a truly stunning Location
Although only 1.5 km to the centre of the lovely ‘pueblo blanco’ or white town of Benamocarra, Bambú is situated amongst acres of avocados and mangos. The country road leading to Bambú is lined by a screen of bamboo, from which we take our name. Our nearest neighbour is ½km away, ensuring complete privacy. Bambú is in a great holiday location and is perfect for exploring lesbian Spain.
Despite being in a beautiful secluded location, Bambú is very close to ‘civilisation’ and the coast. So there is plenty to see and do in the area. Benamocarra itself is a lovely and friendly place to explore and to enjoy sampling the food and drink of its many tapas bars … and the 20 minute walk between the village and Bambú, albeit down an unlit country road, is pleasant and safe.
A 15 minute drive away is the Spanish seaside town of Torre del Mar and a little further along the coast is Rincon de la Victoria. Both Torre and Rincon have long wide beaches and wonderful promenades, dotted with countless beachside restaurants, enjoyed seemingly by all the towns’ inhabitants, young and old, late into the evening. Torre del Mar also boasts a water park, excellent craft and food markets and good shopping facilities. The attractive resort of Nerja is a 25 minute drive – it is also home to some beautiful beaches and stunning caves. Also nearby are the award-winning white villages of Frijiliana and Competa and the beautiful Lake Viñuela.
But if city living is more your thing, then Malaga city is just a 30 minute drive away. It is a fabulous and vibrant city, renowned for its art galleries, nightlife and its tapas bars – and is in many respects not dissimilar to Barcelona but famed for Picasso instead of Gaudi and, surprisingly, visited by far fewer tourists. Bambú, the perfect apart-hotel for lesbian Spain.
For those wanting to explore the greatest prize of all, Granada’s World Heritage Site of The Alhambra is just over an hour’s drive from Bambú.
The beautiful cities of Cordoba, Ronda and Antequera are all easy day trips. Seville is a little further afield – but is still accessible by car or by fast train from Malaga.
Each of these cities is exquisitely beautiful and of major importance in the context of European history, art, religion and culture.
This is the real Spain – not the tourist ghetto of the Costa del Sol – enjoy the culture, the landscape, the weather and the language!
And Bambu is the best way to enjoy lesbian Spain!
