A difficult, but exciting, day for Pilar and Juan, both medical professionals, nurse and doctor, was when they decided to make an important change in their lives after a career of 30 years. As keen nature enthusiasts, they decided to leave the Health Service and start to look for the most suitable location in Andalusia to set up their new project: getting a rustic piece of land to build several Rural Tourism Houses. The task was not easy, as the place would need to meet five essential requirements: Nature, Tranquillity, Comfort, History and Multicultural.
They spent nearly two years and finally they found the right place: the Sierra de Aracena. They now justifiably call it: the Serrano Paradise. The project has been carried out with the professional advice of experts in Rural Architecture, and it is under their supervision that 2 old buildings have been restored and 5 more houses have been built.
Eventhough the houses present a rustic style and decoration, which blends in with the typical house in the Sierra, they have been built with all the present day technological advances: hot water and central heating, (eventhough they all have a fireplace), insulated walls and roofs, and double glazing windows.
The roofs are covered in the old traditional Arabic tiles. Underneath there are fine wooden beams and rafters. The houses have been fully authorized by the Public Administration Authorities and especially by the Huelva Tourism Office with the classification of Basic for one house and Superior for five houses. The houses are located in an area surrounded by trees with enough space between each one to preserve intimacy and a natural, peaceful environment, essential for a good rest in the country.
