More than just sun

Holidays is resting, looking for some private space, distance from day to day concerns, sleeping in, seeing new things, recharging your batteries.  Some people think ony of beaches and palm trees when they think of of Andalusia.
Inland Andalucia however is a completely different story. Ronda lies high on a plateau in the interior of the province of Málaga, at about 700 meters altitude, which gives it a different climate.

So the best reason to choose for a holiday in Ronda is, that something can always be seen or done from here, in whatever season.
October to May is the best time to go for long walks or bike rides in the Ronda Mountains, without running the risk of suffering sunstroke. (Hats or caps and lots of water however are best prevention!)
The period from March to May is particularly overwhelming when the wildflowers bloom in abundance and the nightingales incessantly perform their seductive songs. July and August are more suitable for daytime lounging and hanging around the pool, and in the evenings sit outside untill the wee hours enjoying the freshness of the night. June and September are the most pleasant months with lots of sunshine and pleasant temperatures that are still not too hot. These months are very good to go for an early morning walk, to read books, have a long siesta or visit the surrounding cities or villages for day trips.

The White Villages of Andalucia

The famous white villages in and around the Serrania de Ronda are all within easy reach. Each has its own character and its own customs and traditions. Visit Grazalema in the mountains and surrounded by cork oaks, or Zahara for its beautiful location at the top of the big lake. Setenil has cave dwellings, Benalauria or all villages in the Valle del Genal are surrounded by chestnut woods and the so typical Mediterranean forest. Gaucin with its narrow streets gives top stunning views of Gibraltar and even Africa on a clear day.
Wool blankets are made ​​in Grazalema, cheeses in Villaluengua, sausages in Arriate, Benaoján and Montejaque, almond cookies in Atajate, leather goods in Ubrique, guitars in Algodonales .. And in almost all villages are restaurants serving typical local dishes.
One village has distinguished itself from the ‘white villages’: Júzcar has in 2011 exchanged her white outfit for ‘smurf blue’, on the occasion of the world premiere of the 3-D film ‘The Smurfs’. Since then, tourism in the hamlet of slightly more than 200 inhabitants has been booming and it was decided to, for the time being, maintain the colour of their houses blue.
