We agree with all the other reviews on this site - The posada is beautiful. Angel and Lucy were very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We particularly liked the fact that they take great pride in their village; location and local community. The location is great as a base for walking and visiting this "off the beaten track" part of Spain. We were pleasantly surprised that in late July/ August, although it was hot during the day, it was not over bearing at night. We did our walking in the morning and then relaxed by the pool in the afternoon. The location of the posada, on the edge of the village with only a wooded hillside as the backdrop to the garden, meant that afternoons were totally quiet and relaxing. If you stay here we would throughly recommend Lucy's meals. The Iberian pork with chocolate and black pepper was to die for! We shall be back.
