Secret Garden
in the News Paper!

An article written by Matt Jones, journalist for the "Costa News" in Spain

LOCATED just over half an hour by car from the wonderful coast that we know and love, is the Genal valley. Situated in the Serrania de Ronda mountain range, in the province of Málaga, this relatively unknown area is one of only a handful of untouched natural ex-panses in Andalucía, and home to many species of wildlife. With its mountainous terrain, magnificent views to the coast, clean flowing waters of the Genal river and Mediterranean oak forests, it is a very special area.

secret garden in the news

 In fact, the 42,000 hectares that cover the Genal valley have been designated a natural park and it's not hard to see why - the Genal river is reported to be one of the cleanest in Europe and the won- derful trees that spread over the valley make up one of the last re- maining natural oak forests in Andalucía.

Our Yurts

A yurt is traditionally a dwelling that provides warm and practical housing for Mongolian tribes on the Steppes of Central Asia. These tented structures can be build up or down within a few hours and thus for these migrating tribes an excellent housing option. The yurt can withstand great winds and extreme low temperatures due to the multi-layered cover, thus making it the ideal year-round glamping accommodation.  In the secret garden they offer the ultimate in country side accommodation; living close to nature with all the comforts of a luxurious hotel room.

Each yurt is entered through a solid pine door with windows which open out onto a small secluded terrace – guests can enjoy the gardens in their private space.  Spacious in size, each yurt is 4,5 meters in diameter and furnished with a queen size bed (with luxury cotton linen), bean bags, soft lighting, accessories and a woodstove. In the near future each yurt will have an ensuite bathroom which comes complete with overhead shower.
