This B&B is well established and with good trade, it sits on a small town of about 100 people but with several tapas bars walking distance and a short drive to the main town but also just 15 min drive to lake Iznajar as well as under hour drive to Malaga, Cordoba and Sevilla, among other famous activities in the area is Antequera and the Dolmenes as well as Torcal so it's easy to understand why guests tend to stay a week on average.
The 575m2 built and 1769m2 plot is built on the edge of town with unobstructed views to nothing but olive fields so guests are immediately showered with a sense of peace after they walk in the front doors of the B&B.
As a retreat and centrally located B&B it works wonders, the owners have also added a fantastic breakfast and dinner which guests especially take advantage off since they tend to eat breakfast, leave the hotel and come back in the afternoon for the pool, relaxing and then dinner with local wines, hence the tremendously good reviews this B&B has (and the owners great personality of course).
The 4 guestrooms can accommodate up to 13 guests at any point in time, they are all very spacious, ensuite and have all the perks expected of a top B&B, on premises there is lots to do with a heated pool (automatic salt-electrolysis disinfection system) with amazing views and bar so guests don't have to go back to their rooms to get refreshments, there is table tennis and bocci ball (petanque), trampoline and plenty of other activities in the easy maintenance garden, even a chicken pen, and planting area so kids have been very welcomed at this B&B.
The owner's area is accessed through the professional kitchen and onto a second-floor private apartment so there is full separation and privacy from guests, the apartment is 2 beds and 1 bathrooms, kitchen, living room and 2 terraces with great views.
The town itself is super small which lends to the charm of the B&B, the neighbors all know and help each other as they all mostly live from the olive trade, the town does have 2 tapas bar so guests do tend to stay the whole day at the B&B an have all three meals available which is great for relaxation days (nothing but good food, wine/drinks, pool and sun).
Besides the tranquility and facilities, why do guest stay at this B&B, what is there to do?
Centrally located in the heart of Andalusia, therefore ideal for day-trips to the major cultural cities in the area such as Granada, Cordoba, Malaga and Seville, but the nearer towns or villages like Archidona and Antequera, Setenil and Iznajar are also worth a visit and have a great cultural and historical richness.
Lake Iznajar with its man-made beaches and watersport activities such as kayaking and paddle boats or just lounging on the lake and enjoying the lakeside restaurant.
El Torcal with its exceptional karstic rock formations and wildlife are definitely worth a visit. It is a must for bird watchers
El Caminito del Rey (The King’s pathway) is a walkway, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Ardales in the province of Málaga. The walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade. After four years of extensive repairs and renovations, the walkway re-opened in 2015. It has been known in the past as the “world’s most dangerous walkway” following five deaths in 1999 and 2000. It is now entirely safe and open to anyone with a reasonable head for heights.
The path hangs 100m above the river Guadalhorce and snakes around the cliffs, affording truly breathtaking views at every turn. The boardwalk is 2.9km long and constructed with wooden slats and a 1.2m-high three-wire guard rail; in some sections, the old crumbling path can be spied just below. There is a lot of information on the website, including reservation details. You should allow around four hours for the walk which includes returning to your access point.
Then obvioysly people use this B&B to do cicling tours or a different Vespa tour (organized from B&B with local partner) but realy dozens of other activities which is why many of the guest repeat it as a destination.
