THE Perfect Triathlon or Cycling Training Camp
Great for small groups with people who want to get some really individualised training
Our base is in the the in the small village of Diezma, about 30 minutes East of Granada. This retreat is great for any cycling or triathlon group that wants to commit to serious training with a starting altitude of 1200 metres above sea level. This locality offers amazing rides through the mountains, trail running through forests and open water swimming in a stunning local reservoir .
We can offer anything from long weekends to a full 7 days accommodation. Full board , airport transfers and professionally supported rides lead by an English/Spanish speaking road rider can be agreed. Our place is a converted Olive Mill with a small pool on site. Diezma is 1 hr from Almeria and 1.5 hours from Malaga; EasyJet flys to both airports from Gatwick. This is a traditional rural Spanish village with a couple of bars, a bank and small supermarket.
Swimming facilities (open water) are just 10 minutes away in the form of a beautiful reservoir.
As a triathalete, I think the location is just perfect. Diezma is situated adjaecentt to a small mountain range called the Sierra Huétor where there are great trails for mountain biking and running. The road biking in the area is tremendous, over lovely quiet roads with glorious views and great little stop off points in deserted villages. For those who want to head out a little further, one of the epic mountain stages of La Vuelta is just 50k away in the Sierra Nevada.
