Authentic Andalucia

We had a fantastic week expolring Andalucia. The Cortijo is great, except for the bed. Really uncomfortable and rickety (Room 2) - we both came back with sore backs. The only decent sleep we got were the two nights in hotels. The rest of the facilities are fab though. Word of warning about the food at the cortijo- if you are a goody don't raise your hopes. Some was good but most was acceptable fuel for the day. And the paella finale was all about the looks and nothing about the taste. But that's being picky because the trip notes etc really big up the food. Sliced packet bread, processed cheese and desserts that are bought as powders and mixed with milk or vienetta gives you the context. The sun loungers and pool were very welcome at the end of the day. The programme was great, so much to see and do. We certainly weren't bored. Apart from the afternoon of day 2, there is very little chill time. That was fine for us but worth mentioning. We took naps on the minibus to catch up on sleep as the transfers are between 1-2 hours. Stunning scenery, fantastic history and history. Highly recommended.

Well chosen highlights of Andalucia

5
Well-chosen highlights of the Andalucia region and good mix of hiking, countryside and city. We had such a fantastic group of people and leader that the trip would have been wonderful in any event. But it was also well-designed and organized by Exodus. Only negative was that the accommodations at the Cortijo are basic. We had a small room facing the back with no view. The bed was too small for us so they squeezed a twin mattress into the room. So it was quite cramped. The setting is lovely which mostly offset this deficit since not much time is spent in the Cortijo. If one is fortunate to get a larger room with a view it would be a nicer experience.

A Golden Wedding Annivesary treat

It would be have been very easy to spend a leisurely week at Cortijo Rosario enjoying the countryside, the ambiance of the villa and the pool. Indeed the location is stunning and the villa very homely but there is far more to Andalusia than farmhouses swallows and olive groves. The itinerary is flexible but it would be foolish not to take the inclusive excursions to both Seville and Granada, these take up the best part of four days and cover the finest aspects of Moorish architecture and culture in both these cities with exciting interludes en-route including the equally interesting sights of Olvera, Sentenil, Antequera and the El Torcal NP.

We saw the highlights of Andalucia, drank a lot of wine and ate a lot of tapas. And good company every day. Holy Week made it extra interesting and there are many towns we wouldn't know existed, some real gems.

We booked this trip because it covered all the things we wanted to do in Andalucia and was based in a quiet location rather than a big city, and we weren't disappointed. The cortijo is lovely and the views stunning, but as the weather turned increasingly hot (up to 48C!) the lack of even basic air-conditioning was a bit of a problem, especially at night. The pool was a very welcome sight at the end of a hot day's sightseeing! All the trips came up to expectations, and it was good that after an initial orientation walk the leader Alexis left us to our own devices. The food was also very good, although the breakfasts were rather basic and the croissants came wrapped in plastic - and tasted like it too.

This was an excellent opportunity to see Spanish Culture at first hand, we were lucky with the weather and the tour leader was very good and knowledgeable. Extra trip to Cordoba has to be done. The whole break was well organised and I would recommend to anyone wanting to see Andalucía. Only downside there is a lot of minibus travel at least 1.5/2hours away from base each day and the Conjita Farmhouse is a bit tired, otherwise, with this in mind I recommend it.

This was our third exodus trip and up to our expectations. You get a great feel for Andalucia with the just the right mix of sightseeing a bit of walking and a good hotel to relax in. As usual the organisation was excellent
