Casa de las Caballeras ... your home away from home


We invite you to stay in our cosy villa in the village of Cacin, which is about 2km from Claire‘s farm where the horses live. The villa has four bedrooms, a large kitchen, a first floor lounge and a big garden to relax in. We have a solar-heated pool, plus secluded shady areas where you can retreat to quietly read a book or have a snooze.

The villa is run as a "home away from home".  We have four bedrooms, each sleeping 3 people in single beds.  

 

There is a large fully equipped kitchen, with a cosy wood-fire for winter clinics. Alternatively, during hotter months, there is air-conditioning and an outdoor kitchen, barbecue and paella fire for outdoor cooking. Much more fun!


On the first floor, there is a lovely large lounge, again with a wood-burning stove. This room is deliciously cool in the summer months.

Our Courses include all meals and wine with dinner.

Breakfast & lunch are on a buffet self-service basis, which will include fresh bread, cereal, cheeses, fruit, salads and cold meats etc.

In the evening, we will provide meal ingredients and recipe instructions so that the group can take it in turns to prepare the meal. This is a way of getting to know your fellow students better. It's also a way we can keep costs down for you.

All  meals will be vegetarian, with vegan, gluten and lactose free options. We will eat out at least once in the week, usually the last night of the course.

If you stay for a mini-break, between Courses, it is on a self-catering basis. The Village shop provides the basics and there are good supermarkets and street markets a short drive/bus-ride away.


La Casa - magical in the evening


The Upstairs Lounge, great for Q&A sessions around the fire in colder months



Transfer information

From Malaga Airport:

 

ALSA bus company runs buses from Malaga Airport and Malaga Bus Station:

You can buy tickets on line: it’s best to book in advance to be certain of a seat.

www.alsa.com   -   then search for buses from Malaga to Loja.

There is also an ALSA ticket office directly outside Malaga airport arrivals. (Be aware that not all buses leave from and terminate at the airport – there are more frequent buses from the bus station).

We will meet you at Loja by arrangement. Please confirm your arrival time with us.

 

Our preferred pick up time is 16:00 at Loja and we would ask you to organise your travel accordingly. We can arrange alternative pick up times but - as you may appreciate – courses are busy and staff and transport availability limited.

 

Similarly, for drop off for your return flight from Malaga, the first bus leaves Loja at 8:40 (arriving Malaga Airport at 10:30) so you will need to arrange your flights to suit. Check ALSA website for all journeys – times subject to change.

 

Should you wish to travel from Malaga Airport to Malaga Bus Station, there is a regular shuttle bus that leaves from directly outside arrivals (3 euro). Frequency – approx. 15-20mins -  leaves from a blue stand (autobus aeropuerto).

 

Similarly, at Malaga Bus station the airport bus leaves from blue stand at right angles to main bus stands. There is a left luggage facility at Malaga Bus Station.

 

Transfers from Granada Airport.

Granada is the nearest airport to Cacin and is 40 minutes by car. We can meet your flight.

You should book flights to ensure arrival in Granada between 15:00 and 18:00 on the start date for the course.

We will accommodate alternative pickups by arrangement if this proves difficult.

 

Car Rental

 

Both airports have car rental. We can put you in touch with other course participants - with their permission – so you can co-ordinate car hire share if you wish.
