El Jardin al Andalus is a new concept in eco-tourism – a boutique rural property which provides a bespoke Andalusian experience. Positioned on a spectacular hilltop with panoramic views of stunning countryside, dotted with olive and almond trees, it is built adjacent to protected land, a stone’s throw from the beautiful Montes de Malaga with its unique wildlife, flora and fauna
The building is designed to be self-sufficient and contribute to sustainability of our fragile planet. It avoids carbon-heavy air conditioning and uses naturally ventilating breezes throughout.
