Rural B&B with Pool, free WiFi + Air-Con in all rooms. Fantastic mountain views, close to Mini Hollywood and Almeria Speed Circuit. Restaurant | Bar within walking distance.
35 minutes from Beaches, Airport, Golf courses. Very tranquil area
Our home is situated in a very rural area, off the main road down a dirt track, (400 mtrs) so please don't expect lots of bars, restaurants and supermarkets close by!!
We offer 2 bedrooms, both with en-suite bathroom, this one with a double bed, and another one with twin beds(for photos of this room, please see our other listing, TABERNAS Country House B&B 2 ) . (Please note, the 2 rooms are NOT 0.1km apart as is suggested on here, but only a corridors distance away from each other!!)
Both rooms are simply yet fully furnished, and we provide tea and coffee making facilities, towels, hairdryers and in the bathrooms soap, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, toothbrushes and toothpaste. There are also a few little extras, biscuits, orange juice, water, sweets, torches and alarm clocks. We also provide beach/pool towels for your use.
Both rooms have french doors that lead onto a covered terrace with a table and chairs for your use.
PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE A BED AND BREAKFAST ONLY, (ALTHOUGH WE CAN PROVIDE AN EVENING MEAL, ON REQUEST, FOR 8 EUROS PER PERSON, 24 HOURS NOTICE REQUIRED) WE DO NOT HAVE A GUEST KITCHEN, IF YOU WANT TO STAY SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU CAN COOK YOUR OWN MEALS, THEN YOU NEED TO LOOK FOR SELF CATERING ACCOMMODATION!! However, if you would like to use the BBQ, or make a cold meal, then we are happy to supply plates, cutlery, condiments etc, and there is a fridge in your room that you can use to keep your food/drinks in.
If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil break away from tourist areas then we are the place for you.
We are situated in the Desierto de Tabernas, which has 3 Western Theme Parks, the most famous being Mini Hollywood (now named Oasys) where many westerns and other films were made, such as The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Lawrence of Arabia.
If you are interested in Speed Circuits, then Almeria Track is only 4kms from here.
We are only 35 minutes drive from Almeria airport, beaches and city centre, and about an hour and a half from the historical city of Granada, where the ski-ing in winter is one of the best places in Europe.
Tabernas boasts some of the clearest skies in Europe, so much so that there is an observatory at Calar Alto which you can see from the house. So if you enjoy star gazing, then make the most of our roof terrace where you will get a wonderful view of the galaxy.
We also have a swimming pool that our guests are welcome to use (open May-Oct only)
Breakfast is a simple affair, a choice of cereals (normally 7-9 varieties) fruit juice, tea or coffee, yogurts, fresh fruit, toast with homemade jams (fig, strawberry, spiced fig and plum and peach or apricot) marmalade and locally sourced honey. However, if guests have any special requirements (ie meats, cheeses, croissants) we are happy to supply those at no extra charge. In the summer we serve breakfast on the pool terrace, but in bad weather, it is served in our dining room.
We also offer the option of eggs (please ask the night before or as soon as you come through for breakfast, and we will be happy to oblige) on/with toast for breakfast, ie soft boiled, fried, scrambled or poached, (All our eggs are freshly laid daily by our own hens) at no extra charge. Or you could have a full English, (fried egg, bacon, sausages, baked beans, mushrooms, tomatoes and fried bread or toast) If this is in place of the cereal/toast/yogurt, egg with toast etc that we normally serve, there is no extra charge, however, if it is a well as, then a charge of 3 euros will be made.
PLEASE NOTE, FULL ENGLISH MUST BE PRE-ORDERED BEFORE 6PM THE NIGHT BEFORE TO ALLOW US TO BUY FRESH PRODUCE.
As there is only one bar/restaurant within walking distance we can provide an evening meal (normally a cold buffet of meats, cheeses, tortilla, potato chips, bread, salad, or a BBQ plus a dessert) at 8 euros per person, including drinks. 24 hours notice required. (Please note, this is subject to us being available, as we sometime have other arrangements made to go out ourselves)
There are other bars/restaurants within about 5kms, and if you would like to go to one of those, but prefer not to drive, we are happy to take you and collect you for a minimal charge.
We are also a smoker friendly house, but we do request, when possible, that you only smoke outside on the terraces and not in your rooms.
For stays of 7 nights or more we include a complimentary evening meal.
We also have 2 bicycles (male and female) that you are welcome to borrow.
All outside areas are available to the our guests, the only thing we do ask is that you do not use our living area as a thoroughfare, but use your french doors and side terraces to access the garden and pool.
Although we do not permit guests to cook hot meals in our kitchen (unless it is something you want to put in the microwave) we are happy for you (by prior arrangement) to use the kitchen to make salads/sandwiches or to prepare food for the BBQ. (We have all the utensils etc needed at your disposal)
We also have a chest freezer in one of the outhouses that the guests are welcome to use.
We love to interact with our guests, and on arrival you will be invited to join us for a welcome drink. We are always available for a chat or for advice, but also we respect our guests privacy/space, so won't disturb you if you want some quiet time.
We will not accept a reservation without a contact telephone number.
While we do say that we are flexible about check-in/check-out times, we do ask that you give us an approximate time of arrival/departure so that we can plan our day around being here to let you in/out. Also, unless you have a late flight, or you are delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, the latest time you can arrive is 10pm.
Although we have Air Con in the room, we would ask that you do not leave it running when you are not in the room. If you do, we will make a charge of 5 euros per day extra! We are a very laid back establishment, for example, if you would prefer your breakfast before showering and getting dressed, then by all means come through for breakfast in your dressing gown/PJ's. Although we like our guests to 'make themselves at home' we do ask that you respect our privacy where possible, and not come through the main part of the house (ie our living area) to access the pool and garden, but use your French doors and side terraces. Also, to save on washing, we do ask that if you want to lie on top of the bed for a Siesta, that you take off the top cover beforehand.
Our dogs are part of our family, and in the summer they also like to swim in the pool to keep cool....if this is a problem for you, then we are not the place for you!
I have been running my B&B since 2006, after spending most of my working life in England in the hospitality trade. My Husband Jim and I really enjoy meeting new people, getting to know all about them and their lives, and giving them a comfortable, homely stay with us. Our motto is "arrive as strangers, leave as friends", and I am glad to say that a lot of my previous guests have returned time and time again, so I guess we must be doing something right!!
We are animal lovers, and have 2 beautiful dogs, 2 lovebirds, chickens and goldfish.
We love entertaining and going out with friends, but also cherish our quiet times too.
