Pascals' happy welcoming voice on the intercom was the prelude to a wonderful 5 nights in this little paradise called Casita Elisa, too short a stay by far! The accommodation was perfect for us and we could not have wanted for a better host and hostess who made absolutely sure we had everything we needed whilst, at the same time, respecting our privacy and space. Christa and Pascal were there with help and advice, and it was lovely to hear their stories of Spain and their travels around the world. There are so many wonderful spaces to be enjoyed around Casita Elisa, for those lazy periods or the moments when you are feeling a little more energetic. Gently swaying in the hammock to the sound of the birds and the distant goat bells, cooling off in the swimming pool or seeking revenge on the table tennis table! The village is a short drive away and we enjoyed the market and the local activities, including helping to make a giant paella! Granada is an 80 minute drive and the Alhambra Palace is a must. We took Pascals' advice and booked a 90 minute guided tour, fascinating! If you want to dip your toes in the Med' the coast is just a 50 minute drive. This was the perfect place for us to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and we shall be returning as soon as possible.
