IF you need to get away from the buzz of the coast this summer, look no further.
Because two quirky Spanish abodes have made the Guardian newspaper’s compilation of Europe’s top ten mountain retreats.
Cortijo Opazo, in the Alpujarras, is a traditional stone farmhouse near Spain’s two highest mountains (Mulhacen and Veleta) with only horseriding, cycling and hiking to entertain you.
And the further-flung El Caracol, in Aragon, is a glass-fronted, solar-powered dome in the middle of acres of pine forest with wild swimming in a limestone gorge nearby, and local wine to sip on.
Retreat to one-bedroomed Cortijo Opazo for €47 per night at oneoffplaces.co.uk or three-bedroom Casa Caracol for €171 per night at coolstays.co.uk
