There's something about Andalucia's Alpuharran region that makes foreigners just want to settle in. Having read Gerald Brennan's and Chris Stewart's experiences I wanted a piece of the action, and the highest hotel in the highest village in Spain seemed like a good starting point. The resulting stay at La Fragua II was indeed a highlight. Maybe it was the mountain and valley view from our terrace, or the sound of the river lulling us to sleep. It might have been the wonderful fresh food prepared and served by a family who know how to provide low key Spanish hospitality. Perhaps it was the pool with the one of the best views I have ever had to swim in, or the excellent value for money that had me totting up just how long I could afford to stay if I did a Brennan and left the world behind me for a while. Whatever the reason, Trevelez (and La Fragua) was everything I had hoped for and more. On a practical note, concerns about access to the hotel are ridiculous unless you have a disability. People go to the Alpujarras to walk. Starting with a 300m walk from the carpark should not be a problem. If it is, you can ask the owner for a lift up or, if you're really brave, you can actually drive all the way with someone looking out for oncoming traffic. We did this on arrival but didn't bother on subsequent days because it really was very tricky. Do go to La Fragua if you are visiting this region. The only downside is that you really won't want to leave.

Here is what you should know before booking at La Fragua II:
- the hotel is located in the Barrio Medio, which means almost in the upper part of the village, and the car park is really not easily accessible (the streets are very narrow). In other words, what looks like a lovely village becomes a nightmare when you have to carry your bags from the most accessible car park to the hotel, and at night when you have to walk back up to the hotel. In comparison, the "Pepe Alvarez" hotel is located on main street, with parking space just out the door.
- the hotel is very noisy: customers slam their door instead of using the key. You hear every noise from the other rooms (shower, toilet flush, voices).
- Double rooms only have 2 simple beds.
- The breakfast is not a buffet: if you ask for another cup of coffee, it with be charged.

Spent 3 nights at La Fragua 11 as part of a hiking holiday in the Alpujarras. Loved the position of the hotel, the size of the rooms - enormous - and the view of Mt Penabon from the balcony. Best nights sleep I had all week as it is so peaceful and the air so clean. Even the mountain storm on the last day could not detract from it's appeal - in fact watching it from the safety of the room was an adventure in itself!
