I have just returned from another relaxing stay at La Cortanela. The weather was unexpectedly warm and sunny, and though the pool looked inviting, I wasn't brave enough for late October so I enjoyed a game of boules instead on Chris and Tricia's new 'boule court'. Such fun. The gardens are really maturing and look great now - and picking and eating fresh figs from the trees was a great treat.
Indoors the decor is clean, fresh and open. This year the guest suite has been freshened, the decor lightened and the bedding is new and great quality. Huge fluffy towels, a sunny private patio, amazing breakfasts, free wi-fi, fabulous views and countryside to die for... I didn't want to come home. La Cortanela is a special place. I'll be back.
