Reviews for Andalucia self guided walking holiday, twin centred


review 8 Nov 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Everything! Grazelema was such a pleasure to stay in. Amazing setting, charming small town with narrow, steep cobblestone streets, wonderful restaurants, great hiking and La Mejorana was splendid. A great place to stay, a blend of old charm and new. And Andres, the owner was so special, charming, friendly, full of recommendations for treks, restaurants, shops, history... We spent 19 days in Andalusia and our stay in Grazelema was the highpoint of the trip.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Stay at La Mejorana! Go in the spring when the flowers are blooming or the fall. Take time to hike, explore other pueblos blancos and explore Grazelema. It is small, only 2200 people, and is a terrific respite from larger cities in the region. Hang out on your patio or in one of the plazas and just soak it in.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. Grazelema depends on tourism for its livelihood. So, contributing to the local economy benefits the local people. La Mejorana is very environmentally focused, so staying there helped reduce environmental impacts. Also practicing "leave no trace" trekking supported the environment and conservation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
