Welcome to Yurts in Spain
Welcome to our yurt bed and breakfast guest house in the Guadiaro Valley. We are delighted to be able to offer you a wonderful holiday in a truly beautiful part of Spain.
We have three yurts and two little studio apartments set in a large open grassy area leading down to the Guadiaro river.
Our garden contains fig, walnut and almond trees and we have a 10m x 5m swimming pool for the use of our guests.
We provide bed and breakfast for our yurt guests while the studios are totally self-contained. There is also a barbeque area and we organise regular barbeque, plancha and paella evenings.
We are surrounded by the Natural Parks of Grazalema and Alcornocales and just beside the little village of La Cañada del Real Tesoro, also known as Estación de Cortes de la Frontera. This valley is a haven for all sorts of birds and animals and is sheltered by magnificent olive, cork and oak trees.
There are lovely walks through the countryside which are perfect for all levels of fitness and you will often meet little black pigs foraging under the trees and hear bells chiming in the distance as the goats graze under the olive trees.
Cortes de la Frontera, Andalucia and the local area
This is a holiday experience which combines the tranquility of the Spanish countryside with the opportunity of taking the car or train and exploring the cities and the coast of Andalucia.
Most main tourist destinations in the area are an easy drive away which means that you can take a day trips to Seville, Cadiz, Malaga or Gibraltar.
Don't forget that we are less than one hour to the coast where you can enjoy a dip in the Mediterranean and the chance to visit fashionable Marbella with its beautiful old town or the more laid-back Estepona. If you drive a little further, you can go to Tarifa, a wonderful spot for whale and dolphin-watching, kite-surfing or just a great place to relax.
We are just a 10-minute walk from the village of La Cañada del Real Tesoro which has all the basic amenities: bars, restaurants, bakery, butchers, a small supermarket and the train station.
A further 6kms up the hill is the 'pueblo blanco' of Cortes de la Frontera where you will find more services, including a post office and banks as well a bi-weekly market and lots of great tapas bars.
This town, first established by the Phoenicians in 11th Century was in the hands of the Moors for many centuries before being finally and definitively conquered by the Christians in 1485. You will see examples of various architectural styles bearing testament to the long history of this town.
