Object Description

Finca Serrato enjoys a superb location in the Montes de Málaga, 3 miles from the old connecting road between Málaga and Colmenar, 8 miles from Colmenar.  Serrato looks out over the slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains. On the Serrato estate you will find a traditional Spanish ‘cortijo’ (cottage) which is currently being rebuilt as a Hostal Rural. Apart from several B&B rooms there is a comfortable apartment separate from the main building. Serrato is the place for a good meal, tapas or barbeque.
The cortigo is set in 500 acres of land,  partly covered with olive, almond and fig-trees and surrounded by cactuses, cork-oaks and a wide variety of wild flowers.
A stay at Serrato for a couple of days or perhaps even longer is an exceptional experience for people who like to get off the beaten track to enjoy the beauty of nature, serenity and, at the same time, feel truly in the heart of one of the most beautiful parts of Andalusia.  On the other hand the location serves as an ideal base for visiting cities such as Malaga and Granada and on the way down you will even catch sight of the Mediterranean.
The cane room you will find on the first floor, arriving via wonderful stone stairs and a unique old wooden door. Its cane ceiling and authentic tiled floor create a pleasant atmosphere. There is a double bed (2 metres) and the Cane Room has its own bathroom with shower and toilet. Authentic details have been retained as far as possible. For some more pictures please look at the photo gallery.
The Almacen Room, a room that can be separated from the apartment, has just been finished but is already our pride! Almacen stands for storage as this room used to be the storing place for the almond and olive harvest.  In the room 2 single beds which, on request, can easily be put together. The Almacen room features a spacious bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. For more pictures please look at the photo gallery.
The Little Grape House is the next room that soon will have its private bathroom. For the time being, as some of the other rooms, the little grape house can be used for an overnight stay, sharing shower and toilet.  It is also available as an additional room for children.  For this room we have special prices on request.
Appartement - At Serrato there is a detached apartment, separate from the main building. It has been named Almacen (storage), since in former days it was used as a storageroom for almonds and olives. In the apartment you will find all the necessary furnishing in kitchen and living-room, e.g. dinner table + 4 chairs, sofa, satellite television with dvd, and stereo. The comfortable bathroom with shower, toilet and wide sink is linked to a nice bedroom. The apartment has its own terrace where you can enjoy breakfast in the morning sun. The kitchen is supplied with standard devices and kitchen equipment. Of course you can always make use of our breakfast service (6 euro p.p. per day) or other meals served at Serrato.
