We stayed here for three nights and it made a fantastic restful end to our touring holiday of Andalucía.
We stayed in Arizona which is the last suite in the row of 4 with a wonderful large deck. We found the suites to be well stocked with everything that you could need a for a short stay, right down to a shady sun hat for those long siestas!
The fridge is loaded with fresh fruit, juice, water, beer, cheese, ham and the most amazing marmalade that just tasted of sunshine...so good we had to buy some to take home! Each morning Angus bought fresh croissant and bread and anything else that needed topping up,at a pre-arranged time.
The setting is idyllic and peaceful with mountain views that take your breath away and at night brilliant clear starry skies and just a couple of pinpricks of light on the opposite hillside. If you can bear to tear yourself away they have provided a number of suggested routes for short drives and lunch stops which were a great idea .
We ate in the restaurant each evening , beautiful food with unusual but sensational flavour combinations , piping hot plates (a personal bugbear if plates aren't warm, so full marks here) excellent service from Angus front of house and the rest of the family behind the scenes and great value from the DB&B package.
We'll definitely return and a 40 minute easy drive to Malaga airport means this would be a really great trip for a long weekend when we need to re-charge our batteries .
We loved Fountainhead and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it if you love peace, quiet relaxation and super food.
