One of six stone cottages in a rural area of Andalusia, this residence sleeps 4 and is a wonderful spot for sun worshippers and families alike. Near to fantastic walking territory, it’s not just a rural retreat but caters well for families with a pool, games, bikes and plenty more on site to hire, including donkeys for guided treks.
The residence itself is a classic rustic cottage, the largest of the six available, with wooden beams, a sunny terrace with views and plenty of typical tiles. Visit the pretty town of Alájar for food, attend local fiestas and festivals or explore the countryside nearby for a relaxing family break.

Very tranquil, relaxing environment…definitely off the beaten path. The hosts were so nice and accommodating. We loved the donkey ride with Jose Maria!
