Jon and I would like to thank you and Wendy for making our stay at Berchules in the Alpujarra the highlight of our holiday!  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel most of all because of the generous and warm hospitality extended to us by both of you and Sammy.  We will cherish the moments in conversation about Singapore and our wedding by the warmth of the fireplace.  Not to mention the sumptious home-made dinners patiently prepared by you.  Thank you for helping us with the booking of our Alhambra tickets...advice on skiing...and on how to book tickets for the Barcelona-Sevilla match. Jon and I were thinking what we'd like to do when we return to Spain and staying at Hotel Los Berchules was a definite must!  We will recommend your Hotel and the Alpujarras to friends planning to visit Spain.  Thank you once again from the bottome of our hearts!

Dear Alejandro and family

This is a short message of total appreciation, following our recent stay at Berchules (departing last Thursday). We simply loved the welcome, the hotel, the situation and everything that your very friendly family operation offers.

We were very choked when we departed last Thursday. You have much responsability for what was possibly our best every continental holiday in our 40 years of marriage. Not a single thing went wrong in 10 days!

We will recommend Hotel Los Berchules to all our friends, and wish you all every success both in business and in family matters.

Many thanks for the big part you all played in our wonderful holiday (which only ended with Ryanair 1.30 a.m. today!!)

Hi Alejandro and Wendy, We wanted to thank you both for all your kindness and help in making our holiday in Berchules so memorable and such fun. We have never had  a better walking holiday and that includes going with Inntravel and other well known companies. We've told everyone what a friendly place you run with great food and , of course, the advantage of Sammy to make sure of good company on the walks. Hope to see you again, Neil and Gay, June 2011

We just wanted to say again what a wonderful time we had at Los Berchules last month.  We loved every bit of it; everything was perfect, not least the delicious food, your very good company and, of course, the TV football.  So thank you very much for everything and we hope to be back some day.  Linda and Tony (Riley)  March 2011

Dear Alejandro, Wendy, Csilla, Andrew....and of course Sammy, Thank you for a most marvellous holiday at Hotel Los Berchules. Last week was one of the best holidays of our lives. You made us feel so welcome in your lovely hotel, and looked after our every need. The food is excellent - really imaginative local dishes, cooked with great care, but plenty of it, to cope with a walking holiday. The rooms are great, and we especially appreciated having a bath - a shower just does not do it after a long hike in the mountains. The walking was spectacular; we had day after day of lovely scenery, and Sammy to show us the way (and lay down the law to a few village cats) But most of all we really enjoyed meeting you all; you did not just look after us, we really enjoyed your company over the week we were with you.  Thank you again for a terrific holiday,  James and Hillary, Wilthire, April 2010

It turned out my time in Bérchules was the very best of my time in Spain and with hindsight I should have stayed a bit longer even if you did have rain.  I did miss Sammy as her company on my walks was very special...  Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality and looking after my delicate digestion...  Deanne McArthur, Yukon, Dec.2009

Thank you all for such a lovely and memorable holiday.  We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all and spending time with you.  It was one of those rare moments in life when the unexpected happens and life is all the richer for this experience. Angela & Derek Beattie, Bristol.Nov.2009

Thank you for the wonderful time you gave me this last week.  I feel fit and well to face the Scottish winter.... I will definitely be returning to your wonderful hotel.  Di Badham, Scotland, Oct.2009

Once again thank you so very very much for another wonderful holiday. Like home from home for us altho’ we have to get used to ordinary dull kitchen food after the gourmet meals you gave us – never mind 2 star, I’d give you 4! ...I actually believe, like a fairy tale, that Hotel Los Bérchules has closed and gone to sleep waiting for me to return next year. Jean Smith, Seafresh Painting Club  June 2009

This holiday provided the best walking we have experienced with Inntravel. None of it was boring. The hotels and food were all excellent and service everywhere friendly and very helpful. We expected it to be challenging and it was! Every walk was spectacular and remote. The Bérchules circuit was wonderful, especially with Sammy, the hotel dog, as a companion. Gwen and Jim McKinnon, Edinburgh

