On my recent visit to Spain, I visited Cortijo Opazo which is part of the Open Garden programme in the Alpujarras – a lovely unspoiled area in southern Spain where we’ve been going for over 20 years. It is purported to have the cleanest air in Europe and fantastic walking. A British couple bought the derelict property about 15 years ago and run it as a holiday rental. Over the years they have converted the ancient terraces into garden rooms each with a different theme – local plants, English garden, vegetables (including the broadbeans below which were very much in season!), chickens, etc. A lovely visit!
