Sierra Nevada and Granada

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The final day's walk - a circular walk from the hotel which gives you fantastic views across the valley back to Berchules. Although it is the most taxing walk, it is not too much hard work and it is worth it for the views from the other side of the valley.

What did you think of your group leader?

George has a passion for the local area and his knowledge is second to none given he has lived in the area for over ten years. He was also very good at making sure people of mixed abilities were catered for on all the walks.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

The afternoon in Granada was very rushed, just too much to try and fit in. Therefore, if you are thinking of extending your holiday I would recommend an extra night or two in Granada for sightseeing.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Overall, it was a very good holiday and a complete contrast to the busy beach resorts in the Costas. It is worth emphasising just how good the hotel in Berchules is. Officially, it is a two star (presumably due to lack of air conditioning - which wasn't a problem for us in September). However, the quality of service and food is top class.
