    Small 3 star with big views

    by

    We had oridinally wanted to stay in Hotel Catifalarga but it was fully booked. However the owner recommended Finca Los Llanos which was perfect for a one night stay.

    At the end of the village on your left and opposite a cafe-bar on your right, Finca Los Llanos is a 3 star boasting 40 rooms, (so more chance of getting one if you are nomadically inclined like us!), a swimming pool (12' x 6') and a restaurant. We didn't use the pool as we got there so late, but it looked immaculately clean and inviting and the surrounding areas the same.

    There is a hotel lounge with library, advise on painting and riding courses and the like and some very pleasant terraces surrounded by walnut trees in which to sit and drink in the wonderful views.

    The bar is only open high season (it wasn't open at the end of May), but there is a friendly bar-cafe opposite the hotel (very good ice creams). The restaurant is a typically Spanish rustic affair with efficient service. There were mainly northern Europeans for company, all very relaxed and friendly. The hotel also offers picnics for treks and walks.

    The room was 64 euros for two including breakfast (plenty to eat for a good start to the day), the ensuite room with small balcony (a must with the views) and spotlessly clean. In fact, it was almost too clean as the bleach instantly set of my allergies. (I always take a pillow case to put over hotel pillow cases or I wake up with swollen eyes). The bleach was really over the top here, even Inspector Leaf commented on the towels making his eyes sting, that would be my only complaint.

    We had dinner in the restaurant which was the usual Spanish fayre (everything with jamon, even the trout!) and a good service. The restaurant is non-smoking as as Inspector Leaf and I still partake, the waiter came out to the terrace to discuss our desserts with us with a smile on his face.

    Highly recommended for a short stay.

    Unique Quality: Relaxed, fabulous views, clean and reasonably priced.

    Breakfast served until 10 am
    Reception 24 hrs
    Swimming pool 10am - 8 pm

    Directions: On the left coming out of the end of the village.

Painting Holidays

by amapola66

Although we didn't partake, Inspector Leaf and I definitely felt inclined to paint during our visit to Capileira. Below is a link to organised painting holidays there. Acommodation is in Finca Los Llanos (see my hotel tip). being that Capileira is situated so perfectly for painting and has the prfect chilled out, friendly vibe , I can think of no better place to spend a week painting, drawing , taking photographs and writing etc...A great spot to study, surrounded by natural inspiration and without the distractions of the rat race. The quality of light and surrounding views are superb, the village has enough bars and retsuarants for a short stay and even boasts a couple of art galleries.

The long and winding road...

by amapola66

"The road to Capileira"

After waking up at 3 am to catch the 6 am Monarch flight to Granada, 'Inspector Leaf' and I grabbed our hire car and headed down the highway out of Granada and into the Lecrin Valley.

First stop on our mini road trip, was Lanjarron, then a quick cana in Orgiva followed by the long windy climb up to Capileira.

After so little sleep the road seemed rather daunting with large drops on each side and often breaks in the crash barriers, however, the wonderful views easily made up for the nervous drive, it is absolutely beautiful up there.

As everywhere in Spain at the moment, new road surfaces are being laid and new roads being built left right and center, you really don't need a 4 x 4 and our little Purgeot easily made the trek.

Capileria itself (when we finally reached it!) is a pretty, charming little place surrounded by chestnut and fruit orchards and with the lovely sound of little natural springs bursting out and trickling down the mountainside. It's the second highest village in the Alpujarra, so it boasts spectacular views whichever way you look.

We were heading for Hotel Catifalarga who boast a 'surfaced road' up to their accomodation (hmmm!) and an evening of flamenco (Thursday nights). We were greeted by the charmingly eccentric Luis who told us he was fully booked - this was not in the plan! The problem was, we didn't have a plan - we were on a road trip and we hadn't booked anywhere, just going where the mood took us. It seemed that Hotel Catifalarga only had 4 rooms and a small apartment, all fully occupied that evening. We explained that we wanted to see the flamenco there that evening and he said no worries to come along around 10 pm even though we weren't staying. He recommended Finca Los Llanos (see my hotel tips) 5 mins down the hill, which had also been on our list of possibilities, so all was well.

We had a really fun short stay in Capileira. If you don't mind the long windy road up to the village, I would highly recommend it as a place to unwind, take in nature at its best, paint, write, ride, handglide and all such things...best of all, just do nothing and enjoy the being in such a place for no other reason than being alive.
