El Cañuelo

Stay in a beautiful little hamlet with beautiful lake and ocean views. Small whitewashed Casas and casitas in a mountain hamlet, with a rustic on-site bar and pool, surrounded by birds, bougainvillea and breathtaking views.

It’s a steep climb through olive groves to reach the hamlet of El Cañuelo. Perched high in the mountains, with clear views to the 25 kilometer-distant Mediterranean, it’s a wonderful place, and the nice holiday homes with their terraces merge charmingly into the traditional village; Rafael the goatherd’s house is opposite.

The cute houses are not very luxurious, but El Cañuelo is as authentically Andaluz as it gets. It has a lot of charm. Step outside and you’re in a bird-sung world of bougainvillea and sunshine: take to the village trail, explore the nearby markets or drink in the spectacular views.

There is a bar in El Cañuelo that you can use during your stay. The bar has spacious outdoor terracing with spectacular views. Indoors there is space for several tables and there are two fireplaces for winter use.

Swimming pool

The swimming pool, called locally the ‘Mickey Mouse’ because of its shape, is 7 x 7 meters with the two small ‘ears’ one with a depth of 90 centimeters and the other about 15 centimeters. The main pool is 2 meters at its deepest point. The bar and location has Wi-Fi.

The Yoga Shala

There is a beautiful, recently refurbished, spacious Yoga Shala. It has big windows with a lot of light coming into the room.

Furthermore, there are several platforms / terraces where you can do the yoga outside if the weather permits it.
