a secluded outdoor area, a lovely place to enjoy the plants and flowers all the year round in the small thriving garden. The bathroom has a full sized bath with shower, vanity unit, toilet and bidet. El Torcal National Park, with its unique natural limestone sculptures and various walking routes, lies above the village, and is 15 minutes away by car. Beyond El Torcal the beautiful historic town of Antequera with its many ancient churches, distinctive architecture and prehistoric caves is a 25 minute car journey from Villanueva. El Chorro Gorge, Cordoba, the White Towns, Seville, Granada and Gibraltar are day trips by car. Malaga and Malaga Airport are approximately 45 minutes by car and the drive to Costa Del Sol resorts takes about one hour.
The village of Villanueva De La Concepción is a lovely, friendly, safe place where guests may enjoy the lively, festive traditions of a typically vibrant Andalucian village. Within short walking distances there are traditional bars, restaurants, supermarkets, shops and other facilities, such as the municipal swimming pool, a large pool in grass lawn surroundings with its open air bar with views towards the Torcal. There is another wonderful pool in the mountains about 15 minutes away.cheerful inebriates, many in fancy dress: the reward nowadays is a commemorative Tee shirt… There Villanueva De La Concepción: the view of an ex-pat, who stayed at the apartment:-
“Why Villanueva De La Concepción? I’ve stepped back in time to when dad was a lad:- I can’t smell the Hovis baking, but I think I know nearly everyone. I can park almost anywhere I like, and leave it unlocked… A good friend hasn’t locked his front door for the last 10 years, and now can’t find his key… I went in a shop once, and Nicolas, the owner, chased me up the street, as I’d left the Serrano ham on the counter. I have owed the man in the Moto shop 10 Euros since last year… Visitors keep coming back to check us out. My daughter-in-law, and several others, keep in touch with what’s going on in “Concepcion” through Face Book. Tom, the owner of Xebar, our “English bar”, keeps them regularly informed… Last week we had our feria: it started with rock night and free beer in the bottom square. I got caught up in a parade: children wearing satirical papier-mache heads: I recognised the mayor among other local celebrities. Friday night saw the local flamenco classes performing, followed by an exceptional performance by a professional troupe. Earlier in the day the Ruta De Tapas: 13 bars and 13 tapas… As a student in the 60’s we did the King Street Run, which was a pint in all 8 pubs, and a commemorative tie for those who completed the Run. There were two bull fights: the real and the silly: the latter when our local frustrated toreadors dress up and “fight” little bulls; other local heroes rush into the arena, as stretcher bearers, or as priests to deliver the last rites… In the winter our mayor laid on rock bands, live music, in our bars… What else? There are several great places to eat and drink, including Rincon De La Villa and Bar Torfa. Our local mountain, El Torcal, is from another planet with its limestone sculptures. Antequera, our nearest big town, the safest place in Andalucia, is a heritage centre, that hosts a free Blues Festival in July: late night atmospheric blues music high above the town in Plaza Santa Maria. Our nearest city, Malaga, has it all: the Picasso Museum, excellent restaurants, tapas bars, fishing villages nearby.”

We had a lovely holiday staying in Apartamento Buena Vista. We were at the pool every day, and eating out in the village in the evening. We enjoyed breakfasting al fresco on the balcony, and some of us enjoyed a siesta in a cool darkened room. Our internet addict was well provided for. We liked visiting Antequera, Malaga, and El Chorro lake. The...

9 Arches Andalucia
I live very happily with my wife, Nalini, in Santa Maria Del Cerro, near the village of Villanueva De La Concepcion. I was teaching in England, and Nalini was an HMI, when this life journey began for us townies in 1999. We bought land, a green field plot on a hillside, and decided where to site our house on the land, and what it would be like. Later we also bought two rental properties, to realise the dream of working for ourselves in our chosen environment. Without intruding on our guests' privacy, we like to impart our enthusiasm for what we value and appreciate in our life here in rural Andalucia. We try to imbibe the culture of this people, inasmuch as a foreigner can gain an insight. For the most part we like the local people we meet for their warmth, their self-possession, and their unpretentious charm. To relax I explore the villages, towns, cities and countryside of Spain. I enjoy eating out with friends and family. We entertain our children and grandchildren here. The beauty of nature and the climate encourage, and enable us, to spend time working and relaxing outdoors. Life here, which is so different from what we were used to in England, continues to please and satisfy us: we are still “on holiday” every day. Nalini is a practising artist, who is inspired as a result of what she experiences here in Andalucia. When I visit England, I am conscious of missing what I leave behind here, such as the bright light and space – as in wide open spaces, as in enough space to park ten cars; as in having space in the day to talk to my neighbours. Here I relax, and enjoy the simple pleasures of driving into the village, the first view of the Torcal a few minutes into the journey, or going round the Torcal, and later the view of the castle on the approach to Antequera. Here, I, the boy from the East End of London, know that I have come a long way, as I gaze across the swimming pool at distant mountains, but I also enjoy days out with family and friends down on the coast.
