Walks from here at this time of year (late April) have the bonus of the profusion of wild flowers. When Lucy is not cooking one of her marvellous...

We've just left Alajar and very much enjoyed our 5 days with Lucy and Angel. We very much agree with the other reviews here about the hospitality - it really is second to none, from the friendly welcome, to the quality of the meals and the help and advice.

The Posada de San Marcos is a great inn with most congenial hosts in the delightful village of Alajar.

The Posada de San Marcos is a superb place to stay in this relatively quiet, yet beautiful, part of the world. The owners, Lucy and Angel, are very friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal. The bar is run on an honesty system, which enhances the "home from home " feel.

La Posada de San Marcos is a wonderfully conceived and perfectly executed location for those who long for the rustic charm of the "old Spain". The Sierra de Arecena region is unspoilt, full of charming, white-walled villages, castles, caves, churches & mosques. Hundreds of miles of walking trails criss-cross the area and La posada is a great base for further...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy a wonderful stay in a special part of the Natural Park Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche at Las Posadas in Alájar providing low impact, environmentally friendly accommodation within a natural park along with invaluable help and advice from your hosts Lucy and Ángel. At La Posada de San Marcos the only sound you will hear is the breeze in the cork oak trees, the babbling of the stream, birdsong and crickets. The view towards the oak clad hill behind us or towards the village and the Peña beyond provide the perfect backdrop from your room terrace or the gardens. The perfect opportunity to experience an environmentally friendly, energy efficient hotel with a superior level of accommodation and disabled access. Relax in our garden and if it gets too warm plunge into our 12 metre pool to cool off or take some exercise.Or alternatively you can stay at our sister hotel La Posada de Alájar, a renovated inn dating from the 18th Century where you are surrounded by the history of its walls and chestnut beamed ceilings. Centrally located by the village square with its restaurants, bars and shops everything is close to hand. Cosy rooms, cheerfully decorated, ensure an enjoyable and comfortable holiday. ... more   less
