tourist tips

We would like to remind travelers that whilst areas off the beaten track enable visitors to see another side of Spain it should also be remembered that locals are far less likely to speak English. Road signs are also less prominent and the roads themselves are often much narrower and in worse condition. It's a good idea to go equipped with an up to date map and a Spanish phrase book in case of emergency.

Whilst most towns and villages have small shops and petrol/gas stations it's a good idea to make sure that the car is full and to take a bottle of water, especially if you have children or elderly people with you.

Most establishments will be operating on Spanish hours. This means that many places will open from 10.00-2.00 and from 4.30-8.00. Most places are CLOSED from 2.00 until 4.30, so bear this in mind.

White Villages of Andalusia

The white villages of Andalusia are probably most peoples stereotype of a traditional Spanish village. Perched upon a hill side with picturesque with the small villas divided by narrow alleys and streets. Surprisingly it is still possible to find villages such as this on the Costa del Sol. Here are seven examples of white villages scattered throughout the region.

Alpandeire - the place where Fray Leopoldo was born. Júbrique - situated on the top of a mountain, giving a fantastic views of the Sierra Rondeña. Pujerra - famed for its fine work with leather. Carratraca - famous for its natural sulphur spas. Alfarnatejo - with the ruins of its Muslim castle. Totalán - a little village of great interest for its natural beauty and for its archeological treasures. Sedella and Archez - full of monuments and Moorish retreats of great value and historical interest.
