Beautiful and magical place to stay, among the real and rural mountains of the Sierra. Amazing pool, lovely spacious gardens with the most amazing flowers and plants, beautiful warm and well designed interior and exterior design. The surroundings are just as amazing with the best local food, lovely walks and a fun, buzzy town nearby.. Felt reborn after visiting el Tonero and will definitely be back!
El Toreno is and all round perfect place for a relaxing holiday and we could not recommend it more! We have stayed here a few times now as we can't find anything that compares to it. It is so homely and cosy, there is lots of space for relaxing on your own or doing group activities like table tennis, pool games etc.
The local markets/town are good to visit and so close and lots of lovely local pottery which I seem to bring more of home every time I go!
Highly recommended from one happy guest!
What a lovely way to spend Xmas in the sun! We had gorgeous weather: 12 clear days of splendid sunshine, and just one rainy morning. With our four tiny toddlers the house couldn't have been more fitting - they got up at 6, their parents moved them into the living room/kitchen, and we never heard them! Lots of room in and outside the house, away from it all, but still within minutes of lively Aracena with adorable shops and restaurants.
With all the locks on the gates around the house we never felt uncomfortable or unsafe for the children - a real holiday, for the parents as well as the grandparents.
The central heating worked perfectly well, it kept us warm all day and at night we made good use of the blazing fire in the upstairs living room.
Caretaker Abel was very helpful, what a nice person he is. Very responsive.
