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 you temp 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 nature close to delightful small white villages, where time has been standing still for decades and the "mañana" culture still is ongoing. Friendly people and no stress but quietness and thrue enjoy of life.
We have had it renovated (2007) for you to enjoy your next holidays in peaceful surroundings.

In our garden you find lots of cosy places with sunchairs and benches to relax and enjoy the sun, whether you choose to be amoung the other guests or on your one, there is plenty of room for everyone.

When the sun is shining and you need to cool down the tempting lake is just a short walk away with its fresh and clean water to swim in.

The garden has lots of wild nature and typical Spanish vegetations suchs as olive trees, pines and almonds which will be in blossom from January to March with the most beautiful white and pink flowers.

Beds of wild flowers and vigorous plants covers the whole 50.000 square meter plot.
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.
