Guests stay in traditional village houses in the charming Andalucia white village of Torrox. All our houses have been both sympathetically restored and furnished with all modern conveniences and most have their own shower/wc, satellite TV, washing machine, fridge freezer. All linen is provided and all the houses have beautiful terraces with views over the village, the surrounding countryside or the sea. Houses are allocated on a shared basis. All our bedrooms have their own bathroom. We do have a limited number of one-bedroomed houses if you prefer not to share.
A breakfast welcome pack is placed in all the houses (breakfast to be taken on a self-catering basis). Otherwise lunches are provided on walk days and main meals, which are taken as a group and hosted by Gill & Dave, are provided at a selection of hand picked restaurants, including wine and soft drinks (except on rest day).

The walks all start from different parts of the Axarquia - the name given to the region to the east of Malaga. All the walks start within one hour's drive of the village of Torrox. Transport is by 4 X 4 vehicle or mini bus from Torrox Pueblo. The walks are up to 5 - 6 hours duration at a pace that allows you to appreciate the beauty of our surroundings.
When booking, you will be asked about your walking requirements and we are always happy to provide a less strenuous programme for those who wish an easier option. More details on request.
