Just a couple of hours drive from Marbella, between the monumental city of Granada and the majestic Sierra Nevada is the Sierra Nevada National Park. The park is a truly great landscape, just half an hour from downtown Granada, ideal for hiking, riding your bike or just relaxing. We were lucky to find a charming hotel, El Balcon de las Nieves, were we felt happy. Lovely rooms, sunny and clean, comfortable settees and armchairs, and on top a great breakfast. On top, should you travel without your dog ( dogs are welcome to stay with you) the hotel’s own two dogs are happy to walk you through the park. After a twenty minutes’ walk from the hotel, a mountain lodge awaits you.
La Fuente del Hervidero is one of those places in Spain where the time has stopped about a hundred years ago, with a small dining room, a large chimney and home cooked food, the perfect place for a romantic meal.
