FIESTA FUENTE DEL CONDE 1st 2nd & 3rd MAY
Hi everyone,coming up very soon is the fantastic Feria in our near by village of Fuente Del Conde that lasts for 3 days and is amazing to be part of with such a real community feel and everyone is made welcome by all the local Spanish people who attend.
Casa Pino Solo is running as apartments during the first few weeks of May so if you want to book a last minute offer with us then we do still have some availability and you can then join in the celebrations with the Spanish locals.
Fuente Del Conde is only a few minutes away from Casa Pino Solo so you can come and enjoy all the celebrations day and night if you wish!
