Cool Camping in Spain

“Glamping it up with the kids in Andalucia!”

Cool Camping Kids author, Alexandra Tilley Loughrey holidays at Cloud House Farm and gives a first class review;

“Cloud House can be any accommodation you want it to be, because of its amazing – and remote – location. It’s an “outside the box” self-catering holiday, with acres of space to explore and play games in. It’s rustic outdoor living, with endless hiking opportunities. It’s a luxurious boutique retreat, with great eating experiences only 20 minutes drive away. It’s a place to blast out your fave ipod toons, or perhaps just meditate. Either way, however you use it, once you’ve been, you’ll wish you were there right now.”

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.

River Walking: Rio Genal, Genalguacil

“The valley of the river Genal is a real gem. It passes through three distinct zones – from the barren treeless karst of the upper valley below the peak of Jarestepar (1427m), through the chestnut plantations around the villages of the upper Genal (stunning around November, when in autumnal colours) to the oak forests of the lower Genal. The real attraction, however, is the white villages – fifteen of them dotted prominently on both sides of the deep river valley . There are a network of pathways connecting these which make for great walking in stunning landscapes – usually easy underfoot , but with some savage ascents, particularly if crossing the river between villages! Every village has its charm and attraction, but if one has to single out a few they would be Alpandeire, Parauta and Igualeja (where the source of the river is to be found) in the upper Genal valley and Benalauria, Jubrique and Genalgaucil (a village loved by artists, with sculptures on every street corner), in the lower valley.”
