When you are thinking of authentic Andalusian architecture you instantly think of Cortijos in Andalusia. The old farmhouses, built around a courtyard. In the old days only a small part was used for living, the mayority of the building was dedicated to the farm and consited of stables and barns.
Living in Andalusia
Ronda takes a fifth place in the ranking of most atractive areas for rural tourism in Spain. Not a surprise to us as all. Ronda is a delight! Either for a short stay in a rural B&B or to live semi-permanent in your own cortijo.
Although Casares is worth a visit every weekend, the weekend of the 17th and 18th of April 2015 is going to be extra special, so don’t miss out! This weekend you can enjoy to wander around this authentic Andalusian village, climb the Sierra Crestellina, learn the local dance ‘the Fandango’ taste the delicious local dishes and finish off with a Flamenco evening
The temperatures were rising up to 28ºC in Andalusia, this week. It felt almost like summer. Our clients were enjoying their holiday houses in Casares, combining their stay in the mountains with lazy afternoons on the beach.
Winter has nearly arrived in Casares as well and yes, at night it can get a little bit chilly in our house in the mountains. Temperatures during the day still rise to 20 degrees on a sunny day and the views in this time of the year are breathtaking. The crisp clear sky makes that you can see miles away. The Atlas mountains seem around the corner.
Last summer, before I moved to Spain, I was spending a holiday for a one week in Gaucin with my family. Such an adorable little country village and the countryside is so beautiful. After staying a week in those views, you may have a little crush on Gaucin and you definitely want to go back there!
