My place is inside Nature Park Sierra de Grazalema, it offers great hiking, walking and climbing, restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the lovely sunshine, pure air and pure water, piece and nature. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
Book a flight to Malaga, Seville or Jerez de la Frontera, hire a car and start exploring this vast and beautiful area.
At only a couple of meters from our land passes a stream: Arroyomolino. At the opposite side of our land passes another stream that carries water to a mill (molino) down stream. This water, combined with the wonderful climate leads to a large variety of flora and fauna.
The house is small but therefore quite cosy. The English would call it a cottage. The biggest space is a combined sitting room combined with a small kitchen. Next to it is the master bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom with shower.
The other bedroom has its own bathroom with shower, has its own access from outside. It is called the 'chozo' and is build from natural stones. It only has one very small window and we can't change that as anything within the park has to stay as is. The lay out with separate bedrooms is ideal for a family or for two couples, you won't hear each other.
When you have small children however, you would want them a bit closer or at hearing distance. There is a folding cot that you could place in the living room. The sofa is a sofa bed, which would also be a solution.
Are you coming alone, or is it the two of you, we will leave the 'chozo' closed, so it stays clean for the next guests.
You will have the whole place for your selves, there will be no other people. (if you come alone or with 2, we keep to the chozo closed).
You will feel very private and secure: very few people visit the area. You might be spotted by a few wild mountain goats during twilight from far away, but that's all.
Its ideal to read books or write a book. At night I recommend to lie down outside and do some star gazing. Its a real good place to un stress quickly and overthink your life and the next step you are going to take.
Interaction with guests
We normally set up a temporary Whats App group before and during your stay, in which - apart from you - the owners, our Maintenance man Manolo and our multipurpose woman Cati will be present to resolve anything that could occur.
Other things to note
If you have (very) small children, please take care they do not fall in the pool.
1 Respect that you are in a Nature Park. You are only a guest in an area where flora and fauna are number 1.
On their behalf: kindly keep the noise down.
2 Be extremely careful not to cause a fire, especially during the summer months. It is STRICLTY prohibited to use the outdoor barbecue from the 1st of June until the 15th of September. In this period you can use the in-house fireplace
3. You can't use any firewood from our land. Please ask the person that shows you round the house upon arrival if you want to buy firewood.
4. You can't use any of the fruit nor vegetables that grow on the property..... alright then, but no more than a few please.
5. It is STRICTLY prohibited to let you dogs in the swimming pool, it is not hygenic, makes the water dirty and clogs up the filter systems.
6. Please clean up your dog poles
7. Don't leave any garbage outside the house overnight, it attracks animals. Please drop your carbage in the public containers along the road to the house
Having travelled a lot (about 45 countries), I fell in love with my beautiful wife and at the same time with this amazing part of Spain, its nature, its friendly people, its climate, history and traditions.
The Sierra de Grazalema, to me is something close to paradise.
