“Beautiful, serene spot for relaxation and the perfect base for day trips!” La Amapola exceeded our expectations and was the perfect spot to spend our honeymoon! We enjoyed having a fully-serviced kitchen to prepare our own meals and loved having a private patio (partially shaded with grape vines) to enjoy our meals, a glass of wine, and a good book. The grocery store, bakery, butcher shop, and pubs in Gor (a 5 minute walk) had everything that we needed. With quick access to the highway, trips to Granada and the ocean were easy. Local attractions, such as Lake Negratin, are also must-sees. Marc and Sam are wonderful hosts -- always friendly, very knowledgeable about the local area, and eager to involve guests in cultural activities. Great value!
“Beautiful place, lovely hosts!” When I found La Mariposa on this site I thought it looked really quaint and would make a lovely getaway for my partner and I, the reviews about Mark and Sam were all great too which encouraged me to book. When we arrived I have to say I was really surprised at just how beautiful the place was, the photos do not do it justice, Mark and Sam have done an incredible job renovating. The village is really nice, very traditional, and we went on some fantastic walks in Sierra Nevada which is only about 1 hours drive. All in all it was a lovely trip and we would happily go back. (have marked the directions as average as we drove there late at night and got lost, would probably just advise a sat-nav if you arrive in the evening and don't know the area)
