Interaction with guests
We live on the property: our house is above the apartment. We will meet you on your arrival to check you in and explain how everything works. We are also available to provide help, recommendations about the local area and insights into special places you can visit. However, we´re also conscious that some people wish to escape while on holiday, so the level of interaction with us will vary, as this will be determined by our guests.

We are rather spoilt living in an idyllic location in a 40 acre forest clearing so holiday venues need to be exceptional for us to choose them. Our hosts had carefully considered the perfect location for their luxury holiday accommodation and had put their extremely...More

About the neighbourhood
Algodonales, our local village which is 5 km away, is known as the ´Puerta de la Sierra´, or ´gateway to the mountains´. The village nestles under the rocky crags of the Sierra de Lijar mountain; there are several other pretty white hillside towns within 25 km to explore. The Via Verde de la Sierra can be accessed 15 km from the property, as can the local dam, the Presa de la Zahara. Further afield, Ronda is 35 km from Algodonales, and Jerez, Cadiz, Seville, Malaga and a range of picturesque Mediterranean beaches are all accessible for day trips. Algodonales is located on the edge of the Sierra de Grazalema natural park, so the area is a nature lover´s paradise, with plenty of opportunity for walking, climbing, paragliding and cycling.
Getting around
Because the property is in a rural location, guests ideally need a car to be able to fully explore the area. We are a 5 minute drive from Algodonales, or a 45-60 minute walk (it´s 4.5 km to the town centre, on quiet country roads and tracks), where there is public transport available (buses and taxis). Bicycles can be hired in town, or at any of the main access points to the Via Verde.
