We are situated in one of the oldest streets in this village of 2000 inhabitants, some 150 metres from the main square where you will find many of the services which you might require during your visit. The hotel is the result of the joining together of various small, but fine houses from the 19th century. Although renovated on various occasions the basic structure and form is the same.
Our hotel has a large comfortable lounge with fireplace and a restaurant with both indoor and outside seating. The bedrooms are arranged around the patios, simply decorated and feature our local Grazalema blankets. A stay in Casa de Las Piedras will allow you to enjoy the tranquillity and ambience of our family run hotel, chatting al fresco on one of our patios, or by the warmth of the fire. You may also wish to sample some of our local foods prepared freshly each day in our restaurant.
Grazalema is at 830 metres above sea level at the heart of the ´Natural Park´ that bears its name. We enjoy a good climate and plenty of fresh air and many people suffering from respiratory illnesses benefit from a stay here. The village is the wettest in Spain, (not in terms of number of rainy day, but for the quantity). It can snow in winter and the temperature can drop to below 10C. In summer temperatures reach 30C, but fresh at night.
In the village itself there is much of interest; the Roman fountain, churches, textile factory and museum, the squares and viewpoints, and a little outside; the Roman road, El Calvario church, the Christ, El Boyer pass etc. If you want to enjoy all sorts of activities, such as: hiking, climbing, abseiling and horse-riding, we have it all in our park and it will bring you closer to the park and our wonderful flora and fauna. There are also routes of particular interest to ornithologists and archaeologists and for visiting surrounding villages by car, motorbike, or bicycle. It is also ideally situated for exploring the surrounding area as well as the cities of Cadiz, Seville, Jerez and Malaga.
