  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Puerto the Mazarron has a bus station from where you can travel to various towns and places. Having your own car or renting one would make it easier for you to visit local beaches and areas of interest.
    We are in a natural reserve with high fire risk, smoking is only permitted in one designated area due to forest fires.
    We enjoy the quite life and nature and the tranquility.
    It is an ideal place for those people who like to disconnect.
    We are respectful of people s space and as this is our home that it is reciprocated. Although water is limited and gets brought in by lorry of course daily showers are permitted and we are happy to share the washing machine with mutual conferring not to waste water or energy. We will also have to discuss and teach you how to live with solar energy as there are certain guidelines.
