Cosy, charming, delightful house surrounded by stunning mountains, 5 min drive to Grazalema

5 of 5
This was a wonderful place to spend Christmas week. Beautifully furnished with locally built and antiquish cupboards, tables and amazing Russian dolls door. Great fireplace and there are even woodburners in the bedrooms although we didn't use those much as they were rather too efficient. No WiFi but 3G/4G sufficient to create WiFi hotspot, stream music from Spotify, etc. Electrics slightly quirky - electric heaters needed unplugging if using the kettle, but no problem and it was nice having them for instant heat when coming in from the cold. Kitchen has excellent large gas range and oven so great for cooking. Lots of staples- salt, sugar, pepper, some spices there so no need to buy everything...but lacks a can opener! Eroski and Dia supermarkets off main square in Grazalema were adequate. Butcher shop excellent but no fresh meat on display so you have to ask for what you want. Lots of panaderias and shops selling delicious local cheeses, hams, honey, etc with quite extended opening hours. Tons of restaurants in town for such a small place, nearly all open in December. Tourist information guy v helpful, knowledgeable and speaks English well, can give you walking permits for the reserve areas on the day or in advance. We had a couple of gorgeous sunny days walking in high mountains - Simancon-Reloj walk highly recommended. Also had lots of cloudy, rainy days and found some pretty good lower level walks. Garganta Verde was particularly stunning. Vultures so close you can hear the wind in their feathers. Also saw lots of wild goats in mountains closer to Grazalema.

Beautiful apartment - perfect location

5 of 5
David Wood's apartment is the best one we have ever stayed in - the layout allows for a lot of privacy - the beds are comfortable - the views from the terrace on the second floor are stunning and the apartment is close to the square and restaurants - Finally, the host was very helpful and provided many resources about things to do in the area
