El Horcajo is an Andalucian working farm located in Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, 20 Km north-west of Ronda and a little over 100 km. from Sevilla and Málaga.
The main house is more than 170 years old and has been converted into fully-equipped quality rural accommodation, without losing any of its essential character. It offers relaxation in natural surroundings with a comfortable and intimate family atmosphere. Built around the house are family units which have been designed in a traditional style to blend in with the older buildings.
14 double rooms all with en-suite bathroom. 9 are on the ground floor and face the main patio. These rooms also have an entrance hall and a private terrace which looks out over the estate. One is specially adapted for disabled needs.
Breakfast is served in the dining room and takes the form of a self service buffet. We offer fresh orange juice, fruits, cheese, sausage meats, locally produced honey, yogurt and bread baked in a traditional wood-burning oven. Fresh coffee and tea are served alongside.
All the food served in the dining room is 'traditional local home cooking'. Some of the produce is actually grown on the farm such as free range eggs, organic olives and almonds. We only use the best local 'virgin extra' olive oil
A swimming-pool with its own terrace is a favourite with guests in the summer although the pool is open almost all year round. Nearby is an ecological orchard with almond and olive trees, main patios, gardens and two ancient threshing floors for grain.
In the evening guests are welcome to take a stroll around the grounds, along the well-lit paths.
The Hotel's estate and the surrounding "Sierra de Grazalema" Natural Park are exceptional for bird-watching, botanising and walking.
