                                                      Wonderful Accommodation, Fantastic Village!

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      This was our second visit to Stefan and Naomi's accommodation in Faraguit. We stayed in La Cueva last year, El Sol this year. We loved it so much last year, we invited family members to join us this year, they stayed in La Cueva. El Sol is smaller that La Cueva, but is equally fabulous in its design and the facilities provided. The properties differ in layout and size, but are designed with the same care to detail, and bring their own unique qualities. Spotlessly clean! I particularly liked the very comfortable lounge area in El Sol, which was very welcome after our long, strenuous walks, of which there are many in the region. The village, in which the accommodation is located, is typically Spanish, and no-one speaks English, which we love. Don't let this put you off, the villagers are extremely friendly, saying 'Hola' as you pass, and you'll find a way to make yourself understood. Unfortunately we experienced a great deal of heavy rain during our visit, the up side - this meant we were 'encouraged' to do other things, and boy did we find some wonderful places. Here are some I would recommend: - Cabo de Gata, a fantastic, well populated nature reserve on the furthest south east point, by Almeria. The area also hosts the longest, most deserted beach I have ever seen! - Granada, where you will find the amazing Alhambra. Don't expect access to the palace unless you have booked well in advance. So much to see and do however, it really is worth a visit. Use the open bus to tour the city and stop off to see things, such fun. 'La Teteria del Banuelo' cafe, on the main street by the river, comes highly recommended, wonderful Arabic coffee and the waffles are to die for! - Frigiliana, a small town to the north of Nerja. A truly beautiful town with phenomenal views, great places to eat/ drink, and lots of lovely shops - Mini Hollywood, ignore the tourist part (unless you like that kind of thing), experience the amazing walk through the canyon where A Fistful of Dollars, and The Good the Bad and the Ugly were filmed. Untouched desert land area, an experience not to be missed. And finally, if you are a wildlife fanatic you will not be disappointed. We were blessed with Short-Toed Eagles, Flamingo's, Avocets, Bee-Eaters, Golden Oriole, Black Wheatears, Toads which we are yet to identify .... need I go on. Oh, I nearly forgot, Naomi makes fabulous homemade jams and oils, available in the kitchen for sale. Book extra weight on your flight - worth it!

                                                      An attractive and comfortable casita with splendid views

                                                      4 of 5
                                                      A pretty and well set up house, overlooking the valley. Excellent directions from Malaga, although took nearer three hours to get there due, not only to unfamiliarity, but also to the long and winding roads up and down the mountainsides. Perfect for serious hikers, but not for the creakier, less agile (like me!), due to steep and sometimes rocky inclines and descents, with not a lot of flat and gentle strolling or ambling pathways. Car essential, as no supermarkets or restaurants within easy walking distance. Overall, a good time with fantastic scenery and warm welcome - even tho' our hiking days are over!

                                                      Fantastic!

                                                      What a fabulous house. Beautiful location (overlooking the mountains and the lovely pool), peaceful and quiet, totally relaxing, plus gorgeous gardens. Well placed to visit Granada (do book the Alhambra well in advance, which we failed to do), the coast and the mountain village. We were very well looked after by Kay and Bernie who were both helpful and entertaining (and even helped us change a flat tyre). They also have the 2 best dogs in Andalucia - and an amazing collection of turkeys (my particular favourite), geese, chickens - lovely. On a more boring note, the house was clean, well set up with everything you could need (including wifi) and a great wood burning fire (which was much needed on a few of the evenings).
