Lovely private guesthouse outside the walls of the hilltop village of Castillo de Castellar de la Frontera, southern Spain. One of the last inhabited medieval fortresses in Europe. This is quintessential Andalusia, with the golden beaches of Sotogrande, Los Alcornocales National Park, and Lago Guadarranque at your doorstep! 20 mins to the Costa del Sol/Gibraltar and 30 mins to Tarifa/Costa de la Luz. Nature, Outdoor Activities and Pueblos Blancos. Meet us on social media... Come & Linger!
