Situated among the Andalucian hills, Ronda is the largest and one of the most impressive whitewashed town in the region. The entire town is perched at the top of the vast El Tajo gorge and offers incredible views. What’s more, it is only an hour from numerous beautiful beaches.

Ronda has had an interesting past having been inhabited by the Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs. Much of this rich history is still evident in the historic quarter. There are also a series of spectacular bridges that connect the historic quarter with the rest of the town.

Average property prices are around €1,300 per square metre.


Known as “the jewel of the Costa del Sol”, Nerja is a pretty coastal town around 50km from Malaga. Backed by imposing mountains and lined with 10 miles of sandy beaches, the town is a popular choice with overseas buyers.

One thing that makes Nerja really special is the five-kilometre network of caves and caverns. As well as being geographically impressive, these caves also transform into an epic concert venue in the summer.

Average property prices are around €3,100 per square metre.
