Walking in Andalucia

A very enjoyable holiday

5
The accommodation is set in spectacular scenery, you eat outside with that view every day (weather permitting). Walks are enjoyable and varied, and often end with a nice cool drink in a local bar. Pool at the accommodation is very nice and refreshing at the end of the day (pool towels are provided). Food served is also excellent. Drinks are very reasonably priced in the Cortijo.

Walking in Andalusia

One of the best holidays ever. It was a wonderful mixture of walking - where the scenery was different on every hike and incredibly unspoilt, eating beautiful authentic Spanish food , experiencing Andalusian culture and still having time to relax by the pool surrounded by magnificent views. The Cortijo Rosaria was a wonderful place to stay - the staff did everything to make our holiday special, with a surprise Flamenco event at the end of the week.

From the olives to the mountains

A fairly gentle week's walking though I'd imagine it would be a lot harder in the heat of summer. We had torrential rain on the first day's walk (unusual) but the weather after that was a very pleasant at 25 to 30 degrees C. The atmosphere at the farmhouse was very relaxed, and it was lovely not to have to worry about room keys (you're in the countryside, a long way from crime and annoyances). It's worth noting that the days are relatively short, so there is fair amount of time spent back at the farmhouse in the afternoon waiting for dinner at 8pm - fine if you like relaxing, not so good if you like to be active.

A great walking trip with leisurely walks through the beautiful Andalucian countryside. Each walk had different elements with ample time to stop and admire the views. The guide, Alexis, was pleasant, well informed and knowledgeable about the area. He spoke excellent Spanish and liaised with the local people throughout our trip, ensuring that the needs of the group were wholly met. The staff at the cortijo were welcoming and the atmosphere was informal and relaxed - perfect at the end of a days walking. The food was excellent throughout the stay. The swimming pool is quite small but adequate for a refreshing dip at the end of the afternoon. I had a super time with my fellow walkers and have returned with many happy memories.

Andalucia moderate to challenging - the first at this level

5
An excellent week in a beautiful part of Spain. Good range of walks on 5 days, with great views from the peaks and interesting walk to a hidden valley. Most walks about 10 miles with 650 to 950 metres climb during the walk. Comfortable accommodation, a lounge with a log fire in the evening and good catering. Less strenuous day out in Seville, but time to visit places of interest and try out a local bar or two.

Andalucian adventure, mod/challenging (recce)

Good walking for 5 days, pastoral and olive groves, with two mountains, the ones seen from the excellent and friendly Cortija. Those were about 10 miles and nearly 3000 ft climbing. The other days were easier but with the interest of a curious village built into an around a gorge, Setinel; a monastery for a brought lunch; a hidden, sunken upland limestone plateau; and El Chorro Gorge, an impressive sight, although that walk has not been fully worked out yet as the gorge walkway is not quite finished. I have no doubt that our leader, Chris Burke, will work out an excellent route as he did for the others. The grading is accurate. Seville sight seeing is as for the easier trip. The food by the hostesses was varied and superb. Some Flamenco dancing by two local lasses at the Cortija, and the interesting clapping rhythm, was a bonus.

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.

Walking in Andalucia

Excellent walking in rural Spain

5
This was an excellent week spent in the peace and quiet of rural Andalucia. We were very lucky with the weather with only one stormy night followed by a damp morning, but because the tour was run with some flexibility this day was taken to visit Seville rather than walking. It was a fun and interesting group, and there was plenty of laughter alongside the exercise. The walks were varied and enjoyable although not desperately strenuous.
