                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Perfect location for a couple like us. The accommodation itself has been thoughtfully converted/renovated to a high standard, and there was everything there that we needed. Unlike some self catering places, the kitchen is stocked with all the necessaries (oil, salt, pepper, washing up liquid etc), and combined with the very generous 'welcome' pack, this allowed us to hit the ground running, and not waste our time or money unnecessarily. Fran and Mike are extremely knowledgeable and well connected in the village, and did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The area is fascinating, beautiful and full of character, from the abundant wildlife to the beautiful (and very tasty) black pigs responsible for the famous Jamon Iberico. We were blessed with fine weather so sat round in the sunshine for long periods (drinking wine), but there's loads to see within a fairly small radius. Rural Spain at its very best and we will undoubtedly be back. Hasta pronto!
