Our 4th visit to El Amparo was again a truly unique experience ... a place where you can do as much or little as you choose. We enjoy being active and during this holiday took advantage of proprietor Jeff’s cycles for a ride along the Washington Irving trail to Alhama de Granada for the first refreshment stop of the day, before cycling through the gorge to El Ventorro bar/restaurant for further sustenance. In fact this cycle ride was so enjoyable that we did this twice during our stay! We also explored on foot from the door.
On a previous visit we have ridden with a guy named Wolf in the National Park on his Andalucían horses. If you are a horse rider this is a great experience to ride well schooled horses. If you aren’t so experienced, Wolf will take care of you.
If you choose not to be so energetic and the weather is good, the large pool and Jacuzzi are inviting. As El Amparo is situated in a rural position the bird life is interesting and varied and the vista superb. Depending on the daytime temperature, breakfast and dinner may be taken in the courtyard. We enjoyed Jeff’s cooking.
Jeff and Sally are both very knowledgeable about the area and will always impart their expertise with regard to parking, restaurants, how to get tickets, etc., etc., if required.
Although we’ve been to El Amparo several times there are many new places still to explore and lots that we like to re-visit.
