Villanueva de la Concepcion, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
Beautiful old stone built Cortijo ( farmhouse ) lovingly restored by the owners David and Diana Worthy who back in the UK ran the Crich Pottery in Derbyshire. Stunning rural location , 40 minutes from Malaga airport in the shadow of El Torcal Natural Park near Antequera . Here the owners have created a small working farm where you are welcome to visit with the alpacas , donkeys ,dogs ,cats and other 4 legged friends . Just brilliant for children and all who love the countryside.

Good size, natural spring water swimming pool. Loads of interest in close proximity. David & Diana were perfect hosts -...More
