The
Experience

In splendid isolation, high in the Sierra Tejeda National Park, Edward’s extraordinary old home reflects his travels and his eccentricity. You’ll be in sync if you too rate walking or mountain biking from the door over luxury bathrooms. He divides his time between Brazil and Spain; if he’s away, a local couple will guide you the last five or so kilometres of dirt track that lead to this classic Andalusian cortijo with its fabulous mountain views. Not posh rustic rooms – up steps and down passageways, so best be nimble – are on all sides surrounding the big, central courtyard; great to sit out there in the evening, under citrus trees, by the pool… and there are another two, on the south side. Life here tends to be lived outdoors but there’s a large dining room off the family kitchen; smaller living area are dotted about. Furnishings everywhere are a quirky mix of family/collected on travels/re and up-cycled: the feel is of things having evolved rather than designed. Stock-up on supplies in nearby, charming, Alhama de Granada. It’s down in the gorge, not touristy with bars and hot springs. A great escape.
