Barranco Blanco, a well hidden valley, will enchant you – once you find it.
Located in the foothills of the Sierra Alpujata between Coin and Alhaurin el Grande, 30 min drive from Malaga and 20 min from Marbella, it cannot be seen from the surrounding roads. But the search is more than worth it, for this serene spot (which means White Ravine in Spanish) is set in stunning woodland teeming with wildlife – including wild boars – and its river ends in a magical waterfall.
These days it’s a photographer’s paradise and a hot spot for horse riding, mountain biking, walking and river swimming.
There you will find truly unique and individual, nestled in its own 20 hectares of land, mountains and gardens, Finca La Fuente.
