We stayed for a week mid-August with 2 teenage boys and we all agreed it was one of our favourite holidays ever. The first thing is the location – a breath-taking setting on its own hill with superb 360 views, 3km along a dusty track (perfectly fine to drive). No problems with sat nav- ours took us to the door,...

We travelled in a hire car from Nerja and as novices driving in Spain found the journey straightforward and fairly quick, with some great scenery. The track to the hotel was a little daunting first time (we half expected the hire car to be full of scratches/dents - it wasn't anything other then very dusty!) but we quickly got used...

El Geco Verde is a true gem of a hotel. The owners, Des and Ilaria really try to make your stay special. On arrival, my 7 year-old son and I were struck down with a stomach bug picked up on our road trip. That wrote off the first day of our 4 day visit. They managed to accommodate our hiking...

We went to El Geco Verde as a partial family (wife and eldest daughter aged 23) looking for a holiday that would be more interesting than lying on a beach (which I can only do for very short periods before becoming bored!) Well, Des and Ilaria certainly delivered that. We went trekking over mountains, horse riding, canyoning, kayaking, mountain biking...

We stayed for four nights with our children at this lovely eco-boutique hotel, in a lesser known corner of Andalucia. From arrival the stay was excellent, with a very friendly greeting from the owners (and their pets!). With terrific suggestions of things to see and do during the day we thought this was the best place we found in our...

We had a great family activity week. The location is a fantastic and unique setting (look at the photos on the web site). The owners are very friendly and can't do enough to help, organising the week's activities in a very flexible way.

If you follow the written directions to El Geco Verde, you will find yourself travelling approx 10 mins along a windy country lane to find this welcoming country B&B.

This was probably our most relaxing holiday ever that has left us with some perfect memories of happy, family time. The hotel is just lovely, accessed by a 3km long part gravel driveway, very rural with gorgeous views across the mountains, comfortable beds, perfect hosts and delightful home cooked food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Geco Verde is an ecological country hotel with stunning views in the magical Altiplano region of Granada, Andalucia. Our little hotel is fully off-grid, family run and family friendly. We specialise in tailor-made walking and activity holidays, so you can go at your own pace and get the right balance between action and relaxation. The nearby natural parks of Cazorla and Castril offer fantastic terrain for all outdoor activities, from idyllic mountain walks to lovely calm lakes for kayaking with the kids. Let our inside knowledge guide you through this fascinating and authentic corner of rural Spain, from sleepy whitewashed towns to curious troglodyte villages, discovering along the way a wealth of archaeological treasures and gastronomic delights. We offer twin/double rooms, family rooms or the whole hotel to hire, with capacity for up to 20 people. So whether you are longing to get off the beaten track, seeking adventure with the kids or planning a special get-together for colleagues or friends, have no doubts; El Geco Verde is the place to be. ... more   less
