Grandpa´s holiday cottages are located in Sierra del Segura, in Albacete province, between the plains of La Mancha and Murcia orchard. This fascinating landscape is a perfect place for relaxing but also to enjoy  hiking or visiting some of the historical and artistic treasures of this area, like Nerpio cave paintings, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, or Yeste castle.

In the riverbed of Segura, we show up, because of their beauty, Fuensanta reservoir in Yeste and the Cenajo in the border with the region of Murcia.

The main tributary of the Segura is the Mundo river. His source, that forms an impressive waterfall in Riópar, is one of the most beautiful landscape of this area.

We recommend you:

  • A stroll along the paths of the estate, visiting the arqueological site from the Muslim period.
  • A nice walk to the Segura river, located only 45 minutes from the houses. You will have the chance to take beautiful pictures in your way there.
