Quite simply, this was the best AirBNB experience I've ever had.
First and foremost, Patricia and her parents Tere and Miguel are amazing and wonderful people, and were the most generous hosts I've met. They took very good care of us throughout our stay, and made sure we lacked for nothing. This wasn't just practical help, but rather small gestures full of warmth that made us feel completely at home.
Second, the setting was perfect of rest and relaxation. I had been working in Madrid all week prior to arrival, and was somewhat stressed. Also, I was with my wife and 21-month-old son, who had been teething and somewhat grumpy. But everything about the house and village just allowed it all to melt away. The setting of the house is perfect, and it is surrounded by well tended gardens that we were free to explore. Also, the garden has wonderful views onto the surrounding mountains, and we would sit for long stretches just enjoying ourselves. At night it is completely quiet, and I have never slept so well in a long time. Also, the house is made by hand, and breathes very well.
Finally, I know Spain very well, having lived there many years, but had never been to the mountains. The air was fresh, the temperature perfect, the food excellent, and there were few if any signs of the "beer and sun" type of tourism of the Mediterranean coast (not that that doesn't also have its place!).
Thank you so much Patricia, Tere, and Miguel!!! Fue un gran placer conoceros!!
