Important notes on accommodation
Dog friendly with basic rules (common sense rules) this house is a good size for up to 10 people. We have now exchanged a double bed for a kingsize bed/settee in one of the double bedrooms so can be used as a cosy Winter lounge as its easy to keep warm, the bed settee is large and comfortable to sleep in and can be left as a bed during your stay or quickly converted back to a settee and used as a cosy second lounge. Free WiFi throughout the house.

The Sierra espuña and the surrounding mountain roads are perfect for road cycling (many professionals use the local roads for training purposes i.e. Tour de France, La Vuelta etc) and obviously mountain biking within the nature park is phenomenal , not all routes for road cyclists are mountainous so its not too difficult to find a route for an easier ride as there are many canal routes cut through the mountains as well, making it perfect for families (minimum age of 12) and older groups.
Try the downhill descent, a great route for an easier ride, if you want it difficult and taxing then we can supply these routes also!
We do not suggest to ride from late May to early October because of the extreme heat during that time. We offer a number of great packages. Please visit our Book Your Theme page or contact us directly to receive information. Airport transfers and car hire can also be arranged.
