The area around Cortijo Las Viñas villa rental is lush, fertile flat land that is used to grow vines, olive and
In fact, around 80% of the Malaga denomination wine is grown in the fields surrounding our farmhouse and
the nearby small village of Mollina is most famous for the local wine and olive oil producing co-operative and its
annual Harvest festival.
When we first bought the villa, the accompanying land of almost one acre (just over 4,000 square metres) was
unfenced and completely integrated into the surrounding vineyards.
Before we could even start on restoring the house or landscaping the gardens, we had to literally clear the land
and fence it in, which was quite a task!
We have kept an echo of the agricultural past of Cortijo Las Viñas (literally The Vines Farm) in the form
of a garden pergola which is overgrown by two rows of the original vines.
The gardens are now completely private, surrounded by a perimeter hedge of over 700 Pine trees, with a 70 metre
long line of Oleanders hiding the property from the roadside and producing a riot of red and white flowers from
Spring through to Autumn.
Here is a photo gallery of the main fruits growing throughout the garden and when they are in season.
