Description - Bed and breakfast

Escuela means school, and that is exactly what this
beautiful building was built for - to educate the local children of the hamlet of La Crujía.

Built in the 1940s, amongst the lemon, mandarine and avocado groves of a lush, tropical valley, the school was active until just a few years ago, doubling as a local place of worship on Sundays. Today the building, with its beamed school hall and its picturesque bell tower, has been fully restored and extended to provide comfortable accommodation for holiday makers looking to escape from the tourists and explore the area freely, on foot, by bike or by car, or playing golf at one of the nearby golf courses.

There are three comformable rooms available, all with independent access and private terraces. There are two double rooms (with double beds) with en-suite bathrooms and fully equipped kitchens. The third is a twin room with en-suite bathroom. All three rooms have air conditioning, TV, fridge, microwave and a woodburning stove for a cosy atmosphere in the Winter! All three rooms are offered at the same nightly rate, although we can usually offer a discount for hiring more than one room or for bookings of one week or longer.

The garden is perfect for relaxing in the sun or taking a cooling dip in the pool, accompanied only by the cheerful cheeping of the many birds. Guests are free to make use of the BBQ, play table tennis, beat the boxing bag, and there is a great trampoline for the kids to work off all that extra energy! But you may simply wish to sit, relax, sunbathe, read a book from our library, or, especially nice, contemplate the beauty of the sky as the sun sets and night time descends on the valley. And at night the Escuela and its gardens become a magical world, with the twinkling lights of the garden mixing with the distant lights of the ancient Moorish town of Vélez-Málaga visible beyond and if you take a midnight dip... aghh!

The Escuela is located 3 Kms from the historic town of Velez-Malaga and around 5 Kms from the coastal resort of Torre del Mar, at around 30 mins drive East of Malaga city. It is a relatively undiscovered part of the Costa del Sol, offering some of the real Spain, away from the mass tourism of the Western Costa del Sol. There is plenty to see and do here, from the Nerja caves, to the hot springs of Alhama, the water park in Velez, secluded beaches, or country and mountain walks, plenty of white-washed villages to explore and beautiful Lake Viñuela just a 10 min drive from the house. We can recommend many more places to see and things to do - just ask when you are with us!

How to get there

From Malaga airport, take the N340 towards Motril/Almería (Autovia del Mediterraneo, East). Leave the motorway at the Vélez-Málaga exit and take the main road due North, passing parallel to Vélez to your right. DO NOT TAKE SIGNS INTO VELEZ, STAY ON THE MAIN ROAD NORTH, which is signposted Viñuela/Alhama. After around two Kms, still on the main road, take the road towards Benamargosa, to the left, by the Restaurante El Cruce. About half a Km along, by the speed limit sign marked 60, turn right, up a track. Around 200 metres along, look for the sign to the Escuela - we are just on the left. Turn into the car park, under the arched gateway and park.

There is a local bus service to the local town. We can also arrange pick-up from airport and local car hire.
