"Paradise is a Micro-bakery in Saleres"

This is a dream vacation! The location is nothing short of idyllic, the hosts charming and accommodating, and they have so much to teach you about artisanal bread and pastry making. It would be a delight in any time but in the midst of a pandemic this is the perfect place for a getaway. You can easily access local sightseeing or you can limit your contacts to the household and focus on the bakery and Lydia's wonderful cooking! Mike even made sure I had a COVID test before my flight. I can't wait to take the fruits of this trip home with me.

"Very fun experience"

I enjoyed my experience learning how to make sourdough bread. Mike and Lydia were excellent instructors and hosts. I felt very welcomed by the family and enjoyed spending time with them.

Mike took me sightseeing one morning which was very enjoyable.

Thank you again for your kindness and hospitality.

"The smell of good bread!"

Mike and Lydia were very knowledgeable instructors and offered excellent hospitality, who made us feel very welcome in their home. The sourdough products we made were delicious. Lydia is an excellent cook who provided us with a variety of delicious meals. The house is very picturesque and has a lovely sun terrace that overlooks the Lecrin Valley.

"The first class experience "

We were just going to learn to bake artisan bread but learned much more than that. Mike and Lydia made us feel like part of their family. Mathew and Lara were fun to share our days with and Lydia fixed great meals with one dinner of Nigerian cooking.

"the dream theme trip"

Sourdough breads and baguettes and croissants! What could be more fun than starting the day with cappuccinos and your own fresh baked bread? I learned how to make the most amazing bread!! All in the tranquil little village of Saleres. Currently there's a bus from the City of Granada but Mike was able to pick me up. Very personable, patient instructors. .
