/ Accommodation in El Chorro! Tips?
Going to El Chorro in January with 3 friends and was wondering if anyone could give us some advice on where to stay. Was thinking a small cottage or something with a kitchen. Anyone stayed at a place they liked that is not advertised on the net. Price around 50-60€/night. We will not have a car so should pretty easy to get to and from.
cannot beat the olive branch! Definately worth a look
They'll be plenty choice on here within that price range.
Try Albergue Campsite in El Chorro. They have some chalets, in September the price was about 300 euro/week for 4 people. They have heating, cooking and hot shower/bath. Nearest ElC crag is 15 mins walk, and nearest bar is 2 mins walk. If you can't find a link let me know and I will sort it for you.
Doss in the woods maybe?
Olive Branch. As well as camping and private rooms (sharing a communal kitchen) they have a separate chalet that has 2 x 2 person bunk rooms you could take as a 4 with a kitchen. Its only shared with another room with 6 bunks. Very reasonable, extremely helpful and friendly. Have done exactly this as a party of 4 several times and you won't find better value / friendlier hosts than Mel and Gary.
(can't remember which cottage) and would recommend it. About 5 mins up the hill from the village(?)centre. The owners are very helpful and accommodating
Another vote for olive branch. Three kitchens on pe for bunk house one for en suite rooms and one for campers
Great price awesome owners.
They do breakfast but loads of fridges/ovens etc to do your own cooking.
Need to book a visit soon
Thanks for all tips!
Seems The Olive Branch is the go.
I've used these people in the past. Stayed at Casa Eryl in Ardales.
Excellent people, property & location for the crags.
I've just got back from El Chorro
I tried to book at the olive tree but got a message from mel there saying that
"we are fully booked in our rooms and dorm for the whole of December up until the 18th Jan 2014."
I stayed in Ardales in the ended, in a apartment called Apartamentos Ardales cost £50 for a large apartment..
It was very quiet and about a 20minute drive to el chorro.
On the plus side it's only five minutes from turon that I fully recommend.
This place also looked good
