Beautiful, romantic and very nicely decorated studio apartments on the 1st floor in a more than 100 years old reformed Andalusian farmhouse located between the mountains, the national park and the lake - without a house in sight - pure nature! 150 meters to the lake and just 4 km from the world famous King's Walkway "Caminito del Rey".

The space
Our beautiful rural farmhouse has been reformed and offers you a wonderful break in one of the most peaceful and unique areas in Andalucia next to the lake “Embalse de Guadalhorce” only 45 mins. from Málaga airport. Here you can enjoy the silence or challenge your body in the amazing surroundings. A true paradise for people who enjoy active life.

El Arpa offers holiday apartments for 2 persons in a green area on a 50.000 sqm plot going down to the lake. Here you can enjoy life no matter if you choose to relax in the beautiful surroundings under the southern sun enjoying the peace - or if you prefer to use one of the many activity options that nature offers you and which is just outside the doors of the holiday apartments.


An incredible possibility to experience a unique holiday break in one of the most beautiful areas in the Malaga region.


Come and experience the real Spain, breathing the clear and fresh air in the finest natural surroundings close to delightful small white villages, where time has been standing still for decades and the "mañana" culture still is ongoing. Friendly people with no stress but still live life to the full.

Other things to note
El Arpa offers relaxing holiday accommodation in six separate self-catering apartments for two people with a double or two single beds. The apartments are comfortably furnished and the Spanish charm is well kept. All with a well-equipped kitchen with four-burner hob, frigde with freezer, table setting for four people and an equipped bathroom with shower. To make your arrival comfortable we provide you with a little welcome pack to make your first day easier.

Every apartment has it's own private entrance and in front a terrace with wooden furnitures to make your Spanish nights unforgettable. While enjoying the beautiful view over the lake you can prepare a little tapas and not to forget enjoy the taste of delicious Spanish wines. Just outside your apartment we have made a little herb garden and you are more than welcome to use a tuft of tasteful Rosemary or Oregano in your cooking.

Málaga, Andalusia, Spain

Our finca is situated near Ardales and El Chorro, this area is a thrue Mekka for nature lovers and outdoor entusiasts, no matter age.

The lakes are devided into three different lakes called; Embalse de Gaitanejo, Embalse del Conde de Guadalhorce and the biggest of them all Embalse del Gualdalteba-Guadalhorce, which is the one in front of our finca.

By the lake you will find different restaurants and picnic sites as the area is a quite popular excursion spot. Here you have the option to do different watersports such as kayak or canoeing. You can even fish in the lake, we have a couple of fine fishing rods for free disposal.


Do you enjoy walking or mountainbiking you will find several marked walking paths across the fields. And the mountains behind our finca have some of Spain's best possibilities for mountain climbing. Paragliding and Rapelling is also very popular.


The neighbouring villages are Alora, Antequera, Pizzara, Bobadilla and Campillos. El Torcal is close by and spectaculary formed from limestone weathered over eons of time and its moon-like landscape makes it a "must see" attraction.


By El Chorro you find the most overwhelming natural gorge, here an enormous rock has been divided as with an axe and the edge is very sharp and narrow, it is called La Garganta del Chorro; the throat of the spring. The water runs from the lakes and a bridge connects the two rock sides where the train goes through on the Malaga-Cordoba run.

Alcazar de Bobastro by El Chorro is the remainings of an old Moorish fortress and the ruins of the first chuch in Spain; Iglesia Rupestre de Bobastro.
