Casa Magel B&B, September – November special: Complimentary bubbly on arrival. 2 nights B&B choice of continental or English breakfast. 1 night 3-course meal with wine for 2 sharing a double room. 100€. Maybe possible to get tickets for Caminito Del Rey El Chorro if you book early. This is a good time to visit the wolf park 15 mins away as the wolves are more visible as the weather cools and they do full moon howling at night. Pop into Convento Magdalena next door and soak up the peaceful atmosphere with a nice glass of wine. Many nice walks all around, our little Roman town is a 15-minute walk away, with a very nice museum, good tapas bars. So much to do and see and then relax by the pool while our chef cooks you a delicious meal. We have a limited honesty bar or bring your own drinks. Full kitchen facilities for guest use. Terrace & BBQ. Pretty Gardens, lovely pool, yummy food, great hosts, fantastic views. Who could ask for anything more for 100€ for 2?
