What Past Guests Are Saying
An unexpected cultural treat.
7 of us stayed at Piedras Brillantes over Easter and had a fantastic time.
The weather was sunny enough to live outside during most of the day and enjoy the pool, but not so hot that we needed to seek shade very often. We breakfasted outside in the morning sun, enjoying croissants from the local shop, and fresh-squeezed juice from the local oranges, which are incredibly sweet!
The villa is spacious and well stocked. We enjoyed the barbecue on a few occasions, there were numerous pool toys, a small (but diverse) library of English books, and English TV was available so we could keep up-to-date with the rotten weather that our freinds were putting up with back home!
We are not a particularly 'beachy' family, so whilst we visited the beach on a few occasions it was to explore rather than just lie in the sun. We did a different thing each day. We visited the market at Garrucha, and the deserted village at Marchalo Vinicas, but the most memorable event was the Semana Santa in Vera. This is a spectacular Easter procession with enormous effigies of Christ paraded through the town accompanied by marching bands, eerie costumes and clouds of incense smoke. Well worth experiencing if you visit at Easter.
Our boys are interested in wildlife and enjoy bird-watching. We were treated to swallows, Theckla Larks (we think) and a host of other fauna.
I am a runner, and found a lovely 7K route (advertised as a 'walk', but I ran it anyway) which starts from the villa with a nice down-hill warm up, along the bottom of the canyon which is cool and shaded and has interesting rock formations and a little stream; then about half-way through the run, the path emerges into sunlight again with a moderate climb on to the top of the canyon, and back through almond groves.
