Description of the house
Casa La Colmena is the ultimate vacation spot where you can spend hours absorbing the endless view in a splendid scenery. From the terraces you'll look out over a beautiful valley with olive trees and almond trees and the mountains of the nature park in the distance. La Colmena is a converted cortijo (formal farm house), totally free-standing and surrounded by nature, with only a few other houses in the same valley. Just enjoy the sun terraces or a place in the shade below the covered section, and revel in the flowering plants and shrubs around you. Stairs from the terrace take you down to the swimming pool, from where the surrounding nature is a unique experience. Casa La Colmena has been tastefully restored. The beautiful tiled floors and beams on the ceiling have created a characterful holiday house with 3 shower rooms and a contemporary kitchen. The old bread oven is still in place. The owners, Ralph and Gary, live at a 10 minute drive from the Casa. You can count on their advice and information anytime. The last stretch of 2 km to the house is on a dirt road with some steep bits. You can go for a walk into the valley straight from the house.
