Being up in the Sierra Nevada meant that the heat was not as oppressive as down in Granada City. The location is superb and full of real character with wonderful views. The buildings are not boring new build holiday homes but instead have been built from authentic local materials to reproduce the feel and heritage of originals on the site going back hundreds of years. The pool is a real swimming pool: Great for doing some exercise to assuage the guilt after all the food and drink. :0). Mo and Lucy are superb hosts and very generous in sharing produce from their extensive fruit and veg gardens. A superb place to really chill out.
