The Andalucia region

Torre Alhaquime and its neighbour, Olvera are just two of the "Pueblos Blancos" - "White Towns" of Andalucia, all are characterised by the whitewashed walls, most frequently set in amongst the sierras.

The main towns and villages to visit when staying in and around Torre Alhaquime are:

Olvera - traditional Arab town with castle and a wide range of shops and resturants.

Zahara de la Sierra - it is next to a reservoir/lake with castle. Stunning views. You can hire canoes and swim during summer time.

Garganta Verde and Ermita de la Garganta - This is an amazing walk from the Grazalema area, there are caves with stalactites and stalagmites.

Puerto de las Palomas - right at the very top towards Grazalema, stop here for some breath taking views, as well as bird life such as eagles and vultures.

Grazalema - A gorgeous little town.

Villaluenga del Rosario - the highest of the White Towns and also one of the prettiest.

Benaocaz - this is an Arab town with the remains of a fortress.

Ubrique - the largest of the White Towns.

Benamahoma - contains the Fuente de Nacimiento of Majaceite river.

El Bosque - trout fishing and hang gliding can be done here.

Algodonales - a traditional 16th century town with some Roman ruins. Paragliding and paramotor schools here.

El Gastor - Balcón de los Pueblos Blancos with an interesting church

Setenil de las Bodegas - a stunning village built into the rocks and an Arab fortress

Alcalá del Valle - has megalithic standing stones nearby

Arcos de la Frontera - Interesting town perched on a cliff - Baroque churches

Bornos and Villamartín - Huge reservoir and Roman ruins

Cortes de la frontera - the Pileta Paleolithic Cave paintings.

Vejer de la Frontera - for something much further afield, Vejer is a stunning, Moorish, town on the Costa de La Luz.

El Chorro - a 90 mins drive into the Malaga region is well worth the journey. The lakes during summer time are the perfect place for a swim, or to hire a pedalo. The terrifying "Camino del Rey" is also here.....see it and imagine the workers making this treacherous journey.

Seville (1hr) and the Alhambra at Granada (2 hrs) are well worth a days visit and easily accessed by nearby motorways.

Olvera

Torre Alhaquime is an old Arabic settlement and one of the towns on the 'Pueblos Blancos' - white towns route. In nearby Olvera (3km), visit the Arabic castle and wander around the narrow streets of the town, stopping to take in the views of the surrounding stunning countryside and sample Andalusian cuisine and tapas in one of the many local bars and restaurants.

Lake Zahara is close by and has a man made beach open in the summer.

Numerous cycle and walking routes start from Torre Alhaquime and the Via Verde (green road) in Olvera and is great for walking and cycling (including cycle hire). The area is famous for its bird life.

Golf is within 45 minutes.

The town is well served by a good road network to the airports, beaches and cities - many within 1hr.

"A little gem in the heart of Andalucia"

We stayed at Trescastillos in April, around Easter time. The house is compact but clean, airy and traditionally decorated - a perfect base for exploring. The views across the olive groves from the kitchen, main bedroom and roof terrace are stunning. There are heaters there but we didn't use them as it was pleasantly warm when we went. The beds are comfortable (bedlinen provided), the kitchen is well-equipped and there is a full bathroom and washing machine. The living room includes a dining table and chairs but, to be honest, we ate up on the roof terrace where there's a picnic set for breakfast and dinner in the sunshine, and those views! Torre is a proper "white town"; there's a bar at the end of the street, where the old men slap their dominoes down, and a small shop opposite. Below that there's a pharmacy. We visited Zahara and Ronda, which is just stunning, and the caves at Sentinel - and there's a great fruit & veg market in Olvera where you can buy peaches and tomatoes as big as your hand, amongst many other things. Overall, we had a fab time and loved staying at the house - I think we'll definitely make a return visit as with cheap flights to Malaga (and Jerez, I think?) this provides excellent value for money if you're desperate for some warm sunshine and a change of scenery without the escalating costs of package deals. Also, we didn't get round to visiting Seville and the Alhambra, which is in easy driving distance - lots of excuses to go back!

Really pleased you had a good holiday and enjoyed our white washed house and all that it has to offer. A new bar has opened since your last visit now making four bars in the village; the tapas is especially good and it's just a few minutes walk from the house. We love the area and like you enjoy the mix of sightseeing and relaxing - it's a lovely base for exploring Andalucia. Remember we offer a 15% reduction on return bookings so hope to see you again.
