MEET OUR HISTORY

As it is said, beginnings were not ever easy…

THIS IS HOW EVERYTHING STARTED AT HOTEL RURAL LAS CALAS

A Trip Through Time

We have searched, dusted off albums and selected a series of photos that show the restoration of how this large house has become into the hotel it is nowadays.

It all started in 1998...

When Magüi Carratalá bought a large house originally from the year 1800, she decided to restore it and, two years later, is just when it started to operate as a hotel.

Before becoming a hotel, this large house belonged to different families who usually still visit us for old time's sake.

A BUILDING THAT IMPRESSED FROM THE BEGINNING
WITH A GREAT HISTORY TO WRITE
"In Las Calas we create spaces with a unique charm and an exclusive design where each detail has been pampered to invite you to stay here and make you feel like home"

OUR PHYLOSOPHY

“We are keeping up with the "Slow Travel" movement, travelling quiet and slowly. This is the aim that we want to share with our customers"
Las Calas Team


We are committed to the slow-food and eco-slow movement.

Own garden


In our garden you will find fruit trees or herbal plants such as pear tree, lemon tree, quince tree, pepper tree, orange tree and mulberry tree. We also grow chard, rosemary, parsley and mint. Everything we get from the garden is used in the food we serve. So, that is why our hotel food is so delicious.

Slow food


We advocate a pleasurable, mindful and slow food, enjoying everything we eat in a calm and peaceful way, avoiding the rush we are subjected daily.

Eco slow


And, as is to be expected, in order to offer our customers quality food, we get our food from our own garden or from local farmers, since wherever possible we grow them organically and ecologically.

The landlady of the hotel

María Luisa or Magüi is how all of us call her. She is responsible for the love that customers and workers feel about Las Calas place. This Hotel would not be the hotel it is nowadays without her.

She has dedicated most of her life to work and live in the hotel. Hard-working, with great effort, dedication and sacrifice, she has been always innovating, being on the go, changing the decoration of the rooms in order to improve the day-to-day of the customer.

Hold on! Although she is not living here right now; she has still the same motivation.

Every pet is welcome in this hotel thanks to her and her love for animals.

As interesting information it is important to say that our dinner menus are recipes made by her carefully and lovingly, because she is an excellent chef.
