Peacefulness, sports, adventure, relaxation, beauty, nature, nice food and good weather. These are some of the concepts that define the area around ‘El Choorro’, a place where visitors can relax, strolling over its hills, or discharge the adrenaline accumulated over the year, by practicing mountain climbing in ‘Desfiladero de los Gaitanes’ which is only one Km away from us, a place where one-off visitors or dangerous sports lovers can submerge themselves in a passionate fragment of the area’s history.

‘Apartments La Garganta’ are located in a building that dates back to the start of this century and was a tile factory. We offer apartments for 2 and up to 8 people to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

With incredible views looking out over the “Caminito del Rey”, our restaurant has two large dining rooms, each with room for 90 people and several terraces that may seat from 15 to 50 people. Home cooking is served in these restaurants, with the dishes our grandmothers used to make, amongst which a special mention should be given to our ‘migas’ (breadcrumbs - a traditional dish made from pork and breadcrumbs), tripe stew, oven-roasted meats (including lamb) and some delicious homemade desserts. All of these dishes may be washed down with a complete selection of wines. At the end of the day there is nothing better than enjoying a peaceful evening where you can have a drink whilst enjoying the nature and tranquility of our surroundings.

During a relaxed visit to the most important sites around, ‘El Caminito del Rey’ deserves a special mention. It is a path that crosses the gorge of ‘El Chorro’ over 100 meters from the ground and it was built at the beginning of the 20th century.

Activities:
-The natural park “Desfiladero de los Gaitanes” surrounding our complex is the ideal place for organizing many multi-adventure activities. Less than a kilometer away, you will find many activities to join in, such as mountain bike riding, mountain climbing, hill walking, abseiling or pony trekking, amongst many other outdoors activities. It is also a perfect place to enjoy the enormous landscapes and magnificent images for photography fans, in an area that is also ideal for walking in a place of outstanding beauty.
