De kastanjebossen van de Valle Genil

Een wandeling van 6,8 km (2,5 à 3 uur ) – Wikiloc  44325587 of de korte ESpecial-Life wandeling van 3,7 km (1 á 1.5 uur) Wikiloc 15560036

Wanneer de lange warme zomer voorbij is en de herfst begint, worden de dorpjes in de Valle del Genil weer wakker. De kastanjes moeten worden geoogst! Voor ons minstens zo belangrijk: de kastanje bossen kleuren in alle tinten oker voordat de bladeren vallen. Dit is de tijd om deze buurt te bezoeken en een wandeling te maken. Oeroude bomen, prachtige lanen en mooie vergezichten.

We kiezen als uitgangspunt het dorpje Pujerra, maar even gemakkelijk hadden we één van de andere witte dorpjes in de omgeving kunnen kiezen. Allemaal vormen ze deel van het “Bosque de Cobre”, letterlijk vertaald: het koperbos.

The Sierra de las Nieves has become a National Park

Ojén’s backyard

Since July 2021 Andalusia has a third National Park: the Sierra de las Nieves. During my time as the owner of Hotel La Posada del Angel in Ojén, there were always guests who wanted to take a walk in that area. We know all the trails and beautiful views on the Ojén side of the park ourselves. But what makes this area so special that it now enjoys the highest protection?

Finca Flores: Our new holiday home

Almost finished…..

Just the last clean-up and painting work and the newest house of Casas Ojén is ready for use. This is the kind of house that was still missing from our range: suitable for two people with a small private pool.

The house is now being used as a trial, so that we can convert the daily feedback directly into actions. It can be booked from July 1.

Finca Flores

Perhaps with the best view in the village. We can promise you that. From the terrace of Finca Flores you can look at the surrounding mountains and in the distance to Marbella and the sea.

The next step…..

Living in Andalusia for almost 10 years and enjoying Spanish life to the full, it is time for the next step. Setting up our charming Posada del Angel in Ojén, near Marbella, was a fantastic challenge. After many renovations and extensions with three village houses, Alex and Esther took over the hotel from us in 2019.

Slowing down and sitting still is actually not an option at all. We still think it is way too much fun to stop doing business and receiving guests; to provide them with tips and tell them about the amazing environment. That is how “Casas Ojén” was born.

In collaboration with La Posada del Angel, we rent out holiday homes in and around Ojén. Always adapted to the conditions set by international tourists: a garden or terrace, excellent WiFi, international TV, and air conditioning.

Hiking around Ojén

Ojén is one of the White Villages of the Sierra de las Nieves where you can discover the wilderness. With wonderful walks, this is an ideal destination for those who want to combine the beach and the sun with beautiful trips through the hinterland. Since the mountains rise directly from the Costa del Sol, they offer an impressive sight from the summit. In all of the rugged and hilly terrain, there is only a small part cultivated in which nature can be admired with all of its unspoilt beauty.
