El Burgo is a very traditional Spanish town - you will need your phrase book! However, it's very friendly and you have everything you need there. The house is ideal, central to the village centre, a good size and all you need for a basic holiday. The surrounding area is fantastic for mountains - walking, cycling, running. We had amazing weather and often had the hills to ourselves. I cannot recommend this place enough if you want to be outdoors in beautiful countryside and have a comfortable base to return to.
