An absolute gem in the heart of Axarquia on the lake vinuela this has got to be Andalucia’s best kept secret!
I stayed here for 3 weeks in March alone with no car and had an absolutely wonderful time. It was a real treat to have all creature comforts, breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains and the magical experience of Isabelle’s warm and welcoming family.
It was a real home away from home and Isabelle and her family whom I would fondly describe as ‘salt of the earth’ were available at all times to ensure that my stay was comfortable and happy. Whether it was changing a gas bottle, fetching wood for the fire, frequently turning up with artichokes, strawberries, lemons, beans and chard from their garden, driving me places, popping by to say hello or even inviting me to join the family get together it was all done with a genuine huge smile and a warm heart. An absolute bonus for non Spanish speakers like me is that Isa speaks good English.
Over the 3 weeks people came and went and while walking past visitors from what seemed to be all parts of the world, in the next door houses, the exchanges were consistently along the lines of how exquisite the spot was, a real find and what an wonderful time was had by all! It always felt like being part of a secret club where we felt like the fortunate few and just could not believe our luck. Most found ways to extend their stays!
The icing on the cake really was that Isabelle and her family are so warm and welcoming and make it truly feel like a home away from home, yet one which ticks all boxes when it comes to a vacation wish list with all the creature comforts, in a paradisic setting which you can tailor make to your own needs whether you are one or several, want peace and serenity, nature and a good book or outdoor activities such as hiking, canoeing, cycling, fishing or horseback riding to name but a few things.
I personally just wanted to sit and read and oil paint on my terrace, others had group dinners, BBQ’s, spent time at the salt pool, went on daytrips (it is a perfect location for sightseeing!), attended the many local festivals, any children were quiet and well behaved and spent time cycling or attending to the nature cages full of birds and other animals created to entertain visiting children.
The extreme comfort of the accommodation, breathtaking views, warm welcome and excellent service make it a place I recall with fondness and recommend highly to others and will surely return to as soon as possible.
