We were lucky to spend a week at the beautiful Escuela. We were in Spain for a friends wedding at a nearby Hotel (Cortija Brava) and to be honest we would not have looked at this part of the Costa Del Sol for a summer break. Well my thoughts of concrete jungles and rowdy brits could not have been further from reality. In the Escuela you are so close to all that you would need to experience of classic Spain. Velez Malaga is only a 8 Euro taxi ride away and it has an array of lovely restaurants to choose from. Food is both plentiful and great value (no tourist rates here), If you are looking for a lunchtime drink and a tapas then both the two roadside restaurants, El Trapiche and El Cruce are only a walk away.
The Stars of the Escuela are without doubt Toni and Ima, who let you have the privacy that you might want with the knowledge and enthusiasm that was truly refreshing. 200 characters is not enough to describe our week, thank you Toni and Ima.

A small, secluded complex with three guest rooms,(two with kitchens and all en-suite) in an old converted rural schoolhouse, for the discerning tourist wishing to be in the unspoilt countryside of Southern Spain, away from the tourists but still close to coast and mountains. Beautiful gardens with pool, BBQ, table tennis, a big trampoline and a guest lounge with libary, where breakfast is also served each morning. La Escuela esta a tan solo 5 minutos de Velez-Malaga y menos de 10 minutos de la costa. Y hay dos bar/restaurantes a unos minutos andando del complejo. ... more less
