Walking around Alhama

We have mapped some fantastic local walks for our guests which we can send you as an app or print out for you to take with you. Walking in this area is wonderful at any time of the year. In summer - stroll to a cool swim and laze with a book in the shade; autumn brings rich, golden colours; beautiful winter blue skies and snowy peaks and spring - a delightful fresh breeze and beautiful wildflowers.

We have walks that take you directly out of town into olive and almond orchards with stunning views of all the surrounding mountain ranges. Others up in the mountains themselves with knockout views to Lake Bermejales, the Sierra Nevada mountains and the coast. Or stroll along gorgeous Lake Bermejales and pick a spot for a refreshing swim in turquoise water. All local, with breathtaking views and available to you when you come to stay with us.

It’s always possible to combine a walk with a stop off in a great restaurant for lunch or take a coolbox from the house and enjoy a delicious picnic …… As well as spotting lots of wildlife along your walk (see wildlife page!) there are plenty of wild edibles to enjoy - rocket, garlic, asparagus, capers and watercress, figs, quince, plums, mulberries, brambles, chestnuts and loads of local herbs such as thyme, rosemary, basil, borage, lavender, mint, chamomile, fennel - help yourself!

We know all the great places to go and are very happy to help you plan your days out, tailored especially for what you would like to see and do. Below is an example walk for you to enjoy, it’s the classic Alhama walk, The Gorge Walk - from the town head down into the gorge and walk along the river through beautiful wild countryside to two fantastic restaurants opposite a little lake. Enjoy a snack, lunch, a swim in the pool or a spa then come back to Alhama along the top of the gorge through olive and almond orchards with lovely views of our pueblo perched along the other side of the deep ravine. Finish up with a delicious cool beer and tapas in the square. It’s a wonderful day out!
