Self Guided – Pueblos Blancos

We really enjoyed the walks and the whole experience. All the connections worked well, the people and places you introduced us to were welcoming and friendly and the ‘new’ taxi driver was great. We even managed a conversation with him on our drive back to Ronda at the end of the week. In summary we had a fantastic holiday. Jeremy & Anne (New south Wales) April 2019
It’s not often one comes to the end of a holiday and says ‘oh I wish I could begin all over again’ but we both did this time. You run an extremely efficient set up: met by Peter at the airport, taken to the bus, bags being collected on time and waiting for us at the next hotel, and the simple but excellent accommodation, all allowed us to relax and enjoy the walking. And what beautiful scenery to walk through! Every day got better, and we found your instructions and maps straightforward and easy to follow. We particularly enjoyed our casita in Montejaque, but all three lodgings/hotels were well placed, comfortable, and the staff friendly and tolerant of our Spanish. We were glad we’d allowed two extra days, as it meant we had time to throughly explore Ronda, and also have another walk up into the Valle de Libor, where we saw a Bonelli’s eagle hurray! The last walk around el Cerro Coros defies description, it is quite breathtaking. Sitting on the side of the hill watching the vultures gliding beneath us is something we shall both remember for ever. Best wishes, Janie and James (Devon) September 2016
We both had a very enjoyable holiday even if it did seem to be over very quickly. Your itinerary and route plans were spot on and very easy to follow. Don’t think we got lost or went wrong once! All in all we had a very enjoyable week. The villages and towns were spectacular – clean and well looked after. The narrow cobbled streets negotiated by many cars amazing. We felt we had truly sampled the culture and traditions of Spanish society. Thank you once again. Mark and James (North Yorkshire) Oct 2015
Just a note to say how happy we were with the holiday you put together for us. Both myself and Janet found it perfect from start to finish, the organisation, bag transfers, hotels, destinations and most of all the choice of walks. We enjoyed every minute of it and we both felt at the end that we had had a really good break. Kevin and Janet (Cheshire) Sept 2015
We had a wonderful time thank you and we really enjoyed the walks. The accommodation was really good and the meal you provided at the Casitas was just amazing. Max is a great chef – so creative and so committed to cooking excellent food. We ate there both nights and it was some of the best food we’d ever had. Everyone there was so friendly and the service was really good. Thank you very much for putting so much into making this such a good walking holiday. Pat, Jim & Joanna (Edinburgh) June 2015
Spanish Steps was brilliant – Your self guided walk notes gave us confidence to discover the beautiful countryside and despite the odd bit of rain we had an amazing time. The accommodation was superb throughout and we all agreed we want to come back next year. Thank you so much for your care and attention to detail and for the lovely food we enjoyed on the first night in Grazalema. Vivien,Andrew, Heather and John (N Ireland) Oct 2014
We were first-timers to walking holidays and first-timers to Spain. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We didn’t have a good idea about our walking fitness levels, but your timings for the walking times each day turned out to be fairly accurate for us. The area is lovely and the format works very well, having a night in Ronda, a couple of nights at the ‘Casitas’ and four at ‘La Mejorana’. The evening meal we had there was excellent, and the service was very good. The only disappointment that we had with the hotel in Ronda was that our room had no window to the outside. There was a window to the internal courtyard, but It would have been nicer if we had been able to feel the breeze! I hope this is of some help and we hope to see you again sometime soon.

Just to thank you  for the lovely holiday, we both enjoyed the walks. We really enjoyed our first village Montejaque , everyone was so friendly. The accommodation of self catering really suited us well although the restaurant on the premises was excellent. I am a professional caterer, so I can be fussy. Grazalama was nice, a little more touristy but accommodation was good although I think they trying a little bit too hard to be perfect. Thanking you againmEdna & Jim, Aberdeen, September 2013
We did really enjoy ourselves and the self-guided absolutely suits us as we like to feel ‘independent’ even when everything has been arranged for us! So – thanks very much for a successful ‘break’. Best wishes to you both. Sue & Josh April 2013
We really enjoyed our week of walking and we were so lucky to have such fantastic weather! (January) We thought the plan and pacing of the walks was excellent and suited us well. My favourite walk was Montejaque – Valle di Libar – Benaojan. Leo loved watching the Griffin Vultures up the Gargante Verde (the permit came through on time). We chose not to go all the way down the gorge but did the Cerro Coros walk at sunset. The accommodation was great, everyone very friendly and helpful.So thanks for helping us have a great experience, we’re now trying to get back to real life. Kate, (Australia) January 2013 
David and I enjoyed our holiday very much. The accommodation was splendid and the scenery magnificent and different. The fiesta in full swing on our arrival to Grazalema meant that the town was overwhelmed with pedestrians and car parks full to bursting. Andreas very kindly drove us up to the cark park to collect our car and guide us back to La Mejerana – this was extremely helpful. Thank you for all your organisation, good wishes to you both. Pat and David Roxburghshire October 2012.
We enjoyed our holiday very much, we loved both the areas but especially Grazalema – stunning and La Mejorana was a joy, the place the hospitality and the view, but having said that we loved the Casitas and felt like we were sitting in an aviary with all the activity with the little birds. We missed Antonio in the mornings though giving us breakfast and sending us off with a bocadillo! Thanks to you both for organising another great holiday, we’re really getting a taste for rural Spain. Alan and Veronica, Sheffield June 2012