We were lucky with the weather but I think that was only one aspect of one of the best holidays we have ever, and will ever, have. Pauline Kenny, Skelmersdale, UK

We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will hold this visit in our memory no doubt, and can recommend the area for walking, the home cooking (it was truly fantastic) and everyone should have a go at taking Sammy for a walk; she is a lovely dog! Philip and Gita, Oxford, UK

We have already told our friends of the warm welcome that they can expect and we hope to see you again at some point in the not too distant future. Barry and Karen Rossiter, East Grinstead, UK

We arrived home yesterday at 3am tired but satisfied after a wonderful holiday. Thank you all for making it such a relaxing and enjoyable time. We would love to have been able to stay longer and obviously would love to return sometime. Angus Burnett, Oxford, UK

Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful break, especially putting us up at the last minuite. It takes a week back in the vastly cooler British climate, without the stunning views from the terrace to truly realise what a wonderful time we had at the hotel. Carolyn Mills, Barnsley, UK

I just thought I would drop you a quick line to say a big thankyou to you all for making our stay so wonderful. I think I can speak on behalf of Claire and Doug when I say that your hospitality made us feel very welcome and relaxed. I hardly need to mention how much we all enjoyed the food, I absolutely could not fault anything. Mary Seaton, London, UK

How nice to get this (our quarterly mail-out) on our return from our holidays with you, it immediately made us want to come back as soon as possible! Two weeks of daily grind since we got back, and with foul English weather as well, it seems a long time ago that we were strolling with Sammy down the hillside... miss her, and the fresh orange juice on the terrace for breakfast, and the evening G&T followed by great food, and the fabulous walking, and the relaxed atmosphere of the hotel with you all! We had a wonderful holiday, and really hope we can come again, and will tell all our friends what a great place you have! Caroline and Nick, Cheshire, UK

Thank you for the great hospitality we enjoyed at your hotel. Your friendliness and the relaxed atmosphere made a big difference. Sonja Tiscenko & Richard Marshall , Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania

Thank you so much for a lovely stay! The boys thought your hotel "rocked" - as did we. Cooking was also superlative." G. Mayers, Geneva, Switzerland

Sometimes people ask us why we return again and again to the same place and the answer is that it is such a special treat. Nowhere else combines such a beautiful spot with such perfect hospitality. Jenny and Chris Knapton, Devon, UK

I just wanted to say a very big 'thank you' for looking after us all so very well during our stay with you last week. Your hotel was just perfect, the food absolutely delicious, we couldn't have asked for more. Cath Wignall, North Yorkshire, UK

I need to go on a diet after eating those lovely meals.... Janine Fitzgerald, Torremendo, Spain

Your warm welcome and hospitality were exceptional and we can only say great things about your hotel and services, as well as the beautiful village you all live in. Bekkie says "thank you" for a fantastic birthday and the cake was a very kind thought, as well as being delicious. Leyton and Bekkie, Nottingham, UK

We thought we would drop you a line to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Hotel Los Bérchules last month; we had a great time - comfy beds, good food, a really relaxing atmosphere... and great company and attention from you all. Although we were with you for just one of the three weeks we had in Spain, it was by far the most relaxing week that we had. We felt that nothing was too much trouble. Steve MacDonald, London, England

It is always a bit worrying booking an unknown hotel direct, on the internet but you did exactly what it said on the tin and more. Very comfortable, lots of local information and great home cooking. Diane Metcalfe, Sussex, UK

This (my birthday celebration at the hotel) has really been a tremendous success for me and for all my guests who came with several different needs and expectations. It was a dream, and you are "The Dream Team". Reidar Saunes, Oslo, Norway

Just a line to say thank you once again for making our stay with you so enjoyable. We had a lovely time and hope to come again sometime. I have just e-mailed Lemon Valley and told Nicola what a great time we had! Barbara Sykes, Grange-over-Sands, UK
