La Casota
La Casota is an agricultural property set in the very heart of the valley, on the old road linking the villages of Campell and Fleix, at the foot of the Cavall Verd mountain.

La Casota was originally the site of an ancient 12th-century Almohad settlement, which included a defensive tower (recently classified as an Object of Cultural Interest), erected on an outcrop of rock that was easy to defend and affording a view of the neighbouring fortresses: the castles of Atzabaras, Pop, Orba and Denia, with the coast beyond; on a clear day the island of Ibiza is visible.

Alongside this tower the 17th-century Mallorcan settlers built the farmstead now known as La Casota, to which a number of auxiliary constructions were added over the course of time: the "Riu-Rau" or typical arcade-fronted building for drying raisins; the "Casa de la Era" or Threshing-Floor House; the "Estufa" or Stove, where the raisin-drying process was continued on rainy days. The whole complex has been restored and refurbished for the use of guests as follows:
