There's something about Andalucia's Alpuharran region that makes foreigners just want to settle in. Having read Gerald Brennan's and Chris Stewart's experiences I wanted a piece of the action, and the highest hotel in the highest village in Spain seemed like a good starting point. The resulting stay at La Fragua II was indeed a highlight. Maybe it was the mountain and valley view from our terrace, or the sound of the river lulling us to sleep. It might have been the wonderful fresh food prepared and served by a family who know how to provide low key Spanish hospitality. Perhaps it was the pool with the one of the best views I have ever had to swim in, or the excellent value for money that had me totting up just how long I could afford to stay if I did a Brennan and left the world behind me for a while. Whatever the reason, Trevelez (and La Fragua) was everything I had hoped for and more. On a practical note, concerns about access to the hotel are ridiculous unless you have a disability. People go to the Alpujarras to walk. Starting with a 300m walk from the carpark should not be a problem. If it is, you can ask the owner for a lift up or, if you're really brave, you can actually drive all the way with someone looking out for oncoming traffic. We did this on arrival but didn't bother on subsequent days because it really was very tricky. Do go to La Fragua if you are visiting this region. The only downside is that you really won't want to leave.
