Denise (owner) was a brilliant communicator in the weeks prior to arriving. We were welcomed by Graham and Rosie (keyholders) with lovely snacks and wine - and their home made cherry jam. We have a large 7 seater VW Caravelle which was very tough to get into the parking garage as the entrance is to the left on a very tight turn on an extremely steep hill. For a stay in a mountain town, this lovely three bedroom apartment and lovely lounge, with terrace and balcony, was superb.

It was very well equipped and the views from the lounge (and roof terrace) were just amazing! The bedrooms were warm and the bed super-comfy. We appreciated the warm brushed-cotton bedding and extra blankets, as it was quite cool in February when we were there. The fire in the lounge warmed the bathroom too by a clever vent system. Firewood was available to purchase just a couple of doors down from Casa Josefa. The village of a Capiliera is very pretty and interesting just to stroll around. However, it has all we needed for our holiday in terms of a small supermarket, bakery, pharmacy and some lovely restaurants. We would definitely stay in Capiliera at Casa Josefa again as it was a great base for walking, our main reason for holidaying at this time of year. I wish we could have stayed for longer this time - thank you Elena and family for making us feel so welcome.

Girasol was perfect (the pool was gated and heated!) with lovely, well maintained gardens and lots of indoor and outdoor space. The kitchen is big enough to cook proper meals for four people and there is a small utility with a washing machine which was also extremely handy. We had ordered firewood prior to our arrival so were able to sit around a real log fire in the evenings after a day of swimming and reading - bliss!
