We have just returned from a fabulous stay at the Posada San Marcos. The Posada has been beautifully restored, the rooms were very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed out time walking in this unspoilt part of Spain. Lucy and Angel were great, offering advise on walking routes, (their handy picture guides were really useful) and good places to eat along...

How lucky were we to find this amazing posada, run by wonderful Lucy, Angel and Sofia in such a stunningly beautiful totally unspoilt village in the Sierra de Aracena. As very seasoned travellers, La Posada de San Marcos would take some beating! We arrived at 1130 pm after a long journey to be welcomed like long lost friends and provided...

La Posada de San Marcos is a wonderfully conceived and perfectly executed location for those who long for the rustic charm of the "old Spain". The Sierra de Arecena region is unspoilt, full of charming, white-walled villages, castles, caves, churches & mosques. Hundreds of miles of walking trails criss-cross the area and La posada is a great base for further...

Easy to find and set on a peaceful street behind the town square (about 3 mins walk). Everything about Posada de San Marcos is very comfortable and a great place to base yourself for exploring the area, or to sit and do nothing. As you would expect, the accomodation is clean and spacious with homely decor. But for me what...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy a wonderful stay in a special part of the Natural Park Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche at Las Posadas in Alájar providing low impact, environmentally friendly accommodation within a natural park along with invaluable help and advice from your hosts Lucy and Ángel. At La Posada de San Marcos the only sound you will hear is the breeze in the cork oak trees, the babbling of the stream, birdsong and crickets. The view towards the oak clad hill behind us or towards the village and the Peña beyond provide the perfect backdrop from your room terrace or the gardens. The perfect opportunity to experience an environmentally friendly, energy efficient hotel with a superior level of accommodation and disabled access. Relax in our garden and if it gets too warm plunge into our 12 metre pool to cool off or take some exercise.Or alternatively you can stay at our sister hotel La Posada de Alájar, a renovated inn dating from the 18th Century where you are surrounded by the history of its walls and chestnut beamed ceilings. Centrally located by the village square with its restaurants, bars and shops everything is close to hand. Cosy rooms, cheerfully decorated, ensure an enjoyable and comfortable holiday. ... more   less
