The Green Mountain Yurt is a carefully crafted dwelling based on a Mongolian style of tent, but adapted for the climate of southern Spain and for those who wish to enjoy a glamping and camping holiday in comfort.  Made by a local company based in Cadiar, The Yurt Workshop, our yurt is constructed from Spanish chestnut wood made into a strong frame and fitted with a fire retardant canvas cover and a thick wool felt lining to keep it warm when it is cool outside and to keep it cool inside when the sun is shining.
Two large double glazed windows along with front door and transparent sky light ensure that the interior is light and airy, whilst a powerful' Jotul' log burning stove means there is never any need to feel the cold once inside this special canvas palace. To complete this comfortable accommodation, there is a full-sized double bed, with a two seater sofa and a small table for dining.

Inside, the yurt is furnished with everything you would expect from a comfortable hotel:

 - Full sized double bed, with two side tables;

 - Dining table with two chairs;

 - Comfortable two seater sofa;

 - Log burning stove;

 - Solar powered lighting;

 - Assorted rugs, cushions and soft furnishings;

- Wooden storage trunk and fabric lined boxes for your clothes.

 It has a smart glazed front door and two large double glazed windows to let the light in and keep the weather out. Mosquito netting screens over the door, window and roof vent ensure trouble-free nights. We're pretty sure we have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible!

 The maximum height of the yurt in the centre is 2.74 metres, and the area of the room is nearly 19 metres squared.

Outside you have a large area of garden plus vegetable patch for your enjoyment, with out door furniture and sun loungers.  You will also have exclusive use of the Green Mountain Yurt Shack.  This is a timber construction that provides you with a shaded outdoor kitchen raised on a wooden deck.  Here you will find all the equipment you need for a fully self catering holiday:

Kitchen

 - Crockery, plates, cups, glasses, and cutlery for up to four people;

 - Pots and pans and various utensils;

 - Sink with hot and cold running water;

 - Stainless steel work unit plus additional shelving;

 - Two ringed a gas ring stove;

 - Gas powered fridge;

 - Food storage containers.

Bathroom

 To one end of the 'Yurt Shack' you will find the Green Mountain Yurt 'Eco' Bathroom.  This is an enclosed room that has a shower, washbasin and a dry compost toilet.  Manufactured in Sweden this clever toilet will allow you to break free of mains drainage by employing a dry composting method to deal with the that most delicate of matters!

Power

 Hot water is provided in the kitchen and bathroom via a dedicated solar panel, and there is a basic lighting system in the bathroom, kitchen and yurt interior via a solar power system, so this holiday will be an OFF GRID 'eco' experience.  There is a supply of gas for the kitchen, but you don't have to use the fridge if you would rather not and instead of the gas hob you could have fun with the ingenius solar cooker we can lend you.

 Facilities for recharging phones, laptops etc. are available at the main house, as is a wifi connection.

 If you wander further from your yurt you will find yourself in the grounds of Cortijo Opazo, where our very own colourful gardens of exotic plants and shrubs are free for you to explore.
