We believe that our gay lodgings are in a great location within Andalucia, Spain! Cordoba, Granada, Ronda and Seville are all nearby.
Whilst Los Curriches is in the beautiful rolling hills of the Axarquia region, it is only 10 minutes from the motorway network, giving fast and easy access to the historic cities of Malaga, Ronda, Sevilla, Granada and Cordoba. The same motorway network also gives quick access to the various gay naturist/nudist beaches down on the coast.
But all around us are the Nature Reserves/Natural Parks of the region, and a myriad of scenic, typically Spanish white villages.
Of particular note are the villages of Comares and Frigiliana. These 2 villages have really retained their old Spanish charm, with their twisty footpaths, cobbled streets, shaded courtyards and hidden churches.
Comares is in a spectacular cliff-top location, providing far-reaching views of the Axarquia countryside and the mountains beyond. Frigiliana is more touristy, but still manages to retain its charming atmosphere, but with the addition of its jewelery and pottery shops, plus an almost endless variety of bars and restaurants.
Further east are the impressive Nerja caves, with their huge stalactite and stalagmite formations. Just to the east of Nerja is the Maro marine reserve where snorkellers and divers can checkout the local marine wildlife in this protected environment.
Closer to home, the local village of Casabermeja has a fascinating above-ground cemetery which was declared a National Monument in 1980, and is considered to be one of the best examples of its type in the whole of Andalucia. It might sound a bit morbid to wander around a cemetery, but the intricate stonework on some of the tombs is wonderful - one of them is even in the colourful Gaudi style! Also, less than 2km from the property, are prehistoric cave paintings called Las Piedras de Cabrera.
The locals love their fairs and fiestas - there always seems to be some sort of celebration going on in at least one of the villages. Many villages still celebrate making a living from the land, with festivals of wine, olives, avocados, raisins, honey and ham to name but a few. The village of Riogordo, about 15 minutes from here, has one of the largest and best attended Easter parades in the whole of Andalucia.
