For travellers looking for a tranquil retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the Costa del Sol, Ojen is the perfect getaway. This traditional white village rests in the Sierra de las Nieves Nature Park, 200 metres above sea level. Visitors can spend the days here leisurely strolling through the narrow streets, climbing the hillsides to take in breathtaking views of Marbella and the Mediterranean coastline below, and exploring the forests that blanket the mountainsides. This is the ideal spot for those looking for a holiday in a serene and unspoiled traditional Spanish town.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Ojen
Most travellers holiday to Ojen to soak up the small town atmosphere here. It is hard to feel rushed when you are surrounded by lovely old houses sporting balconies filled with vibrant flowers and flanking steep narrow lanes. The old part of town is particularly attractive for its simple village church and sun bathed church square, rustic cobblestone streets, and profusion of lemon trees that scent the air.
The surrounding Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park is a playground for hikers, outdoor enthusiasts, and wildlife spotters. The thickly forested slopes of the mountains hide bubbling streams, intriguing caves systems, and unique flora and fauna, including the hard to spot Spanish ibex. If you get lucky you may also see majestic eagles, mountain goats, wildcats, or deer.
One of the most pleasant ways to spend time in Ojen is relaxing in a cosy cafe and conversing with the locals. This small mountain village offers many cafes that serve excellent Andalusian cuisine, some of which have terraces that boast incredible views out to the mountains and the sea beyond.

The hotel has been functioning as a hunting lodge for more than a century, and serves excellent local fare and an wide selection of Spanish wines.
