- I was a little disappointed with the walks, which had some "trails" but featured too many roads, either tarmac or 4x4 stony mountain roads. I found the best walk to be the ascent of Cerro Verde which featured less road. The tapas lunches were very good and the visit to the wine bodega was excellent.
The accommodation was OK but the biggest travesty/misrepresentation associated with it was the so-called "paella cooking class", which was certainly not a class and was not even a demonstration, the "sofrito" having been precooked inside just to be brought outside to have the rice and stock added with neither explanation nor commentary. Oh, and there are no "views of the Spanish countryside", as claimed, since this happens in the village square surrounded on all four sides by buildings. To cap it all, the result was undoubtedly the poorest paella I have ever eaten (rice under-cooked, not "al dente" but chalky).
