A different way to see Axarquia is to stay inland at a guest house where bed and breakfast is provided and where you can choose either to relax or join in with adventures and activities.
Just such a place is provided by Els and Frank Mahieu, at their beautiful, fully equipped, family guest house set in the idyllic surroundings of the nature park Sierra Tejeda, near the mountain village of Alcaucin.
Build in traditional rustic architecture, this location has its own natural spring with peaceful lakes and fountains surrounded by an old walnut tree, cipresses, palms, lemons, oranges, figs, and olives. There is also a spice garden and an organically cultivated vegetable area. This is an ideal place to find peace and enjoy the breathtaking views, fauna, flora, walking, sunbathing on and around the romantic patios or have a glass of wine, tapas, icecream, snack or BBQ - whatever you desire!
The spacious garden is equipped with a large private outdoor swimming pool with comfortable sun loungers and tables for hot, lazy days. Other facilities include fitness, table tennis, petanque, a play area, a small English library and games.
For more adventure and nature- excursions lovers, there is a possibility for Yamaha quad off road trips, mountain biking, surfing, kayaking, scuba-diving, paragliding, paramotor, horse riding, rock climbing, boat trips, jeep safaris and golf.
Alcaucin is also a great centre for exploring Andalucia.
