View of Iznate, Axarquia

With its fertile valleys, soaring mountain peaks, tiny hidden villages and cheerfully scruffy coastal towns, the Axarquia is very much the ‘real’ Andalucia.

Whether you want to immerse yourself in Andalucian culture, challenge yourself to the cycling routes, relax in the sun with great food and wine or hike in the mountains, there’s no shortage of things to keep you busy.
