Old stone monastery with a view

An old stone monastery in the midst of one of Andalusia’s most beautiful natural parks.

Boasting vast interior spaces that spill out onto beautiful patios. A maze of ruins overwhelming the exterior spaces, and the terracotta textured walls creating a perfect balance of such a magnificent building being located in a natural setting. The open gardens that surround the monastery, have their own charm and can be enjoyed peacefully during the hot summer days or even at night, under a thick ceiling of stars, as many stargazing activities take place at this very location.

Ideal for both an intimate low key celebration or a grand shindig, with complete freedom to create the wedding desired. The monastery has accomodation for up to 30 guests, various communal spaces and a pool with views of the rolling Andalusian hills. Making it a perfect location for a rural escape for a few days, or even longer. The closest village is reachable on foot if you fancy the country walk of course, and many other hikes and excursions can be organised from the venue. It is situated in an area where organic farming is the norm so most of the food and drink served in the area is local, traditional and seasonal.
