Each week includes a full day out, usually up to the mountain villages where you can sample a very different way of life, explore the marvellous countryside, picnic or swim in wild mountain streams. (Bathing under waterfalls is a favourite summer sport here!)
In the afternoons (or at weekends if you stay for two weeks) you can walk or organise your own excursions - although we strongly suggest that you take things easy and don't try to pack in too much.
Gerald Brenan's classic South From Granada (Penguin) gives an excellent idea of the area and its history. More recent accounts are Driving Over Lemons and A Parrot In A Pepper Tree (Penguin) by Chris Stewart.
