Ready to explore Andalusia

I am preparing to travel to the South of Spain. The last week has been pretty cold and cloudy in Spain, but it seems that the good weather is back this weekend, and I am ready to try the famous beaches of Andalusia.
I'll be travelling to Seville and Malaga next week. I hope to visit the famous Nerja, my friends have told me that it's beautiful but I haven't been there yet. We'll be gathering some useful information fot the Tour Spain Travel Guides website too.
Our first stop in the Andalusia tour will be Seville, which is the capital of the region and the largest city in Andalusia, from there we will be travelling to the city of Malaga, famous beach resort of the South of Spain, and then finally to the coast of Nerja and Torrox. We'll keep you updated with the best places sto visit, we'll be posting photos and more information soon.

sSpain’s secret the Altiplano de Granada is to start competing in the tourism market with a new web directory of Cave homes, cortijos, casas, B&B hotels, hostels, hotels and campsites. The site is aimed a rural tourists both from UK market and the European market, who are looking for an unusual place to stay but with the facilities of the more better known areas.
We are looking to affiliate ourselves with UK, European and Spanish travel agents keen to offer their customers a new experience in rural tourism.

The cave homes of the Altiplano de Granada offer just that, no two cave homes are the some yet have all the modern facilities that travelers require, some can sleep up to ten holiday makers at a time.

This area of Spain really is a Spanish secret the Spanish have been vacationing in the area for generations.
Surrounded by the high sierras of Spain this truly is a stunning area to visit, steeped in the history of the conflicts between the Moors and Christians. This is reflected in the architecture, customs and fiestas of the area.
Although the history of the Altiplano de Granada goes back even further with the sites of antiquity that abound the area. It is claimed that the Huescar region is the settling place of the first Europeans.
The area also houses natural caves like Cueva de Don Fernando and the aptly named Cueva de Muerto, "The cave of the dead" as it was here that were found ancient cave drawings.

Natural parks surround the area with over night resting places for walkers, hiker’s and horse riders. Whilst the huge variety of flora and fauna is outstanding with some varieties of plant and animal life unique to the Altiplano de Granada.
Only one and a half hours from Granada international airport it's almost a strep back in history, whitewashed villages like Castril de la Pena or complete villages of cave homes like Galera and Castillejar. Orce with its ancient sites of archeological interest, Baza with the statue of the Dama de Baza thought to be a former Iberian queen.
www.spanish-holiday-accommodation.com The new site has online availability and booking, activity arrangement and car hire a link to allow on line flight reservations, although we are actively seeking help to integrate this into the site.
Agents will have direct access to the booking engine and availability calendars, a web based form to request activities will also be available.

Of course I envy you. Everybody should, because Andalusia is a world on its own. So many beautiful places! Wonderful cities The Atlantic coast, the Jerez region, Rondo and surrounding area, Bermejales, the Sierra Nevada, the Alpujarras, and so on. You can travel there for years.
One suggestion for those travelling in the Nerja region: take the old road N340 to Almu├▒├ęcar (passing the protected coastal area Acantillados de Maro-Cerro Gordo) and continu on the Carretera del Suspiro del Moro to Granada. Breathtaking! Back to Nerja you can take the motorway to Motril and then on to Nerja.
