The landscapes of rural Andalucìa can be breathtaking and one of the best ways to appreciate their diversity and beauty is on foot.
La Majada Alta cottage and Loma la Parra country house are at the heart of the particularly outstanding walking countryside of El Valle de Abdalajis and El Chorro. With such a variety of routes and interesting landscapes you can be confident of enjoyable walking whatever your level of ability and fitness.
Adventurous walkers head for the mountains where you can walk for many hours following the steep goat trails that can lead you from El Valle de Abdalajis over to the lakes. Or climb up from the village to la sierra de Valle de Abdalajis, staying on the high ridges. Strike out for the peaks of La Capilla or La Huma at over 1,100 meters or alternatively descend towards El Chorro for lunch and return home by the valley road.
There are wonderful walks around the more gentle slopes of the valley with marked tracks to follow taking you past ancient farm houses where you will see gardens of peppers, tomatoes, garlic, onions, melons and open, unfenced, fields of wheat, barley and corn. You will find numerous circular routes with spectacular views of the mountains, to bring you back to the village or to your door.
