Baja, 44, 29770 Torrox

Guest review score

8.4 from 24 reviews

From the terrace of Hotel Al-Andalus you can enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding mountains, The limestone peaks of 1,500m around Grazalema are the first barriers that clouds from the Atlantic meet, causing plentiful rainfall. A unique microclimate has developed where a wide range of flora flourishes, such as the rare Spanish fir, which is pinsapo, that grows in the Sierra de Pinar close to Grazalema. This charming rural hotel sits in the town centre of Torrox, highly valued, in Axarquia, a region well-known for enjoying the best climate in Europe, Signposted routes with names like Ruta del Vino link groups of villages in one-day drives along the snaking mountain roads. The so called capital of the area is Vélez Málaga, 4 kms north of Torre del Mar which is fairly unremarkable, although the hill-top Muslim castle is worth using up some camera film. The highest mountains in the area stretch east from the Boquete de Zafarraya. The abovementioned Cómpeta makes a good base for a stay. There is a "Museo de Vino" here where you can taste the locally made wine and which also sells locally made ceramics and has a good restaurant serving traditional local dishes. A few kilometres down the valley from Cómpeta there is an exquisite Almohad-style minaret next to the church. A scenic road winds west through the villages of Salares, Sedella and Canillas de Aceituna eventually linking up with the A 335 north of Velez Malaga which links up with the new highway to Malaga and beyond. The pleasant rooms are equipped with balconies, and above all, from which you can enjoy the views of this ancient Arab settlement, The drive inland from Malaga city, in the Antequera/Granada direction, takes you on a journey to the real Andalucia. Colmenar is one of the most important villages in this area, being the Capital of the Malaga Mountain villages. It is just 35 kilometers inland from Malaga, on the "Carretera de Colmenar", a road that cuts and winds up through the Malaga Mountains, until you reach the village at 696 meters above sea level. This place has all the charm of an interior town, very much appreciated, surrounded by buildings and emblematic monuments that form part of the Ruta de Almanzor and the Ruta histórica, Today, rural tourism comprises a large part of the local economy. However, the area is still breathtakingly beautiful and has not been spoilt by the interest and influx of foreigners. The main attractions are the area's dramatic hill and mountain scenery, its unspoilt, white washed villages and the strong sweet wine that is made from sun dried grapes. Because of the region's sub-tropical climate, this is also a region where some of the more tropical fruits, such as mango and kiwi are grown. This is a place in which you can feel at home, highly valued, next to the warm fireplace and surrounded by the “torroxeña” style decoration, The Axarquía is excellent for hiking and several companies now run walking holidays from the UK, centred around Competa. Horse trekking is similarly very popular here. The landscape is riven by deep valleys lined with terraces and irrigation channels that date back to Muslim times. Hotel Al-Andalus also offers you the typical cuisine of the region, The village of Comares in one of the highest in Andalucía it can be spied for miles around, rising high above the surrounding countryside. Frigiliana is said by many to be one of the prettiest in Andalucia. Nearby Torrox is the lesser visited of the two. But with the beach only 3 km away it also boasts the charm of a coastal town, Until around a decade ago the Axarquía region of Andalucía was little known. Then, northern European expatriates discovered the pretty hilltop village of Cómpeta, started buying up some of the run-down 'fincas' and farmhouses in the area and putting it on the map., Located in a high valley over 800m in the Sierra del Endrinal and dominated by the magnificent rocky outcrop known as Peñon Grande, the pretty mountain village of Grazalema is most popular base for visitors to the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. The park is a vast protected area of rugged limestone mountains, which are famous for being the rainiest place in Spain. These high levels of precipitation account for the verdant vegetation in the surrounding countryside., The San Miguel Castle is open daily from 10.30 to 13.30 and from 16.00 to 18.30. Entry for adults is 1.95 Euros and for children and senior citizens 1.35 Euros., Close by is the Parque del Majuelo, a pretty botanical garden containing Europe's largest collection of subtropical plants, with more than 400 species, the majority from Brazil and Cuba. In the park you will also find the ruins of the fish salting "factory" which was founded by the Phoenicians in 4th Century BC. Climb up to the castle for a good overall view., The Archeological Museum "Cueva Siete Palaciosm" is open daily from 10.30 to 13.30 and from 16.00 to 18.30.
