In today’s episode, we’ll be talking to Kinga and David (mainly David, he did most of the talking) about their vegan hotel in Southern Spain. This lovely couple is Polish in origin and has lived and traveled all over the world. A couple of years ago, they did something that so many dream of doing; escaping the nine to five grind, the high stress, and city life in exchange for rural southern Spain. Without having jobs or a place to live they just loaded up the car and came down. I don’t want to spoil the story, but in 2020 they are the owners of a vegan hotel in one of the stunning white villages in the foothills of the Sierras. Now, this hotel has actually been named by the Guardian in October 2019 as one of the top 20 best vegan and vegetarian hotels and B&Bs in Europe. I have visited although I have not stayed and I got to meet the lovely owners and they are so lovely!

This is a little description of the hotel from the website and its location just to get your imagination flowing! 

"Meson Mudejar Vegan is located in Archez, a small village in the province of Malaga, on the foothills of the Sierra Almijara on the scenic Mudejar Route, which winds its way through some of the most picturesque white-washed villages.

Archez has a beautiful valley setting. The River Turvilla runs through the village. Following the course of the river, a beautiful walk takes you up into the hills and into the neighboring village of Canillas de Albaida. 

Today, most of the village slopes are filled with vines, avocado, olive and fig trees, and the local farmers can be seen collecting their harvests.

The character of the 18th Century building (one of the oldest in the village) – has been renovated in its traditional Mudejar style and offers you five enchanting rooms, all individually decorated. 

Meson Mudejar Vegan provides a great base for cycling, walking, running or any other type of active holiday. We are situated at 530 meters above sea level on the foothills of Sierra Almijara and Tejeda National Park. The setting is very impressive and the Mediterranean Sea is just 16 km drive away if you want to spend a relaxing day on the beach.

Now, as we are all painfully aware, COVID19 has had a huge impact on Spain’s tourism for the summer of 2020 and Meson Mudejar like so many other tour companies is really struggling. Their landlord is not giving them any rent relief and as such they are asking for support from the vegan community. I will link to the blog post in the description which talks more about their dilemma and there are many ways to support

Book a stay or buy a gift certificate (they have some incredible packages at heavily discounted prices). The dates can be changed so no need to worry and of course spread the word about even the existence for the hotel to anyone thinking about heading to Spain!

Share this podcast and let any of your vegan and or cycling Iberophiles in your life know about it!

I didn’t realize when I scheduled this podcast that this is my second podcast in a week about Spain and third about Spain in total! Hopefully, you do not mind and are learning a little bit about this beautiful country!
