  • Summer Enquiries for Winter 2017-18

    The vast majority of self-catering apartments don´t release their rates or accept bookings until November for the upcoming season. Many of the hotels do not release rates until the Autumn either. As such, there are just a few options we can give you now such as the two 4 star Melia hotels and the 3 star GHM Monachil. As we are "out of season" our response rate will be much slower as a result of this. From mid-June onwards, we intend to respond to any enquiries on a weekly basis. Most accommodation options nowadays offer a "flexible" tariff which allows future modifications and/or cancelations. We can generally compete very well with alternative options found elsewhere and so would urge you to consider this so that when more options open themselves up to us you may well be able to take advantage of a better deal later in the autumn.

hoyamoraMany shops hire out toboggans/bum-boards which, whilst not allowed on the pistes for obvious safety reasons, can be taken to several areas at the village level.

One of these areas is off from the Mirlo Blanco recreation zone along the track that leads away from it on the mountainside.

At the top of the village is another area called "Hoya de la Mora" which has a wide expanse available for tobogganing. There are rental huts and coffee stops here too.
