"I have just returned from an amazing holiday in Las Alpujarras, staying at the timeless and sublime Casa Ana, in the village of Ferreirola, nestled in the heart of the mountains of this historically important and beautiful area of southern Spain… I loved it so much that I've just booked a return to see the spring flowers."
Carole R, October 2017
"Casa Ana is situated in a small, quiet, unspoiled village with outstanding views and easy access for walking. The accommodation has been tastefully restored. Our room was on ground level (ideal for disabled visitors) clean and well appointed. The food was excellent with attention to detail. We would certainly recommend it."
Averil B, October 2017
"Casa-Ana is comfortable, spacious, relaxed and peaceful. It was the perfect place, well away from it all and with lovely gardens, plenty of places to sit and gaze at the mountains, watch the butterflies and listen to the birds. We had delicious food, including home made marmalade and orange juice from the tree outside room 10 at breakfast! I loved it - I'm going back in October."
Debbie B, July 2017
"This small village nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains is full of surprises. Wonderful scenery is of course the first thing that hits you: breathtaking mountains, glimpses of the sea in the distance and then Casa Ana itself - secluded and peaceful with a shady rose filled garden and wonderful terraces to relax on and take in the view - a true getaway from the hustle and bustle."
Emma H, June 2017
"The setting, the service and the friendliness of all the staff make this a place I would return to again and again."
Janet T, June 2017
"It’s a stunning tranquil place and I'll be certainly returning there. Ana and the team make the whole stay much more comfortable than many places I have visited before."
Slava S, May 2017
"Charming room with doors onto gorgeous terrace with amazing views. Pretty tiled bathroom ensuite with fantastic shower.
The food was locally sourced and professionally prepared. Home made bread, local goats cheese and home made quince jelly just one delicious breakfast option.
For cooler evenings, wonderful fireplace in the sitting room."
Rachel M, March 2017
"What I liked best about Casa Ana, and there is a list, includes its architectural aesthetics, comfort and style of the accommodation, the gourmet food, the generous service… Casa Ana is located on a mountain ridge with close views of one of the Alpajurra mountains. There is a wonderful shaded deck to commune on. There are many wonderful surprises even outside of the lovely Casa Ana accommodation. The small Spanish village Casa Ana is located in provides echoes of other times, simple living, and community. The mountains that are dry but soft to the eye fall away to the most beautiful rivers."
Michelle S, August 2016
"Anne has developed Casa Ana into what can only be described as installation art - a sympathetic and creative fusion of traditional Moorish architecture with modern and elegant facilities."
John S, July 2016
"The isolation and beauty of the location couldn't have been more inspiring. The views are out of this world…for anyone wanting peace, beauty and walking this is the place."
Alana, June 2016
"A wonderful secluded and inspiring little retreat in the small village of Ferreirola in La Taha - if you want somewhere to relax Casa Ana is ideally located amongst the mountains of the Alpujarras in rural Spain. The breakfasts are great too!"
Sarah, April 2016
"The room was comfortable and simple. Everything you needed and everything worked. Breakfasts were delicious and healthy. Casa Ana was lovely with breathtaking views in a peaceful setting. A perfect base for walking in the Alpujarras."
Pauline, April 2016
"The rooms are tastefully decorated and comfy and offer different options- twin, single, double with ensuite or shared bathrooms. The terrace and gardens are beautiful with lovely views. An inspirational place."
Jo, March 2016
"This place is beautiful and in Feb the mix of almond blossom, oranges, deserted paths, idyllic villages and tasteful accommodation is hard to beat. Anne has created a great oasis in the hills… A fantastic place for a relaxing holiday with plenty of low key walking and high quality accommodation."
Ian, February 2016
"Casa Ana is utterly charming and seems to inspire a peaceful feeling as you sit relaxing and soaking up the views and surrounding countryside. Highly recommended."
Darren K, October 2015
"A delightful very old sensitively converted house in the pretty village of Ferreirola. My room was perfect opening on to a terrace with fabulous mountain views."
Michael, August 2015
"The Casa itself is beautiful, and has been lovingly and sympathetically restored... Anne and the staff couldn't possibly be any friendlier. The surroundings are also stunning."
Lynne C, July 2015
"You walk into an attractive courtyard to a warm greeting by Anne, hostess, and you take it from there. Lovely quiet location overlooking the Taha Valley, a real gem of a place. The views are quite breathtaking, and the accommodation very comfortable."
Anthony S, June 2015
"Peace, tranquility and stunning views, superb food and good company... Exploring the unspoiled mountain villages and walking the trails is an unforgettable experience, we will be back for more."
Steevie B, May 2015
"As you open the door off the narrow white-walled street you enter a lovely, peaceful garden. Off this is a ziggurat of simple rooms, a cat asleep on a garden chair, various secret patios where you can sit and contemplate the view of the Sierra Nevada, birdsong and the intoxicating smells of jasmine and mock-orange."
Jeremy V, May 2015
"I have been coming to Casa Ana for a few years now and it just gets better every time... I had time to relax in the sunshine, watch the almond blossom bloom and doze off to the sound of goat bells in the distance. I will, of course, be going back."
Mairi W, March 2015
"A perfect, tranquil, welcoming home to come back to from our wonderful sunny walks around the Alpujarras."
Lindsay J., November 2014

Hugh K., October 2014
"Having had a great day out, returning to Casa Ana was a super end to the day. The views … across the valley were wonderful. Watching the moon rise between the hills at night was a great experience."
Steve H., September 2014
"Casa Ana is an excellent base for exploring the Alpujarra mountains, with lots of info' about walks and other trips. Would definitely recommend for a relaxed, off the beaten track holiday."
Pam R., September 2014

Katie F, May 2014
"Anne has great suggestions for restaurants, walks, other towns to visit, local artists. This was such a great place."
Shing H., March 2014
"For those who prefer to contemplate the mountains from an armchair rather than conquer them, there are open terraces, intimate corners of the garden or the sitting room with its open fire and views across the gorge."
