Cartama is a white washed Andalusian village with stunning landscapes, situated in the foothills of the Sierra de Cartama mountain range, just east of Malaga.
Renowned for its agriculture, the lush farmlands in the area produce olives, almonds and citrus fruits. This is the border between the Guadalhorce valley and La Hoya in the Montes de Malaga.
Centrally located, Cartama is equidistant from the inland towns of Coin, Alhaurin el Grande and Alhaurin del la Torre and just 20 kilometers from Malaga city centre.
Offering visitors a truly traditional experience where you can experience the real Andaluicia, whilst still being within 25 minutes’ drive of the coastline and beaches.
Rumoured to have been originally founded by merchant Phoenicians and named Cartha, the town was later utilised as a key defensive position for the Romans who renamed the town Cartima, at the time being one of the main towns in the province of Málaga.
Offering far more economic pricing than the busy coastal destinations, Cartama offers buyers the opportunity to pick up a rural home or finca at exceptional value for money, in a truly traditional part of Andalucia.
