Based at La Posada de San Marcos we were provided with plenty of walking information during our stay. Out in the sunshine we were often walking in Tshirts before the sun disappeared and hence it got a lot cooler. However...

We stayed for 3 nights at Posada de San Marco recently. We were travelling in Andalucia and this was one of two country stays. Our goals were to experience the Andalucian countryside and to do some medium-level walking. Both goals were achieved along with many other wonderful experiences. Lucy and Angel are brilliant hosts- they go way beyond the call...

We spent 4 nights over New Year at this casa rural in the pretty village of Alájar. The hotel only has 6 rooms, which are fairly basic but comfortable. Most have access to a south-facing terrace with views over the garden and pool, though this remained unused in December! Our hosts, Angel, Lucy and daughter Sophia extended a very warm...

Booked into Posada st Marcos for a quiet , relaxing New Years break. What a find. Only 6 bedrooms, and set in a very pretty village which had several typical Spanish restaurants, little shops, and the most amazing countryside for walking. Our hosts were exceedingly kind, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Lucy is a trained chef and...

Hola Annette C, Thank you for choosing us and La Posada de San Marcos to bring in the New Year! Cava and grapes have been a tradition for the well off in Spain since the 19th century although aparently due to an excessive crop in Alicante in 1909 it expanded to the masses!

The high standards of hospitality and comfort are maintained. La Posada de San Marcos continues to be our favourite place in Spain to go to sleep well, eat well, walk and relax. On the nights when Lucy is not cooking we always enjoy Las Palomitas.

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
