“Just perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

What could be better to be collected from Granada, two hours away by car, and taken to your place of stay by your charming hosts, Emma and David. Las Chimeneas is a collection of houses around a square, each with very individual rooms. The dining room and a separate sitting room are only a matter of yards away. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, the dining room full of character and with an excellent varied menu. So much of the food was locally sourced or home made. The village is perfectly situated for walking or just relaxing. The views are panoramic, the atmosphere relaxing. Our hosts could not have been more hospitable or helpful. A hidden gem!

We have just returned from a very relaxing 7 night stay at Las Chimeneas.
We were lucky to enjoy sunshine every day and temperatures in the high 20’s (not hot for Emma and David but a real treat for us, having left a very chilly Scotland behind!). Our room was spacious and comfortable with a panoramic view from the balcony. We even had a chorus of frogs to lull us to sleep at night!

Emma and David were attentive hosts, providing lots of information on walks and activities in the area. We especially enjoyed David’s evening tour of their finca – learning about some of the complexities of managing the various crops and being lucky to hear nightingales as we strolled up the terraces.

Meals were a real treat – Soledad produces wonderful rustic local dishes from locally sourced ingredients (some from Emma & David’s own finca), and there is a good selection of local wines to complement the meals. We have tried to decide on our favourite dishes of the week but the variety and quality of each dish makes this a difficult task – but I will definitely try to make a version of the almond soup which was very refreshing after a hot days walking, and the quail was exceptionally tasty!
Thank you to Gill & Cathy for their service with a smile even when the kitchen was hot and the restaurant busy!

We have very happy memories of walks in the stunning Alpujarran countryside enjoying the aroma of the various herbs and flowers along the way and settling in the shade of a chestnut tree to enjoy the feast of Soledad’s carefully wrapped picnic whilst watching a river tumble below and listening to the birdsong. Sensory heaven!

Enjoyed two amazing meals at Las Chimeneas, whilst staying at our own house in the village of Mairena. The food and wine was excellent and the ambience was perfect. Great value for money. Thank you Soledad, Emma and Andrew for two lovely evenings

This was a very enjoyable stay. David and Emma are very attentive and engaging hosts with plenty of information and suggestions on local treks of various levels of ambition. They referred us to a local bodega (wine producer) where we had a extremely enjoyable tour over a relaxed few hours sampling some very good wines. The rooms were very nice with many attractive design features and great views. Double beds were adequate but not large. The restaurant was excellent with very high quality, well-prepared meals at reasonable prices.

I have just completed the most excellent enjoyable week walking west for 4 days from Las Chimineas Mairena to Trevelez with my eldest daughter. Emma and David gave us notes and some excellent tips and map and booked us into ideal little hotels on the way and delivered our luggage to each location so that we just had day packs. Then we were re picked up and had such a lovely Easter weekend with absolutely delicious food and a relaxed and excellent 'foraging' trip out to their Finca on Sunday. Las Chimineas is not plush but better than that - absolutely tasteful relaxing, comfortable and delightful offering us every comfort we could think of. I can't think of a holiday I have enjoyed more.

We just spent an outstanding week in David and Emma's beautiful inn in the tiny village of Mairena. The views form our terrace were breathtaking, the food is local and simple yet gourmet, the inn is a perfect combination of antique and modern. The surrounding country is so stunning and the lifestyle is so simple, that to spend time as Las Chimeneas is spend time in heaven.

I stayed at Las Chimeneas for three nights in February and feel very fortunate to have spent a few days in such a beautiful location and among such good company.
The casa rural is a home from home, with a relaxing front room, log fire, kitchen, honesty bar and comfortable, quiet, clean rooms with stunning views across the mountains. The sheltered sun terrace is a nice place to relax with a book or just watch the world go by.
Hosts David and Emma are so welcoming and happy to suggest walks to take and places to see, and the food is just outstanding (and plentiful!).
There are endless options for walks in panoramic scenery through almond terraces and following waterways, and a spot of group yoga one morning helped to ease any post-walk aching limbs.
Thanks all for a lovely short break in the sunshine.
