What completes the perfect summer day out, is lunch – or dinner – in Benarrabá. That sounds peculiar, as if Benarrabá is like Austin, or St Ives; it’s actually a tiny white village directly below the Gaucin road like a hanging basket, and has a population of around 700. It has a small hotel, Banu Rabbah, super-friendly, with 12 lovely rooms, and extraordinary views over the lush valley and across to distant white villages in distant mountains from the rooms, and the large, flower-filled terrace restaurant. The emphasis is on ecological and vegetarian food, and meals here are a treat. Start with the orange, avocado and mustard seed salad – a perfect example of their original and delicious healthy offering.
