Day trips from our Bed and Breakfast in Andalusia

Day trips from our Bed and Breakfast in Andalusia

There is a lot to do. Our B&B is centrally located in Andalusia for various trips
Get in the mood and watch the video .

Malaga 30 min
Most guests fly into Málaga Airport and leave with a rental car to explore Andalusia. Do not forget to visit the city of Málaga. At only 30 minutes from our B&B you are in the historic center of the capital of the province of the same name.

There is something for everyone to do: shopping in Calle Marqués de Larios, visiting historical monuments such as the Cathedral from 1700 or the Castillo Gilbralfaro and nearby the Alcazaba fortress.

For those who love gardens, Jardin de la Concepción is a must, just on the outskirts of Málaga on the route to our B&B in Riogordo.
Prefer to stroll on the boulevard at the harbor? That is also possible. Marvel at the huge cruise ships that dock there and give their passengers the opportunity to explore Málaga.
In the unlikely event that it is rainy or too hot, visit one of the museums: Museo Carmen Thyssen, Center Pompidou (an annex of Paris) or the Picasso museum. Pablo Picasso is also a native Malagueño. You can visit his birthplace. For more tips you can of course just knock on our door.

Granada 65 minutes
An hour's drive from our B&B is the historic city of Granada with the world-famous Alhambra (click here to book tickets). A huge historic palace from Moorish times, well worth a visit. It is not for nothing that it is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Albaucin district at the foot of the Alhambra, with nice restaurants and narrow alleys, is also well worth a visit. What is special about Granada is that you almost always see snow on the mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada. Incidentally, the snow peaks can often be seen near our B&B.

Antequera 40 minutes
A special city, but less known in our province of Málaga. 30,000 inhabitants, nice center and a beautiful arena. Well worth a visit and a nice walk through the city center. Combines well with a walk on El Torcal, an impressive mountain range and the saltwater lagoon Fuente de Piedra. A salt lake where flamingos breed. And that too only 30 minutes from our B&B in Andalusia and therefore a nice trip.

In the morning nice walk in the nature park and then around 2 pm lunch in the city and then back to our finca for a refreshing dip in the pool. Of course you can still enjoy a sunset that never bores us.
Please note that the shops in Antequera are closed from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Ronda 55 minutes
After a delicious breakfast at our B&B and a beautiful drive of about 1.5 hours you will reach Ronda, one of the oldest cities in Spain. Located on a mountain plateau of 2500 m above sea level. The city is best known for the El Tajo gorge that splits the old and new city, but is now connected again by the mighty bridge Puente Nuevo.

Ronda is touristy, but definitely worth a day trip. Take a different route on the outward journey than on the return journey and enjoy the special landscapes. We can advise you on a number of beautiful car routes from our B&B. Then you can enjoy the fantastic surroundings even more.

Cordoba 100 minutes
Another city that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We are, of course, talking about the Mezquita . First a Catholic church, then demolished and in 756 a Mosque was built. After the last Moors were expelled from the region, the building was transformed into a cathedral again in 1236. The church is actually built around the Mosque. This has created a unique structure that is really worth a visit.

But if you are in the city anyway, walk through the narrow streets. And if you have time left, visit the Medina Azahara, located just outside Cordoba. That is an old walled Arab city from the time of the Caliphate of Cordoba.

Marbella 60 minutes
Would you like to see how the jet set experiences the Costa del Sol, then take a day trip to Marbella. Marvel at the large yachts and expensive cars and enjoy the old town. The drive there is mainly between towers of hotels and apartments; you now also know why we chose our B&B on the other side of Málaga.

Day at the beach and sea
Our B&B does not have a sea view, but you can easily reach the coast with the wonderful beaches of the Costa del Sol. In the city of Málaga there are fantastic beaches to relax in and plenty of cozy traditional eateries. The wide beaches at Torre del Mar are quieter, with also excellent eateries and the so-called chiringuito's: beach bars where you can eat freshly grilled fish.

A little further along the coast, just past Nerja, lies the village of Maro, where there are beautiful quiet bays hidden between the mountains. If you want more excitement, the beaches at Torremolinos and Benalmádena are also an option.

Nature and hiking
It is recommended to put on your walking shoes once in a while. You can take beautiful walks from the B&B. Or take the car and drive to El Torcal or Nerja, for example. And if you can get a ticket then you should definitely walk the Caminito del Rey ! A bit crowded, but definitely a bucket list item. If this does not work, we also have a spectacular walking tour at Canillas de Aceituno. The alternative to the Caminito del Rey.

At about a 1.5 hour drive from our B&B you are already on the slopes. From November to April it is possible to enjoy the snow. Hiking, skiing, snowboarding or just enjoying the beautiful winter view.

The environment of our B&B in Andalusia is mountainous, ideal for the trained cyclist. There are beautiful routes with both climbs and descents. On the coast it is possible to cycle flat. We ourselves have 2 e-bikes that you can rent. Of course we also have contacts with bicycle rental companies that can arrange something for you.
