In and Around Cantueso Outside in the 18,000 sq/m grounds there are lovely gardens and play areas for all ages with swings, slide, trampoline and a see-saw. There is also a crazy golf course, football field, and most importantly, a swimming pool. The pool is 12m x 6m and is securely fenced with self closing double
locking child-proof gates, and has an extended shallow end of half a meter, with easy access for children. There are plenty of sun beds and parasols. The pool uses a salt water generator and although the salt is hardly noticeable it creates a â€œsoftâ€? water effect similar to pure rain water which
is very nice to bathe in. It also means that a minimum of chemicals have to be added to the pool. And in case this is not enough for energetic children there is also a games room with full size table tennis and darts. All free to use.
Things to do near Cantueso PerianaVillage: All the usual facilities such as shops, supermarkets, chemist, doctors, dentist, bars and restaurants are available 1 Â˝ kilometers away in Periana. All around Cantueso there are many cycle rides and picturesque walks, for which we can provide walking routes, and just 20 minutes away there are larger towns and many beaches. We have a comprehensive beach guide detailing the many beaches in the area. Walking, Birdwatching and Photography in Axarquia: The best time to walk in Axarquia is from spring to early summer and then through Autumn, although there are walks that with care and planning can be tackled in summer and winter. Springtime temperatures, with blossoms and flowers in abundance help to create
walks of breathtaking beauty and interest. We are especially fortunate to have national parks nearby and in recent years there has been much progress made with regard to protection of wild birds and animals not to mention the restrictions on planning and development. The banning of motorcycles and cars into most areas ensures that the tranquillity is maintained. Unlike other European countries Spanish maps do not generally show walking routes or paths and when they do, they can be very unreliable. Most useable tracks are those previously frequented by mules carrying produce between cortijos and one of the joys of the area is to stumble upon an abandoned farm with the temptation to pick your own peaches, oranges, avocados, figs, apricots or nuts.
It is interesting to note that even serious European walkers are only just beginning to appreciate what the south of Spain has to offer. Until recently the region has been largely overlooked and means that in general you will be walking alone and have a wonderful opportunity to visit many unfrequented areas. Not yet do we have that all too familiar problem in other European countries where popularity has literally worn out the pathways and left tracks looking like dusty motorways. Places of Interest: On our website we have over fourteen pages of things to do and lots of details about nearby villages and other tourist attractions. We can only give you a brief overview here.

We realise mum’s on holiday too, and that parents with babies and small children need special facilities. Our cottages are therefore equipped with many baby and toddler items that you would normally bring with you. As travel costs continue to rise this will save money, and our in and out any day policy means you can take advantage of cheaper midweek flights. Specially for babies: As you can see from this list we provide much more than the basics: • Baby bath • Changing mat • Bath time toys • High chair • Microwave • Plastic cups and cutlery • Baby monitor
• Small toys • Buggy • Steriliser • Books and DVD’s • Potty • Cot • Blender • Stair Gates (where needed) • Night lights • Bed Guard
no dangerous chemicals in reach of little hands. Then for meal times plastic cutlery, low tables and chairs. In fact the cottages have been checked out using a rigorous vetting procedure developed by the Child Accident Prevention Trust.
With Safety in Mind: Inside the cottages have stair gates where needed, and electric socket protectors and of course
families come back year after year because their children like it so much, and just love making friends with different nationalities.
Another important improvement measure TV with English channels has been the enclosing of including Cbeebies of terraces in front of the course! cottages. It now means It is most important to tell toddlers have a safe area to play while mum reads a us if you need one of our extra child friendly cottages book or cooks dinner and because they have gates, when you book.
