Walking: It is a walkers paradise here. You can choose to stick to the tracks or climb the steeper mountain paths. Expect to see wild flowers and even the more unusual wildlife if you are lucky. We have wild boar, Ibex (the wild mountain goat) eagles, Hoopoos, blue magpies, bee eaters and numerous other birds. A guide to show you the birds and wild life available on request. Full board or self catering guided walking holidays available upon request. We are close to the renowned beauty spot El Torcal a perfect walking destination for all levels.
El Caminito del Rey: (The King’s Little Pathway) is a walkway, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, Ardales. Just a 40minute drive away. The walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade. After four years of extensive repairs and renovations, the walkway re-opened in 2015. It has been known in the past as the “world’s most dangerous walkway”. Now very safe for its visitors.
Lakes: Spectacular Andalucian lake districts of Iznajar and Ardales both within 1 hour drive.
Mountain bikes We have mountain bikes available for our guests to use, free of charge, suitable from age approx. 9 years
Skiing: We can arrange an excursion to the Sierra Nevada ski resort if skiing is your thing- all equipment hire and lessons can be arranged, or if you prefer and are a competent skier we can act as a guide to show you the best runs. It is quite possible, in the spring, to ski in the morning and spend the afternoon sunbathing on the beach.
