Property for sale in Alcaucin
Alcaucín is one of the 31 municipalities that make up the Axarquía region. VillaSolutions has many Villas for sale in Alcaucin. The region, comarca in Spanish, is a territorial division of Spain, delimited by geographical affinities, and roughly equivalent to a U.K. district, county or area. La Axarquía is one of the nine regions of the province of Málaga. Below you can see a map contour of the Axarquía region, with Lake Viñuela clearly visible in its centre:
So, zooming into the map of Spain, concentrate on the south of it, which is the autonomous community of Andalusia, then, down to the next level, the province of Málaga, zooming in further we get to the Axarquía region and, within it, we find the municipality of Alcaucín. There is still some zooming in to do, since Alcaucín is also made up of smaller territorial units, like areas and villages. The VillaSolutions real estate agency is located in one of these villages and its activity, helping you find your property in inland Spain, expands from its office, in Puente Don Manuel, throughout the region of La Axarquía and even beyond it, into the neighbouring province of Granada.

If you are one of those people who think inland equals boring, let us try and change your mind about that. It certainly is rather quiet where we live and work, but it is also beautiful, with mountains and a lake at our doorstep, as well as the coast and the Sierra Nevada ski resort within quick and easy reach. However, the two dominant natural features of the area are the natural park with its mountains and the lake.

Alcaucín is located within the Natural Park of Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama, so its territory is quite rugged, with numerous ridges and deep valleys. Sierra Tejeda is the highest part of this mountainous complex, reaching 2,066 meters at the peak of La Maroma, pictured below:
From this iconic peak you get spectacular views of the Mediterranean coast and the neighbouring mountains, including the highest peak of the Iberian Peninsula, Mulhacen (3,479m). The Natural Park constitutes a natural border between the provinces of Málaga and Granada and a favourite destination among hikers and mountaineers.
Another important element within the Natural Park is the mountain pass Boquete de Zafarraya, a natural passage between the two neighbouring provinces of Málaga and Granada, where the cave Cueva del Boquete de Zafarraya is located, at an altitude of about 1,100 meters and, administratively, within the municipality of Alcaucín. This cave has great palaeontological importance, being the site that has provided the greatest number of Neanderthal remains on the Iberian Peninsula. You can see the cave entry pictured below:
The other defining element of our area, Lake Viñuela, is a man-made reservoir which provides drinking water for the entire region of Axarquía and it represents a picturesque aspect of the local landscape.
