The Hostel lies about 500 meters from Millares, a municipality in the interior of Valencia located in the Cretaceous Massif of Caroig, east of the Muela de Cortes and on the banks of the Júcar River. Located in the middle of nature, it is ideal for practicing mountain sports, discovering a wonderful landscape, and a cultural legacy that goes from prehistory to the present day.
It occupies the building of an old Civil Guard barracks and although renovated, it retains its original layout with two buildings and a large porch that surrounds a grand interior terrace. It has a total of 11 rooms, distributed between double beds, or with bunk beds for four, six, or eight people. All rooms have an interior bathroom, heating, sheets, and towels. The fenced outdoor enclosure includes a beautiful pine forest, garden area, rest area, an area designated for children’s games, and parking. In the Bar-restaurant you will be able to taste homemade cuisine, prepared at the moment and with ecological products. Our company policy is very sensitive to the rural environment and its sustainable development, for that reason our suppliers are primarily the businesses of Millares which allows us to contribute as much as possible to the local economic development.
We organize open cultural activities every month such as art exhibitions, plays, performances, literary readings, open-air cinemas in super 8, etc. These workshops or events have traditional and historical or gastronomic content.
We also manage tourist packages for sports activities; canyoning, climbing, rock climbing, caving, hiking, etc., in collaboration with active tourism companies in the area, with all the means and professional skills to carry them out.
The natural environment of Millares is splendid and practically unknown. It has multiple trails that run through natural spaces, dotted with fountains, mills, castles, and privileged viewpoints. There are routes for running, cycling, or simply walking with nature and waterfalls where you can practice canyoning or climbing. There is also a collection of cave paintings, listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO and a site of dinosaur ichnites which are most representative of the Valencian Community on the Rambla del Tambuc, with more than 400 footprints. The place of La Cueva Donas, or de les Dones, is one of the best known caves since ancient times and which was described by Cavanilles in 1795, in his work “Observacions sobre el reyno de València” that is also open to explore.
