The
Experience

The welcome tea and home-made cakes, the hotch-potch of patios, the quirky furnishings, the next-door allotment – this is a family home. Originally the flour-miller’s house – on a steep lane off the tiny square of this enchantingly pretty, lively village – grandsons Raul and Florentino have converted it with flair and fun. Traditional stone outside, interiors are bright, cool and uncluttered. The beamed, open-plan living area has a reclaimed wood table, Moroccan rugs and crackling chimenea; immediately relaxing. A well-planned kitchen means you can cook supper if you fancy a change from the homely village eateries. Super-fit Raul – his breakfasts are very healthy or very Spanish; produce from their allotment – can advise on recipes and local produce. White bedrooms, with stunning views of rooftops and mountains, are bright with hand-painted furniture, quirky murals and colourful duvets. Most have balconies, one a terrace. Two big bathrooms are inventive yet slick. Swim, kayak, bird-watch, hike; relax under fruit trees in colourful patios or in the renewable energy-heated roof-top plunge-pool. Charming, thoughtful owners; restful vibes.

Reviews

What a wonderful B & B with everything you could ask for. Raul is lovely and looks after you with delicious homemade breakfasts and provides help and advice to make your stay as interesting and relaxing as possible. The whole family make you feel very welcome. The house is delightful and is spotlessly clean. The location is great and the area has many interesting places to visit. I can highly recommend this as a fabulous base around the white villages. Try a shiastu massage.

Sandy, Lancaster

Absolutely gorgeous little white village and surrounding mountains where a perfect setting for this B&B which has lovingly been done up with many quirky and fun details. The hosts treated us as friends and took time giving us excellent advice about what to do and see in the area. Morning breakfast was a tasty and healthy selection of fresh and dried fruits, bread, honey and cheese from the area. Lazy afternoons on the rooftop with stunning vista and a plunge pool for cooling off. We are going back.

Local points of interest from Raul Delgado

  • Traditional Goyesca bullfighting in the oldest ring in the world. Parade with the bullfighter wearing 18th century clothes. With colour, music and horses it's a leap back into the past! The celebration is the first week of September.
  • We are truly in a hiking paradise, whether you want a guided tour or to go it alone. Surrounded by mountains, forest and a huge lake, with one of the best climates in Europe. We can really please everyone!
  • The remarkable archaeological site of Acinipo, avery well preserved Roman amphitheatre on the top of a hill with jaw-dropping views of Sierra de Las Nieves natural park.
  • If you are planning to come over the summer don’t be scared of the heat - we have a pool on the terrace with unbelievable views! The council pool is just a 2 minute-walk from us and on top of that, there’s a wonderful lake just 8km from the property.
  • We’re in a great location, 20km from Ronda with buses running daily. An hour from the Malaga coast and less than 2 hours from Sevilla. It’s the perfect place to explore western Andalusia - being in the enchanting White Village.
  • One of the gates leads to the reserve biosphere of Grazalema’s Natural Park, one of the few places in the world where you can see the majestic Pinsapo pine tree.
