Here with Inntravel – the whole week has been great but this place especially so. Fab’ food, walking and accommodation. We’re rarely back anywhere( it’s a big world) but we could make this an exception.

Its wonderful to be here. The sound of silence, the sound of the nightingales, fantastic views, great hospitality and of course….the fantastic food. 4 days is too short to see everything so we have to come back

With Inntravel but with extra days here ,which was a very good decision as there are many excellent walks in the area. Would agree with prev. comments re alternative Africa walk. Have been overwhelmed by all the scenery, flowers and birds. Saw a lot of Vultures inc. close up views and Golden eagles. Food fantastic as you will soon discover.

Thank you for looking after us so well. We have come on an Inntravel week but intend to return for a full week here with friends. Do the “Africa” walk and take up Brian’s offer of a transfer to the start. Wonderful to have Pat’s cooking in the evening. This is a classy organisation – very thoughtful and we really appreciate it. Best wishes.

Just completed a wonderful three days stay at Casa L’Ametler. The walking was quite splendid. Brian was very helpful and knowledgeable on all aspects of the region. The house was a joy to stay in – no attention to detail had been left unattended to and the crowning glory were the truly wonderful meals of 5* quality produced by Pat: We cannot fault our stay here and aim to return someday soon!

1st December 2012
Thanks so much for a thoroughly enjoyable week. Every day was full of different types of adventure, sights, tastes and weather! There were so many highlights during the week I’m struggling to picks ones to mention – the Aitana ridge walk, Els Frares and the “snow walk” were really memorable. The cycling adventure I will never forget! Wonderful service provided by the bike rental company. Pat’s great food hit the spot every night. Brian’s wine and music were the perfect accompaniment. Particular thanks to the hard working Tom, who expertly guided me around all week, protecting me from poisonous fruit, demonstrating the secrets of the scree eun and even producing a Golden eagle! Also thank you all for being so accommodating given my unfortunate lack of gear …. and wallet!!!!

” The High Sheriff of Cumbria – on a mission! Raising funds for Young Carers in Cumbria by completing a gruelling sponsored walk ( More gruelling for some than others!) Sierra Mariola, GR7 route including Montcabrer (1390m). young carer James was like a gazelle compared to the old puffers. Other entertainment included an excellent trip to the Safari Aitana to shake trunks with the elephants and to play “Hungry Hippos”. James not very accurate with his potatoes. Rest and relaxation superbly provided by Pat and Brian with excellent guiding skills from Tom. The food , the drink and Craic all of the highest order.
Xativa Castle was also besieged succesfully by the High Sheriff and her posse – all the high points were taken and claimed on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II in her Jubilee year. She gave it back when we departed the battlements.
Holiday rounded off with a Spanish BBQ – we think!. Will the Spanish General strike mean we are stuck in paradise a little longer …….” (unfortunately not to be).
The High Sheriff of Cumbria – Iona Frost Pennington; and Peter Frost Pennington of Muncaster Castle, Ravenglass; Cumbria.
Brian’s note, we have been informed that the charity event has raised over
£ 20,000 (26th April 2012) with a final fund raising event to take place at Muncaster Castle on the 4th June sponsored by mountainWALKS.
