Boring is not an option here, unless you really come here to do nothing... and for that too, here it is ideal! A large swimming pool (6mx12m), the terrace with several sitting areas and the beautiful garden form the setting of your holiday. The library, board games, petanque, table tennis, darts and our 6-hectare almond grove provide plenty of relaxation on site.
We can also offer a whole range of activities in the surrounding area. You can also contact us for questions or tips on possible specific
excursions or activities.
Padel is a mix of tennis and squash, for 2 or 4 players. The court is a small tennis court (10mx20m) usually made of artificial grass with walls around it, which can be used just like squash. The game is played with a "perforated" racket and a tennis ball. Anyone with a little "ball feeling" can play Padel. There are 2 courts in Vélez-Rubio and one in Chirivel. We can reserve one for you. It is a very fun activity and cheap, from 3 euros pp. (rackets rental included, for 1h30min). We have a set of rackets for 4 people, so renting is not necessary.
The nearest golf course is in Lorca (30min) and is a beautifully designed 18h golf course. You can
play golf there at democratic prices. Both the beginning and the advanced golfer will find what they are looking for. You can rent all necessary equipment.
A nature reserve in a mountainous setting provides a beautiful green scenery, ideal for the mountain biker. The altitude metres are the decisive factor here, as there are hundreds of kilometres of off-road tracks between 800 m and 1700 m altitude.
