Climbing Holidays - Accommodation in Andalucia

Our base in southern Spain is a recently reformed and comfortable property in Villanueva del Rosario, which has been diveded in two independent flats but can also be hired as a bigger house. This pretty mountain town lies in the hills 35 km north of Malaga and has easy access to a vast range of adventurous activities. The two flats have all modern amenities and there are several accommodation options that can cater for groups of 2 - 9 people. It is a perfect base for an outdoor activities and climbing holiday.

Bed Sit Apartment

The area around Villanueva del Rosario itself has a lot of climbing with many routes of all grades from 3 to 9b+, with some crags being within walking distance and most of them are only a 5 min drive.

The cave containing one of the world's hardest routes - Chilam Balam 9b - is easily seen from the house and can be reached by a 20 minute walk.

The good news is that, apart from the famous hard routes, it has many routes graded 6s, 7s and above (with a few 5s as well)

Excellent crags such as Villanueva de Cauche, Archidona, Loja and El Torcal de Antequera are only 15 -20 minutes drive. The popular area of El Chorro and Turon are about 40 km away

All these areas are in the new Rockfax El Chorro guide.

There is also some excellent bouldering, hiking, horse riding and mountain biking in this area.

For those who would like to base themselves at El Chorro we can arrange accommodation, guiding and instruction on-site. We are associated with The Olive Branch which provides a wide range of accommodation from the use of a whole whole house to private rooms or camping with the use of cooking facilities.

Beaches are only 40 minutes away and, if you fancy a bit of skiing, the Sierra Nevada is only 1.5 hours away. The hills behind the village are also ideal for hiking and mountain biking with a myriad of trails that cater for all levels of ability.

There are travel directions to the house from Malaga and Granada airports on the Travel pages in the table at the bottom of the page.
