Our stay here was a holiday within a holiday .. we just loved everything we did during our 4 day stay early Oct with the weather quite perfect too. Interesting drive from Orgiva, with the last few kms to Pitres easy. Our apartment was perfect; generous balcony, more than adequate kitchen, insect screens so slept with windows wide open each night. SO quiet; slept like logs.
B/fast on the balcony, prepared by Sara, watching the sun rise over the valley below. Jose is so passionate about the area, and advised us of walks to do.(Check them on google maps as some of the tracks are not on the guides he has and can cause confusion when you are way up in the hills!) Make sure you do the 5 village walk as he advises .. we mised the start of the track so did it in reverse .... took us 4.5hrs (with pub stops) rather than 2!! We also walked over to Capileira/Bubion (up to 1600m) and caught bus back; amazing day. Market day Thurs, with huge variety of food, clothing, plants.. wonderful atmosphere. Great little supermarket off town square. Check out the local artisans in the area. So talented. Sadly we had to leave on the day of celebrations for the annual wild boar shoot. Heard the brass band practicing as we had b/fast! THOROUGHLY recommend a stay at these AMAZING 2* plus apartments and Pitres. We will remember this haven for as long as we live.
