Ardales

Ardales

The Guadalhorce river has sliced through limestone to create a spectacular gorge 50km northwest of Malaga, the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, otherwise known as the Garganta del Chorro. Its 4km length has sheer walls towering up to 400m in places, while its width is only 10m wide at certain points.

The cave complex situated in the extreme west of the Serrezuela, at about 600 metres altitude above sea level and has a geological age of around 2.5 million years. It has been un-changed for the last 30.000 years. It is a few km east of the village of Ardales.

The rural village of Ardales, well known to Spaniards who spend summers at its reservoir-side campgrounds, is perched along the border of the Ronda mountains. It offers more than stunning countryside and fresh air, however, as those who take the time to enter the town will find. History has been good to Ardales - at least from tourist office's point of view.

Set in Ardales, 37 km from Mijas, El Patio Andalú offers a shared lounge and free WiFi.

Each unit is fully fitted with a washing machine, a TV, a sofa and desk, as well as a fireplace. There is also a dining area and a kitchenette equipped with a dishwasher, a microwave, and a fridge.
