Here are plenty of possibilities for mountain biking. There is a certified route 100 meters from our house. (Fuente-Tojar, ruta de los Barrancos, 13,42 kilometers – moderate), and Via Verde (see Fuente-Tojar and surroundings) is also nearby. There is the possibility to rent a mountain bike.

Rent mountain bikes

€ 18         1 day
€ 30         2 days
€ 120        1 week (no transport costs)

Transport costs € 25, but if the group consists of 6 people or more, the transport is free. The mountain bikes come from Dona Mencia 25 km from us.


There are plenty of opportunities for walking, both close by and further away. For example, you can walk the Caminito del Rey. A beautiful trip on a path that hangs on the side of the mountain. You can reserve tickets via https://caminitodelreymalaga.com/en/tickets/ (1,5 hours by car, 140 km). At Antiquera you also have a beautiful walk through the limestone rocks, called “El Torcal”. This is free and just the way up by car is beautiful (1,5 hours by car, 100 km). But also around here it is very nice to walk as we are in living in the campo (outside area) you are immediately in nature as soon as you leave the cortijo. Some examples ( Fuente-Tojar – Cerro de la Cabeza – El Solvito – Fuente-Tojar 12,43 kilometer – moderate or Fuente-Tojar Ruta de los Barrancos 10,88 kilometer – moderate)

A trip to the Cerro de las Cabezas, the museum and the village with picnic (about 4 to 5 hours):

We first bring everyone to the village. In the village we will look at the murals. These all have something to do with Fuente-Tojar. Then we walk to the museum. In the museum we see the objects found in the area. From the village we walk to an old archaeological area (about 30 to 45 minutes walk). Here was a settlement of an Iberian-Roman city. In addition to the settlement, you also have a very nice view of the surroundings. From here we walk back to cortijo La Cubertilla (about 30 to 45 minutes walk). Of course a drink will not be forgotten and we will go for a picnic (lunch) somewhere nice.
