I've recently come back from a 4 day stay at l'Atelier and can't praise it enough. I'm a vegan and I was delighted to be offered freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast, good quality vegan margarine and fair trade coffee. I ate at l'Atelier for lunch and dinner and the food was invariably wholesome and delicious. The decor and ambiance are just as delightful as the food. But what makes this little place extra special is the kindness and warm hospitality of its host, Jean-Claude. An added bonus was the stunning countryside, ideal for hiking and the absence of car noise (or any other noise for that matter). As Mecina Fondales is high up in the Sierra Nevada, it's a little tricky to reach without a car (but I did it!) I'll be posting some travelling tips on Trip Advisor for those, who like me, want to go there for a few days of total peace and quiet, with delicious healthy food. As for price, it was unbelievably reasonable: my room, with ensuite bathroom, cost € 35 a night, breakfast included. Jean-Claude also offers cookery lessons. I can't wait to go back.
