Sierras to the Sea - Self Guided  Holidays

Ingrid and I had a great time on our walking holiday from Canillas and enjoyed meeting you both and our morning talks with Peter. Your impressive knowledge of the area greatly helped our enjoyment. It was very hot at times although interestingly me, from the mild UK, finds that less of a problem that Ingrid from hot SA! All of the walks were excellent. The hotel is perfect for a walking holiday and Antonio is a treasure. We had a really good onward journey. The Mesquita is truly amazing and Corboba is a fascinating city. Driving in Granada was manic but nothing if you've lived in London, Bahrain and Joburg. The Alhambra is also amazing. I'm so glad that I finally got to see it. What with the hill up to it and the sheer size of the place it helps to be a hiker to go there. Our days at the beach in Almunecar were a good way to round off the holiday. Ingrid enjoyed her first trip to Spain and wants to return albeit when it's a bit cooler. Best wishes and I hope that we meet again. Keith & Ingrid (Berkshire) July 2016

Just a note to thank you for a lovely week walking in the mountains. Wonderful scenery , food and organisation from yourselves. Antonio was a bit quirky but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience with him- though I know now why you weren't very impressed with the churros idea for breakfast! All the best for the rest of your season. Alison & Steve (Burton on Trent) Oct 2016

We are home again with jet lag behind us and back into the regular activities! But still spending time each day talking about the wonderful holiday we had in southern Spain, particularly our week in Canillas with Spanish Steps. That week far exceeded our expectations in so many ways and was over all too quickly! Spanish Steps offers excellent vacations at very good rates. It will be hard to decide which one to try next.

We were very happy with the holiday. It was a new experience for us to go on a self-guided holiday organised by a company. It ticked all the boxes we had. The area was totally new, and we loved it. We loved that part of Spain, the Spaniards we met were all very friendly and helpful. The food was terrific, the prices very affordable, there were amazing surprises (especially these river gorges, and the ford on the group walk, which were sudden areas of incredible beauty and tranquillity). We thought Canillas was lovely- beautiful, but very real,’full-bodied’!Back down to earth, the accommodation was great and your local knowledge, and love of the area a huge bonus. We really appreciated you finding walks which were a bit longer and more challenging, and enjoyed the group walk too, thank you for enabling us to go on it. Doug and Ruth (Cheshire) October 2015

We had a wonderful time thank you and really enjoyed the walks. We found the maps and instructions excellent, the accommodation really good and thank you very much for putting so much into making this such a good walking holiday. Pat, Jim and Johanna (Edinburgh) June 2015

Just wanted to let you know that we got home in one piece We really enjoyed the break and wanted to thank you for the meticulous organisation with options that made it so stress-free. We would have no hesitation about recommending you to anyone wanting something similar. John and Suse (Argyle) Feb 2015

We truly enjoyed the week and were greatly pleased with our experience. It met if not exceeded our expectations for a self-guided tour. You and Sue provided us with the necessary transfers and information to let us feel on our own but not abandoned. We were glad to have had an opportunity to meet you both and look forward to another holiday with Spanish Steps. Mark and I are already talking about joining Spanish Steps for a guided tour in Morocco in 2015. Rebecca and Mark (USA) Sierras to the Sea February 2014

Just to let you know that we had a lovely time on our recent holiday. We're thinking that next year we'd like to explore the Ronda area, so if you have any suggestions we'd be very interested. Gill & Anthony (Lancashire) April 2014

We all agreed we had a fabulous time and cannot praise your services high enough. Organisation and hosting levels were second to none and please pass on our thanks and appreciation to Antonio who was just superb. Suffice to say we found our time with Spanish Steps faultless and would highly recommend our experience to others. Once again, thanks a million for all you did and will no doubt repeat the experience in the future. Karen,Isobel, Janet & Ellie, (Edinburgh), October 2013

We very much enjoyed our week with Spanish Steps - thank you! The location and scenery were wonderful and the walks and organisation excellent. We found your directions and comments to be generally very good and the briefings beforehand very helpful. In Maro we missed the friendliness and less commercial environment of los pueblos blancos. The hotel was adequate but perhaps a little tired. On which note we have to mention the first walk at Maro which we found both extremely enjoyable and quite demanding in places. Definitely memorable for the scenery and variation in terrain. We enjoyed your company and hope that we will have the opportunity to join you again next year. We will certainly recommend your holidays to our nearest and dearest in the meantime! Catherine and Robin ,Surrey, October 2013
We had a fabulous time walking in Spain. A holiday we will remember for a long time. We loved staying at Antonio's. The walks were well thought out, the hotels well chosen and suited the ethos of the holiday. We loved the tapas with you both at Antonio's, such fun. We had a great time in Maro and our extension to Seville. We look forward to returning to Spain with Spanish Steps. Nicky & Wayne, Sevenoaks, September 2013

Thank you so much for the fantastic week we had with Spanish Steps, you made us feel so welcome and we enjoyed all the wonderful walks,and as we mentioned we particularly enjoyed our stay at Antonio's. Once again thanks for a fantastic holiday. Neil & Tamaris, Bucks

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you both so much for such a lovely holiday. Antonio's hotel was in the most beautiful place and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We would also like to thank Andy for taking the time and trouble to drive us to the other beautiful pueblo blancos and to Sue for driving us up to the wonderful views, you really did manage to show us the beautiful mountains despite Rosie's knee. We hope you enjoy your day at King's Week. Sarah & Rose, Canterbury June 2013

I am now back in Canada. Suzanne and I had a great trip with you and would love to do more. We were thrilled to see the rosemary, sage, and thyme growing and I am reminded when I smell the herbs I have here. One of my favorite walks was the last one that was up in the hills and then ended up down the river bed. I also loved the walk where we saw the horses and then met up with you for lunch on the changeover day. I enjoyed Antonio's more than the seaside hotel but both were good. Thank you. You managed to tailor a perfect holiday for us. Stella and Suzanne (Canada) Sierras to the Sea
