On the referral of a hotel manager in Granada, we decided to book a stay at Casa Rural El Paraje in Burchules, in the Alpujarra region. What a gem of a referral this turned out to be. Firstly, our hosts, Brenda and Philip spoke 4 languages including English. Then they had some magnificent high altitude local wines that were phenomenal! Then they cooked dinner which was amongst 2 of the best meals I have had in Spain in the 3 weeks we have been here. The location is peace personified. The water is from a fresh mountain spring and good enough to bottle. Our room looked out across the Sierras down to the sea from about 5000 feet. It was just amazing! What a great experience.
