Peace Cottage is located in the lovely untouched hamlet of Llano Almendra, simply pronounced Yano Almendra. This is nestled between the villages of Benamargosa and Riogordo, where there are shops, restaurants and banks. Riogordo is situated 39 kilometres from Malaga City and 46 kilometres from the coast at Torre del Mar. The village has an altitude of 400 metres, and lies on the scenic Route of ‘Olive Oil and Mountains.’
Benamargosa lies 37 kilometres from Malaga and 14 kilometres from the coast at Torre del Mar, on a fertile flat area surrounding the river ‘La Cueva’ at an altitude of 100 metres. It is surrounded by small hills and tropical groves and is on the scenic Route of ‘Sun and Avocado.’
This beautiful unspoilt part of Andalucía comes under the protected arm of the stunning mountain top village of Comares. Which in the past has played it’s part in helping defend one of its many smaller feeder villages from numerous religious predators.
The cottage is part of one of one of the oldest buildings in the hamlet and although parts have been upgraded the character shines throughout and has even survived the threat of being flooded to accommodate a dam, a fate that was to be the destiny of the nearby village which is now Lake Vinuela.
The setting is lovely and although it would be practical to hire a car to fully enjoy what this amazing part of Andalucía has to offer, walkers will love the diversity of switching between river bed walks, mountain climbs and valley rambling. The cottage looks out onto Lemon and Orange groves, which in the summer months are a wonderful site.
The interior is rustic in style but has the added modern bonus of Wi-Fi and UK Television.
Peace Cottage consists of the following rooms:
Lounge/dining room: Comfy sofa and armchair, dining table for 5/6 people.
Kitchen: Fridge/Freezer, gas cooker, toaster, kettle and plenty of utensils, Welsh dresser. There is also a washing machine.
Bathroom: Toilet, sink, bidet and shower enclosure.

Next door is the smaller cottage, known as the Casita, that sleeps 2 guests and the Farmhouse that sleeps 7. The Pool and lower Terraces are shared between each property.
Avra, Wes & Sophie who live above, with their 2 dogs and 2 cats have a wealth of local experience and are as helpful or discreet as you desire.
The icing on the cake is the lovely pool and terrace area which is reachable via a gated entrance and steps downwards.
So relax in history, gaze upon orchards, walk in rivers, bask in sun and cool off in the fantastic swimming pool.
