Special things to see and do Castillejar is situated between the fertile valleys of the rivers Barbatas and Guardal. Some of the most beautiful natural parks in the country are only minutes away – Sierra de Baza to the south, the Sierras of Huescar, Castril, Segura and Cazorla to the north. These mountains offer stunning contrasts of pine forests, vertical rock faces, trout rivers, lakes and hot springs. Swimming pools, Lakes, Springs and Spas – There is a large swimming pool with bar restaurant and amphitheatre for concerts. This is situated on the outskirts of the village and is open during the summer months. There is also a large outdoor pool at nearby Cullar, and natural spring water pools in Orce and Huescar. The intense blue waters of lake Embalse de Negratin are in striking contrast to the landscape, and an ideal place for water sports, here you can relax in the thermal springs which are open every day except for Christmas day. Hiking, Cycling and Horse Riding – All of these activities can easily be undertaken virtually straight from the doorstep, there are many way marked routes, from simple strolls and walks between villages to more demanding challenges in the surrounding mountains. We can offer both guided and self guided walking holidays. Bike hire and horse riding are available locally. Walking holidays - We have owned the cave houses for the past four years during which time we have enjoyed exploring the stunning Natural Parks that surround them. We are now able to offer a range of guided and self guided walking holidays tailored to suit customers specific needs. From simply providing maps and advice or one off guided walking days through to full guided walking weeks. This beautiful area of Spain offers a stunning variety of walking opportunities from simple strolls between villages along fertile river valleys to full day treks into the surrounding mountains with summits over 2000 metres. In these serene mountains we have been privileged to see a wide variety of wild life including golden eagles, mountain cats and ibex.
