Sport and leisure
In 1999, the 40,000-hectare area around the Malaga region’s highest mountain, La Maroma, was declared one of Spain’s natural parks.
The park also forms a natural border between the Malaga and Granada region. On Malaga side, the towns / municipalities: Canillas de Aceituno, Canillas de Albaida, Competa, Frigiliana, Nerja, Salares and Sedella meet up to the park.
There are many different animal species in the park, and you can experience mountain goats, squirrel, vulture, owls and a very rich birdlife.
The vegetation is different depending on the season and beautiful no matter when of the year you visit it.
Go to the kitchen with Stig.
Start for example the day in Malaga’s beautiful peat market with shopping, finish with a local snack and a glass of wine. In the afternoon we go to the kitchen and emphasize our own 3-6 course gourmet dinner, which is enjoyed jointly.
Price: Daily price please enquire.
