Isolated. Casa El Colmenero is located near a pine tree forest, in a quiet place called “Catela”, in Llano Negro, in Villa de Garafía. It has a easy access because it is situated next to the way to Catela which finishes a few metres beyond this house.

This country house is located in a place which is especially beautiful in winter time, when the almond trees come into bloom. El Colmenero has an privileged location, outside city centres, which let you enjoy a unique vision of a starry sky, not for nothing, Garafía’s summits were chosen to install the Observatory Astrophysics of The Roque de Los Muchachos. And if you like to walk, you have a lot of possibilities, because there are a lot of short distance paths in the surroundings and a great variety of landscapes.
