A first class, adult couples only, all inclusive retreat set in a beautiful part of inland Spain where you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a different world from the Costas but still less than an hour away if you want to hit the beach.
It sits high on a hillside surrounded by almond and olive groves and pines stretching up into the natural park behind us, overlooking the town below. It has few neighbours and is not overlooked, although you can see for miles from the terrace. The house is built on the footprint of an old ruined Finca and sits against the hillside, making the inside cool even when the temperatures outside hit the high 30s. Often you will see majestic Golden Eagles or Griffon Vultures drifting on the wind currents overhead, flocks of colourful European Bee Eaters swirling noisily and swallows at dusk dive-bombing the pool for a drink. We also have geckos and sometimes praying mantis – who (the females that is) are only dangerous to the males…! A lovely setting for your well-earned break.
The main attraction at Xanadu has to be the spectacular infinity pool. 10m x 5m with a long, curved infinity edge overlooking the almond and olive groves and the town below and with a view stretching to the hills and fields beyond, a real Wow! At night it’s even better when its lights show off just how spectacular the setting is. The salt water is softer than chlorine and kinder to the skin. The terrace has luxury sun loungers for you to spend your days relaxing on. The hot tub ensures that it’s not only during the day you can enjoy the water. There really is nothing like relaxing in warm bubbles under the stars…while drinking a glass or two of chilled bubbles!
Inside you will find a cool lounge. Feel free to help yourself to a book from the well-stocked bookcase and curl up in a chair if you need a break from the heat. Free WiFi is available everywhere.
We can arrange massages, manicures/pedicures etc. even tattooing by Clara, a local tattoo artist with a background in fine art. Let us know in advance if you are interested in any of these and we will provide further details.
If you feel a need to be more energetic, there are 2 mountain bikes. Be warned, we are quite a long way uphill from the town, although if you find yourselves at the bottom we can always come and pick you up to save you from having to climb the hill again! There is also a quad bike available for the less energetic. There are also some lovely walking trails in the area, although not necessarily naturist there is a good chance you will not see a soul.
We have 4 rooms at Xanadu which all have their own bath or shower rooms and are tastefully furnished with your comfort in mind. One room has a superking-sized bed and opens onto the pool terrace. Two others have kingsized beds and there is one double which all overlook the pool. All are equipped with premium quality linen, soft towels and toiletries and sun cream is also available free of charge. Travel light with hand luggage only and free yourself from extortionate costs and long queues at the airport! Pool towels are also provided.
For bookings from parties of friends who want to book the whole property we can accommodate a maximum of 12 people. In this case we would be flexible about the board basis – everything from self-catering to fully all-inclusive. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
We welcome guests from mid-June – early September. The cost is 200 euros per couple per night. There is a minimum 3 night stay and discounts available for bookings of 10 days or more.
Food & Drink
Your stay at Xanadu is all-inclusive and by that we mean for you to never be hungry or thirsty.
A leisurely breakfast of fruit juice, fruit, yoghurts, fresh bread, pastries, eggs etc. can be had at any time until noon. Just help yourself. A light lunch - usually salads, cold meats, quiches etc. is served on the terrace at around 2.30 and gives guests the chance to sit and chat with each other in the shade for a while before returning to their loungers for another session of relaxation.
Food is all important on holiday and every day is a dinner
party at Xanadu. Canapes and cocktails on the terrace from 8.00 followed by dinner at 9.00, accompanied by good quality Spanish wines. A chance to get to know each other better and enjoy spending time with like-minded people.
The bar at Xanadu is always open…and well stocked with premium spirits and good quality local wines, cava and beer. Soft drinks, mixers and bottled water are also available and there is also a water cooler with fresh spring water from Velez Blanco, just up the hill from us – it doesn’t get any better than that!
