Location

This group of three self-catering villas is to be found on the edge of the pretty village of Alajar located in the largest natural park in Andalucia which is situated in the south west corner of Spain.

Alajar is said to be the jewel in the Sierra de Aracena park because it is nestled under La Pena de Arias Montano a national monument on a rocky outcrop above the village dating back to the 16th century. From here there are spectacular views of the beautiful verdant countryside with cork, oak fruit and olive trees all around.

A holiday here is perfect for those who love the sun, walking, horse riding, bird watching, eating and drinking and enjoy spectacular countryside. As an ancient white Moorish hilltop village Alajar is full of interesting architecture with small narrow streets and many shops, restaurants and bars, all a short walk from Tresvillas. It’s the real Spain unspoilt by development and staying grounded in the friendly culture of the local region.

At 600 metres above sea level the altitude gives Alájar a more temperate climate than the plains below. So, although it can be warm during the day, in summer it cools off more at night than in Seville. As a result the climate supports a great variety of vegetation across the seasons. Chestnuts, olives, figs, wild mushrooms, oranges, lemons, and honey from the astonishing range of wildflowers to name just of few of the attractions that bring visitors to this part of Spain across the year.
