Birding Axarquia

Thinking of a Birding Break or a rental holiday in the area?

Casa Collado

Bob and Jenny offer two possibilities for those interested in Birding and/or Holistic Therapy at their mountain-top home or just time on their own (or with friends and family) in a self-catering apartment in the beautiful Spanish village of Benaudalla de Velez on the Salobrena - Granada road close to Motril.

Short stay visits above Lake Vinuela

For an all inclusive short break taking advantage of either/both bird-watching and receiving some alternative (holistic) therapy including collection and return from/to Malaga Airport plus all meals plus access to the Internet and use of the outdoor swimming pool in season, why not stay at Casa Collado in the mountains above Lake Vinuela in the beautiful Axarquia area of the Costa del Sol.  For more information CLICK HERE.

Two-bedroom apartment in Benaudalla de Velez

Prefer to do your own thing?  Then we have a two-bedroom/ two-bathroom apartment for rent in a typical Spanish village about 6 km west of Motril.  The coast at Salobrena can be reached in 15 minutes whilst the ski slopes in the Sierra de Navada are less than an hour away.  Similarly, you can be at Granada Airport, Granada city centre or the Alhambra in less than 45 minutes.  The perfect base for enjoying sea and mountain. 

The apartment is fully furnished and fitted and includes DVD, British and European television.  There is a master bedroom with double bed and en-suite plus a second twin bedroom and adjoining bathroom.  Immediately opposite is the local bakery for fresh morning and evening bread, whilst nearby can be found shops, banks and bars plus there is a regular bus service to both Motril and Granada.  The new motorway has been extended and should be completed in 2010 meaning that Malaga Airport is only about an hour away.

Birding opportunities abound in the area including mountains, the (relatively) new reserve at the Charca de Suarez in Motril plus the adjoining marsh and a trip up to Almeria to visit the local lagoons or even Cabo de Gata is easily achieved (even quicker when the final stretch of the new motorway is completed).
