Lovely private guesthouse outside the walls in Castillo de Castellar (Castellar de la Frontera). A hilltop village in Andalusia. One of the few remaining inhabited medieval fortresses in Europe. This is quintessential Andalusia, Southern Spain, with the beaches of Sotogrande, Los Alcornocales National Park, and Lago Guadarranque at your doorstep! 25 mins to the Costa del Sol and Gibraltar and 40 mins to Tarifa and the Costa de la Luz. Nature, Outdoor Activities and Pueblos Blancos ... Meet us on social media ... Come & Linger!
The property is located just outside the castle walls and gives people a real taste of what it's like to live in the heart of Spain, Campo de Gibraltar, close to Gibraltar, Ronda, and the Costa's. 25 minutes to the golden beaches of Sotogrande and 40 minutes to the kitesurfing beaches of Tarifa!
Kayak tours on the lake, tours to Morocco and castle tours all available with a guide upon request. Hiking and biking everywhere!
The house is 60m2 and has an open plan living room with small kitchen (with a Nespresso coffee machine!), a wood burner and a dining room table. It has a nice blend of rustic design alongside post modernism and it makes you feel comfortable. Just sit back and relax!
There is one double bedroom (160 cm/queen size) and a bathroom with shower, toilet and washbasin.
You have a private terrace with a stunning view of the lake below and amazing sunsets. Also a private garden if you were to bring your pet. And your own private entrance so you can come and go as you please!
The entire property is accessible to the guest, there are no common rooms or shared places; the entire building is private. Only 5 minutes to the castle.
We are available if you need us. We leave you to relax but give us a shout if you need help in any way. We are native Dutch and near native English.
Your tick and flee free pet is totally welcome with us. No pet fee!
We strive to live in a non smoking environment.
Please also note, Castillo de Castellar is a small village. There is only one restaurant and a few bars in Castillo de Castellar. There are plenty of restaurants in the village at the bottom of the hill: Castellar de la Frontera and many other places such as Sotogrande, Tarifa, San Roque etc. And of course the guesthouse has a kitchen!
The Castle of Castellar is a fortress castle of the XIII century, located in Castellar de la Frontera ( Andalusia, Spain ). It is located in the nucleus called "Castellar Viejo", on a mountain of the Alcornocales Natural Park (in front of the entrance of the castle is an information point ). Castellar de la Frontera sits in the heart of the Campo de Gibraltar, in the southeast of the Province of Cadiz.
Rental car is highly recommended as public transportation is non existent. We are out in the countryside and up a 7 km beautiful but fairly windy blacktop road.
Mountain biking and hiking are very popular around here and this allows you to get around as well. There are paths all the way to the beach.
