So many thoughtful details here on the hillside – it’s welcoming, unpretentious and really conveys the love Sue and Ben have for Spain – and India. On the ground floor find the living/dining room and kitchen, open plan so everybody can join in with cooking under the vaulted ceiling. Upstairs is another living area, kitchenette and the twin bedrooms; on the top floor you have two more en suite doubles, accessed via separate exterior staircases – super for those wanting more privacy.
La Vall de Santa Creu is fascinating. The village square where folk used to do their washing and collect their spring water is still the beating heart of the place for celebrations and fiestas. Not much has changed in its rambling streets as it is protected by being in a National Park.
Wander to the village restaurant which has a pleasant garden for eating outdoors; there may be a concert or an exhibition on at the new cultural centre afterwards. Walk to the beach or drive five minutes and you’re in the bustling port with bobbing boats and colourful fishing nets, plus diving, snorkelling and windsurfing.
