Day 1 Arrive Algamitas
Arrive in the heart of Andalucia. Wander through olive groves, sip sangria on the farmhouse porch, laze in the pool or simply settle in before the walking adventure begins.
Days 2 - 7 Day walks from Algamitas/ Seville
Explore the villages surrounding Seville, the capital of Andalucia. Using the idyllic Cortijo Rosario as a base, start the trip with a walk over gently rolling hills to the village of Villanueva. Take a circular walk around the impressive Penon crag on day two, which gives a spectacular view of Cortijo Rosario. Perhaps indulge in fine Andalucian produce at a village restaurant serving delicious local tapas. Journey through Algamitas and begin day three with an exploration of the atmospheric Canos Santos monastery before embarking on a walk along the Ruta de los Molinas, famed for the Quixote-style windmills that dot the landscape. A day trip to Seville gives a change of scenery and pace. With a free day to explore, there is a myriad of fascinating museums, gardens and World Heritage-listed buildings waiting to be discovered. Or simply wile away the day in cafes sipping coffee, sampling the wide range of seafood available or sampling the region's famous sherries. A dramatic drive through the Grazalema Mountains on day six allows an exploration of the limestone wonders of Benaocaz village. Spend the last walking day trekking up to startling views over the Guadalhorce Dam from rugged El Chorro Gorge.
Day 8 Depart Algamitas
Take in the view of Cortijo Rosario one last time and with a week's worth of walking memories at hand, it's time to farewell the rolling hills of Andalucia.
