Food Shopping

Some people love to explore the markets and have fun cooking 'at home', whilst others just want to keep it simple.

'Cooking at El Aguilon'

Your kitchen has a good-sized fridge, a gas-stove, an electric oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, pans, griddle pan, spices etc. so there should be everything you need to be able to cook ‘at home’.

There is a herb garden to the left of the stables so you’re welcome to forage for herbs

You have a cosy kitchen in your cottage with a farmhouse table. You are also welcome to use the tiled table under the shade of the wisteria by the swimming pool. There is also a barbecue area on the raised terrace of the flower-filled courtyard for your use.
