Malaga 30 min
Most guests fly into Malaga Airport and leave with a rental car. But don't forget to visit this city. Just 30 minutes from Finca Gordo you are in the center of the capital of the province of the same name. There is something to do for everyone: shopping in Calle Marqués de Larios, viewing historical monuments such as the Cathedral from 1700 or the Castillo Gilbralfaro and nearby the fortress Alcazaba.
For those who love gardens, Jardin de la Concepción is a must, just on the outskirts of Malaga on the route to Riogordo.
If you want to stroll on the boulevard at the harbor, that's also possible: marvel at the huge cruise ships that dock there and give their passengers the opportunity to explore Malaga.
In the unlikely event that it is rainy or too hot, visit one of the museums: Museo Carmen Thyssen, Center Pompidou (an annex of Paris) or the Picasso museum. Finally, Pablo is also a native Malagueño. Need more tips: you can of course just knock on our door.

Granada 65 minutes
An hour's drive from our Finca is the historic city of Granada with the world-famous Alhambra (click here to book tickets). A huge historic palace from the Moorish era, very worthwhile, it is on the Unesco World Heritage List for a reason. The Albaucin district at the foot of the Alhambra, with nice restaurants and narrow alleys, is also well worth a visit. What is special about Granada is that you almost always see snow on the mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

Antequera 40 minutes
A special city, but less known in our province of Malaga. 30,000 inhabitants, nice center and beautiful Arena. Well worth a visit and a nice walk through the city center. Combines well with a walk on El Torcal, an impressive mountain range and the saltwater lagoon Fuente de Piedra. A salt lake where flamingos breed. And that too only 30 minutes from Finca Gordo, which makes it a nice day trip. In the morning a nice walk in the nature park and then around 2 pm lunch in the city. Shopping for the ladies and then back to our finca to take a refreshing dip in the pool. Of course you can still enjoy a sunset that never bores us.

Ronda 55 minutes
After a beautiful drive of about 1 hour you will reach Ronda, one of the oldest cities in Spain. Located on a mountain plateau of 2500 m above sea level. The city is best known for the El Tajo gorge that splits the old and new city, but is now connected again by the mighty bridge Puente Nuevo. Ronda is touristy, but definitely worth a day trip. Try to drive the outward journey differently than the return journey and also enjoy the special landscapes. We can present you a number of beautiful car routes and with that you will experience even more of the fantastic surroundings.

Cordoba 100 minutes
Another city that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We are, of course, talking about the Mezquita . First a Catholic Church, then demolished and in 756 a Mosque was built. After the last Moors were expelled from the region, the building was transformed into a cathedral again in 1236. Actually, the church is built around the Mosque. This has created a unique structure that is really worth a visit. But if you are in the city anyway, walk through the narrow streets. And if you have time left, visit the Medina Azahara just outside Cordoba. That is an old walled Arab city from the time of the Caliphate of Cordoba.

Marbella 60 minutes
Would you like to see how the jet set experiences the Costa del Sol, then take a day trip to Marbella. Marvel at the large yachts and expensive cars and enjoy the old town. The drive there is mainly between towers of hotels and apartments; you now know why we chose the other side of Malaga.

Day at the beach and sea
From our bed & breakfast you can reach the coast in no time, with the wonderful beaches of the Costa del Sol. In Málaga there are fantastic beaches to relax and there are plenty of cozy traditional eateries. The wide beaches at Torre del Mar are quieter, with excellent eateries and the so-called chiringuito's, beach bars where you can eat freshly grilled fish. A little further along the coast just past Nerja is the village of Maro, where there are beautiful quiet bays hidden between the mountains. If you want more excitement, the beaches at Torremolinos and Benalmádena are also an option.

Nature and hiking
It is recommended to put on your walking shoes and enjoy the surroundings. Beautiful walks can be made from the bed & breakfast. Or you can take the car and drive to el Torcal or Nerja, for example. And yes, if you can get a ticket then you should definitely walk the Caminito del Rey ! A bit crowded, but definitely a bucket list item. If this doesn't work, you can also take a spectacular hike at Canillas de Aceituno. The alternative to the caminito del rey.

At about a 1.5 hour drive from the bed & breakfast you are already on the slopes. From November to April you have the opportunity to enjoy the snow. Hiking, skiing, snowboarding or just enjoying the beautiful white view.

Our environment is mountainous, ideal for the trained cyclist. There are beautiful routes with both climbs and descents. On the coast it is possible to cycle flat. We own 2 e-bikes that can also be rented. Of course we also have contacts with bicycle rental companies that can arrange something for you.
