The Psychedelic Clarinet player and I, were the only two people to go for a walk on Sunday afternoon after a few days partying and not much excercise - he he. We made it up to the village of Villanueva (i think!) with a bit of a puff and a struggle, but were rewarded at the top where we found a little tapas bar, (I think it was called Bar Tomas). We had a few canas, some rather good artichoke hearts, a friendly welcome and were given a pen (with a calender in it) and a wall calender. All of this cost us the totally extortionate price of 1 euro 80 cents - Amazing!
Seems like time stood still here, the only signs that Christmas was approaching, was the extra large bags of Jamons all over the place - wonderful.
We were at El Molino in December so it was cold at night. There is a lovely lounge with tv, dvd etc for the cooler winter evenings or to keep the kids amused while the adults are chatting. The litte guest house attached to the villas also has tv/dvds and more. Both houses have stereos and a variety of cds for all tastes, along with films, toys and alot of good books.
There is also information and (rather basic I must say!) maps of local walks and places to explore.
Outside, there is a lovely shaded deck by a pool (which I don't seem to have photographer), all surrounded by lovely gardens. There are alot of nooks and crannies to find a quiet spot if you fancy some time by yourself and also a swing for the children which is down by a gurgling stream.
Birdwatching is anotehr pastime...We saw a few parrots flying around the garden!
Mt favourite time was spent cloud watching - he he a place to suitably chill-out!
At El Molino del Conde, there is a huge wooden table that can seat 21 people comfortably.
We ate in every night around that wonderful wooden table. The kitchen was well kitted out for large groups and thanks to Uncle Dread's Mum, Sister & Sister in Law, we were all banned from the kitchen until food was ready. Totally spolit!
