“The end of one road and the beginning of another?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

The place is literally the end of the road. Unless you bring your own mule you have to cover the last 200 meters on foot as the village roads are too narrow for a car, let alone a bus. (But you can park at the church).

In our case, the owner Anne Hunt came to the bus stop to welcome us, a nice gesture. Most people have said plenty about the house and the location, so here more personal impressions. I was there in the first week of October for a writers' workshop and everything about the place exceeded expectations by far.

Anne seems to have a special skill in finding the right people as staff: in our case it was largely Maria (an American) and Christof (from Germany). There was no feeling of 'us' and 'them': they ate with us and talked with us. And Canadian cook Wes, who comes into the house, is simply a sensation. His largely vegetarian cooking (but meat he does too occasionally) was supreme. All conjured up in a tiny kitchen. As if that wasn't enough: you can talk to him about art, about philosophy, about a whole range of topics.

Our study sessions were exclusively in the garden - even in October it was pleasantly but not excessively warm. If necessary, a new lounge has been added on. You can make tea or coffee there as you wish. The rooms are fine, and very individually equipped: modern showers (a bit 'Spanish' - they tend to be generous in distributing water all over the place...) and under floor heating.

If Ferreirola is too quiet for you: there is nothing at all in the village itself but a bar/restaurant 15 minutes walk away. Good fun. they claim to have invented the pizza there: a dastardly Italian stole the recipe and the rest is history... Just behind it a vegetarian restaurant of exceptional quality. If you have a car, Anne has further recommendations in the area. You think you are at the end of the world but there are excellent resources hidden all around.

All in all: this is not a place for everyone but if you love good food and brilliant scenery and are happy to walk extensively in the hills and do little else, then this is the place for you. Shoes will do in the village but do bring trekking boots if you are more adventurous.

We stayed at Casa Ana for a week recently and thoroughly enjoyed it, everything was perfect. The location is beautiful and peaceful and the welcome provided by Anne was very warm. Our room was very comfortable and well thought out, the food both at breakfast and evening was excellent and the packed lunches were varied and filling. We walked most days and found the scenery to be stunning and local villages welcoming. Casa Ana was the perfect place to return to and relax in the evening.

Nestled in a small, white village perched on a mountain with views that never end, Casa Ana offers a sweet spot to lay your head at night. Anne is a visionary who saw possibilities in this property and turned them into reality. And she takes good care of her guests. Rooms are comfortable with good beds and linens. Food, be it breakfast, a packed lunch or a three course dinner is amazing along with a superb wine selection. Views are stunning and the hiking is outstanding. There's lots to see and do and Anne will help you find just the right direction to take. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute.

Room Tip: Each room is unique; all are comfortable.

We stayed at casa ana for two nights. We had a warm welcome by the owner, Anne. The bed&breakfast is in a very small village in the alpujarras. For a restaurant you have to walk to the nearest village (15 minute walk) or drive to the otter villages in the area. From casa ana you can walk directly through the beautifull mountains and small mountain villages. We have had a great stay at the casa!

Spent 8 wonderful days at this great place. Everything was terrific and included a delightful cordon bleu evening meal cooked by the entertaining Wes. Anne is a lovely host and could not be more helpful. If you know the La Taha area then this is a wonderful place to explore its delights further. If you don't know La Taha you should - and this is a fantastic place to begin your discovery.

Casa Ana is a traditional white-washed building set in the Alpujarras Mountains. It was so quiet, peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful. The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented and Anne and Nan were kind hosts. I had friends come over who were staying in various locations nearby and they weren't minded at all. We used the kitchen to cook some party food and store wine and that was fine. Great value for money. Definitely recommend and will be back!

Casa Ana is nestled in a most idyllic setting in the Alpujarras mountains .... in a gorgeous, little "pueblo blanco" (white village), and a simply magical place to stay. Each room is unique and wonderfully decorated and the breakfast is delicious and plentiful! There are myriad trails in every direction in these mountains, from short to long, easy to challenging and everything in between. And if you'd prefer to explore the local villages, there are several within (short & long) walking distance. Anne is such a warm host and has certainly created a delightful place to spend some time. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in the Alpujarras region of Spain (you must come!), absolutely plan to stay at Casa Ana.

Room Tip: Anne also offers the option to have a catered dinner at the B&B. Her chef is wonderful and the s...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Casa Ana is a historic village house in the mountainous Alpujarra region of Andalucia. Once a family home, with a wine press, olive store, barns and a goat shed, the property was lovingly restored between 2005 and 2013. It provides comfortable, quiet accommodation with 8 en suite bedrooms, dining room, sitting room, a Moorish courtyard garden and several south-facing terraces. The style is simple and traditional - chestnut roof beams and terracotta floors - but with modern comforts, including underfloor central heating in winter and rain showers. At Casa Ana we provide delicious breakfasts using local produce - fresh oranges from village growers, local honey, eggs, bread, hams and olive oil. Picnic lunches are also available. The house is located in the mountain village of Ferreirola (population around 28), near Pitres. The village has fantastic views of the Trevelez river gorge, and is a wonderful base to go walking, explore the Sierra Nevada National Park, visit the traditional white villages of the Alpujarra or take a day trip to Granada or the Mediterranean beaches. ... more   less
