Pleasant and knowlegeable owner who gives good advice with respect to hiking, comfortable beds, good breakfast, great location and a view that can't be surpassed. But, wifi is weak and there is no common room for the costumers (like a living room or a reading room, for example). Obviously this is no issue when the warm weather and the outside... More

I only stayed one night during my hike along the GR7 trail but I really had an enjoyable stay and would certainly come again – especially the breakfast is just amazing and certainly the best on my whole trip through Portugal and Spain. Main Pros: - Very friendly Belgium owners; relaxed family-like atmosphere - Clean and spacious rooms with nice... More

We stayed in El Paraje 4 nights during our hiking trip in the area and would have stayed more if we did not have to go on to Granada. The house is like Eden if you like being in nature. Brenda is a great host and very knowledgeable about the area, hiking and many other things. We felt like home... More

Brenda runs a great operation, and the El Paraje is a great choice for people seeking a base for exploration of the White Villages. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well appointed. The meals (breakfasts and the optional dinners) are very high quality. Breakfast includes a large variety of fresh fruit, an egg dish, granola, yogurt, breads, meat and cheese.... More

We are from the West of Ireland and stayed Casa Rural El Paraje early last year. This is the real B&B experience with very hard working people with fabulous views of the Southern Slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Very nice and comfortable hotel in a rural environment. Brenda Bussche-Markey does a remarkeble job there! Do enjoy her cooking and you won't regret it. She can give good advise on all sorts of topics, such as hiking.
