We are exceptionally lucky to have such a wealth of activities available to us here in Periana, Axarquía. Our proximity to the Sierra Tejada and Sierra Nevada national parks, means we have access to some of Spain’s most dramatic mountains as well as exciting wildlife, flora and fauna.

This is the place to come if you're into rock climbing, mountaineering, skiing or, tracking down rare plants or spotting eagles and other indigenous birds you might not find at home. We have all the amenities to service activity groups and energetic families, with storage for muddy boots and bikes, as well as a washing machine.

Hiking / Walking

Whether you are a seasoned rambler, serious hiker or simply wish to meander from tapas bar to tapas bar: we can advise you on a variety of routes including gentle paths around Viñuela lake to more advanced treks up into to El Torcal national park, famed for its unusual rock formations or more locally Alcaucin National Park. With a wide range of walking options from long and gentle coastline strolls to the exploration of the mountains and countryside, Casa La Negra will delight walkers of every ilk.

Cycling and Mountain Biking

Once again the varied landscape of Andulusia offers routes for everyone from the serious mountain bikers to those after a more leisurely ride to take in the scenery. We can assist with local bike hire or alternatively you can of course bring you own bike from home. 

Kayaking and water sports

Water sports, especially kayaking, are very popular with our guests at Casa La Negra. Periana sits above the wonderfully blue Lake Viñuela where a variety of water sports can be arranged. We also have a wonderful coastline with most beaches offering something to keep the adventurous entertained: with boat hire, windsurfing, kayaking into the caves, jet-ski hire and pedalos for the more sedate!

There are three, 18 hole, golf courses within easy reach: Baviera Golf club is close to Torre Del Mar, at La Cala de Velez (30 mins by car). Club Antequera is a little further at 45 mins. Finally the Anoreta Golf Club offer 18 holes and spectacular sea views. Sedgeway & Hop-on-Hop-off Tour We have dedicated a full page to all that Malaga has to offer, however we thought we would flag up the city’s popular Sedgeway tour along the sea front. Equally as well-received is the sight-seeing tour which allows you to take in all the key buildings and areas of Malaga from the comfort of an open topped bus.


We have a number of fully trained Yoga teachers who we can send to the villa to teach all levels of yoga. Whether you want a single lesson or a daily routine we will be able to find a Yogi to meet your needs.


We have many rare indigenous birds to take in. We can recommend the organized trip to the Guadalhorce Reserve near Malaga.
