Owner Location Comment
Villanueva de la concepcion is situated in Malaga province in the heart of Andalucia , Southern Spain on the edge of the natural park known as El Torcal. The Sierra del Torcal is an immense mass of limestone which rises to an altitude of 1336m above sea level , having been sculpted by wind and rain over millions of years to form weird and unusual rock formations. Defined by this harsh but stunningly beautiful landscape of mountains and rock , this is rural Spain at it's best.
The surrounding countryside is a mixture of arable land, olive and almond trees, holm and cork oak.Interspersed amongst the hills are numerous goat tracks and the sound of goat bells along with their herders is never far away.
