Great Things to Do Near Llanama
As you relax after dining 'al fresco' on Llanama's lovely terrace, look up at the clear night sky. You'll be amazed at how many stars you can see, and may be able to see the Milky Way!
Enjoy some real Flamenco
Flamenco is passionate and seductive, mysterious and misunderstood. A culture that has been burning in Andalucía for hundreds of years. Enjoy a chance to see some Flamenco dancing at its best with truly mesmerising guitar performances and song at El Quinqué, near to the bullring Ronda. https://www.elquinqueronda.com/
Have a day at the beach
The glorious beaches of the Costa de la Luz can be reached in an hour and a half. Treat yourself to a day on the golden sand, swimming in the clear aquamarine waters of the Atlantic, and a seafood lunch in a 'chiringuito' beach restaurant, accompanied by a crisp local white wine. Then plenty of time for a seaside siesta before returning to the peace and quiet of Llanama and your own swimming pool.
La Alhambra - Granada
Granada can be reached in just over two hours’ drive. Explore the old Muslim quarter of Granada city, the Albaicín, then wander around the mesmerising Alhambra Palace. Entrance tickets are timed, so you can book in advance and plan your day in this lovely city accordingly. Tickets must be booked well in advance, so book online before your holiday to avoid being disappointed! https://tickets.alhambra-patronato.es/en/
Seek out local products
Visit a working mill to buy olive oil, and look out for soap and other cosmetic items which are also made from this wonderful product. Buy a 'barra' from the bakery. Pop into a bodega to stock up on locally produced wine, and a selection of cheeses from the local farms. Markets sell fresh fruit, veg, olives and pickles. Take them home for a feast, or enjoy a ready-made picnic!
Take a day trip to Cadiz
Featured recently on many travel and cuisine TV programmes, Cadiz is just a 90-minute drive away. This small city known locally as "la Isla", the island, it is completely surrounded by the sea. Its majestic Cathedral sits along the shores of the Atlantic coast. Narrow streets full of charm and old-world character can easily be explored on foot. Visit the lively fish market and be amazed at the fresh tuna caught locally. Then spend the afternoon on the beach relaxing!
Explore El Gastor
Wander round this pretty village, with its white-washed walls and wrought iron balconies with cascades of colourful geraniums. The locals are all very feindly and welcome visitors with open arms.
Relax in style
Llanama's large poolside terrace is perfect for relaxing on a sunbed with a good book and a cool drink to hand. It's also ideal for birdwatchers who prefer to pursue their hobby lying down!
Enjoy some great local food
In El Gastor village there are now several bars, cafes and resturants to choose from. Very popular is the new Gastrobar La Piscina, at the local swimming pool. You can enjoy lovely views over the village and high class food at great prices.
Spot the 'gaita'
A gaita is a musical instrument you will find in El Gastor and hardly anywhere else. It is made from a cow's horn with a reed in one end, and was traditionally played by local youths as they sat around bonfires to keep warm in the winter months. If you can't find the real thing, there's a statue of one outside the Town Hall of this pretty village.
Jerez for horse lovers
It is an easy drive from Llanama to the lovely city of Jerez, and horse lovers shouldn't miss the 'How The Andalucían Horses Dance' show at the Royal School of Equestrian Art on Thursdays.
Wander Round Ronda
Ronda is barely 30 kilometres from Llanama, and is a beautiful town. Peer over the gorge from the safety of the 'Puente Nuevo' bridge, stroll through the ancient cobbled streets and admire the old city walls, visit the Wine Museum, and rummage through the antique shops for a genuine bargain.
Countryside made for walking
If you like walking, then this area is for you. The famous Grazalema natural park is a short drive away, but El Gastor has its own attractions for walkers. And believe it or not, the large peak behind the village can be reached easily on foot and the views from there are incredible.
Go sunset Kayaking on the lake
Groups can enjoy kayaking on the lake in the cooler evening air whilst watching the beautiful sunset behind the castle at Zahara.
Shop for local crafts
Especially in nearby Ronda, Grazalema and Zahara, there are some charming small craft shops selling unique art objects, ceramics, rugs and baskets made from olive branches and grasses. You can also buy leather goods, glazed tiles and beautiful wool shawls hand-woven locally.
