The Cantueso complex is a small cluster of 10 one and two bedroom self-catering cottages able to accommodate from one to five people. There is also a spacious apartment sleeping up to seven and can be seen here. The clever site layout of the cottages has plenty of quiet corners and makes them equally attractive to couples or families. Each has a secure self-contained terrace with BBQ and is surrounded by beautiful gardens with access to the large 'soft-water' swimming pool. The views are a mix of lake and mountains and can be seen live on our webcam.
Precautions and procedures for a safe holidayRead more >>
At Cantueso we are taking even more steps than usual to ensure our guests are safe and have instituted new procedures regarding all aspects of a visit.
We are indeed fortunate in that Cantueso is situated over a kilometre from the nearest village and is isolated by beautiful countryside. Our site layout means that individual cottages are well spaced and each one has its own fenced and gated terrace. This means that you are able to be as private and secure as at home, whilst enjoying pure mountain air.
As well as complying with Spanish government Covid 19 regulations, we have also reviewed our procedures and aim to strengthen our viral security by enhanced cleaning and reducing contact points to a minimum.
Further information regarding our plans to deal with Covid 19 can be seen here on our blog:
Our cottages are built in traditional Andalusian style with wooden ceilings and furnishingsRead more >>
Heating and cooling is either electric or using the wood-burning stove in the sitting room. Most bathrooms have a bath with shower.
The kitchen is open-plan and equipped with all the usual utensils and tableware. There is also a gas hob and microwave oven (gas is provided free). All bed linen and towels are provided and changed weekly.
There is a safe for your valuables and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Heating & Cooling: All cottages have reverse-cycle air conditioning, which gives cooling in summer and heating in winter. Latest technology makes them very economical to use. Meter cards are used, which means that you only pay for the electricity used.
Television: A television, radio and DVD player are provided in all cottages.
12 x 6 Metre Pool: Our pool is securely fenced with self-closing gates, complying with the latest European standards. Parents may appreciate that we have reduced the depth at the shallow end to half a metre and now have easy access steps for children. To save on your luggage weight we hire pool towels for a small charge.
The pool uses a salt water generator and although the salt is hardly noticeable, it creates a 'soft' water effect similar to pure rainwater, which is very nice to bathe in. It also means that a minimum of chemicals have to be added to the pool.
Laundry Room: A washing machine, iron and ironing board are available in the laundry room.
For families: Many items such as cots, highchairs, stair gates, baby alarms and buggies are also available. Full details are on our family page.
Wi-Fi Hot Spot: We provide free Wi-Fi access in all cottages and on the restaurant terrace.
Celebrate: For that special occasion or if there is a group of friends you may book several cottages with special rates.
Spanish Cuisine: One of the most praised things about our complex is the on-site restaurantRead more >>
It means that when you don’t feel like cooking you can order a takeaway meal or relax in the restaurant and bar. The cuisine is Spanish/Mediterranean, and all home-cooked by our professional team, using local seasonal ingredients. Please see our restaurant pages. We cater for children with their own menu and freshly cooked small portions. Our chefs are experienced in dealing with most food allergies and will modify dishes or cook to order.
We can also provide a “survival pack” should your flight be arriving after the shops are closed and to help you avoid carrying heavy items.
Families of all ages are catered for with on-site mini golf, table tennis, boules, darts, table football, swings, slide, see-saw, and trampolineRead more >>
There is also a football and games area, as well as special provision for those with babies. See our family page.
All the usual facilities such as shops, supermarkets, chemist, doctors, dentist, bars and restaurants are available one and a half kilometres away in Periana. All around Cantueso there are many cycle rides and picturesque walks, for which we can provide walking routes, and just 20 minutes away there are larger towns and many beaches. Please also see Things to Do.
Further Information: In each cottage there is a detailed guide to the Cantueso complex and surrounding villages. And you may like to see our brochure here.
