Guaro is a very traditional Spanish white village and is a 5 minute drive from the property. In Guaro you will find a selection of bars offering breakfast, coffee, traditional Spanish cuisine, tapas or even pizza.
The BBQ bar is great for large pieces of fresh meat and the most delicious prawns at really inexpensive prices. There are two banks, a chemist, butcher, bakers and a few small supermarkets selling all you could need.
In September, the village plays host to the incredible Moorish festival of Luna Mora, where the entire village is lit by candlelight – it really is a sight to behold. Come and stay and enjoy the ambience as well as the finest food and drinks and a multitude of artisan stalls and shops selling unique jewellery, clothing and traditional artefacts.
Monda is another very traditional Spanish white village and is just 3 minutes’ drive from La Casita. It too has a small selection of shops, bars, restaurants, chemist and bank. Bar La Jaula and Bar Luna do great breakfasts and offer light meals. Just behind Bar Luna and the old washing house is the bar/restaurant El Balcon de la Jaula and they serve excellent food. Behind the main square and fountain you will find Restaurant Los Carboneros which serves a great menu del dia, and the portions are massive. They also do great pizzas and tapas. Sometimes though, you may need to share it with the “safari-tour” company bringing tourists up from the coast for lunch.
