The Village of Ojén
Ojén, Spain is very dramatically situated in the mountains of the Sierra de las Nieves Nature Park. It is 8 kms due north from Marbella which has the best climate in the Mediterranean. It is a 45 minute drive from Malaga airport along a brand new toll road.
It is hard to believe that the coast and the tourists are so near because this is still a traditional Spanish village with a marvellously relaxed way of life. From the tranquillity of our garden, you are a two minute walk from the village square, which is filled with tapas bars and shops and the hustle and bustle of a prosperous large village. There is an excellent market on Saturdays. For eating, you can choose from spit-roasted chickens to take away, or pizzas through a variety of excellent restaurants, none of which are more than a few minutes’ walk away.
For some ‘bling’ factor, there is Marbella just down the road, which is a shopper’s paradise and along the coast is the famous Puerto Banus where you can view boats and gin-palaces that will make your eyes water.
