Altiplano Tipis

Altiplano Tipis overlooks the picturesque mountains and forests of the stunning valley of the Rio de Baza Guests can experience traditional tipi living in one of our three beautifully crafted and fully equipped tipis and enjoy an outdoor camping experience with a dash of luxury.

Each tipi has a double luxury camp bed (an alternative of two single camp beds is also possible) with feather duvet and a private shower room within the cave complex complete with towels. Or alternatively, experience living in a cave dwelling, complete with ensuite shower room, veranda and a woodburner for the chilly winter evenings. Living within an earth structure keeps the rooms at an agreeable temperature all year round so there is no need for air conditioning.

Water is heated using a solar powered system, reducing the need for conventional fuels and only biodegradable products can be used on the site as the wastewater is then used to water the trees and flowers in the courtyard conserving precious supplies of water.

Organic meat, eggs and other local and organic products can be bought on site. Guests can make their own meals using the outside kitchen facilities or BBQ. They also offer a solar powered oven. They provide advice on activities in the area which allow guests to appreciate the beautiful countryside of the surrounding area known as the Lake District of Spain. Or for something less energetic, guests can simply relax with a good book or take a dip in the freshwater pool.
