Visitors to the area are enchanted by the stark grandeur of the hills and mountains, the fragrant beauty of the orange and lemon groves and almond trees nestling among the foothills. The tranquillity is only disturbed by the distant chiming of bells of the herds of goats and sheep which, tended by their shepherds, timelessly roam the countryside.
Riding stables, golf, tennis bowling and water sports are all within easy reach and for those quieter moments you can relax at the snack bar by the Castle Arch or enjoy a superb meal with a choice of Spanish or Morrocan restaurants, like Los Pastores in the heart of the village.

"This property and it's surroundings has everything you could ever wish for."
I could wax lyrical about this property for a long time and still not do it justice. I have spent 3 consecutive summers at Torre de Cascada with my family and have already booked again for 2012. The setting is stunning, nestled in mountain community of Sierra Cabrera, the views are breathtaking as your eyes are drawn to the valley below but also the other mountains beyond the valley that seem to stretch for miles. Outside there is a pool and a separate whirlpool/tub/pool which are both perfectly formed and our children, a 10 year old boy and twin 8 year old boys, are always adamant that going in these pools are the highlight of their holiday - they absolutely love them. The house is lovely inside, well laid out, everything works as it should, and the Sky TV facility ensures that Match of the Day and Eastenders aren't missed. However, it's the views that really make this property the gem that it is, not to mention the fact that you are not overlooked and for 99% of the time you could hear a pin drop - it is so peaceful and quiet. Sierra Cabrera as a location is fantastic and its most popular local restaurant, Los Pastores, is sensational - good food in an incredible setting. If you ever spend time at Torre de Cascada I guarantee that you will fall in love with the place as we have - it is truly everything you could wish for and more.
