An update to our walking tour at the Finca El Cerrillo, this guided walk combines gentle walking to the nearby white villages of Sedella, Salares and Competa with visits to the caves at Nerja and a day in Malaga, the birthplace of Picasso. The week ends with a spectacular 4X4 vehicle drive to Loma del Daire with views of the nearby peaks and distant views to Nerja and the sea. Our experienced walking leader will accompany you on all walks. Some of our paths will take us off-the-beaten-track in the Sierra de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park and on other days, we'll be exploring the pretty white villages and olive-planted hillsides that date back to Moorish times. The walks are short, typically allowing for free time in the afternoon to relax in the beautiful grounds of the Finca.
The Finca el Cerrillo is an absolute gem of a place to stay. There are thirteen individually styled en-suite rooms. The living areas include a wonderfully atmospheric beamed lounge, cool in summer and kept cozy on winter nights with a blazing log fire, dining room, small library and 'honesty' bar. The terraced gardens, with 100-year old carob and palm trees, surround both sunny and shaded patios, with comfy seating areas. The pool affords stunning views of the valley below and the pretty Moorish village of Archez with its C13 Moorish tower.
The food here is superb with menus relying on fresh, local produce. On five evenings, you eat at the Finca, either in the dining room or al fresco on warm evenings, and on the remaining nights we'll go to local restaurants. Wine (1/2 bottle per person) is included every evening as are all breakfasts and picnic/tapas lunches.
