Welcome to our bright and breezy apartment perched at the highest point of Zahara de la Sierra's hilltop location with magnificent views. Open plan, simply, nicely furnished. The village square with plenty of bars and restaurants, is a five minute walk down the hill - and a ten minute walk back up in the heat of summer!

The space

The Lacuna has a lovely setting in Zahara de la Sierra, perhaps the most attractive of Andalusia's typical white villages. The town tumbles down the hill in front of the apartment and at the back are fields of olives.
- For summer there's a beautiful outdoor, community pool with a nice restaurant and the 'playita' - a fresh water swimming lake - is ten minutes drive away.
- Spring and autumn bring beautiful walking and hiking conditions. There are wonderful routes to choose throughout the Grazalema Natural Park. (Try The Walk of the Bandeleros or The Walk of the Goatherd's Leap, for example!)
- The weather is chilly in winter, but often with clear, sunny days. The apartment has heating and a cosy wood burner.

Guest access

Two double bedrooms, both with double beds. The space is comfortable for 1, 2, 3 or 4 people. Free parking, speedy wifi.

The apartment is very nice and cosy and has wonderful views to the castle, lake and over the village. It is easy to get to and the host's communications were excellent and clear throughout. She was very accommodating for our last minute changes in timetable which we appreciated a lot. I would happily stay there again.

Wow, what a place. Nicki's house is incredible. We were here in October and the breeze in the apartment was amazing, opened all the windows, and woke up early to watch the sunrise over the mountains and lake in the distance. The view alone is reason to come back here anytime. Nicki herself was extremely quick to respond, we booked very last minute and Nicki was got back to us immediately with every question. We met at the meeting point very easily, in front of the little park across from the hotel at the bottom of town. The walk up the apartment is a 10 minute uphill walk, but really lovely and not too hard, the entire town is built on a hill, so you have to expect to walk one way or another. Can't wait to go back to Zahara!

Location couldn't have been more perfect. High up on the hill, we woke to the most beautiful sunrises over the lake. It was the most relaxed we were on our entire trip. The apartment is roomy with modern conveniences. Loved, loved having a washing machine!! You need to be in decent shape to manage the town's hills but that's Europe! I climbed up the hill to the Moorish castle and took photos from the top. I can't wait to return. One last note: figure out directions before you go. GPS told us wrong multiple times and we ended up in stuck in a neighboring town behind a parade.

Nicki's apartment was absolutely lovely! It has beautiful views and the flat was very clean and has everything you could need. Zahara is a really cute town with restaurants and shops only a 5 min walk away. Nicki was a great host and check in with Caty was easy. Would highly recommend. Hopefully we'll be back soon - we loved it!

This cosy apartment is located at the upper part of Zahara. It has two spacious bedrooms enough to host 4 people. The apartment has everything you might need for short or longer stay and the view from the balcony is absolutely fantastic. You can see the lake, the hill with a castle and mountains in distance. And you never have enough of this view :) Zahara is a charming small village, very quiet in the evenings, with few restaurants and shops. There are only some tourists visiting it and the castle during the day. It is also a good place to explore surrounding mountains of Grazalema Park. Our stay was very relaxing. We recommend the place to everyone.

We LOVED this place! I wish we stayed a month, not just one night. Zahara is worth visiting and I can't imagine a better place to stay than Nicki's apartment. Beautiful, clean, gorgeous views, close to the castle as well as restaurants - just perfect.
