Hike, stay and relax in the Sierra de Espadán for 3 days; a protected nature reserve with enchanting forests full of cork oaks, bubbling brooks and red ravines . You can sleep and eat at **** Ecohotel Mar de Fulles, an (almost) energy-neutral hotel / restaurant with yoga facilities.

Mar de Fulles is a unique, sustainable project. Due to the orientation of the building in relation to the sun, air conditioning or heating is not required (almost) all year round. All electricity is generated and stored on site. The hotel rooms do not have a TV, but a panoramic window with a view of the mountains. There is a private water source and water purification.

Ingredients for the kitchen come from your own garden or from the neighborhood. Water, ecological wine and beer are bottled especially for the hotel. And in the huge park surrounding the hotel are hives for delicious organic honey. And you can compensate for your own CO2 by planting a tree. The oldest tree in the park is a monumental cork oak of 650 years old!

And in the stream the kingfisher feels like a fish in the water.

Sierra de Espadán Natural Park

Serpentine cork and rugged ravines

Sierra de Espadán Natural Park takes its name from the high, pointed mountains of red sandstone. This rock is porous and retains water. That is why you will find many springs and streams in the area. Mixing sun, mineral-rich soil and humidity provides an enormous biodiversity.

That's why the Sierra de Espadán is also called 'the Mediterranean Jungle'. A characteristic tree is the cork oak , with a jagged trunk and wonderful branches. During the walk, you will undoubtedly encounter beautiful reptiles and birds of prey. Perhaps the most fascinating is the short-toed eagle, which with its white belly and enormous wings contrasts sharply with the Mediterranean blue sky.

In fact, you don't need a car for this hiking package of a few days, because you can walk straight into nature from the hotel.

Hiking trails and activities

Lagoons and Moorish castles

One of the walking routes goes to La Dehesa, a protected nature reserve with a small lagoon. We also find millstones along the way, which were formerly carved out of the rocks in this place. The area is full of olive and almond trees, which bloom profusely in February.

A challenging route - for experienced hikers - goes to the ruins of the 'Castillo de Castro'. This castle is located on top of a steep rock, which protrudes as an extra tower above the surroundings.

An easy route goes to the caves of San Josep, near the town of Vall d'Uixo. Here is the longest navigable underground river in Europe, and you can take a boat trip there.

Hotel Mar de Fulles has 2 yoga areas.

And the huge front garden has all kinds of seats and hammocks.

The pool is also open from May to October. The water flows seamlessly into the décor of mountains in the background.

And as an extra activity you can also join a beekeeper.

We can also provide bicycles, e-bikes or mountain bikes. This will bring dozens of walking or cycling routes within your reach.
