This part of Andalusia is still unspoilt. The sun shines more than 300 days a year. Narrow country lanes lead to small white villages scattered over the surrounding hills where people still live their lives, like a hundred years ago according to age-old traditions, inherited from their Iberian, Roman and Moorish forefathers.

The white-washed villages are impressive historical monuments in themselves with a special appeal for the adventurous travellers.
The stunning castellated town of Vejer de la Frontera is a magical place to explore, its quiet cobbled streets meandering through a charming jumble of secret corners, hidden patios and delightful houses.

Most Andalusian towns began as fortresses along the ever-fluctuating frontier (Frontera) between the Christian and Moorish realms, as is apparent in the names of such towns as "Jerez de la Frontera", "Arcos de la Frontera".

Many of the villages in the highlands of Andalusia remain tough places, where the outdoor life shows on the faces of its inhabitants. These villages have over the centuries developed into thriving agricultural centres producing olive oil, goat's milk, fruits and vegetables.

Nearby are the historic cities like Cádiz, Jerez de la Frontera and Sevilla.

A two day trip gives you the opportunity to visit Cordoba and Granada with its famous Alhambra
(book in advance!).
