WHERE WE ARE
WHO WE ARE
Our cortijo, “La Macarena”, is situated at the south side of Sierra Nevada in the middle of the region known as 'Las Alpujarras', at almost 2000 m above sea level. The property has six hectares of land dedicated to ecological vegetables production and pasture for our cows. There are two comfortably rebuilt houses available for rent with a total capacity of 12-15 persons.
We are located inside the Sierra Nevada Nature Park right beside the National park. The nearest village is Yegen at some 11 km of non-asphalted mountain trails from our house. Yegen is at 100km distance from Granada and a little bit closer to Almería.
Our location is an ideal place to feel far away from it all and close to nature at its purest essence. This is the typical high mountain's wildlife with oak and pine forest, mountain meadows, small creeks, permanent snow fields and alpine plains and tundras. The main characteristic is the immensity of this landscape that reaches the African coastline on the other side of the Mediterranean Sea.
Normally we are closer here to the clowds than to the village or the road. The feeling of freedom in this solitary environment - our only neighbour lives at some 5km distance - invites us to hike, meditate and practice mountain sports and activities.
The quality of air and water is extremely high and this permits a high quality level for our vegetable production, our cheese and butter and our cider "Fuente Guijarro", which is the most southern cider in Europe.
If you like to be the owner of your space and time, to feel free and far away from conventional roles and stress, take care of yourself inside and outside, live healthily and calm, you are invited to come up to our cortijo and enjoy.
