spend the night in an olive orchard

Only 2 km. from the motorway in a little Spanish village called Minateda in Castilla la Mancha. Ideal for a short break or an overnight stay during your trip. Stay in our B&B ‘Chalet Olivera ‘ or in the studio where there are several rooms available.

Arrive with camper/caravan or tent? No problem! Nice area for walking/hiking/cycling or a bootcamp! Montainbikes to use. Bikers welcome, we offer a closed and covered shed. Ideal for winter motorcross training, there are several nice circuits around. Specific tools to use. Guidance by experienced motorcrosser possible.
On walking distance you can visit prehistoric cavepaintings and Archeological parc El Tolmo is around the corner. The vulcano of Cancarix offers attractive opportunities for a visit, there are two signposted hiking routes.
Do you perhaps want to experience what it’ s like to pick olives (hitting the branches with a stick has a therapeutic effect), you can if you visit us between end of december or in january. We welcome ‘Workaway’ volunteers!
For those who are walking the camino to Santiago de Compostella, route de Azahar that starts in Cartagena, Minateda is located on this ‘ way’, pelgrims welcome.
