Winter Breaks in the heartland of Andalusia -
Serranía de Ronda with Spanish Nature

Why not treat yourself to either a short or long winter’s break in the mountain wilderness of Andalusia? The area known as the Serranía de Ronda is a prime destination for those simple pleasures such as country walks, observing wildlife and enjoying the famous culinary delights of the region. An area of outstanding natural beauty, history and culture make this the ideal getaway from the winter blues.


Just 1 hour away from the international airport at Malaga, a point of entry serviced by all major airlines and airports throughout Europe, makes getting here easy. Hire your car at the airport and head into the interior, arriving at the hotel of your choice in Ronda after a relaxed drive through an ever changing and beautiful landscape. Make your own choices of dates, hotels, restaurants, car hire and simply hop onto your flight to enjoy a well earned winter’s break!

Need help choosing your hotel based on such things as location, budget and comfort? We are able to recommend hotels based on unsolicited advice from many happy visitors’ experiences, which we can share with you. Importantly, we do not accept or receive commissions or benefits from any hotels we recommend.

What leading wildlife guide, Peter Jones, has to say about the area
It has become a joke amongst friends that I often refer to the Serranía as ‘my mountains’, but that’s exactly how I feel and nothing gives me more pleasure than to have the opportunity to write about them. Well, that’s not strictly true, guiding people here and sharing my understanding of the area and its wildlife probably rates as an equal first. There can be few other places where its possible to see such a diverse landscape by travelling very short distances, from dramatic limestone mountains to soft rolling green hills and fine old mixed woodlands, the area has it all. Is it any wonder I shamelessly promote, bully and encourage anyone who will listen to visit here?


We have some great scenery and wildlife in the area, not just here in the mountains of the Serranía de Ronda, but also in the surrounding districts. Our winter breaks take you from mountains to true steppe habitats, natural lagoons and through stunningly beautiful scenery; we just about have it all. From your base in the old quarters of the historical town of Ronda, we are offering the opportunity to spend a day with the region’s foremost wildlife guide Peter Jones. Not just a day to show you the natural world here, but coupled with super scenery and Peter’s insight to local culture and history, then the day will be one to remember. The day is easy paced and with a lunch stop at a typical local restaurant you can expect a thoroughly enjoyable excursion.


We have designed 3 very specific and special days, each with its own particular appeal and each a very different experience. You can decide which day you would prefer, or perhaps choose to indulge yourself with arranging all 3 days! The key here is flexibility; it is your choice to take 1, 2 or 3 day tours in the area. Whatever you decide, a winter break in our area will provide you with a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. If you need any further information or simply have a query, please contact us.
