You certainly don’t want to lounge in front of a fireplace.
And there’s no way you’d want to swim in the only open-air swimming pool in Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountains...
That, ladies and gents, is called “reverse psychology.”
Embrace El Lodge, an alpine-style hotel on the slopes of Granada with steam baths, hot stone massages and a chairlift just beyond the front door, booking now for a December 15 reopening.
A sleeping palace of such stature requires some evocative chalet pictures. Also, some brief guidance.
#1. Get one of the rooms with “Pool” in the name.

#2. Maybe ski a little.

#3. Visit the spa.
They’ve got treatments like an après-ski massage. Because a pre-ski massage wouldn’t really make sense.
#4. Eat delicious things.
The restaurant has the only organic caviar in the world. It’s produced south of the Sierra Nevada. Hey, that’s near you.
#5. Or rent out the whole damn chalet.
And that, ladies and gents, is called “self-explanatory.”
