Welcome to Cortijo Los Capitos
We offer the option of a beautiful, modern and high quality furnished apartment with kitchen and a delightful pool-side suite for a fun-filled holiday and relaxing days in Andalusia. Here you have a wonderful view of the nature reserve, the Sierra Tejeda, and have a direct view of the highest peak, over 2,000 meters, the mountain “La Maroma”.
Holiday in Spain, especially in Andalusia, has a lot to offer. Here you will find the beautiful beaches of the Costa del Sol in the immediate vicinity and a few kilometers from the coast experience a wonderful mountain scenery. Between the coast and the mountains, here lies the Cortijo Los Capitos.
Cortijo Los Capitos is located in the Axarquia, the easternmost region of the province of Malaga. The Axarquia extends from the Costa del Sol, including the famous resort of Torre del Mar, via Velez-Malaga – a larger, typically Spanish town that is only slightly affected by tourism – further into the mountains to the reservoir in La Viñuela. The Siera Tejeda forms the natural boundary of this beautiful and rugged region.
From Malaga airport you drive the coastal highway A7 to the east (direction Almeria) and after about 30 minutes reach the exit Torre del Mar / Velez-Malaga. From there, you drive the well-developed national road A 356 past Velez-Malaga direction Vinuela. A few kilometers before Vinuela is a branch towards Canillas de Aceituno and the natural reserve the Sierra Tejeda. Our location “Cortijo Los Capitos” is about 5 kilometers before the beautiful mountain white village Canillas de Aceituno.
The famous Mudejar route, so-named due the the historical muslim architecture, passes our location and winds for 40 kilometers to the impressive and richly historical white villages Canillas de Aceituno, Sedella, Salares, Archez and Arenas.
Within a radius of 30 kilometers you can observe the varied agricultural activities of the region, reflected in the names avacado-route, wine and rasin-routes.
The nearest villages are La Vinuela with its beautiful resevoir, surrounded by mountains and Canillas de Aceituno on the slopes of “La Maroma”, both about 5 kilometers from Cortijo Los Capito. From here begin several mountain hikes of varying difficulty. The nearest resort on the Costa del Sol is Torre del Mar, only 15 minutes driving.
The location is therefore an ideal starting point for nature – and beach lovers.
