Forget the 'Costa's', this delightful area of Southern Spain (the Alpujarras) on the Southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada is the 'real Spain'. Real and friendly people, real and friendly shops and bars, with no hassle, mass tourism is just not recognised here!
Fabulous area for keen, and not so keen walkers, of all ages and abilities. We walked, accompanied by our excellent host and guide, David, in rain, (warm rain), and brilliant sunshine, over wide and varied landscapes. Thoroughly enjoyable, and we always looked forward to returning each day to 'Los Arcos', where Jill (and David) made sure we were 'well fed and watered'. I can add no further comments to the excellent hospitality of this couple, very well documented in previous reviews, suffice it to say, if there was a 'six star' category for B&B's in this area of Spain for food, drinks, and comfortable accommodation, in a wonderfully relaxed and friendly atmosphere, 'Los Arcos' would most definitely be pinning them to their front door!!
The roof terrace is an added bonus, and the complimentary mini (maxi?) bar on the way out to the roof, certainly makes the incredible views even more enjoyable!!
The local market even comes to your front door once a week, and sets up in the Church square opposite.
We were recommended to this 'home from home', and would unhesitatingly add our own recommendations to those looking for a peaceful, and relaxing stay, in a most beautiful and scenic area of Southern Spain.
