The village of Sedella is home to around 500 people (mostly Spanish with a few English, German and Dutch settlers) is part of the Axarquia region in the province of Malaga in Andalucia, Southern Spain. The village is a collection of whitewashed houses appearing to cling to the rocks in the Natural Park of the Sierra Tejeda. La Maroma, the tallest mountain is approximately 2,080 meters above sea level and towers over the area serving as a magnificent backdrop to the verdant valleys. The hills and mountains host many accessible walks with the most spectacular views out to the Mediterranean and the mountains in Morocco. There is abundant wildlife to be enjoyed; wild boar and ibex roam the land and eagles, vultures, hoopoos and the colourful bee eaters, to name but a few, fill the sky.
Sedella is steeped in a mixed history with Roman bridges, Arab architecture and Spanish traditions. The locals farm the terraced hillsides of olive and almond trees in much the same way as it has been done for centuries. You often see a farmer travelling to work on his mule with its homemade wooden saddle and colourful saddlebags or you may see a mule pulling an ancient plough making sandy red furrows in the steep hillside fields. Goatherds still walk the hillsides, taking their flocks to graze daily with the sound of goat bells echoing through the valleys.
The climate is mild in the winter and warm to hot in the summer. However, the cooling mountain breezes avoid the summer heat being too stifling.
Canillas de Acietuno (15mins drive to the west) and Canillas de Albaida (15mins drive to the east) are also well worth a visit as they too, are filled with examples of the diverse history of the region and together with Sedella sport open air public swimming pools, restaurants, bars, shops and a weekly market
Competa, its name meaning “cross roads” or “meeting place”, only 30 minutes away, serves the same function today as it a place where locals and tourists alike congregate. Its bars, restaurants and shops are visited by people from all over the world giving it a cosmopolitan feel without losing its distinctly Spanish hospitality.
Torre del Mar, on the coast only 30 minutes drive from Sedella is the perfect marriage of busy working town and sleepy beach resort without one spoiling the charm of the other. You will find all the things you would expect of a seaside towns and much more. Miles of clean beaches, a promenade, bars, restaurants, hotels, shops and banks but also a hypermarket, water park and cinema.
Fiestas abound in Spain and this region is no different, with Christmas and Easter time being particularly colourful with processions and feasting and the local people are more than happy to welcome visitors to join in the fun.
We at Los Alfareros can arrange walking, horse riding and motorbike tours together with guided trips to Granada and the Alhambra palace on request.
