Modern comforts in an old, beamed mountain cottage. Spectacular views in every direction from the one-acre garden. Great walking, wild swimming and wildlife in the Sierra Castril natural park, with the charming market town of Castril 4 km away. A short film on You Tube, Castril Cortijo El Villar, gives you a good idea of the house and its setting. The film shows the whole house; this is the first-floor apartment.
We ask that, if you smoke, you do so outside. The garden has steep rocky edges, so young children need to be supervised.
We have a biological waste system so ask guests to be careful what goes down the loo.
Water shortages sometimes happen. We have a 1000 litre reserve tank which should see you through, but ask you to use water carefully.
We leave basic supplies in the house (our own olive oil, a few spices, detergents, loo rolls, toothpaste and razors...) and you are welcome to use them. It would be kind of you to replace anything that runs out for the next guest's sake.

I divide my time between York, where I have another holiday flat (New Walk Coach House) and lovely Castril. We love walking in the mountains and swimming in the lakes. On our travels, we've come to appreciate the comfort and freedom of holiday homes. That's influenced the way we host this place. It can be used as a 4bedroom house or two smaller apartments, so we have listed three options.
