Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Just had a fantastic week touring the Alpujarra mountains in Spain based at the wonderful B and B of Casa Ana at Ferreirola. The accommodation was perfect. Very comfortable beds and great cool rooms. Started the day on a great breakfast and had tea and coffee facilities on evening return to eat a snack or just to watch for a Golden Oriole from the terrace.

Room Tip: All rooms of high standard with en suite

I was there for 2 nights and enjoyed every one second. From the moment you enter the property, you feel the total relaxation, with marvelous view to the mountain. It made me forget instantly the arduous bus trip from Granada (3 hours. TIP: If you can rent a car. Bus trip is never recommended)

Never once did Anne, the owner, replied to my question without smile, and her assistant, Aussie who I do not know the name, was equally helpful.

And do not miss the weekend meal. Though it looks expensive at first considering other prices at the restaurant nearby, you will be eternally grateful that you can have that quality with meagre price. The food can easily served at 5 star restaurants at the middle of London.

Overall, I would not hesitate recommending this wonderful place to anyone to go to Alpujarra. It is heaven!!!

We only had one night here unfortunately as after a hair raising journey it was so utterly beautiful and peaceful we would liked to have stayed longer! There are many guides for a range of walks and great facilities. We went to eat in the nearby town and came back and lilt a fire in a communal room! Perfect :) Breakfast was nice but I would have liked a bit of a wider choice. Anne was open and friendly and although we only saw her a little I think she would have been able to help with any of your needs.

My sister and I stayed at Casa Ana for two nights as part of a week long trip to Granada and the Sierra Nevada, and could easily have stayed for much longer. The first thing that struck us upon arriving at Casa Ana was the tranquility, which gave us a total sense of relaxation and made the long and windy bus journey from Granada seem a distant memory .The B&B has beautifully thought out gardens and striking views to the mountains, which you can enjoy from the terrace. The rooms are simple, yet comfortable, with the thick walls providing welcome cool from the heat. Breakfast is delicious, with a selection of fruits, yogurt, breads, jams, eggs and the best honey I have ever tasted. During our stay we were very impressed by Anne's assistant Anja who was friendly and helpful without being intrusive, and gave us excellent advice on local hikes and any other information we needed. We wish Anja good luck on her onward travels to Northern Spain and whatever else lies ahead!

Ferrierola itself is quaint with no facilities to speak of (discounting the local well providing fresh spring water), but it is closely located to a few other small villages with bars, restaurants and grocery shops. The walks in the area are many and varied. We only had a couple of days to explore, but in that short time experienced a range of habitats including wooded valleys, meditteranean scrub, pine forests, olive groves and snow capped mountains.

Highly recommended to anyone :)

Our two visits to Casa Ana have been during the winter months. We found warmth, silence and fine hospitality. Casa Ana is a perfect base for walking. We were lucky with the weather and followed well-marked tracks into dramatic and varied scenery (books, maps and guides are available). You'll hear little more than your footsteps and the sound of running water. For those who prefer to contemplate the mountains from an armchair rather than conquer them, there are open terraces, intimate corners of the garden or the sitting room with its open fire and views across the gorge. Needless to say you'll build up an appetite and a delicious, ample breakfast will get you off to a good start. For dinner, the neighbouring village (a 15 minute walk in the moonlight if you don't want to drive) has a couple of cosy restaurants or, for a wider choice, you can go further up the mountain to the other famous villages of the Alpujarra.

Casa Ana is the perfect place for a creative retreat. I loved everything about the place and the region. It's made for taking time out and focusing on your writing or any creative project. It's remote and cozy at the same time. I still can't get the wonderful breakfasts out of my mind and food in the nearby village. Also the owner Ana makes you feel at home from the first few minutes, and with memorable walks and untouched quality of the area, it's very hard to forget the great time I had there. Highly recommend you try it out too!!

We stayed at Casa Ana for 6 nights in March 2014 and could have stayed even longer. Met james2anne there, hello you two! The village of Ferreirola is at a dead end and it is so quaint and quiet, wonderful. Parking is a minute away from Anne's at the Church, the residential streets are so narrow you can't possibly park at the B&B. We were there in time for blossoming almond trees which were gorgeous. A family of 3, we booked two rooms, each had a private bath, one en suite and the other just outside the bedroom but enclosed within the same building so it was private. The rooms are cozy but we only slept in them because Anne has built a very pretty common sitting room on her courtyard for her guests. Views of the mountains, her central garden, small kitchenette with refrigerator, tea, coffee, cups, glasses, etc., a fireplace which we used several nights as it's still cool in March. A wonderful room which could accommodate a large group. The breakfasts were nice, nothing fancy but well done. Mostly, Anne, Steph and Cristof (sp?) were so friendly, funny, helpful, easy going that they made us feel like we were visiting friends. They even let my husband make "french toast" twice and dinner once. I loved that! We walked to dinner in the next town, Mecina, most nights - enjoying the quirky bar belonging to Carlos. Anne has great suggestions for restaurants, walks, other towns to visit, local artists. This was such a great place, thanks to Gail O for the recommendation and information.

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
