Secret Trails of Medieval Spain

Secret Trails of Medieval Spain

5
Very enjoyable holiday based in an atmospheric medieval town that can keep you interested for the week to stroll round after the day's walking. . Comfortable hotel with good food. All but one of the walks are straight from the hotel. Countryside is very quiet. We walked on some interesting little paths and on dirt tracks just suitable for vehicles - not that we met many. hardly any walking on roads. No other walking groups about. Hardly any people! Fine views from the tops of the hills we walked up. I found some of those uphills tough, but that's more of a reflection on my fitness! Out tour leader said that the holiday I perhaps at the top end of moderate. I thought so. The weather in mid-October was brilliant, but I understand that isn't always the case.

Walking The Spanish Heartland (TSR)

A superb, well organised holiday, in every respect. Some travellers might balk at the prospect of a 140 mile coach transfer between Madrid and Covarrubias - but I can assure you, the transfer is smooth and the destination well worth it. Couple this with a genial, unflappable and knowledgeable guide (Chris), splendid walking country, well thought out itinerary, comfortable accommodation, friendly host and delicious food - what more could one ask for? Pleasant company - of course !! And Exodus didn't fail there either. Terrific time had by all.

Spanish Heartlands

Brilliant holiday. The walks were fabulous, good lengths that could be modified to suit different abilities, and very varied. The views were really amazing when we got onto the ridges. Eloi, the hotel owner, couldn't do enough to make us welcome, and the food was excellent.

WALKING THE SPANISH HEARTLAND

A really lovely holiday in a beautiful little known area of Spain. The walks  are between 10 and 13 miles a day with ample time take in the " Wild West" scenery, small villages  and wildlife. The village of Covarrubias is a great  centre for walking with lots of choice of routes, afew small shops and bars, lots of character and a feeling of the real Spain.

WALKING THE SPANISH HEARTLAND

Most likely I was the youngest traveler ever on that journey, but despite my age of 22 I truly enjoyed the holiday! The whole trip is so much more than "only" a walking holiday. Things like the visit to the monastery where we went to see some Gregorian chants and to the winery for a tasting of locally produced wines added a lot to the whole walking experience. Furthermore I enjoyed the scenic landscape! Thinking back now, the views we had throughout most of the week (and especially during lunch) were absolutely stunning! Walking along gorges, passing small villages, ascending moderate hills- very varied walking all in all. It is also a must to mention the hotel: (way too much) delicious food and very warm hearted owners made it a very pleasent stay! Last but not least, there is one more highlight: the vultures! I have never seen them before in their natural environment. I shall never forget observing those majestic birds!

WALKING THE SPANISH HEARTLAND

It was a very relaxing holiday as the walks were quite leisurely. No huffing and puffing involved. We had plenty of opportunity to chat to each other. The hotel is very cosy and welcoming, the soundproofing, however, almost non-existent. Since we were the only ones staying there, it wasn't a problem as everybody got up and went to bed at more or less the same time. Earplugs still advisable, especially if you go in the last week of September when the local festival goes on for 5 consecutive nights.The food was very substantial and good, even the breakfast which I was particularly grateful for.

SIERRA DE LAS MAMBLAS

An opportunity to stay in a mediaeval town which feels like 'real' Spain. Covarrubias is a delight and the hotel staff worked hard to make us comfortable. Nearly all meals are included in the cost of the holiday, with a choice of local wine so not many extras to be paid for when you get there. The walking is enjoyable and the extra activities enhance the holiday.
