A great casita with a lovely terrace and friendly and helpful owners. The surrounding area, at this time of year, was full of wild flowers, butterflies and bird life. The nightingales singing in the garden were wonderful and we spotted a lot of typical mountain birds nearby. Plenty of scope for rambling and picnics. Just one small suggestion, we would have appreciated a small book with guidance re, local shops (location and opening times), restaurants, plus details of where to wash clothes etc.
Second Visit - Wonderful
Our second stay at this lovely casita. Very comfortable and easy going, well equipped and so warm and cozy with the log burner. Logs provided by Alan plus lots of ideas on walking and the area. Lovely walk into town theough fields just waking up after Winter, a real Spanish feel, friendly people, great weekly market. Walking here is a delight. We walked for miles on the old railway line, great views, spring flowers, not many people - perfect. The whole area has so much to offer or you can just relax on the terrace and enjoy the views, birds, eagles too. Thank you Lyn and Alan, we will be back!
Dear Lynda and Ken
Thank you for your wonderful review and for staying at Narnialodgings for the 2nd time.
As you say walking is a delight around the area and beyond, next time you come we will advice you on some different walks that will give you spectacular views and wonderful nature along the way.
We look forward to seeing you again.
Alan and Lynn
A perfect escape
Our stay was everything we hoped it would be - a peaceful getaway in the mountains and a taste of rural Spain.
The Casita was perfect and had everything we needed. We both loved relaxing on the big, sunny terrace, enjoying the stunning views of the mountains.
Alan and Lynn were friendly and helpful from our initial enquiry to leaving. I can't recommend this place enough.
Charming casita in the woods
We loved our week in the casita. The views are amazing, the countryside is largely farmland in between the mountains. Everything is provided for a peaceful holiday in the woods with the sounds of wildlife including the bells from the goat herd. The house is very well equipped, comfortable and tastefully furnished.
We found the locals in Zafarraya very friendly and helpful (bit of Spanish useful here!) So few tourists visit we couldn't even buy a post card, and we were asked if we had just moved in! We had some amazing day trips out - particularly to the embalse de Bermejales - a beautiful lake where you can swim with hardly anyone around (with some friendly fish!)
Don't be put off by the fact there are few reviews - the visitors book is packed with glowing reviews in the house. Thanks Alan!
Wonderful, Relaxing, Fabulous
This has been a Wonderful, Relaxing, Fabulous, Fascinating fortnight, spent in this Beautiful Hacienda in the hills. We have been delighted with all on offer and have loved the dogs, cats, birds, butterflies the flora and fauna all around and the sound of distant goat bells and birdsong. Alan and Lynn you have been the perfect most accommodating hosts providing spot on facilities. We congratulate you on creating this piece of Paradise and wish you all the best for your future plans and ventures which we will follow with interest.
We recommend the Alhambra Palace in Granada, El Canuelo restaurant, Hot springs Alhama de Granada, Waterfall at Loja, Rio frio for fresh trout, Lake at Bermejales, and more and more.. the cycling has been incredible ...Enjoy, Heather and Derek.
Our second stay at the casita and it was EVEN BETTER THAN the FIRST. The peace, tranquillity and wonderful eccentricity makes this a place to return to many times-and we will. There is so much more to discover and as the walking in the hills has now begun a return visit to go further, higher and deeper into those spectacular places is a must. Thank you Alan and Lynn for sharing this all - and the family of dogs, our daily joy - it is a truly magical place. There is a maxim, don't go back, you may be disappointed, that the reality doesn't live up to the imagination, NOT SO with Narnia (it's all in the name) With our very best wishes Diana and Iain
