After a grueling year of work in NYC we wanted to go to Spain but NOT a big city. We spent 6 days there; (longer than we'd planned but it was just so GREAT!). The location is excellent, with cute villages to visit all around while driving on scary but beautiful winding mountain roads. The rooms and the whole house are BEAUTIFULLY designed, with heavy handmade furniture and tiled bathrooms.
When we decided to self-cater we were fully expecting to have to compromise with a fairly basic kitchen setup. We were happily surprised to find a brand new, fully equipped kitchen stocked with every utensil we needed. Cooking dinner and watching the moon rise over the really breathtaking mountains was so amazing.
Stuart and Polly, the owners, are really, really nice and know when to let you be alone and are also extremely welcoming. We spent a very fun evening with them. We absolutely recommend staying at Finca El Abuelo.
