Beautiful, light double room in lovely Andalus farmhouse set in the spectacular countryside of the Montes de Malaga National Park
|Address||Finca El Romeral, 29170 Colmenar, Malaga, Spain|
|Property type||Private room|
There are three fully restored double bedrooms (two with modern ensuite bathrooms with deep bath tubs and power showers) and a very comfortable single room. There are three king-sized beds and all the mattresses are extremely comfortable and top of the range. Guests say they sleep like logs here. It is extremely tranquil with just birdsong to accompany your slumber.
This extremely pleasant, light double room which we call ' the healing room' leads onto a patio full of plants and has a window overlooking the mountains around us. It can be set up with a double bed or two single beds depending on your preference. It also has its own large, light and airy ensuite bathroom with a deep bath tub and power shower.
There is a large, comfortable kitchen (with fab Colombian coffee as well as lots of teas and infusions) internet, wifi, a landline, huge gas oven, enormous fireplace, salt water swimming pool, organic vegetable garden, and lots of great areas to walk in, including down to the river which is part of the property. There is a lending library with a wide variety of literature and TV and DVD players available although most people prefer to enjoy their time here in other pursuits. You can do yoga, paint, write or whatever in our large, light workshop space or outside in the orchard, by the pool or anywhere you like.
We can do yoga with you if you like, have informal classes and can organise specific workshops as we are friends with a number of very experienced yoga teachers form a variety of traditions. There is also a weekly Tai Chi class in the village.
We are 2 kilometres from the nearest town, Colmenar, which is very typically Andalusian with a good variety of bars and restaurants which we can happily recommend. We are half an hour from Malaga and the airport and 1 hour from Granada, 1 hour and a quarter from Cordoba, 1.5 hours from Seville - ideally situated for getting to know these amazing Andalusian cities and seeing the Alhambra, the Mezquita of Cordoba, El Torcal, a beautiful national park 25 minutes from here and the prehistoric dolmen caves near Antequera etc.
Equally we are only half an hour from the beaches of the Mediterranean and the Costa de Sol and two hours from the more wild, white sandy Atlantic beaches of the beautiful Costa de Luz, Tarifa for windsurfing and partying, Vejer de la Frontera and Cadiz, the oldest port in Western Europe. ....
We love preparing delicious, healthy food which can be traditionally Spanish, Asian-inspired and international and is principally vegetarian although we also love fresh, locally-sourced fish and organic, homegrown fruits and vegetables. Nacho, my husband, trained in catering at the renowned 'La Consula' where Hemingway lived and members of the Royal Family and other notables have sampled local delicacies.
Breakfast has a small additional cost and depending on what you would like (fruit salad, smoothies, a traditional Andaluz breakfast, eggs (poached, boiled or fried), croque-madame, porridge, cereal, toast and homemade marmalade etc. etc.) costs between €3 and €6. We can happily provide you with other meals as well depending on your preferences and lunch and supper costs between €6 and €15 depending on what appeals to you.
Please note that even if dates appear as unavailable, we have several rooms so please check our other listings as another room might be free so ask us.
We are incredibly happy here and feel like we are living in a paradise and often have people come to stay who just revel in their time here. My Spanish husband is a maitre d' in a 5 star hotel and a fabulous (and very friendly) cook. I am a very experienced and fully qualified therapist and can give massage and reflexology treatments in the treatment room here. Please let me know in advance if you'd like to book in a massage or reflexology session to make your stay here even more extra special!! If you are interested in a private retreat for yourself or a small group, we would be happy to discuss this with you.
We love meeting new people and have been called excellent hosts. You can be as social or reclusive as you like - there is plenty of space to just hang out in, read, paint etc..
It is a beautiful retreat space and we host workshops on yoga, meditation, photography, permaculture, Spanish language and cuisine, art, flower remedies, Body Harmony, Mayan cosmology etc. etc. as well as the occasional party. We won't force any of this on you, though, if that's not your bag...
Plenty of parking and if you are travelling without a car, there are good public transport connections from here and we can do airport pick-ups or pick-ups from Malaga if necessary. We can arrange informal tours of Malaga as well as walks in the nearby countryside. We speak Spanish, English, French and a smattering of Italian and Portuguese...
Please note, guests often wish they could stay for an extra night to really be able to make the most of relaxing on the farm and getting to know the local area so please bear that in mind when you book.
We encourage you to help us to save electricity by turning off any lights that you are not using when you are not in your room.
Please be conscious of your use of water as the South of Spain needs to conserve as much water as possible.
Please bring your own towels for use by the pool or for the beach.
Please help us keep the house neat and tidy by not leaving belongings scattered about.
We ask guests to smoke outside and to be very careful with cigarette butts as there can be a fire-risk. Please use the ashtrays available.
Guests are welcome to use our washing machine and can use the kitchen appliances and oven if you choose to be self-catering and we just ask for a small contribution towards the cost of electricity/gas and water.
We recycle and ask guests do the same and we have separate rubbish bins for plastic, paper and card and organic material.
If you borrow anything, please put it back where you found it.
If there is absolutely anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable or pleasant in any way, please don't hesitate to tell us.
