“Excellent base for a walking holiday”
Reviewed 9 April 2010

A group of 10 of us stayed at Casa Carrascal for a 3 day walking holiday, organised by the owners Sue and David. We all had a fabulous time, with excellent food and service, and very comfortable accommodation. Came away feeling we had been house guests, and would certainly highly recommend.

This is the first time we had visited this area of Spain. We were on a weeks walking holiday and were pleasantly surprised just how green everything was, with acres and acres of orange groves and much more.

Sue and David made us feel very welcome. Their hotel is old Spanish style and a unique experience. Cosy restaurant with its wood burner stove, excellent food and good company. At the end of the week we left feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Sue and David planned our guided walks, which we enjoyed thoroughly and we could not have asked for more.

Do not hesitate to visit this hidden gem in rural Spain - you will not regret it.

Many thanks

The excellent service began with Dave collecting us from the airport and continued throughout our stay.
Casa Carrascal is a beautiful small hotel in the heart of the quaint village of Parcent. Both Sue & Dave made our stay enjoyable with their excellent food and hospitality.
They shared their expert knowledge of the local walking and events, which allowed us to make the most of our holiday.
We would recommend Casa Carrascel both as a resturant and hotel.

This was a unique opportunity to experience the fabulously unspoilt Jalon Valley with exceptionally knowledgeable guides David and Sue.
Their personal touch extended from early morning breakfasts to guiding us through their hidden Spain both coastal and inland.Topping this with preparing and serving delicious food in the evenings. Their comfortable village hotel enabled us to truly embrace rural life and watching the locals playing Pelote in the street below almost made up for the diasppointment of missing Man Utd thrash Spurs. I recommend that you book directly for that personal touch.

Just returned from our first trip to Spain staying at Casa Carrascal with our excellent hosts David and Sue. We had searched for a rural location to celebrate a wedding aniversary and enjoy our favourite pastime of walking and came up with the ideal package. Our hosts met us at Alicante airport (waiting for us at the arrivals gate even though the plane arrived early!) then drove us to Parcent just an hour away. What a delightful village with the hotel situated in the very centre. The walking routes were spectacular and varied and we were so glad we took Sue's advice when booking to walk all the routes with their guidance. Although the lanscape is beautiful there are no maps suitable for unguided walking. Following trails is very challenging especially higher up in the mountains. Without their help we would not have found the most spectacular views and features in the area. And after all the day's exercise what better way to recharge than with David's excellent cooking washed down with local wines. All in all a very memorable and enjoyable holiday. Thanks David and Sue, we hope to be back soon.

We have stayed previously at Casa Carrascal, a birthday present for my husband, and were so impressed we came back for dinner whilst on holiday this time, this time taking our 7 year old son and were not disappointed. Situated in a beautiful Spanish village, the ambience is peaceful, relaxing, elegant and unhurried. The service is second to none, and the food simply delicious. Our son was very well catered for with smaller portions of the main menu and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Nothing is too much trouble and Sue and her family are the perfect hosts. We will return! Sue, Chris and George

We didn't actually stay at Casa Carrascal, we were staying at Sue and David's Villa, but decided to visit the restaurant which was only a short drive from Calpe where the Villa is located.

What a perfect night we had, infact it was so good we went back again the following week. Parcent itself is one of the prettiest 'real' spanish villages we have been to in a long while and with Carrascal being bang in the centre of the village it made it perfect, eating you food in a peaceful setting with the sound of the church bells ringing in the background.

A very relaxing evening, a small restaurant which means you are not forgotten when it comes to ordering etc.

Finally I cannot praise the food highly enough, we (4 adults and 2 kids), have not been treat to food like that for a very long time. I felt guilty just paying the 20 euro a head for the four courses and a half bottle of wine.

Seriously, if you are not staying at the hotel but staying anywhere near Parcent and like the real Spanish surroundings and quality food then pay this place a visit.
