El Balcon del Abra offers unique landscapes, superb comfort, and the charm of a small posada with only eight rooms.

The posada El Balcón del Abra is located in a well-kept park with beautiful trees and tall palms. Deck chairs, that can be placed according to taste, forming small intimate islands for resting and enjoying the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and hills.

In January 2010, a large "biotop" ecological pool was built offering the possibility of swimming in a totally natural environment. In the park, there are different possibilities for sitting at tables of different sizes, where you can have lunch or snack in a more intimate setting.

A covered barbecue area with oven offers multiple possibilities for cooking outdoors. In front of the barbecue, there is a long gallery, with jasmine-covered columns leaving a unique perfume in flowering season. A huge table with long benches allows a large group of people to enjoy great food during most months of the year. Also at the entrance there are two outdoor galleries with large columns, covered with climbing roses.

In the back of the main building, a convenient staircase leads to a balcony that offers unique panoramic views.

Behind the barbecue area, there is a large vegetable garden and three small greenhouses. The vast majority of the products for the posada's kitchen are organically produced there and harvested in season, making them as fresh as can be.

In the space between kitchen and dining room there is a round table for separate meals (maximum of six people). Moreover - as already mentioned - you can eat in an intimate setting anywhere in the park. The posada is happy to adjust to the wishes of their customers to provide you with a service that offers maximum comfort. The ample spaces of the main house and the park are the ideal setting to respect the privacy of guests in a warm and select atmosphere. Not forgetting to mention the extensive cellar of fine wines and spirits.

The comfortable lounge with its eye-catching fireplace, invites to you to relax, watch a large satellite TV, enjoy music, or engage in long conversations. The corner with the panoramic window, invites you to contemplate the landscape, read, or share moments that you might remember forever.
