Life in an Alpujarran Village by Tremblay, 21 Feb 2018

Great walking and a fascinating cultural experience

We stayed for five nights at Las Chimenaes in Mairena on the southern foothills of the Sierra Nevada which was the base for some lovely walks, followed each day by delicious local food. Our hosts, David & Emma Illsley, brought the rich history and customs of the area to life and their local knowledge was invaluable. We then had two fascinating days in Granada which included an excellent guided tour of the Alhambra.

We organised our own flights, but everything else was arranged through Inntravel. They have deep and accurate local knowledge, everything went smoothly and the holiday more than exceeded our expectations.

Rural Live in an Alpujarran Village

Great weather, varied variety of scenery and vegetation encountered on our walks. Warm welcome and excellent home-cooked food. Mairena and the surrounding villages are gems and relatively untouched by Tourism. Looking forward to our next Inntravel Experience.

A great experience in a wonderful location and very efficient arrangements

A self guided walking holiday in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in southern Spain. The walking was very well planned by Inntravel with a wide variety of routes suggested, and in accommodation that more than lived up to expectations.

Inntravel: all arrangements and plans worked very efficiently from the very helpful and efficient first booking contact through to the very comprehensive holiday file that we received well in advance of traveling in spite of all our arrangements being fairly last minute.

Spring sunshine in the Alpujarras

We took a break from Northern winters in the Alpujarras, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The weather was wonderful (15-20 C), and the almond blossom was amazing. We had daily walks which we could select from detailed walking notes provided by the hotel, and a selection of activities organised by the hotel owners (cooking demonstrations, a trip to Almeria, a visit to their finca). The hotel owners were friendly and helpful, very knowledge...

The original booking went very smoothly. Then the airline (which we had booked independently) changed the schedule, forcing us to change our dates. Inntravel weren't fazed in the slightest by this, and changed the booking the same day. They were efficient, helpful and friendly all the time, and did exactly what they'd promised to do - which is very unusual these days, unfortunately. I would recommend Inntravel to anybody.

This is a favourite time of ours to visit southern Spain - as you say, the almond blossom is unbelievably beautiful, especially in the sunshine. We're glad that the weather cooperated for your winter-sun holiday!
