From the minute we arrived to be greeted by Sofia, we knew we hadn't booked long enough for our stay (5 nights). Our room was large, cool and comfortable. The door lead to a vista of meadow flowers, eucalyptus & cork-oak trees and the breakfast room - which is a large wooden building standing in the grounds. The frogs in the pond sang all day and night and - thanks to Sofia's detailed list of restaurant recommendations - we ate well every day. At the end of most evenings, we ended-up in the communal library/lounge for an hour or so, where Sofia and/or Jorge would often pop-in to chat - and Jorge to play selections from his excellent collection of World music.
The only downside of our stay is the fact that our kids are adult and have left home, so we were on our own - when they were children, our kids would have loved it at Muxima.
The World is too big and there's not enough time to see it all - but this is one place that we will definitely return to. Be warned, though, the relaxation you'll experience seeps into your soul - on our first morning back in the UK, we didn't wake-up until 9:30... oops!
