Casa Rural Los Algarrobales

For a moment, I wasn’t sure if this was real. Was I dreaming? What an absolutely enchanting setting. An endless number of white cottages packed together. At a background of stunning mountains and a large blue lake on the other side of town. How come I didn’t know about this place sooner? As I drove into town, I noticed a sign that said El Gastor. I parked my car at a cute little square and continued on foot; from one square to the next, all surrounded by white cottages. I spotted a bakery where I decided to buy some fresh bread and told the lady behind the counter how charmed I was with her home town. ‘Stay for a few days!’, she answered with pride in her voice. ‘I know a lovely little spot nearby. An old farm with fourteen comfy cottages.´

A dirt road took me to Casa Rural Los Algarrobales, the baker’s recommendation. About halfway there, a green Land Rover crossed my path. The car stopped and the driver stuck his head out the window. ‘Can I help you with anything?’, he asked. When I told him where I was going, his face lit up. ‘I'm Francisco, the owner!’ Francisco led the way back to his finca. We arrived a couple of minutes later and struck up a conversation. Just like the baker, Francisco is proud of his origins. ‘Did you know this region is full of archaeological finds from the new stone age?’. He proceeded to tell me all about the finca. ‘A French pianist arrived here back in the 80s. He fell in love and decided to stay here and perform. Friends of his later came up with the idea to share this place with other people. That is how the guest accommodations came about.'

Francisco and I walked across the estate. We passed the pool and arrived at some white cottages with cosy interiors. Typically Spanish with gorgeous paintings in different colours. He showed me to my cottage. The bed was in a small but atmospheric room with thick white walls. I soon realised I would have a great time at Casa Rural Los Algarrobales.
