Une Oasis en plein dans les montagnes d'Andalousie

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 semaines inoubliables. Ici vous ne manquerez de rien et surtout pas de soleil !! Malgré un climat aride nos deux petites filles de 5 et 8 ans n'ont jamais été dérangées par la chaleur qui avoisine souvent 40°C en plein après-midi. Tout est fait pour votre confort et pour vos enfants si vous en avez.

La location est très fonctionnelle et à tous les équipements nécessaires pour passer de bonnes vacances.

La piscine est très sécurisante, même pour les petits qui ne savent pas nager, la cabane de pirate offre un espace de jeu en plein air mais ombragé à toute heure.

Pour les amateurs il y a un terrain de pétanque ainsi que la possibilité de faire du tir à l'arc (matériel pro).

Les propriétaires se sont montrés très serviables et toujours à notre écoute. Un des vélos n'étant pas adapté à notre petite, Alan a monté une selle sur un vélo adulte afin que nous puissions nous promener tous ensemble. Ce Monsieur étant aussi un excellent musicien, nous avons eu le plaisir de pouvoir écouter quelques ballades à la guitare au bord de la piscine (éclairée le soir) ce qui renforçait le côté déjà romantique de l'endroit, bref le paradis.

Nous recommandons cette location pour les familles avec ou sans enfants et nous remercions encore Alan et Lynn pour leur accueil, leur discrétion et tous leurs bons conseils.

Our adventure play tower know as the Dawn Treader, is an escape from it all for children of all ages, let their imaginations run wild.The Spa pool with slide set with in the wooded garden, a wonderful place to unwind. Tables and chairs in various places set within the wood are there for al fresco dinning. The scenery and mountainous area make this a superb location for walking, bird watching, and cycling. The wild flowers in the spring time are sublime,also the butterflies and other insect make this a unique location for many species.

There are astro turf football pitches and a full side swimming pool in the village, along with bars, restaurants, plazas and play parks. During the year the village of Zafarraya hold many theatres, outdoor cinemas and other travelling shows, as well as the traditional fiestas.

The costa del sol is a 1/2 hour drive to the south offering lovely beaches and towns to visit with all the modern facility. The El Torcal national park near Antequera is a must see, as is the wolf park. As La Carpa is situated just off the A341, it is so easy to get to many destinations, visit the beautiful city of Granada, with the magnificent, Alhambra palace and the old town of the Albicin. Visit the brilliant water park, Agua ola, the children will love it as will you! It also has a great science museum .Granada is 1 hour drive away, as is Malaga which also has a marvellous old town, the picaso museum, vintage car museum and so much more.
