We so enjoyed Piedras Enciso and Laroles. Such an amazing little house & wonderful garden. Our kids loved getting back to nature & so did we. Highly recommended!
Easy dealing with Nicky who was charming and helpful during our stay. The location up in the mountains was idyllic and the evenings on the terrace refreshing given the heat of the day.
Peaceful, secluded, unique house in the mountains.
This really is an out-of-way place to stay ; after just a week we came away refereshed and thoroughly rested. The house is a very calm space, with a minimum of 'modern comforts' but nevertheless really comfortable with thoughtful touches - traditional tableware, luxurious seating, a splendid wood fire, hot spring water to wash in, nothing plastic! No internet or telly, but ample entertainment with friendly geckos, birdsong and fascinating views. Lots of books, games, maps and info available about this remote region. During the day the terrace is alive with bees and birds, the smell of lavender and ripe figs. At night solar lighting creates a miniature wonderland in which to sit and watch the bats and the bright stars. We enjoyed walking in the valley, through the almond groves, exploring terraces and ancient acequias. We saw ibex, birds of prey and many rare and aromatic wild plants. The mountain looked different every day with changing light and dramatic clouds.There is some farming going on, the sound of sheep bells, and terraces of vegetables, but at dusk everyone goes home and you literally have the whole of the valley to yourselves. The silence, fresh mountain air and delightful plunge pool, with accompanying ( rather decadent !) day bed, all combine to create a perfect retreat. Nicky is a great host, taking the time to meet us in person and guide us up to the property. The table was piled with bowls of fruit, nuts and honey, ecological wine and flowers from the garden. We could not have been made more welcome. If you like silence, a sense of space, and relish the opportunity to explore a unique and ancient landscape, then you'll enjoy it here. Places like this are hard to find!
A Heavenly Week with the Family
What an idyllic time we had at this beautiful house in the countryside.
We were met by Nicky in the nearby village, and she guided us along the long and bumpy track to the house.
You can see the years of love and work that have been poured in to the house and garden to make it what it is today - a little piece of heaven.
Nicky's generous nature shines through. We greatly appreciated the beautiful welcome gifts of fruits, snacks, local honey and wine.
Staying here is about changing the pace of your life. Slowing down. Noticing every sound, scent and scene from nature. I was so enthralled I didn't even manage to get to the end of a single book.
The weather was perfect. Shady spots under the arbour and the pool bring instant relief during the hottest hours of the day.
On a practical note, there is plenty of hot water from the gas boiler, and a gas fridge with a small freezer box, keeps food fresh. There are LED lamps in each of the rooms, but the system trips out if too many are used at once. There were lots of candles, to give an atmospheric boost, once it got dark.
We walked along the footpath (the walk of the chestnuts) about a mile and half, to the bakery and supermarkets of Laroles, when we didn't fancy bringing the hire car along the track again. Harder work on the way back up, but so worth it for the incredible views.
Our son, aged 22 and daughter 19 stayed with us, and loved it as much as we did. We are all hoping to come back again, and can't recommend it enough.
Thank you for everything Nicky xx
A great place to reconnect with nature
If you really want to get away from the hectic living for some time and reconnect with nature, then there is no better place than this. We've spent a wonderful 2 weeks here and never felt better about a holiday stay than here. Thanks a lot Nicky and Enrique for sharing this wonderful little paradise.
Thank you both! It was a joy to meet you and be able to share our quiet corner of Las Alpujarras. That you felt the benefits of what the cottage has to offer is what we want for our guests, so we are more than delighted!! We hope to see you both again.
Very nice place to stay for a week or so.
Nice house, with a very fine small pool. Surrounding mountain area is great for walking.
House tends to get a bit moist after a week of intensive use as it has few windows, but overall a nice place.
