Please enquire about latest availability for the barn. If it is not available for your dates we have the other rural retreats which may be available, we try to arrange the preferred dates and the best accommodation for the size of each group.

Our beautiful barn is in its own grounds of 1 hectare at Finca al-manzil. It has its own entrance and complete privacy.

Really spacious with upstairs bedroom, a double height sitting/dining room of 45m2 with sofa, armchairs, dining for 6; wood burning stove; plenty of books and dvds; fully equipped kitchen with door to terrace with outside dining table on covered porch. A wood burning stove keeps the whole space really cosy in the cooler months.

Sunny bathroom with roomy shower and views of meadow.

Long covered terrace with views over the olive groves  and up to the peaks, a lovely place for dining and wathcing the birds.

The grounds surround the barn for complete privacy, a magical copse of
