For whom does Familia ESTÁ open its doors?
*For children with disabilities such as autism, illnesses or recovering from an illness. For children living in stressful environments that don´t allow the ability to enjoy a holiday. They can come here together with their parents, siblings and even with their own specialist/accompanist to spend an unforgettable relaxing holiday.
*For parents with an illness, disability and/or for whatever reason have a physical adaption, like a colostomy bag or visible prosthesis and therefore feel uncomfortable in public areas, such as on the beach, a public swimming pool, a campsite or hotel. Not only is there a lot of privacy due of the small scale here, but above all there is the understanding and acceptance so you can finally fully enjoy a special holiday together with your children.
*For associations and institutions that want to organize a holiday here for their clients / members (small groups, due to limited number of sleeping places).
*For donors/caretakers/specialists who want to organize a special holiday for a client, acquaintance, friend or family member (young or old) with a request for help. They can go on holiday here together and can then actively offer their help in a relaxed, unique environment
*And of course all our members, donors and volunteers are very welcome.

From Polopos we drive back home along the impressive Costa Tropical, with a rest stop on the beach.
*WHITE VILLAGES OF THE MOUNTAIN TOUR*
The highest villages in Spain are located on the edge of the Sierra Nevada National Park. Charming little white villages, each of which still has its own character. We drive 25 kilometers or 45 minutes on paved provincial roads and unpaved mountain roads to the town of Pórtugos, where we will visit a mineral spring and waterfall. From there we return home through the towns of Pitres, Capileira and Pampaneira. This tour includes a stop at the highest point of the mountains with a beautiful view over the Poqueira Valley and a visit to Capileira or Pampaneira with all its souvenir shops, drinking fountains and terraces.
