Beautiful place to stay in stunning surroundings.

5 of 5
Can't fault this place - very quiet & rural (own transport essential) with amazing views from the living room window, but with good roads & easy access to Granada (Malaga airport is also less than two hours away on fantastic roads), also under 15k (on nearly empty roads) to Alcala la Real, which is a wonderful place with everything you could need (including a Lidl), but not too small to be lacking in facilities or too big to be daunting. The views of Fortaleza De La Mota (Alcala's Moorish fortress) on the way in are breathtaking, as is the view of the Sierra Nevada mountains on the way back. Helen (the owner) is very friendly, approachable and helpful - and her dog Pip is a real character! The whole area is laid back & very friendly - the people (although not many english speakers about - learn some Spanish & be really appreciated!) are wonderfully helpful & kind; prices are low and there is none of the cynical rip-off attitude which one can encounter on the coast. Try the Annapurna Gastrobar in Frailes, just up the road (Friendly english-speaking owners) for fantastic food at low prices (21 euros for 2x3-course meals with drinks!!). Back at the accommodation, Helen really goes out of her way to ensure the comfort of her guests (Wood burner, gas heater, electric blankets) and is very knowledgeable regarding the local area. If you need to find out anything, she can tell you or will quickly find out for you. Although we didn't have the best of weather during our visit (rain & snow in late March), I really did not want to leave. Love it!! I am torn between publicising the area or keeping it a secret so that it doesn't get spoiled like other areas we have loved but have become over popular like the Axarquia, but Helen does deserve to be at max capacity 100% of the time because the accommodation & ambience is so good! Please note that there is no microwave oven or TV, although there is wifi internet at sufficient speed to allow streaming of films - what more would you need!! Can't wait to visit the area again once summer has kicked in.....
