Discover the essence of travelling

La Axarquia, Andalucía’s secret gem

La Axarquia, unknown and real Andalusia

La Axarquia is probably the last Mediterranean gem of its kind. Although Andalusia is one of the most touristic destinations in Europe, Axarquia is an unknown and little-travelled pearl in the Mediterranean and it has managed to keep the charm and beauty of its breathtaking landscapes intact. Without a doubt, La Axarquia is the most exclusive way to find out the essence of traveling to Andalusia. An exclusive cortijo will be your accommodation to discover the unique flavours, history and culture of the region. Some unique experiences you can have in Axarquia: beach going, cultural activities, golf, horse riding, hiking, scuba diving, yachting and tasting its impressive cuisine.

Located in the easternmost part of Malaga, La Axarquia is probably the last secret of the Mediterranean Sea. This area, where the Moors settled in after being expelled from the Arab kingdom of Granada, has been able to maintain its charm over the centuries.

 La Axarquia, best climate in Europe!

Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the south and by three different mountain ranges to the north, Axarquia has a warm and sunny weather all through the year. With an average of 320 sunny days per year, there isn’t a sunnier coast in Spain.  That’s why La Axarquia has the distinction of having the best climate in Europe! The sun, impressive coastline, Mediterranean forest cliffs, small white Andalusian villages and typical gastronomy will leave an indelible memory on those travellers looking for new and unique destinations.

 

Traditional cuisine

Fresh and organic food in local market visitIn La Axarquia you can still taste traditional dishes, handed down generation to generation by word of mouth. The gastronomy of the region blends the typical spanish dishes with a touch of Arab influence. Don´t miss the wines, bread with olive oil, fresh-fish dishes near the seaside or the gazpacho a cold soup made of tomatoes. Discover the Total Gastronomy Experience where you will have the chance to visit local markets, learn how to cook traditional recipes and taste delicious wines. In Axarquia you will find the real taste of Andalusia!

 

 Exclusive Cortijo accommodation

You will sleep in a unique  accommodation: private cortijo, a typical building used in the past for agricultural purposes, turned into a luxurious villa with the comforts of a five star hotel. Located in the Sierra de la Almijara,  it overlooks the Mediterraean Sea and on a clear day you will be able to see the Morocco coasts! This cortijo has a strategic location, it’s only twenty minutes away from the coast and just two hours away from Córdoba and Granada. It’s the perfect starting-point to discover the essence of Andalusia.
