Berry and Irene Schmidt From: Sassenheim, Nederland

We didn’t meet and only had very nice contact by email, but our 4 day stay at the almond cortijo was wonderful. It feels a bit strange to walk into a house when nobody is around but David came to say Hello and so we knew that we could contact him if we had questions.
We enjoyed every minute of those 4 days. The weather was sunny at daytime and cold when the sun set. It felt so good to have breakfast sitting on the wall of the terrace in the sun and look in the distance and hear nothing except a cuckoo. The cosy almond cortijo felt like a warm coat and the nights were so quiet and dark. We have slept very well.
But most of all we felt so relaxed, reading a book, swimming in the swimming pool, watching the tomtit ( small bird with a yellow breast ) who had made a nest in one of the three pots above the door and was busy to feed the yong ones.
The tip to go early to the Alhambra was a good one. We didn’t have any trouble to get a ticket and is was a great experience.
We did some nice walks and the Alpujarras are really beautiful during this time of the year with all the flowers.
I am sure that this stay will not be the last and that one day we will return and enjoy the Alpujarras and the Cortijos Rey Fini again.
Hope to meet you and your family then,
Regards Berry and Irene
