of Malaga’s lovely white villages. Not to confuse with Alhaurin de la Torre, which is much bigger and less authentic. Alhaurin el Grande is located in the south area of the province of Malaga in the Guadalhorce Valley region.

It has about 25.000 inhabitants and is still a typical Spanish white pueblo. With a variety of more than 50 different restaurants and local bars. Avenida Gerald Brenan is loaded with teracces. Don’t forget to visit Plaza Baja, the ayuntamiento and its churches. As well as olive museo Molino de la Paca. It’s a must-see for both Spanish and foreign visitors with guided tours.

Alhaurin Golf club & Lauro Golf club resort

Our Bed and Breakfast is located in between 2 golf clubs, at only 3 and 5 km distance.

Alhaurin Golf: a spectacular 18-hole course on the Costa del Sol. Designed by the unforgettable Severiano Ballesteros. With stunning views to the Sierra de Mijas and the Mediterranean.

Lauro Golf: a 27-holes golf course, with services such as a restaurant and sports activities such as paddle tennis, horse riding and petanque, all in a unique natural environment.

Malaga city

Not to miss the Alcazaba fortress with teatro Romano: the former Moorish (Arabic) fortress is located on the slope of the Gibralfaro mountain. Alcazaba comes from the Arabic word for citadel “al-qasbah”. In the bario Pedregalejo you find the famous espetos (BBQ sardines) along the boulevard.

Other topics are:

Muello Uno, the new harbour promenade of Malaga,

Plaza de Tores, Málaga’s Cathedral ‘La Manquita’, food Mercado Atarazanas and City beach Playa de Malagueta.

Oijen, Monda and Mijas pueblo

Ojen is just up the hills behind Marbella. Mijas Pueblo is probably the most famous white village of all the “Pueblo Blanco” in the province of Málaga.

This charming and touristic village is located at an altitude of 425m and is typically Andalusian. It is famous for its local shops, narrow streets, donkey carriage rides, the old bull arena (to visit) and panoramic views over the mediterranean sea.

Beachclubs at playa Los Alamos and Torremolinos

Even before Malaga city there is Plaza Mayor, a huge and modern shopping mall with a designers outlet. From here drive on to the wide sandy beaches of Los Alamos. You can cycle or walk on a kilometers-long boulevard with various chiringuitos that ends up in Torremolinos. Definitely much appreciated by us.

Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol is famous for area Carihuela and (gay) night life in Nogalera. Notice that the old town is way up from the boulevard.

Marbella and Puerto Banus

The fashionable Marbella has a still a beautiful old center with little streets to stroll around. Plaza Naranja is not to miss and there is a variety of restaurants. Take the boulevard in the city on the west side. You can walk for miles by the sea in the direction of Puerto Banus. Stop at cafe Capucino along the way or a little further at our favorite hangout; restaurant and beach club El Chirinquito.


Furthermore the local Saturday market at Nueva Andalucia is to reccomend. As well as the big boats and fancy shops in the harbour of Puerto Banus.
