Our three days walking in the beautiful Sierra de Aracena was made very special by our stay at La Posada de San Marcos in the village of Alajar- a perfect base to explore the area and to rest those aching feet and recharge those batteries with excellent food. Lucy and Angel are fantastic hosts, welcoming and enthusiastic about spanish cuisine and also we had a lovely room overlooking the pool and the countryside. We ended up having the equivalent of "full board". We enjoyed our evening meal so much the first night that we ate there next two nights and we had a daily packed lunch which was superb. Breakfasts are also very enjoyable, with the chance to sample different olive oils and other Spanish favourites for the more adventurous food explorers. What a treat!
