New and old – combined with modern design



At the centre of Casa Luca is the bright and spacious living and dining area with open kitchen. From here there is access to the two bedrooms, the bathroom and 2 terraces. The friendly atmosphere of the house is enhanced by the high roof with wooden beams and the Andalusian decor with modern style elements. Functionality and clear design are the key features.

The two bedrooms offer original atmosphere and cosiness – underlined by the old, rough-plastered stone walls, which have been restored in loving detail: Andalusian style paired with minimalism and refined elements. The larger bedroom can be adapted depending on needs. The small bedroom is ideal for one person, but can also accommodate two and is particularly cosy. A modern sofa-bed in the living area provides additional sleeping space for 1 or 2 people. The kitchen is integrated into the living area, offering a fantastic view into the countryside; it is bright, spacious and well-equipped. The decor is functional and practical.

The two terraces – oriented to the south and west – invite you to relax, to watch the stars late at night or to sunbathe during the day. Breakfast in the sunshine or dinner under the stars will be unforgettable.

The outdoor area offers many lovely details. The garden has recently been established and will continue to be added to, with attention to detail and in accordance with the Andalusian style. There are many private and secluded areas where nude sunbathing is possible.



LOCATION

Casa LuCa is approximately 1.5 km above the village of Benamargosa, in southern Spain, in the Axarquia, about 12 km from Velez -Malaga inland of the Costa del Sol, an hour’s drive north-east of Malaga. The village Benamargosa is located on the banks of the river which has influenced the landscape of the area. With its extensive avocado, mango and lemon plantations the evergreen valley looks like an oasis in the hot summer months. On arrival, the visitor gets the direct impression of having reached a huge and well- kept terraced garden. The plantation terraces climb the surrounding hillsides up to an altitude of about 500 m.

On your arrival in Benamargosa we will meet you in the village and accompany you to the house. Casa LuCa is reached in 5 minutes by car via a mainly concreted but partly steep track or in about 10 minutes via a longer driveway. On the short drive the visitor already gets a first impression of the stunning beauty of the valley and the surrounding hills lined with mango and avocado plantations, olive groves and the scattered country houses.

You can also reach Casa-LuCa on foot in about 20 minutes time.

There is ample parking directly above the house. A sandy path leads to the front door.



REGION

Benamargosa in der Axarquia

The village of Benamargosa is the centre of this rural area and nestles on the bank of the river which winds like a snake towards the coast. Sometimes a raging stream in the winter, it is the lifeline of the village; its slopes are planted and ploughed and it is the only provider of water, filling all the wells.



The village centre is about 90 m above sea level, the mountains to the right and left of the valley rise to a height of 550 m. The warm Mediterranean climate means that more than one crop a year can be grown. Vines were traditionally cultivated on the mountain slopes around the village, mainly the Malaga grape, which is used to produce the famous raisins. The traditional farming of grapes, carob, olives and almonds is gradually being replaced by the cultivation of mangos and avocados. Agriculture is the main source of income. Although this is becoming increasingly more mechanised, there are still farmers who leave early in the morning with their mule to go up to the steep fields to work with the hoe on the stony ground.

Most of the approximately 1700 inhabitants live in the village and only a few in farms and country houses scattered about the countryside. Benamargosa village is the centre; in the morning after sunrise the farmers and workers swarm in all directions to their fincas on foot, by motorbike, mule or pickup. In the evening everybody meets back in the village on the main street, in the many bars, in front of the kiosk or at the supermarket where the day’s events will be discussed and commented upon.



HISTORY

The stepped and staggered houses and narrow streets winding up the hill are typical of the traditional architecture of the Moorish era. The first historical evidence comes from the 15th century. The historic jewel of the village, the Church of the Encarnacion, was founded in the 16th century. In the 19th century Benamargosa was famous for its grapes and had 4000 inhabitants. After a disease destroyed almost all the vines, the population fell within a few years to 700 people. During the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) Benamargosa was a small centre for tobacco smuggling and therefore sometimes called “The Little Gibraltar”.
