The
Experience

Recline among the broom and mimosa in your hammock on one of the wilder surfing coastlines of Spain. Casas Karen feels like a cluster of a village with an unhurried feel, in an eco-friendly garden between pinewoods, sand dunes and beach (a ten-minute walk for most). While the overall feel is rustic, all the houses have their own privacy and are cosy and comfortable, with bright flowing fabrics and stylish local touches. Local here means Andalucían and Moroccan: the mountains of the Magreb are visible on clear days. Many have open fires for winter and the airy and environmentally sustainable ‘chozas’ – houses made of thatch – are sweet and romantic. The place attracts an interesting clientele (artists, lawyers, surfers) and the open laid-back atmosphere is ideal for the more adventurous traveller. Massage, yoga, therapies and life coaching can be arranged and there’s walking, riding, biking and much more, too; Karen and Juani will happily advise. Come for the vibe and don’t be put off by Caños itself, a one-time celebrated hang-out for hippies, now decidedly shabby around the edges.

Local points of interest from Karen Abrahams

  • One of the least spoiled and most spectacular coastlines in Spain. a rather pretty seaside village arranged along the cliff tops with one of the most unspoiled beaches in Andalucía just a 5-10 minute walk away.
  • The Trafalgar lighthouse separates the main bay of Caños from the more open water of the Atlantic on the other side (a sublime place to watch the sunset).
  • The area itself is famous for its surfing, swimming and deep-sea-diving, and breathtaking countryside is perfect for walks, bicycle-tours and horse-riding through the hills and meadows of the Natural Park of the Breña y Marismas del Barbate.
  • A variety of restaurants and bars nearby, and a short drive away in breathtaking white hilltop villages like Vejer de frontera, and in special secret places, next to waterfalls and natural springs.
  • 5 minutes walk from Casas Karen, Local Organic Farmer´s market, fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, fresh pasta, cheese, homemade cakes, and more… Sessions of the Work of Byron Katie available.
  • You can practice Yoga, Qi-Gong and Krav Maga with our in-house teachers. We're open to exchanges, please get in touch if you're interested. We also have special rates for longer Winter stays, come and stay for a few months out of season!
