Casa Andaluz is a family run business, we live on site, and we offer B&B in a light airy traditionally decorated twin room with private shower room.  As a family we have many years' experience in the hospitality business, the last 12 years spent in the beautiful English Lake District, where we ran a very successful vegetarian restaurant. We enjoy walking and outdoor activities and are happy to recommend activities, excursions etc in and around El Gastor.  Car hire is recommended, but airport transfers can be arranged.

Guest Comments:

"We love El Gastor, it's pretty, clean, and obviously well loved. The people are very friendly."

"Visit the Sierra de Grazalema, we saw a spiral of 10 Griffin vultures. Ronda is well worth a visit, lots of monuments, and that bridge!" 

"Nikki & Joe are great hosts. See blood red cork oaks near Grazalema, go to the Cueva de la Pileta, and be led deep into the earth by parafin lamp to see mysterious cave paintings, and after all that sit and watch the sun dip from the mirador in El Gastor."

"Fantastic accommodation, friendly locals, and breathtaking scenery"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you - thank you all for making us so welcome and so much part of the family. Our walk on the via verde was very enjoyable with fantastic views, the wild flowers and butterflies were just magnificent.   To be recommended."

"We all thought that the accommodation a real pleasure, with the meals being a highlite and that a return visit would be a must."
