Canillas de Albaida

This lovely village lies in the La Axarquía area on the side of a hill.

It’s a gorgeous, quaint little village where the houses are so white that they hurt your eyes in the sun. It seems like every corner you turn round leads you to yet another steep but utterly picturesque street.

Its main square has two bars which are both great to have a cold drink in at any hour of the day. The whiteness of the houses is broken by the many flower pots that decorate the walls.

The village is popular with hikers as it is perfectly located for the many walks that start in it or in the vicinity and lead to the Sierra Almijara and the Sierra Tejeda National Park. Just as in almost every village and town in the Costa del Sol, there are many, mostly British expats who call this lovely place their home.
