Colourful Grazalema in Springtime

The countryside surrounding Grazalema is now in full spring bloom with a myriad of wild flowers showing their best after the rain in March but also the streets of Grazalema are well worth a stroll around. Many people in Grazalema take great pride in caring for their patios and balconies. Streets filled with colour! Beautiful!

Fantastic week of blue skies and walking in Grazalema.

With day time temperatures exceeding 20 degrees , the brilliant blue skies and April sunshine, I have taken a welcome break from the computer and walking with anyone else and taken off to the hills on my own to discover more walks and wildlife in the Sierra de Grazalema. Although I love my job as a writer, web site manager, nature and walking guide it’s also really nice to get out in to the peace and tranquility of my adopted home mountains alone to think a bit and reflect on who I am and where I am going whilst taking in the beauty of my surroundings…

After some rain in March and April the Sierra de Grazalema is alive with stunning spring growth and the reservoir at Zahara de la Sierra is  full to brimming bringing much relief to many locals and visitors of the Sierra…

The Caminito del Rey, El Chorro and The Guadalhorce reservoirs

With the announcement of the opening of the infamous “Caminito del Rey” close to El Chorro in 2015 we decided to write about that as well. As usual the website is packed with information about the area to our usual high standards. Hotel booking in the area of El Chorro, the Guadalhorce reservoirs and the kings path walkway.

Three years has gone by and our site remains the number one  web site for information about the Caminito del Rey!

If you are planning to visit the area and want to walk the Caminito del Rey then be sure to read the information we have put together for you.

Cafe bar Rumores in Grazalema

Although not a “hidden” gem in the village of Grazalema The cafe bar “Rumores” located on the town square in Grazalema does have a few surprises in store… Most people think of the place for breakfasts,  afternoon coffee and cakes but the food coming out of the kitchen at lunchtime is equal to and sometimes greater than other restaurants in the village… Fantastic fresh salads, local cheeses, meats and soups… It is well worth sitting, watching the village comings and goings of the village and sampling some of the great food on the menu. Vegeterian food is available without a problem..

Inside is a fantastic shop selling home made cakes and pastries plus their very own delicious bread recipes

They have a website with more information here.

Our website about the “City of Dreams” – Ronda in Andalusia.

A small city perched on a seemingly precarious platform of rock, Ronda is in fact an impregnable fortress only defeated in battle through trickery, and during the reconquest with modern (for the era) rock blasting cannons.

The mountains and valleys of the Serranía de Ronda are home to a tough breed of people, yet in Ronda these people are refined, some are gentry, some gypsies, others are just common folk, but all proudly call themselves Rondeños.

We are particularily proud of this website that receives over 50,000 visitors each month! Everything you need to find out about Ronda before and during your visit can be found here….
