This refurbished stone cottage, one of six in a rural area of Andalusia, sleeps 2 adults and 3 children plus a baby and is in a wonderful spot for sun worshippers and active 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, with wooden beams, a sunny terrace with views and plenty of painted tiles. With a spacious living area and wonderful views of the nearby hills, it’s a great spot for a family. Visit the pretty town of Alájar for food, attend local fiestas and festivals or explore the countryside nearby for a relaxing break.
