Mercedes' house is probably the only surviving traditional Alpujarran house in Trevelez that is available to rent. Even the locals know her for her amazing house; thanks to her refurbishing efforts.
We (my girlfriend and I) had a very comfortable and peaceful stay. The house is located in the upper part of the village which, is also the old part of the village; the original Alpujarran neighborhood. Right under the mountain Mulhacen, all around are wonderful views.
The most exciting thing for us was the fireplace which we used to keep warm and also to roast food!
The caretaker of the house, Maria Jose is a very nice and warm person who was very helpful.
I will recommend this house to everyone who has a taste for rustic living.
