Don Jose's Chambers (1 bedroom, sleeps 2)

Don Jose's Chambers sleeps 2 people. It is spread across two levels. The bedroom is upstairs with a queen-size bed and a newly installed 'rustic' styled ensuite bathroom with modern fittings (walk-in rainforest shower/locally crafted sink/WC and bidet). The bedroom has French doors onto a juliette balcony (overlooking the Terrace's patio), with stunning views across the mountains to the Mediterranean and Morocco. A Spanish staircase links the bedroom to the downstairs lounge/kitchen area. Again the lounge benefits from the same views as the bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a cosy wood burning stove for winter months. Don Jose's Chambers also has the sole use of a pretty leafy patio area outside the lounge. This patio overlooks the pool area and is bathed in sun until late in the day.
