A well positioned, well equipped rustic cottage with great character and charm.

4 of 5
This little cottage was our home for the week and it offered us everything that we had expected: Character, charm, well equipped and very central in position along the coastline of the Park. The cottage has lovely views from the terrace. With a pleasant 15 to 20 minute stroll to the local fishing village from the doorstep we were able to get all our supplies from the well stocked, friendly little supermarket. The village has a good waterfront restaurant that uses produce from the small farm next door to the cottage. We enjoyed hearing the farm animals in the morning and watching the goats in the yard. Especially the kids full of frolic and fun ! If you love nature and rustic accommodation this little cottage is a gem. The short gravel track from the road to the cottage is rough and bumpy, drive with care and it is not a problem to negotiate. All adds to the charm of the property. Jaime made us feel most welcome and very at home and the welcome gift was very much appreciated ! A crisp, fresh and fruity white wine. Thank you Jaime for creating such a charming, characterful place.

Wonderful spring break :)

5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful time staying at casa nana this Spring! The beach house is just beautiful and the perfect setting to explore the park...if you make it that far... Myself and partner plus grandparents and 3 children stayed for a week and as other reviews mentioned, found it difficult to think of anything better than strolling to the beach and enjoying the April sun on the fantastic roof terrace! Saying that, we did make it to mini Hollywood which was great fun and the Tabernas desert stunning to see. Also worth sticking your trainers on for a scramble up from Agua Armaga's beach to the old mine/tunnel for amazing views as well as a scramble down to playa Los muertos up the road with some of the clearest waters I've seen. The town is peaceful and beautiful and we really fell in love with the place. The house was a brilliant location to take our 5 year old and 22 month old twins being literally a minute from the beach. It was so easy to just stroll down there with them without having to pack up a million things and they could have spent the whole day playing with the sparkly sand. The house is kitted out with lots of creature comforts and things for the kids. It's beautifully decorated and maintained and it was a real delight to make such a stylish home there for a week. It was a pleasure to be surrounded by so many of Matthew Weirs lovely ceramics inside the house as well as enjoying them in the beautiful tiles of the main square just seconds down the road. Our little ones loved eating their ice creams there after dinner as they watched with interest the local kiddies showing off their Spanish football skills. I feel lucky to have stumbled across casa nana and really hope to visit again and explore the area some more...Thanks for sharing your beautiful home from home Ellie and family!
