I've had the pleasure of visiting much of Andalusia throughout the last 4 years. La Posada de Alajar ranks at the top of my list in several categories.
Accommodations: Incredible attention to detail using local, nature-based products. You feel like you're at home and feel so relaxed and comfortable you don't want to leave. My room was on the ground floor and had double panned French doors that opened to lush green grass with direct access to the pool and views of the hills. Each morning I was greeted by the most wonderful hosts who prepared breakfast for me (included in the price) incorporating the most typical flavors and foods of the area (with 10 different types of olive oil...who would have thought!).
Nature: The Posada is located in the quaint town of Alajar with hardly any tourists. You get a real flavor for the culture and get to enjoy beautiful trails along rivers and through tiny villages without the typical crowds. The tiny town itself has a couple great places to eat and a lovely plaza with views of the historic church.
Activities: Angel and Lucy (the owners) can give you a wealth of activities and trails you can enjoy. They have walked many of the trails themselves and have documented them in their own maps. They love to share their information which makes you feel pampered. Horseback riding, hiking, caving, repelling, canoeing, wine tasting and more...take your pick! The real joy was signing up for private yoga classes with Susanne in the morning and watching the sun rise over the majestic canyons and mountains of southern Spain, truly sacred and unforgettable!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Enjoy a wonderful stay in a special part of the Natural Park Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche at Las Posadas in Alájar providing low impact, environmentally friendly accommodation within a natural park along with invaluable help and advice from your hosts Lucy and Ángel. La Posada de Alajar is a small, historical Anglo-Spanish run posada (small rural hotel) in Alajar, Sierra de Aracena, Andalusia. The posada offers the perfect accommodation for walking touring and bird watching holidays in one of the few unspoilt areas remaining in Andalusia. Centrally located by the village square with its restaurants, bars and shops everything is close to hand. Cosy rooms, cheerfully decorated, ensure an enjoyable and comfortable holiday. The nearby historical city of Seville and the Portuguese border is little over an hour away so our posada is the perfect base to explore this beautiful corner of Spain. Alternatively you can stay at our sister hotel La Posada de San Marcos, where the only sound you will hear is the breeze in the cork oak trees, the babbling of the stream, birdsong and crickets. The view towards the oak clad hill behind us or towards the village and the Peña beyond provide the perfect backdrop from your room terrace or the gardens. The perfect opportunity to experience an environmentally friendly, energy efficient hotel with a superior level of accommodation and disabled access. Relax in our garden and if it gets too warm plunge into our 12 metre pool to cool off or take some exercise. The pool and gardens is available to guests staying at La Posada de Alájar. ... more less
