The houses can be booked individually or in any combination for groups of up to 12/13.

Each house has its own barbecue and terrace areas for dining or relaxing. Relax on a lounger by the beautiful tiled pool, sit in the sun or in the shade of the ancient carob trees and chill.

Enjoy the scents and colours of the gardens or take a leisurely swim. All the windows in these well-appointed houses have stunning views. Enjoy the comforts of charming bedrooms, attractive bathrooms, cosy sofas, and mosquito netting on all the windows.

Come here at any time of the year – even with snow on the peaks of the nearby mountain Maroma – the temperature rarely gets too low for comfort. The sierras always have endless natural delights: the scent of the lavender, thyme and sage that edge any track you walk along, the fascinating bird life that changes with the seasons – and after a day out you can return to “La Calera” with its warmth and comfort.

One has the advantage of peace and seclusion although tapas bars, restaurants and village shops are within 10 mins. drive.
