We have just returned from a painting/walking holiday and our group were based at the two posadas in Alajar. We had a fabulous holiday and can't fault the Posada San Marcos or the Posada de Alajar. We all ate at San Marcos and the food was unbeatable. Lucy and Angel were brilliant hosts, helpful, friendly in an unobtrusive way and they worked very hard to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Good homely, healthy food cooked with local ingredients - organic wherever possible. Our picnic lunches were superb too. Alajar was a lovely spot to get a taste of the real Spain. We had the large attic in the Posada de Alajar - there were only two of us but it would be ideal for a family as there were two bedrooms, (one twin, one double with an extra single) and two shower rooms, with a lounge on the lower level (the stairs wouldn't suit anyone with walking difficulties). We walked over to the other Posada for our meals but it was less than five minutes away and a pleasant walk in the Spanish sunshine. The San Marcos had a large lawn and a swimming pool. We ate on the terrace in the evenings watching the sun go down - a beautiful peaceful spot.
