Staying at Casa Sarandy is a holiday on the 'campo':
El Torcal de Antequera Natural Park Reserve has a surreal, almost eerie feel to it. Here millions of years of wind and rain erosion produced some of the most spectacular limestone scenery found anywhere in Europe.
There are three set hiking routes through the reserve. A green (1,5km), yellow (3km) and the subida al Torcal Alto (7km circular). Defenitely a fantastic day out for the whole family.
Andalucía has 24 national parks, some of which you can explore from Casa Sarandy. Marked trails take you over wooded hills and bare mountain peaks, along fields full of wild flowers or goat herds. Our favorites: Montes de Málaga (Colmenar ± 35 min.), Sierra de las Nieves (Tolox ± 1h35), Sierra Nevada (± 1h50) and Sierra de Tejeda (Canillas de Aceituna ± 1h10).
A good alternative to the often busy beaches is a day at the lakes of Ardales (± 1h10), Viñuela (± 40 min.) or Iznájar (± 50 min.). Here you and your family can cool down in a beautiful, natural environment.
Just outside the city of Málaga, ± 35 min. drive from Casa Sarandy, you have the Botanical garden La Concepción (250,000m²). Here you will find a very large collection of plants and trees from all over the world. There are various hiking trails that lead you along the most beautiful places.
By the way, entrance is free on Sunday afternoons.
A few kilometers outside the center of Nerja, you can visit “The Cathedral of the Paleolithic”. This beautiful cave with its wonderfully shaped stalagmites and stalactites should certainly not be missing from your holiday program. Welcome to a unique world underground.
