Just been back to El Rancho to see Jacqui and Garrett and get some early summer sun. I have lost count of the trips I have made and over the years Jacqui and Garrett who are the most incredible hosts have become friends. It was great to see the place looking fantastic and ready for the summer season, the weather was incredible 22 deg C fantastic far better than normal. What really struck me however is that at the current exchange rate just how cheap things are in Spain. Just like the good old days. Dinner for four with pre dinner drinks and two excellent bottles of wine was only £70.00.
This was our 6th trip to Trabuco and our 3rd to El Rancho. The cottage is fantastic, very clean and comfortable, and with its own barbecue terrace. It is almost like having your own pool and hot-tub as you only share it with one other cottage. Jacque and Garret are the perfect hosts, happy to book activities for us and even getting some shopping in for us when we arrived on a late flight, which was a really nice touch. Location is beautiful, with motorbike trails, mountain biking and waterskiing available nearby, as well as the horse riding available at El Rancho. There are also some great restaurants locally, although you do really need a car to make the most of the local area. Highly recommended.
