Welcome in Andalusia
In a wonderful landscape between almonds and olives trees we will be pleased to welcome you in the heart of Andalusia.
The yurt is situated in a totally tranquil spot a few kilometres from the town of Villanueva de Tapia, in an unspoiled part of rural Andalucia. It is an excellent location, being just one hour from Malaga and the Costa del Sol, but also within easy reach of the great Andalucian cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville. Nearby there are many interesting attractions, including the lake of Iznajar, great for fresh water bathing, the National Park of El Torcal with its fascinating rock formations, Archidona and its Ochavada Place, old Norias of Cuevas de San Marcos and Cuevas Bajas, Salt stream exploitation of Fuente Camacho, Sierra de Loja, Sierra de Rute, Sierra the Martilla, GR7, Fuente de Piedra with the flamenco bird waching spot, ...
Ecocampementnomade is an ideal location for walking, riding, bird watching, photography, seeing native flora and fauna and getting to know rural Anadalucia. It is also perfect for just relaxing, winding down to a slower pace of life and having a genuine experience of low impact environmental living.

Chez Véronique at cortijo La Atalaya we have a whole journey of discovery for you.
Your first journey will be, of course, to discover Andalusia during the day for its magnificent architecture, its culture, its natural resources and its sports activities such as hiking, cycling, paragliding, climbing, fishing …
The second journey we offer you when you come back from your day’s excursion will be to experience a nomad home from Mongolia, a yurt.
Yurts have been used by nomad peoples of Central Asia since the fifth century BC. They are still used in countries such as Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Mongolia, and are recognised by UNESCO as an important cultural heritage.
You will sleep in an authentic Mongolian yurt with its typical furniture.
To sleep in a yurt is to cut with our habits. Try the unknown! All the family will enjoy this experience and be transferred into another world.
