BED & BREAKFAST / HUELVA province

 
casa annetteCasa Annette - Bed and Breakfast. Come and stay in the heart of the Natural Park of the Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche, in its prettiest village, Cortelazor La Real. Situated in the Sierra Morena, 100km northwest of Seville, we are perfectly placed to be used as a base for seeing the whole spectrum of Andalcian bird life. The Sierra lies athwart the spring and autumn migration routes and is particularly rich in raptors. Although slightly more than 100 km away, a daytrip to the world famous Doñana National Park is more than feasible. In addition to its wildlife, the area offers numerous well signposted walking routes and is justly famous for the standard of its cuisine. The village itself has amenities to suit every taste, but within easy driving distance there are the regional capital, Aracena, with its world famous cave system and a staggering variety of bars and restaurants to fit every taste and pocket; the water springs of Fuenteheridos; the viewpoint at the Peña de Arias Montano and the 10th century mosque at Almonaster La Real.
