Authentic farmhouse Spanish
The Bed and Breakfast is in a rural area of 70 hectares of nature and olive trees. Originally it was built in the style of an authentic Spanish farmhouse with stables for the horses. The farm still breathes the atmosphere of a real Spanish ¨cortijo¨ with antique furnishings and warm Spanish colours. There are still horses on the terrain as well as goats and sheep. And sometimes you’ll find peacocks or wild boars in the garden.
The green oasis Farmhouse
The huge gardens of the Bed and Breakfast are quite unique in southern Spain. It is not a coincidence that the meaning of Maravilla Verde is ¨the green oasis¨ (roughly translated). With so many grassy terraces, tropical trees, colourful flowers and romantic spots, there is enough space for everyone to relax. Many species of butterflies, birds and dragonflies are also attracted to this idyllic place. You can also enjoy the serenity of the gardens during a relaxing massage.
The pool, located at the highest part of the garden, is the best place to relax with cold drinks at hand and always a pleasant breeze. On hot summer days there is plenty of shade under the ancient oak trees. Simply the best spot to be in Andalucia!
In the spacious swimming pool you can easily swim a few laps. Around the pool are several seats and sun beds, and for that all-important siesta we even have a hammock for you.
There is always plenty to do for children. They will love the pool and the floating inflatable toys. Badminton rackets, table tennis, a football table and a trampoline are also all present.
There are a total of 8 rooms, including 3 family accommodations (for 4 or 5 people).
All rooms breathe that wonderful Spanish atmosphere and each has its own theme. Some with a life-size artistic mural from Spanish folklore.

A feeling of home
We try to give everyone a feeling of home, through a warm personal welcome. There’s a Dutch saying, which roughly translates to: “You don’t HAVE to do it, anything goes.”, which has high priority at our B&B.
From the 1st of April until the beginning of November, you can cool off in the pool. The water is heated by the sun.
