Geoda de Aguilón

A wonderful cottage just 500m from the biggest geode in Europe, situated in Pilar de Jaravía.

This is a really special place located just 500 meters from the largest Geoda in Europe, in Pilar de Jaravia, with a mountain backdrop, sea views and yet, just a short drive, cycle or walk, to the best blue flags beaches of Andalucia, San Juan de Los Terreros. Perfectly located in the foothills of Aguilon Mountain, just a short drive to the golf course of Aguilon, and the train station of Pilar de Jaravia, also just a few minutes drive.

This beautiful detached residence is the perfect location for the whole family whatever your interests, golf, walking, swimming, birdwatching, shopping or just lazing on the terrace, there is something here for everyone. The maximum capacity of the house is 8 person and pets are not allowed.

Discover the largest geode of Europe

In December 1999, members from Madrid’s Mineralogist Group discovered Pulpí’s Geode in Mina Rica, a colossal mineral geode measuring 8 metres length times 2 metres height fully covered in huge gypsum crystals. It’s upholstered with gypsum crystals, some of them measuring 2 metres long. Its transparency and spotlessness make it a wonder of nature. Given its dimensions as well its crystals size, transparency and perfection, this is a unique phenomenon worldwide (Calaforra & García-Guinea, 2000). The origin of this outlandish geode can be explained in two stages: the gap formation and the subsequent mineral deposit on the inside. The gap was produced by dolomite karstifications that make up the Sierra del Aguilón, accompanied hidro-termal volcanic shots. The mineral deposit could follow a mixed model (Karstic and hidro-termal).

Es sin dudarlo uno de los mejores sitios para descansar, desconectar y disfrutar del sol de Andalucía. La casa maravillosa. Tiene una piscina con el agua perfecta de temperatura (lo mejor de la casa) y si te apetece tienes jacuzzi. Barbacoa con mesa gigante y pérgola para el sol. Mosquiteras En las ventanas.sofás super cómodos tanto dentro como fuera. Todo cerca y a la vez lejos del ruido. Playa a 5 min, supermercados, bares y tiendas de todo un poco. En definitiva 100% recomendado!

I think this is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing break in a beautiful and traditional country house. The outside space is huge and has an outside kitchen and many terraces. The garden and orchard add to the charm and the pool is a refreshing addition on those hot Spanish afternoons. And the addition of a jacuzzi spa is ideal to relax in and take in the views. It traditional style makes this a fabulous getaway from it all place to retreat to.

My place for relax and recuperation. Incredible pool, terraces and open spaces. A lovely walk, or cycle, a visit to the geoda and then a lovely barbecue. This is the place. My favourite place for a family Christmas by the fire, IF we are lucky enough for it to be chilly, and a jump in the jacuzzi. A place for sharing with friends and family. xx
