Our family of four (my wife and two teenage boys) hiked around the Sierra De Aracena region at the end of March 2014. Posada San Marco was one our favorite places that we stayed. The owner's Lucy and Angel really made our stay with them a wonderful experience. Make sure to ask Angel to crave the local ham for your... More

We really loved staying at La Posada de San Marcos. Lucy and Angel are wonderful hosts, and have built up an exceptional hotel which manages to be classy in a laid-back way, welcoming in an unobtrusive way, and delightfully comfortable. If you stay here you can be sure that you will contribute to leaving a soft tourist footprint, as the... More

Sorry for belated review! Visited Lucy and Angel in October and had a wonderful time! The environment was relaxing, warm and friendly. The room was perfect for us with patio doors opening on to a patio, the gardens and swimming pool beyond. Lucy and Angel made us warmly welcome. We ate in the hotel in the evening and I loved...

This is a wonderful place to stay. It is a lovely house in an attractive town with traditional whitewashed houses in narrow streets in a non-touristy area. (Bringing a large car is definitely something to avoid if you possibly can!) The rooms are lovely, comfortable, well-equipped and very quiet. All look over the terrace and the swimming pool with no... More

lovely place to stay for walking in the Sierra De Aracena. Hosts Lucy and Angel run a first class establishment at the Posada de San Marcos and the area is outstanding for relaxing, walking and birdwatching.

We have been meaning to return to Alajar for a year or 2 and now that the new hotel is open we wanted to see Lucy and Angel's eco accomodation and visit at a different time of year - we were not disappointed. The new rooms all open out onto the lovely outdoor spaces with terraces and gardens either directly... More

We have just spent a wonderful few days celebrating New Year in Alajar. Lucy and Angel welcomed us into their charming, Eco-friendly hotel as if we were family! We thoroughly enjoyed the walks in beautiful countryside, the photo slide shows entertaining us at breakfast and in the evening. Angel is very knowledge able about the local culture and gastronomy and... More

La Posada de San Marcos is a pleasant place to stay in a beautiful area. We enjoyed the quiet village setting after spending time in the cities. We did two day-hikes that were interesting and enjoyable. The proprietors were interesting and friendly, and even provided us with a ride into Seville when we continued our trip. Breakfast was plentiful and... More

Staying with Angel and Lucy was a real treat. Lucy is a great cook, dinner is served with a sunset view and Angel is very passionate and knowledgeable about the area – he can speak about everything from olive oil and Iberian ham to fantastic little restaurants in nearby villages and the best tracks for hiking or running in the...

Enjoy a wonderful stay in a special part of the Natural Park Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche at Las Posadas in Alájar providing low impact, environmentally friendly accommodation within a natural park along with invaluable help and advice from your hosts Lucy and Ángel. At La Posada de San Marcos the only sound you will hear is the breeze in the cork oak trees, the babbling of the stream, birdsong and crickets. The view towards the oak clad hill behind us or towards the village and the Peña beyond provide the perfect backdrop from your room terrace or the gardens. The perfect opportunity to experience an environmentally friendly, energy efficient hotel with a superior level of accommodation and disabled access. Relax in our garden and if it gets too warm plunge into our 12 metre pool to cool off or take some exercise.Or alternatively you can stay at our sister hotel La Posada de Alájar, a renovated inn dating from the 18th Century where you are surrounded by the history of its walls and chestnut beamed ceilings. Centrally located by the village square with its restaurants, bars and shops everything is close to hand. Cosy rooms, cheerfully decorated, ensure an enjoyable and comfortable holiday. ... more   less
