This was a trip to the little two person villa just be the entrance to the land.
It was actually a few years before 2010, but I doubt much has changed since then.
The best memories were the quiet and watching the birds soaring over the cliffs at the top of the mountain, and a fantastic adventure travelling around the National Park.
Wonderful private swimming pool screened so we could swim naked.
We went in mid September, after the schools were back, and so it was quiet.
This was our first introduction to rural Spain and it made a deep impression - can't wait to get back, although this year doing a "Rick Stein" in a camper.
Good memories from really making the effort and getting involved with the locals in the towns.
Not such good memories of the lumpiest and most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept it - something which I expect has bene fixed a long time ago. The dirt road was fun.
We didn't make much use of the shared sport facilities, but we were only there for a week.
