According to British holidaymakers, Spain is the best value travel destination in the world. It topped the league table, with 92 per cent saying it offered ‘good value.’ Brits love the Spanish mainland the best. *
Our guests consider Casa Bella Teepees to be good 'value for money' (9.6 / 10, from 41 recent guest reviews). **
If you’re considering a short break or holiday here in Spain (if you live in Spain or the UK), you don’t have to spend a fortune if you come and stay with us.
For those that like to self-cater we provide everything you need to cook meals and snacks.
For those who would rather just come and put their feet up, we can provide a good value breakfast basket and recommend many good local restaurants that cater for all tastes at unbelievable prices.
Firstly, our guests can’t believe that you get ‘free’ tapa accompanying every cold drink in our neighbourhood! It’s a tradition here and something we LOVE! You’ll love it too!
We have two restaurants right on the lake, both with spectacular views Restaurante El Nautico and Restaurante Los Baños. During the week the Restaurante Los Baños offer a menu del dia for as little at 10 €. Eating from either of their main menus is not expensive either.
In our village of Zujar, guests can visit one of our favourite eating and drinking places, Gastrobar La Almazara. We always recommend their meat dishes which are superb and great value for money and the black garlic cod dish is wonderful. They always serve the best tapas, which are of course, FREE with every cold drink.
There’s a selection of other restaurants too:
Pizzeria Jabalcon - This is our favourite pizza place, we've eaten pizza all over and Paco's hand made base is right up there with the best. Pizza takeout or eat in, from 7.50 €. Sit and have a beer while you wait and enjoy your tapa.
El Boliche del Nene
Brand new bar in Plaza Mayor, lovely atmosphere, cool music, great beer with free tapa and a fabulous menu offering meat and fish dishes. Try the beef burger for 6.50 €. We're hoping that they can extend their seating area into the recently refurbished square, there should be plenty of free events held in the plaza during the summer.
Cost effective activities near us include water sports on the lake and horse riding near Baza, besides the beautiful nature spots we recommend which are of course free of charge.
Lake Negratin (dam end)
Paddle board 10 € per hour
Kayak 10 € per hour
(Sometimes in the not so busy periods they offer 2 hours for the price of 1, bargain!!)
The lovely folk Yeguada Y Granja Escuels stables offer horse riding experiences for all ages and abilities. Recently a young couple staying with us had a relaxed full moon night ride at 10pm for an hour at 20 € each along the Baza basin…they absolutely loved it!
Massage at Casa Bella Teepees with Josie
Josie will come and give you a 1 hour relaxation massage for 35 euros per person near your teepee or under our big tree. Many customers comment it’s the best massage they’ve ever had. Josie has an interesting story to tell which makes it all the more enjoyable.

FREE places to visit and picnic
Most loved place by our guests, the Enchanted fig forest & river.
This is our favourite picnic spot especially on a hot day. There’s a lovely picnic area beneath the tall trees as well as by the side of the river. You’ll find a walkway over the streams and small cascades that go right through a fig forest.
Another magical spot is the Guazalamanco stream with small cascades, crystal clear pools and beautiful waterfalls. An enchanting paradise in which to admire the green glades, tall pine trees and plant life.
We have dates available throughout the summer 2023 season, so if you want a destination where you get good value for money…. Book now!
