Our host was excellent, assisting us with recommendations for hikes, translating the menu into English, and assisting us with telephoning home. We had the best meals in two weeks in Spain - rich lasagne with Bechemel sauce (no calories!), house salad with lettuce straight from their garden, savoury rabbit cassoulet, and hot smooth carrot soup, not to forget the amazing cheesecake. Thankfully, we had two excellent hikes to wear this all off.
