Sun & wine route


Sun and Wine, what a combination!

You will probably have heard about the beaches in Torrox but its historic centre full of flowers and Moorish architecture is worth a visit. This is precisely the reason why this village, known to have “The Best Climate in Europe”, will be the first stop. A guided tour on its historic streets and after this visit a drive to the beautiful village of Cómpeta, where you will be taken on a tour guide into its Moorish, decorated streets. Cómpeta is known in all the region to produce the best wines, so visiting a wine cellar with a wine-tasting is a must. In fact, one of those muscatel wines that you will taste in this wine cellar was served on the wedding of King Felipe VI of Spain and Queen Letizia. The last stop will be Sayalonga, where you will enjoy an Andalusian lunch made with local products and a glass of wine. To finish this lovely tour, we will take a walk through the village before taking you back to your accommodation.

Olive oil & mountain route

Become an expert in olive oil with this tour. Spain is the biggest oil producer worldwide and Andalusia is the region known to have the biggest number of olive trees, so if you like olive oil and want to know a bit more about it, you came to the right place. The tour will start by visiting a centenarian olive plantation, where we will teach you about how to harvest the olives and the traditional tools used in this procedure, a unique experience! After that a drive to an Andalusian cortijo (country house) which has its own oil mill, where you will learn about the process of oil production. This house also has an old stone olive mill from XVIII century and you will learn how olive oil was made in the past. Lastly you will enjoy an olive oil tasting to whet everyone’s appetite before lunch. After this visit you will go deeper into Montes de Málaga and we will have lunch in the oldest inn in Andalusia and enjoy a typical plato de los montes (a typical dish of this area). This place is called el Museo del Bandolero (a bandit museum) and it is a special place with lots of history. After lunch you will visit the villages of Alfarnate and Alfarnatejo,

located in what is called los Pirineos de la Axarquía (the Pyrinees of the Axarquia). Both are beautiful villages in the middle of the mountains and surrounded by olive trees. This landscape is completely opposite of those we are used to on the coast.
