We arrived home safe and sound after a lovely week at Casa Flossie, we all thoroughly enjoyed the house, the location and the weather. Thank you
We had a most relaxing week at "Casa Flossie" in the village of Enix, Almeria.
The house was charming and typically Andalucian. It was very clean with a lovely atmosphere.
We were met by the caretaker, who lives in the village and is English, he speaks great Spanish and gave us some good information.
The village has three bars and a restaurant. The bar/restaurant Almeria is only open until 7pm, but at weekend Spanish people come from far and wide to eat the "mountain cuisine" Rabbit and Chicken done in garlic are the mainstays with a very nice paella which we had as a takeaway one day.
The view from the roof terrace, which is directly outside the living room, is outstanding and enjoyable evenings were spent there with a glass of wine or two.
The village is very quiet and traditional with a lovely square containing the 16th century church, but good company could be found in the bar in the square or the bar Avelina behind the church, where tapas and meals were good.
In the house itsself, there were plenty of towels and linen with all the trappings of home, including English satellite telly if you want it.
Special mention should go to our Spanish neighbours who always acknowledged us with a "buenas dias or hola".
There is a small shop in the village which is open a few hours a day, where you can get fresh bread and cakes. Bigger shopping is just down the hill (about 15 mins) where there are big supermarkets.
The beach at Aguadulce was a delight, it takes about 20 mins to get there and there are little beach bars and a harbour there. My favourite bit of the holiday was swimming in the sea and then going for a tapas or two in the bar.
All in all it was a Spanish experience that we will be sure to repeat and much better than staying in a hotel. Plenty of excuses to practice your Spanish.
I would recommend this holiday to those looking for a relaxing and authentic Spanish break, with a coast that has not seen mass-tourism nearby.
P.S........If you like walking or jogging, it´s a stunning place to do either.
In this beautiful mountain village, this property offers a true Spanish Alpujarran experience, with superb walks from the front door. The village has 3 cafe/bar/restaurants and a shop/bakery. Try the superb cuisine in Cafe Almeria or in Cafe Avelina's - both a 2 minute stroll from the front door.
The beaches and shopping arcades of Aguadulce and Roquetas de Mar are 25 minutes away, with La Envia Golf course and clay-pigeon shooting 15 minutes away. Almeria airport is 30 minutes away, and Granada's Alhambra just 2.5 hours away by train from nearby Almeria City.
As well as Granada, the beautiful cities of Cordoba, Seville and Cadiz are also a relatively short and comfortable train ride (2-3 hours), from nearby Almeria City.
