Baking, walking and activity week with E5 Bakehouse

Dates: 23 - 29 November 2014
The aroma of freshly baked bread, autumn sunshine, new friends...what’s not to like?

Make no mistake: breadmaking and baking is now cool, and none come cooler than the guys who run Hackneys E5 Bakehouse. With passion, panache, charisma and genuine artisanal expertise they’re quite rightfully making waves across London, and it’s just wonderful that they’re prepared to share their skill and knowledge with us here in the alpujarra. So please let us know if you fancy learning from the experts, as well as enjoying the usual convivial atmosphere of Las Chimeneas, alongside some new walks and delicious menus.

Some Reviews from the Carrie Yoga 2014

"A heartfelt thank you from me too. For me, last week verged on the magical: a micro-environment where we had got it right, well, apart from some of those backward bends!"
(Carol Bang Christennsen July 2014)

"What an amazing week it was. Looking back I sometimes wonder if it was all a dream; the yoga, the cherry trees, filling our bottles with spring water, the amazing food and hospitality. Thanks so much Emma, David and Carrie."
(Sharon Rigby July 2014)

"Thank you once again to Emma and David for a fab week, with lots of variety of activity. Loved the walks in the Sierra Nevada and more locally. Of course, I really enjoyed the visit to Lola's weaving emporium. I felt completely at home there and could have stayed put!! Relaxing by the pool, reading, eating cherries, and, of course, the main activity of the day - yoga - all made for a really enjoyable week."
(Carrie Granthan July 2014)

Ashtanga yoga with Kia Naddermier 2015.

Enjoy a week of yoga at Las Chimeneas. Twice daily yoga sessions; in the morning at the Chimeneas organic farm under the olive and fruit trees, and in the evening in a lovely light room looking down over the valley as the sun sets. Specific dates and itinerary are yet to be determined for 2015.

The first route via Guadix is longer but more time on motorway and less mountain road.  As it crosses a high pass from late October to late April you should check with us first to make sure snow isn’t a problem.    The second route via Orgiva is more direct but more small windy roads.  Both take about 2.5 hours.

Restaurant Review

Read the review of Las Chimeneas restaurant written by Chris Stewart of Genesis and 'Driving Over Lemons' fame

Las Chimeneas is an elegant collection of village houses that has been welcoming guests to the Alpujarra since 1998. There are nine lovely rooms, all with fabulous views across the hills to the sea in the far distance. We provide very comfortable accommodation, with plenty of antiques and books and nooks and crannies, together with a delightful little restaurant that will surprise you by the quality of its freshly made seasonal produce. We have a deep knowledge of the area and are anxious to share our enthusiasm for this place that has been our home for so long. We offer all kinds of holidays, including trekking, bird watching, cycling, horse riding, cookery and yoga. Above all what we supply is peace and relaxation and a genuinely warm welcome. This represents a very winning combination; perhaps it is this that led the British Airways team to number us first amongst their Top Ten trekking hotels in the world in the summer of 2011.
