1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Very hard to choose: the kind welcome, the beautiful countryside and riot of almond blossom, the delicious food, the charming and relaxed interior decor, all the laughs we had....

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The drive from Malaga is beautiful, but feels very long when you've had to catch a flight early in the morning. Granada is closer... Also, tiled floors are very cool. DO tell Emma, David, Jill or Andrew if you need/want something - their service-mindedness seemed to know no bounds! I was glad to have brought my walking sticks, particularly for going down slopes of shingle or scree.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local people seem to benefit a bit financially. However, the cheerful welcome we received as we walked around the village makes me think they also like having these odd Brits around. Environmentally, good initiatives like solar-heated water (careful - it's burning hot!), local produce and home-grown vegetables are coupled with carefully arranged car-sharing and taking in sights on the way. Supported conservation in the sense that Emma and David aim to preserve traditional ways of doing things as much as possible.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Great! I loved the place (Alpujarras and Los Chimeneas), the atmosphere and the walking and was lucky to be there with a lovely group of people. Thank you, Emma, David and co, and be warned: I'll be back!
