I hope I can get some help with my itinerary planning. My wife and I will be traveling in late September. We enjoy exploring cities and towns, walking around, eating with and meeting the locals (not tourist places), and taking in the beauty. We do not like museums.
Our initial list includes, Jerez (sherry tasting), Cadiz, exploring at least 2 "pueblos blancos", Rhonda, Granada, and beach time perhaps at or near Nerja and/or Malaga. We are also toying with a quick drive into southern Portugal to Tavira.
Then we would need to end up in a location where we easily and economically can get back to Madrid for our flight home the next morning.
I would appreciate your ideas and comments on this itinerary, and perhaps a suggested route to follow?
Also any ideas of great locations where I should overnight? Currently I thought we would overnight in Cadiz, Rhonda, Granada, Malaga, and the Parador in Carmona. One night stands are OK with us.
Your advice is always appreciated.
