Glamping in Spain

5 Star Guest Review on Tripadvisor :

“People talk of ‘getting away from it all’, well Cloud House Farm is the real deal. Beautiful Andulcian mountains, shimmering streams for swimming in, biking and hiking heaven, and the occasional immaculate little white town if you want to check out some real and rustic Spanish cuisine.”

“Our yurt was a work of art. My wife hates camping but this is about as far from canvas and airbeds as you can get. With a double bed and a futon for our two-year old, she had little to complain about. In fact after 2 nights, she even proclaimed she ‘loved it!’”

“The Cloud House hosts are a lovely English couple called Dan and Justine who made us completely welcome to their beautiful ‘campo’ retreat. They were there with fountains of knowledge on the local area when we needed advice, but left us in complete privacy at all times so we could ‘soak up the tranquility’ as Dan eloquently put it. We can’t wait to go back.”

Secluded Mountain Yurt Holiday by Tour Dust

Cloud House Farm listed with Tour Dust, the worlds premier Wilderness, Adventure, Culture holiday listing site.

This yurt holiday in Spain offers total seclusion in the Sierra Bermeja mountains an hour from the Costa Del Sol. A solitary yurt within 17 acres of farm land, accommodation is comfortable and comes complete with hammocks, river pools and breath-taking views.

About an hour inland from the sandy beaches of Andalucia’s Costa del Sol, lies the little-known Sierra Bermeja mountain range. Located so close to the tourist sites of this part of the Spain, the mountains hold many of Andalucia’s best kept secrets, with hills and valleys dotted with white-washed villages, fresh mountain streams and breath-taking views. The pace of life here is slow and relaxed and a far cry from the bright lights of the coast. Griffon vultures circle overhead, whilst sunrise brings stunning colours to the mountains, accompanied by the calls of cuckoos and hammering of woodpeckers. In the villages, local tapas bars serve regional specialities and people go about their business at a sedate pace.

Set in complete seclusion, on 17 acres of farmland, this yurt provides the ultimate relaxing and off the beaten track accommodation in an idyllic location. The farm enjoys a scenic setting in the mountains, with forests of cork oak, olive and chestnut trees, interspersed with orange and lemon tree groves. The yurt is in a peaceful setting, away from the farm buildings, with breath-taking views. When the sun becomes too much, there are hammocks set up in the shade. There are also fresh water streams at the edge of the farm, about a 20 – 25 minute walk away, where you can take a dip in one of the river pools to cool off.

Away from the tranquility of the farm, there are many places of interest to visit within easy reach. The stunning historical town of Ronda is about an hours drive, the beaches of Estepona are just over an hour by car and Seville is 2.5 hours away.

Yurt Holiday in Spain : Responsible Travel

Cloud House Farm Yurt Holidays now listed with Responsible Travel “travel like a local”.

Set within 17 acres of a mountainous forest of cork oak, chestnut & olive the farm provides ample renewable wood fuel to fire the wood burning range in the farm house. The range in turn heats the house, allows food to be cooked & also heats the water. We have tried to minimize our non renewable carbon foot print and only rely on gas as a backup. The Farm in 100% off grid, an array of PV solar panels provide power to run all our electrical equipment. The yurt is also tied into this system.

Fresh water is gravity fed from the farms natural spring while storage tanks and rainwater harvesters help sustain the gardens throughout the summer. Wastewater is processed through a twin chamber septic tank and filtered through a gravel soak away. All grey water is recycled to feed plants, while our guests can enjoy using our outdoor eco loo, a compost toilet boasting spectacular views of the mountains across the valley.
We are currently applying for Organic status, our vegetable garden is only fertilized by using our neighbours goat manure (rocket fuel!), and we will not allow the use of any non natural cleaning product as it drains directly onto the Farm. All organic food waste is composted for use in the garden. Chicken manure is also utilized.
Half of the farm (some 10 acres) is left wild to encourage wildlife, offering a home to Iberian wild boar, deer, foxes, wild cats, kestrels, wood peckers, bea eaters & golden orioles to name but a few.

We encourage people to arrive by train from either Ronda or Cortez de la Frontera. Its possible to get a bus from Ronda to our local village Genalguacil or Benarraba from where we can arrange a pick up. Its possible to walk or ride to the farm once in the valley.
