Away from mass tourism, Campo Agave offers peace, relaxation and a perfect base for activities and excursions in the area. A 45-minute drive from Malaga and located on a southern spur of an extensive nature reserve, the beach, culture and nature are within easy reach.
The rich history of Moorish and Spanish culture can be found in the towns and white villages in the area.
The hosts of Campo Agave are Jes and Wouter. They live in a separate part of the site, know the area well and will do everything they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
As in other regions in Europe, the South of Spain has recently seen an increased spread of the corone virus, which has resulted in new measures from the authorities which limits mobility of inhabitants and guests. Of course we take the necessary precautions at Campo Agave. Hygienic cleaning procedures (regular cleaning, disinfection, we take care of that), availability of disinfectants for our guests and a general conduct code of ‘social distancing’ at the premises. Face masks may be worn if desired, but are not immediately required. In practice corona doenot lead to much stress at Campo Agave, because we are small-scale with plenty of space on the site. It helps that Campo Agave is outside the busier coastal area and has little run-up from non-guests.
If you would like to know more about the situation in the South of Spain, do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to answer your questions. You can also check the english edition of the regional newspaper at http://www.surinenglish.com/
