Two doors away from a great little deli/supermarket and only five minutes walk to the centre of historic Alhama and it's stunning limestone gorge, Casa Navidad is very well placed. You'll find lots of useful information in the house including maps, information about the local cuisine, best bars/restaurants, opening times, bus times and even some useful vocabulary to ensure you feel right at home.
If you're travelling with a larger group you can book Casa Navidad together with Casa Esquina which is next door - together the two houses sleep up to eight people.
We can put you in touch with someone local who does airport pickups if you don't fancy driving - and there's plenty of on street parking by the house if you do.
There are some great options for going for a refreshing swim in the summer months. In the town of Alhama itself there is an outdoor pool with a lovely shaded/grassed area and a little bar. Less than 10 minutes drive out of town brings you to Pato Loco (Crazy Duck) which is a great rural restaurant with a swimming pool where you can relax and while away the afternoon. The Rio Alhama, in the gorge, has a number of delightful swimming holes. Gorgeous Lake Bermejales is a great place to swim as the water is cool and fresh; delightful after lunch and sunbathing on the shores.
