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

Very relaxing trip in a wonderfully unspoilt region. Covarrubias is a beautiful Medieval village, full of character and charm.

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.

SIERRA DE LAS MAMBLAS

This is a great trip - beautiful location with a variety of walks taking in some small villages on the way. The mountains are not very steep and the summits are inaccessible so its more of a moderate than a challenging grade. I found it a very relaxing trip with plenty of time in the evening to relax with a cold beer.

Take a second look at SIERRA DE LAS MAMBLAS

Interesting scenery sprinkled with a few really, truely spectacular vistas. Dry, Mediterranean forests and farmland, a little bit of fauna and tonnes of fantastic flora in all its flowery and scented glory in Spring. The remains of plenty of interesting ancient and modern history was seen and discussed. Authentic villages, both rundown and renovated, without the fake touristy smiles. I'm even considering doing this trip a second time.

SIERRA DE LAS MAMBLAS

Comfortable walking in rural Spain from a base in a small village. Great views, good food and friendly locals. Best of all not a fast food resturant in sight. This is Real Spain.
