CASA MAGEL is surrounded by beautiful scenery, a walker’s paradise. Lots to do in the area. Walk the famous Camino Del Rey. The beautiful turquoise lakes of Ardales, Quad Biking, horse riding. Visit Antequera, a beautiful town with the most churches in Spain (27), it is only a 25-minute drive away. Close by is El Torcal with the amazing landscape just like Fred Flintstones land. Great for star gazing. Visit the Wolf Park and see Wolves in their natural habitat. Howling nights when the moon is full.
We are an hour away from the beautiful city of Malaga, the international airport and the Costa Del Sol. Our little town of Valle De Abdalajis is very typically Spanish, friendly with tapas bars and restaurants and a couple of supermarkets. Plus local shops. We also have a fantastic museum, (our town dates back to the Roman era), when it was called Nescania.

Rainy Weather Activities: I’m hoping some creative readers might have some suggestions for visiting, adult guests. All of my planned activities for a week’s visit involved outdoor activities. I can’t think of interesting places to go, in the rain, to introduce my cousins to the area. I’ve checked places within a few hours drive to see if they have better weather but no luck. I would great appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks in advance for your thoughtful ideas. Michelle/La Herradura
