Luxury Villa in the Heart Andalucia

You might be happy to put your feet up and just relax at La Morera. However, should you choose to be more adventurous, here we'll give you a flavour of some of the historic sights and stunning countryside of Andalucia.

From the 8th C until the late 15th C this area of Spain was under the control of the invading Moors. From their period of occupation they left behind an abundance of historical sites. The magnificence of the Alhambra in Granada is legendary. However, there are many fortified Moorish towns and villages in the area with outstanding relics, mosques and gardens displaying exquisite taste from a highly cultured and civilised people. The breathtaking city of Ronda, astride a spectacular gorge, is fifteen minutes away and is a classic example of a fortified Moorish city - the old defensive wall, the area’s baths, mosques converted to churches by the Christians, and many other sites of archaeological interest. With the oldest bullring in Spain, Ronda justly claims to be the home of bullfighting. The ancient and ruined original city of Ronda La Vieja is only 20 minutes away.

From the annual April Feria in Seville to the Festival de Jerez, dedicated to Flamenco, there are festivals throughout the year devoted to traditional Andalucian dance and music.

The lush Grazalema National Park, which has some of the most wonderful walking, cycling and horse –riding, is a 15 minutes drive Here too can be found some of the famous 'white villages’ (Los Pueblos Blancos) from Zahara to Grazalema itself. Many others, including Arcos, Setenil, Gaucin and Casares are all within an easy journey and well worth exploring.
