After two wonderful previous visits, we recently returned to Alajar and stayed at Lucy and Angel's new establishment. We thought the old place was very good, but the new one is amazing! The proprietors have done an incredible job of creating an eco-friendly inn from an ancient building. Great attention to detail has gone into the planning of it. The rooms are large, spotlessly clean and simply furnished with carefully restored pieces. The balcony has beautiful views over the garden and pool to the oak woodland beyond (running with waterfalls during our visit!). Delicious breakfast of artisan breads and home made jams, pate, and other local produce. It was wonderful to have guaranteed warmth from the ground source heating - especially when we got soaked on one of our walks! The owners are extremely knowledgeable about the area, and couldn't be friendlier or more welcoming. They clearly delight in sharing their knowledge with visitors and we look forward to our next visit - especially to try out the pool!
