This area of Andalucía is particularly famous for its white towns, and Cortijo El Peso is close to many of these.
The area is rich in history, having been the final frontier for the Reconquest (when the Catholics drove the Moors from Spain in the 15th century) and many of the villages, including nearby Gaucín, still have the remains of Moorish castles.
Further back in time, the area was once occupied by the Romans, and Roman remains have been found on the farm. The ‘white town’ of Gaucín is only 4kms away.
Gaucín is well known for its panoramic views of southern Spain, and on a clear day (of which there are many) you can easily see the sea, Gibraltar, and the coast of Africa.
Málaga airport is two hours’ drive, served by many of the budget and charter airlines as well as the major carriers.
Gibraltar airport is only one hour’s drive.
