In an old orchard, located in the heart of the Sierra de las Nieves, between the villages Tolox and Ardite, 40 minutes drive from Malaga we find Ecotourism La Cabra Verde.
La Cabra Verde offers two detached cottages, each with its’ own swimming pool. Located beside the Rio Grande river, surrounded by orange trees and some ancient carob trees. The house of the owners is also located on site.
The Sierra de las Nieves National Reserve consists mainly of pine trees and holm oaks but you can also find the ancient Spanish fir (pinsapos) one of the few trees that survived the ice ages.
Near the cottages you can walk through a eucaliptus forest to the river Rio Grande; paddle in the crystal clear water; climb to the top of the hill Ardite to see the magnificent views over the surroundings and, of course, help in the vegetable garden.
In the Sierra de la Nieves there are many hiking trails. The white villages Tolox, Ojen, Ardite, Alozaina, Junquera, Casarabonela and El Burgo are here to visit and there are several companies that organise outdoor activities such as canyoning, climbing and horse or donkey riding.
La Cabra Verde is the ideal place to enjoy nature and relax. The silence here is broken only by bird song or the sound of water.
