Knowing that Villas & Fincas has some country properties for sale in Los Reales Estepona I decided last weekend to drive up the mountain and explore the area for myself. And what a stunning nature I discovered! The Sierra Bermeja is something truly special!
Living in Andalusia
About half year ago my family’s big dream finally came true: We bought a villa in El Madroñal, Benahavis. It was a big step for us to leave Finland behind and to move to Andalusia, but I think it was absolutely the best decision ever.
As mentioned in earlier blogs, the villa area La Celima in the mountains near Casares is a hidden gem not easy to find elsewhere on the Andalusian countryside and yet so close to the coast and the beaches. The last half year several villas with stunning seaviews have been sold in this area and the demand continues!
How surprised was I driving towards the ‘Sierra Norte de Sevilla’, towards Las Navas de la Concepción, Contantina and Cazalla de la Sierra to find these lush refreshening lakes. Is this really the interior of Andalusia?
Tonight we will celebrate again de traditional summernight party on the beach: La Noche de San Juan. Held every year on the night from the 23rd to the 24th of June. Casares is preparing the wooden statue on the beach which will be set to fire at 0.00hrs to chase away all bad spirits.
Living in Andalusia isn’t just about surviving your daily life. I can tell you from my own experience that it is worth it to participate in the local and provincial parties of the area you live in, as it will enrich you with new knowledge on the Andalusian culture at the same time as you’re having a nice afternoon with your neighbours and friends.
