As the name implies, Rural Hotel Las Calas is a small hotel with just 9 bedrooms in the middle of nowhere. Whether this is a good thing depends on the individual guest!
The rooms are large and comfortable; either in the main building, or among the gardens - which are beautifully tended. The staff were consistently excellent, and the food was homely and pleasant.
With few guests to support more staff, there is no staffed bar, although there are communal areas where you can enjoy sundowners if you buy drinks elsewhere.
Pros: Apart from the sound of local dogs barking, goats bleating, and birds singing, there is complete silence. It is completely peaceful and serene.
Cons: Given the remote location, wifi is slow, and quickly overwhelmed when a couple of guests try to use it simultaneously.
Location: The nearest town (San Mateo) is a 25-min walk downhill - and a EUR6 cab-ride back if you have enjoyed a meal at one of the many eateries there.
