Properties for rent and sale in Canillas de Aceituno

The village is situated in the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda and this position gives it one of the very best views in the whole of the Axarquía, all the way from Boquete de Zafarraya, at the boundary with the province of Granada, to the coast. 

The municipal district of Canillas de Aceituno is surrounded by mountain peaks - Maroma (2,068 metres - the highest one in the whole of the province of Malaga, Fuerte (1,490 metres) and Rompealbaldas (770 metres). The village is 51 kilometres from Malaga, 18 kilometres from Velez-Malaga and just 7.8 from the next-door village of Sedella.

It has a population of some 2,800. There are magnificent views of the Vélez and Rubite valleys from the road linking the two villages, with olive, almond and fig trees and vines growing beside it, all defying gravity and forming a unique landscape.

The special plots for drying grapes are also found here. The easiest way to get to Canillas de Aceituno is via Vélez-Málaga, taking first the C-335 country road and then the MA-125 local one. From the start of the latter the way climbs up to 645 metres above sea level, the height of the village itself. 

A twenty minute drive takes you to or from the new coastal motorway which passes a little to the south of Velez-Malaga. The bustling seaside town of Torre del Mar can be reached in less than half an hour and the airport is an hour´s drive away. 

The municipality is quite wooded, the trees being watered by a large number of local rivers, such as the Amánchares, the Bermuza and the Rubite, with natural springs, such as the Gazuela and the Yedra. The area around Canillas village is replete with natural caves, the main one being the Fájara, four kilometres away, with tunnels as long as half a kilometre in length. Keep going along the MA-125 and you will soon realise that it divides the village into two parts, the road itself being the only part of the village that is flat. Once in the village, look for Calle del Convento and Calle Sierrecilla. You will get a panoramic view of the area from here and be able to pick out the Moorish legacy clearly in the layout of the streets. The Town Hall is situated in the Plaza de la Constitución, the only open space in the village.
