Posada San Marcos: Sustainable luxury in the green heart of Andalusia

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Posada San Marcos but our environmental philosophy does not affect your comfort in any way, quite the opposite.

Posada San Marcos is in Alájar, a picturesque mountain village in the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park. Our traditional whitewashed hotel offers a unique combination of comfort and sustainability in this idyllic region of South Spain.

It is a relaxing haven surrounded by stunning views of cork oak forests. Here you can find the best of both worlds, as you can stroll through the ancient cobbled streets of Alájar and then relax in our accommodation, which is a blend of age-old tradition and modern comfort.

Company’s commitment to conservation of biodiversity and local development

Posada San Marcos is committed to the preservation of biodiversity and local development through actions such as:

  • We are the first accommodation in Andalusia and the only one in Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche to obtain the Ecolabel certification.
  • We are the first hotel in Andalusia to install a low-enthalpy geothermal energy system for heating and cooling the building through an underfloor heating/cooling system and a domestic hot water system, consuming 75% less energy than traditional methods.
  • We believe that the environment, community and culture in which we operate, as well as our relationships with local organisations, companies and individuals are vital to the success of our business. 
  • We promote the local heritage, architecture, culture and nature of the Natural Park.
  • We offer dishes based on age-old recipes and prepare them with the support of local organic farming.
  • We are partners and collaborate with the Lutra Association, a non-profit association that carries out different wildlife research, monitoring and recovery actions, as well as awareness-raising activities and environmental education about the natural and cultural values of the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park, among other things.
