We spent 10 days with the Casa Alegre family, and we were sad to leave. It was a very comfortable atmosphere, reminding us of our own home. The breakfasts were something to look forward to, and although the pool was cold -even for Canadians - the beautiful courtyard and sitting area was relaxing and inviting. We spent many hours playing cards and having drinks together, just soaking up the sun. After a couple of trips to San Hose, we were so happy NOT to be staying there, but here, in our quiet, safe residence. We ate out in the evenings at excellent restaurants that were all within walking distance, and our lunches were purchased at the supermarket and bakery, and enjoyed back at Casa Alegre.
