Walking in Andalucia

I really enjoyed this, my first walking holiday in quite a while. It was very well planned, starting with a short amble to the nearby village and building up to a longer, slightly more challenging route later in the week. None of the walking was particularly arduous, although there are some hills - including the short steep one up to the finca where we stayed - but our leader Alexis always made sure we were all happy with the pace, which was leisurely, and we took frequent rests to admire the countryside. The area is very peaceful and unspoilt, and the days when we were taken further afield and into the mountains in the minibus gave us a chance to see more of it. The day in Seville was a good contrast to the rural walks, and there is a lot to see there. The beautiful Alcazar is pretty unmissable if people haven't seen it before. At the finca the accommodation was comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the staff; the owners came to say hello and were also charming and helpful. The food was good and plentiful too. Having wondered beforehand how I would cope after a long break from walking, I had a really great week, and am now planning my next week away.

Amazing Andalucia!

A surprisingly wonderful experience shared with a very friendly group of people and fantastic guide. The accommodation was set in a superb location and surrounding. The Farmhouse was very well kept and the food and service of very good standard.

Walking in Andalucia

This is a most enjoyable holiday in beautiful countryside. It was a great pleasure staying at the Cortijo Rosario, a comfortable converted farmhouse set in very attractive grounds and with its own swimming pool. The traditional breakfasts and dinners were excellent, and the sangria and paella demonstrations on the last evening a highlight. It was so good to be off the tourist route and see small villages where people actually live, as well as the stunning countryside.

This being our first experience with Exodus and having been on two other walking holidays we knew roughly what to expect however this holiday exceeded our expectations ! From pick up at Malaga to departure a week later everything went smoothly. On arrival Chris who was our leader for the week met us and took us to the waiting taxi where the other guests met us as well to take us onward to Cortijo Rosario our home for the week. On route Chris pointed out various places of interest and had a wealth of historical information to make the journey interesting for us all. We were a small group six in total but this did not matter at all. Once unpacked Chris showed us around the farmhouse and gave us a few house rules which helped us settle in. Each evening Chris told us all we needed to know about the following day's walks all of which were varied and thoroughly enjoyable whether it was from the Farmhouse or a taxi journey away. Every walk had lots of interest and lots of wild flowers and birds to see and this was backed up with Chris and a vast amount of Andalucian knowledge. Food was excellent,prepared by Maria a local lady and helped by Rocio, giving us all a taste of Andalucia. Breakfast was simple but enough to start our day's walking,lunch was a picnic and one day a tapas lunch was provided in on of the local villages that we passed through.Evening meal was three courses with wine all very nice.After the meal the group sat in the lounge where a large open fire made us all feel at home, this gave us time to reflect on the days walk .One night Chris did a quiz to see if we had taken on board all that he had to tell us, this was fun. Whilst we were there it was our 33rd wedding anniversary and having spoken to Rocio she managed to get flowers delivered to the Farmhouse for my wife, in the evening Bill and Ann the owners bought out a bottle of Cava for us all to enjoy, a really nice touch.This was followed by two local girls who did Flamenco dancing for us, this was fantastic ,a joy to see. So in general an excellent holiday with a brilliant leader. Thank you Exodus

WALKING IN ANDALUCIA

A great holiday with a great bunch of people.  The location was ideal - very peaceful apart from the bird chorus in the morning -  with good food and wine. A lot of nice little touches which didn't cost much but made quite a bit of difference - being able to have a cup of tea and a biscuit after a day's walking a classic example.  Nothing was ever too much trouble for our genial host.

WALKING IN ANDALUCIA

A nice hotel but perhaps not ideally situated. Too many long bus drives in the heat to get to a start point for the walks and too many long drives back..
