Walking from Casa Ana - reviews

"We’re already planning our return …The Taha valley, a walker’s paradise where even the faint-hearted need have no fears: just bring adequate boots and clothing…. Casa Ana proved ideal. Anne Hunt came there in 2003 and fell in love with the place. The 400-year old house has been stylishly converted….the terraces, which look out over a ravishing prospect, are perfect for relaxing after a ramble in the hills."

Irish Times, October 2012


"Ferreirola: I roamed the steep cobbled streets in search of Casa Ana… in what is quite possibly the most beautiful village in the Alpujarras… Casa Ana provides the ideal base for exploring this untamed wilderness. Anne Hunt has transformed a crumbling old family home into a stylish guest house with spectacular views of the river gorge from its courtyard, blooming with wisteria and roses."
