We didn't want to be in the tourist hot spot on the beach but wanted the hot weather, and a very safe tranquil location that we would all enjoy (we have 4 children ages 3 to 12). Karina's house is beautiful and extremely spacious. It accommodated all 6 of us easily. It has everything you could need and more again. It's located up in the hills behind Malaga up a long winding road (great for cycling) and the final bit is along a 2mile dirt track that is very steep in places and quite rutted. Our hire car managed it fine. Mountain biking over this track to get to the main road was great fun! The surrounding villages are very pretty and we made a few trips down into Malaga and once to Granada too. I highly recommend Karina for presenting a beautiful property and being exceptionally helpful from start to finish. The views around the property across the mountains are just absolutely stunning panoramas too.
