When we ex pats get bored of the beach and crave some cold weather we head to the Spanish mountains of Sierra Nevada.
Id never even heard of Sierra Nevada before I moved to Spain, but apparently its a thing and our friends spend most of the early part of the year there. So naturally we had to get in on the action and its fast become a favorite
A favorite, massively due to the fact we have El Lodge...
El lodge is so cool. The hotel interiors, the service, the apres ski, the food. The list is endless
The rooms are so stylish and cosy you don't want to leave them. Until you catch a glimpse of the heated pool right outside your door... that's really all the persuasion you need!
In Fact I love El Lodge so much, I turn our terrace at home into "Belle Lodge" ... an alpine inspired winter space totally inspired by El Lodge. Cute eh!?
The sundeck is the place to hang out when your not skiing. Chairs draped in the chicest blankets to keep you warm (there are heaters too) and watch the skiers fly against a backdrop of snow covered mountains while you enjoy the most delicious lunch (cheese features heavily on the menu) so I was in heaven
And in the evening head to the Grill
Watch the sunset over the mountain as fireplace roars over a glass of wine. This place has a very special place in my heart. It was here that we decided on and toasted to our home which we affectionately call Provence in Espania
Aren't we so lucky to have a ski resort so close to home?
If you're visiting Sierra Nevada, I highly recommend El Lodge, its simply the best place to stay
