Reviews for Almeria walking holiday in Andalucia, Spain


review 6 Jan 2013

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

Experiencing the real and unspoilt Spain, sampling the local food and hiking in delightful countryside. No tourists and the rustic charm of the accommodation.

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

If you want total tranquility, the real Spain with its delicious tapas bars and restaurants and local wine ( all at amazing value!) and totally peaceful accommodation away from it all, but near enough to walk into the village, then this is the place for you. The walks were very enjoyable taking anything from 3 to 6 hours, but do take a good picnic with you and supplement John's excellent guides with a large scale map. This would also give you the opportunity for free walking. We went as a family with 2 of our daughters (28 and 23 years old) and boyfriend of the oldest. We booked all 3 cottages which worked well for us, but always breakfasted together in one and entertained playing card games etc. together in one. If everyone likes walking and eating local food then you will have a great time together.

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

We were there for a week and only ate out, as the evening would have been too cold for BBQs and we did not want to cook. The food in the restaurants in the village was all freshly cooked , varied and delicious and amazing value for money! We bought whatever we could in the village, even bringing 2 huge terracotta dishes home that cost 10 Euros! We hardly used our hire car, only on 2 occasions to drive down to the coast.

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

A lovely holiday away from it all total peace and tranquility, great food and wine, charming comfortable, rustic accommodation and fantastic walks. Rate it highly!
