A great place to stay in Algodonales

5 of 5
It's not easy to create a truly hospitable guest experience when hosting weary, unfamiliar, travelers. It requires that two distinct factors be brought into balance. First one needs to provide a beautiful setting with a clean comfortable dwelling, tastefully and creatively appointed. Secondly there needs to be friendly, efficient, and capable service - provided with distinctive style - to make the experience complete. Julie and Warren have made this the essence of Casa La Parra. Easy to get to, easy to park at, and set in an absolutely beautiful and charming little town, Casa La Parra is a great choice!

Fantastic little oasis

5 of 5
A lovely little place, compact and bijou, but everything needed for a comfortable stay in this little village. Handy for small supermarkets and petrol station and plenty of places to eat. Well situated for visiting Serania de Ronda, the Alcornocales or Sierra de Grazelema.
