This wonderful B&B is located only 30 minutes south of Granada, which provides a perfect location to explore not only Granada, but the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains and the beaches to the south. Scarlett and Chris provided excellent local restaurant recommendations which were all delicious. The breakfasts on the terrace complete with eggs cooked to order (and meat if desired) was the best part of the day. This was the perfect place to unwind from a hectic life and recharge. Take a walk down the road to the river or explore the nearby castle ruins. Of all the places we visited in Spain and Portugal on our trip, this was the best! Thank you Chris and Scarlett. Steve and Kathi.
