We were four couples, friends who decided to share New Year's Eve somewhere different. We were told about this very friendly hotel in Cazorla, high in the hills of the province of Jaen in Spain. We travelled there on 30th December and were warmly greeted by the delightful owner, Mercedes, and shown to our rooms. Ours was large with a balcony overlooking the unending expanse of olive trees below. We had comfortable easy chairs in front of the TV and a well-appointed bathroom. The single beds were very comfortable. Everything was spotless. It was the start of a New Year to remember. The dining room had a big log fire which added to the atmosphere. The food was excellent and plenty of it. The snacks and drinks were continuous and Mercedes seemed to have unbounded energy and a great sense of humour. We saw the New Year in with an Irish family and two young Spanish couples who went off to look up Auld Lang Syne on the internet when they had sung it with us. The stay was over all too soon and it was like parting with an old friend when we took our leave of Mercedes. I don't think any of us came back any lighter than when we arrived but no-one cared. I have no hesitation in recommending Finca Mercedes to anyone who enjoys good food and drink and served by a delightful hostess. We hope to return in the spring when the views from the balconies can be enjoyed to the full.
