Expert review of Caserio de Mozaga
I had a wonderful welcome from Maria Luisa who is rightly proud of her hotel - it has been her family home for 200 years. Guests staying in the one- and two-storey low-rise whitewashed buildings, surrounded by landscaped gardens, can share in the house's and island's rich rural history.
Right in the centre of the island, away from the beach resorts and the coast, this hotel really in the middle of nowhere, although in fact it is just off the main road. The surrounding rural landscape makes a lovely, peaceful backdrop to this charming, low-key 'casa'.
The eight rooms are undeniably compact: if you need space go for one of the two suites. Bedrooms are sympathetically furnished in a style befitting the building, with soiid cast-iron beds. Note that if temperatures drop, rooms can get cold at night.
There is a cosy lounge filled with family antiques. Wifi is available, although it sometimes struggles to get through the thick, ancient walls. Rooms have terraces with deck chairs looking over the landscaped gardens, which are filled with flowers and native plants.
An atmospheric and well-regarded restaurant in the adjoining old stables serves modern Spanish cuisine.
This is a small hotel, so don’t expect service as such, although when the office is open, Maria Luisa and her staff are very helpful.
Spanish couples seeking peace make up the bulk of the clientele, although there are significant numbers of Brits and Germans too.
Rooms are reasonably priced, but breakfast is charged extra – grrrrrr. This is a practice I despise, and it is not as if there are any other eating options nearby. I wouldn’t recommend the half board, as I would not want to be confined to eating at that restaurant only.
