Free time activities
Concerts and music
Your stay here will provide you with memories and skills you will never forget! As well as those featuring the nature and horses, there are festivals and parties that take place in all the villages.
The big water fight in Atajate is in August; there is a German beer festival in Jimera de Libar in October and mushroom festivals in November. In summer there are music and horse festivals, foam parties and more! The beautiful local ‘white villages’ vary from 2,000 inhabitants down to a population of less than 200 and are well worth a visit.
As well as the villages, there are towns to visit. Ronda is around 25km away and is on a main coast to city train route. It boasts a spectacular viaduct as well as many other historic sites and a variety of shops. After exploring these, the huge variety of cafes and bars will offer welcome refreshment.
If, however, you prefer a break from civilisation then you will be in your element. The surrounding mountains, forests and river are beautiful, peaceful and watched over by soaring eagles. Close by there are natural sites to visit such as the Canyon of the Vultures.
There are guided walks to vast caves with ancient cave paintings. A Pa lo-Christian church is tucked away off the beaten track and an Arab tower is hidden in the countryside with not a tourist in sight.
The beach is approximately 1½ hours’ drive away. Trips can be arranged at an extra cost on your days off, e.g. to the coast or other cities such as Málaga and Sevilla. Transport: You can hire a car from Málaga, or there is a bus leaving every week day morning from Atajate to Ronda, and returning at midday.
