Our guesthouse is located in the village Sorvilán (on the map encircle in red). Sorvilán is located at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and is a typical Spanish mountain village with no more than thousand inhabitants.
The beaches (Costa Tropical) are small and the trappings of mass-tourism are thankfully absent. The Costa Tropical, situated between the Costa del Sol of Málaga and the Costa de Almería, is a privileged strip of coastline which boasts the very best conditions and attractions necessary to provide an excellent holiday. Its situation on the Mediterranean, its closeness to Africa and to the Sierra Nevada, with the highest peaks on the Peninsula, protect the Costa Tropical from the cold northerly winds. The result is a subtropical micro-climate, with 320 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of around 20ºC, where all kinds of tropical fruit is grown in its lush valleys.
Cliffs, coves and long beaches make up the landscape of this coveted coastline, conquered by numerous civilisations. Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs have fought over it and left behind traces of their cultures.
The Costa Tropical is surrounded by areas with a long tourist tradition, always striving after the best to offer: a healthy and mild climate, villages with interesting histories, an attractive inheritance of monuments and hospitable people, always ready to cordially welcoming visitors.
Far away from mass tourism, the Costa Tropical remains a true secret; fresh fish, vegetables and fruit can be enjoyed almost everywhere. Like being a full member of the community, you can be a participant of the traditional ferias, celebrated in spring and summer, all along the 50-mile long coastal region.
