Staying with Angel and Lucy was a real treat. Lucy is a great cook, dinner is served with a sunset view and Angel is very passionate and knowledgeable about the area – he can speak about everything from olive oil and Iberian ham to fantastic little restaurants in nearby villages and the best tracks for hiking or running in the hills. We couldn't have felt more welcome, and Angel and Lucy really were a great help in pointing out all the best things to do, see and eat in the area.
Alajar is a very pretty and charming little village too, and the posada really is a fantastic place to stay – easy walking distance from the town square and still you get to spend those long, tranquil, warm afternoons in a wonderful garden with a pool and a view.
We went in the second half of September 2013, which was a great time to be there.
All in all, highly recommended!
