In the otherwise not too attractive town of Consuegra this little inn with just a handful of rooms is definitely worth making your home base while you explore Don Quixote Country. Above the inn are a dozen windmills and a huge 11th century castle, an awesome sight especially if you approach from the direction of Toledo on the little back road and not on the main highway. We arrived at La Vida de Antes late in the day after a long and exhausting drive. We were greeted by a lovely receptionist who spoke excellent English, we could see that she was really concentrating on it. She provided some excellent guidance including a tip to to and have tapas at Gaudi, which we took her advice, waiting until it opened at 8:30 by having a drink in the town square, sitting and watching the townspeople go by was interesting and easily filled the hour we had to spare. The food at Gaudi was exceptional and we ate and drank our fill for an amazing low 21 Euro. Back to La Vida, our room was spacious and comfortable. A bit worn, but spotless and everything smelled wonderful. We explored some other rooms. I think we were the only guests. It seems as if the rooms with the bathtubs are largest. We will ask for one of those the next time around. We had a room with a shower and while it was fine for one night, a little more space would have been nice. The lovely back garden and terrace is gorgeous. We arrived too late to use it. Breakfast was the usual typical minimal, but only 4 Euro so what can you say. Starving for protein we asked for some yoghurt and the owner, Paula, brought us a lovely bowl full of excellent natural stuff. We had some of our best coffee in Spain at La Vida de Antes.
