Villanueva del Trabuco

The attractive village of Villanueva del Trabuco is situated in the south-western extreme of the Antequera region, at the foot of the Gorda and San Jorge sierras, in the province of Malaga.

The typical Andaluz white village is sits 700 metres above sea level in a stunning natural setting. Many foreign residents have chosen to settle in the area, opting for a more Spanish way of life, away from the coast.

History
Although the village itself is not very old, dating back to 1620, Roman remains have been found in the local area, which suggest that the area was inhabited long before this date. 

Around town
The charming village is typically Andalusian; the old quarter of Bario de los Villares is especially
attractive, with its narrow streets and blooming window boxes set against the whitewashed walls of the village houses.

The main square at the heart of the village is Plaza de Prado, where most shops and amenities can be found. Most locals gather here to chat, play dominos, or sit ‘al fresco’ during the hot summer evenings.

In this square you find the town hall building with the famous fountain, Fuente de los tres Caños. Legend says that the water never dries up and is an excellent source of fresh water in the region.

Natural surroundings
Both the River Guadalhorce and River Higueral run through the village, and there are some delightful walks along their banks.

The local landscape is very contrasting, the village nestles at the foot of the Gorda and San Jorge Mountains, and there is an easy walk that takes you up the Sierra de San Jorge. In contrast the foothills are agricultural land, with olive groves and wheat fields that wave gently in the Andalusian sunshine.

This is an excellent location for those looking for a rural location, but with good amenities and who enjoy rambling and outdoor pursuits.

Places to visit
The Roman town of Antequera and the whole Antequera region is both beautiful and historically interesting. Moorish villages, mixed with Roman settlements and beautiful landscapes make for a wonderful region to explore.

Cuisine
The region of Antequera is renowned for its cuisine and has its own unique flavour; in particular the delicious Gazpacho and Porra dishes both hail from Antequera and Bienmesabe is a must for dessert lovers.

Eating out
The town has a good selection of bars and restaurants; mainly Spanish, but some international options have sprouted up with the coming of the foreign residents.

Climate
Villanueva del Trabuco enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and
warm winters. Divided from the sea by the mountains means the heat can soar in summer, but it remains comfortable for the most part. Temperatures are an average of 32ºC in summer.

Villanueva del Trabuco review

Lovely small town, lots of little shops. Not very developped for tourism (even rural tourism offer) but close to other sites.

Villanueva del Trabuco review

It's a 10 minute walk outside a nice village that has everything you need. It's not terribly busy, and there is plenty of privacy. The scenery is beautiful, and its quite easy to hike from the house up into the hills.


Costa del Sol reviews

We didnt visit the coast, so I cant really comment.

Villanueva del Trabuco review

Loved the authentic character of Villanueva del Trabuco while being a location very well situated (close to highway) to reach many destinations without too much trouble (if you remember that Andalucia is in fact a very vast area with many mountains and therefore do not have the expectation to be able to visit everything at once .


Costa del Sol reviews

We intentionally did not choose for a location on the coast and therefore would not be the right people to comment on a rating of the Costa del Sol. Having said that we spent a lovely day at Nerja and probably would opt for a stay in that area instead of the Costa del Sol.

Villanueva del Trabuco review

Quaint little village with all the necessities and some nice bars/restaurants


Costa del Sol reviews

Lovely, I would recommend driving that little bit further to Nerja or Almuñecar beaches. Where you can also enjoy snorkelling

Villanueva del Trabuco review

A lovely little square with a fountain and a handful of bars with a friendly atmosphere with other interesting towns nearby.


Costa del Sol reviews

Far too busy- too much traffic, too much development and too many tourists.
