Excursions and Highlights
Our surroundings are fantastic and Andalusia is so diverse and charming that it is not possible to explore everything in a single holiday. Even we are always amazed how much there is to discover and experience every day.
There are travel guides about Andalusia to fill shelves, and everyone certainly has their favorite. But since there is much more to see and do besides the typical travel tips, we have listed here some special highlights, which we believe are definitely worth a trip.
Jimena and its festivals
Only those who venture off the main road will discover new things! Here we go! See some of our special tips:
Take the train to Ronda via the Vulture Gorge
From Los Angeles, Jimena de la Frontera’s railway station there are 2 daily trains to and from Ronda.
Tip: take the morning train in Summer that goes through the Vulture Gorge and watch the sunrise. A wonderful ride, you also save the search for a parking space in Ronda, the train ride does not cost much and a visit to Ronda is a must anyway.
Lanas del Rio – weaving in the old mill
In an old mill near Gaucin, which was completely restored in 1994, the English couple Paul and Dawn Sutcliffe weave the finest yarn into wonderfully soft woolen garments. Ponchos, blankets, scarves, everything made of high-quality materials such as cashmere, alpaca, merino or silk can be seen and bought there.
Take the guided tour with the owners and learn about the craft of weaving in this authentic woolen mill.
Bodega F. Schatz
For wine lovers and nature lovers a visit to the F. Schatz winery is a very interesting excursion day out. Friedrich Schatz makes organic, biodynamic wines in the wine-growing region of the Serrana de Ronda, which, due to its height and the Mediterranean climate, has ideal conditions for the vines. His knowledge of permaculture and the perfectly coordinated plant cultivation makes a visit to his small finca not only worthwhile and not only for wine connoisseurs.
By e-bike through Gibraltar
It is a special feeling to walk across the border and cross the runway to get to Gibraltar, but then also to explore the city by e-bike exceeds all expectations. Those who were told Gibraltar was boring, they have never seen it from the bike, let alone from the e-bike.
Roman baths de la Hedionda
A ticket reservation is necessary.
Sightseeing flights with a paraglider
Walter Hellmann is probably one of the most cheerful and unusual people we have met here. He likes to share his airy hobby of flying his paraglider with adventurous visitors. Discover the beauty of Andalusia from the sky – an experience you will remember for a long time! Get in and feel like Karlsson on the roof in Walter’s flying machine.
