This was our first organized walking holiday, and we couldn't have chosen a better place - we were met at Malaga airport by a taxi arranged from the hotel and after a short motorway drive we turned onto a series of narrow winding roads up into the hills, After passing through a few of the beautifully white Andulasian villages we were at Hotel Finca el Cerrillo. The first impression is one of astonishment at the love that has been put into converting an olive mill into a small private hotel. Every corner you turn has something special to see, from the beautiful tree house, the glorious gardens, secluded courtyard and shady sitting out areas, not to mention the welcoming swimming pool. Sue and Gordon (the English owners) and the rest of the staff go the extra mile to make you feel at home. In fact, at the end of the week, we felt we had been staying in someone's private house, it was that personal. The walking exceeded our expectations - you could choose what grade of walk you wanted to do each day, and several of us in our group "mixed and matched" throughout the week. Our guides were so helpful and attentive to our welfare that you felt very safe even walking up some rather narrow mountain paths. The food was delicious, both at the hotel and eating out. On our rest day, we sampled wines at the local Bodega, even trying a wine that was served at the wedding of the King of Spain. My only complaint on this holiday, which has nothing to do with the hotel, was flying home from Malaga airport. The queues were horrendous so do give yourself a good 2 - 3 hours before flying if you don't want to get stressed! This is definitely a corner of heaven and we hope to return before too long.
