A wonderful place to stay. We arrived having been travelling around Spain for 4 weeks and it felt like coming home. Francisco and his wife make you feel so welcome although they speak no English.
It was easy to find with our satnav and there was easy free parking nearby. It is a charming traditional old house. Bubion is one of the tiny villages of white houses clinging to the mountainside with tiny narrow streets. There was no lift. (I don’t think anywhere in Bubion has a lift). Our room was on the 2nd floor and was lovely. It had a huge window in 2 of the walls. One with a view of the snow topped Sierra Nevada and one looking up the little street. The room was very simple with curtains and bedcovers in the look of the traditional woven materials – very pretty. The room was small but perfectly adequate. The beds were comfy, there was a side table and a chair and a wardrobe. The bathroom was good with a bidet and hair dryer and special little bars of soap with mountain herbs. The bath was good with a good shower. The shower curtain was fabric but it was not one of those awful ones that cling. The room was spotlessly clean. There was no telly or Wi-Fi in the rooms but downstairs was a large room spilling out onto a beautiful terrace. This is where it all happens. Breakfast – simple (not free but cheap) and excellent. There is a comfy sofa and chairs and a huge telly and a great place to sit for Wi-Fi connection. There are a huge number of books about the area in English and novels. Francisco also has information on many wonderful walks and will print out info for you. The terrace is a joy. It looks out down over the valley. The view is quite amazing. There are plants growing and a fountain with fish and a talking parrot. There is also a terrace on the 1st floor and 2nd floor. We took to sitting out on the terrace on the 2nd floor, drinking wine and watching the sun sink down behind the hills whilst a crazy black bird sang to us from the chimney top of the nearest house.
We had lunch was at either one of 2 amazing places nearby, up the hill, on either side of the main street through Bubion. One was called Tiede, the other was directly opposite.
Everyone was so friendly, it was comfortable, peaceful and beautiful – we felt this was our perfect place
