¨Albaricoques Rural¨ is located inside Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park. Our 7 country cottages are a unique place to enjoy a few days of rest and tranquility, with a privileged location in a natural setting among almond and olive trees. Each country cottage has a living room-kitchen , bedroom, bathroom and exterior terrace with garden furniture.The architectural style of our villa found its inspiration in the Catalan architect, Josep Lluis Sert, as reflected in his book ¨ SERT: Mediterranean Architecture.
Our desire was to create a space that would be in harmony with the natural environment, and we therefore adapted our design to showcase the existing almond and olive trees already on the property before our arrival, respecting and nurturing each and every one of them. The cottages reflect a typical Mediterranean style. In our design we have sought simplicity and beauty on one hand, and practicality and comfort on the other. There is a harmonious intermingling of local stone with noble woods, and clay floors with the brilliant whitewashed walls of the buildings. Extreme care was taken with each and every detail in design and decoration.
Another main objective of our project has been compliance with the highest standards in sustainability, natural resources management and recycling, through the use of alternative energy and all that the use of new technology can contribute to the project. We have thus been able to provide the buildings with sanitary hot water and radiant floor heating by using solar energy, and we were also able to design a system that allows us to recycle 100% of an extremely scarce and vital resource, especially in this geographical area, which is water, through a purification process carried out by means of bacteria as opposed to the use of chemicals and through its subsequent use for the watering of trees and plants all around the villa.
