Description

At a thousand meters above sea level, our ecological Guesthouse is an 'off-grid' destination for creatively minded travellers high in the mountains of Andalucia.
In the heart of a beautiful Natural Park, this ‘eco-chic’ guest house and 47 acre farm resides within a place of extreme natural beauty, profound peace and tranquillity and an awe inspiring wilderness, in one of Spain’s most dramatic alpine deserts.

Our place combines two of the principle ideas fundamental for people who love peace, inspiration and the natural world. Ecology and creativity.
We use the power from the sun and wind, cooking and heating with wood and recycling everything.
As a creative retreat we are a place for the expression of art, design and creativity in all it’s forms. It is a place where one can withdraw from everyday life and focus on one’s creativity in a culturally stimulating environment.

NOTE: as winter approaches we are looking for strong folk who can cut and chop wood for the house. People who are physical and able to move rocks, dig holes, build roads, clear overgrown areas of land and dig soil. If that's you (genuinely) then you will have a good time in the fresh air in the mountains.
