What To Expect
Get to know the real Andalucía far away from the busy Costa de Sol and Tourist Resorts. The trip will take you 1 hour up the mountainous road by the Parque Nacional de Grazalema boasting beautiful rolling forest hills and mountains.
The first stop will be a historic olive oil mill dating back to the 1700's and nestled between the "Sierra of Grazalema" (Cadiz) and "Sierra de Las Nieves" (Malaga), it is one of the last surviving mills to produce olive oil the artisan ways of old and whose main attraction must be Juan, the head family member and owner of the mill. He is a true ambassador of his business and will get particularly animated about the intricacies of Artisan Olive Oil making!
Once the tour is finished you will be able to sample his oil with some country bread and a glass of his home made wine and even have the opportunity to purchase some of his oil and olive oil hand cream which works wonders!
Next you will depart for a local Organic Vineyard 20 minutes away where you will have a tour of the facilities and the learn the differences of this laborious preparation and attention to detail to ensure the highest quality of grape used for the organic winemaking. Lunch will follow where you can soak in the harmonious surroundings and sample the various wines on offer. Conclude with a brief walk through the natural gardens.
If you are able to leave after this wholesome experience where a nice siesta is in order, an optional stop in Ronda is possible on the way back to the resort. Here you will have a brief tour of the city visiting the famous "Puente Nuevo" (new bridge); the symbol and soul of the city, the bull ring (one of the oldest in Andalucia) and the main street for a spot of shopping if so desired.
A thoroughly fulfilling day you will not forget.
