What a better plan than to spend the weekend in the country side. On the foot of the snow covered peaks of Sierra Nevada lies the charming village of Güejar Sierra, just a little over two hours’ drive from Marbella. It is an ideal base for hiking, breathing the fresh mountain air or visiting Granada, just half an hour away. And tapas in the village are a must: just order a glass of wine or beer and you will be served a large cooked tapa free of charge. We stayed at a lovely bed and breakfast run by a Dutch couple called Arroyo de la Greda, cozy, warm with a great view and substantial breakfast.
