The most popular attraction in Andalusia - Los Pueblos Blancos
These whitewashed towns that populate many of the hilltops of Andalusia have become one of the most iconic sights of the region. After exploring the cities of Seville, Malaga and Cordoba, these charming towns are a great escape from all the tourism and buzz of the larger cities. You will find most of these villages within the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, hence all of the white towns are surrounded by beautiful nature and offer a more relaxing pace of experiencing the Spanish lifestyle. It is fortunately only possible to arrive by car, so make sure to put a visit to at least one of these iconic towns on your itinerary.
Vacation rentals available all year-round!
The sunny and endless coastlines of Andalusia attract many Spanish and foreign visitors each summer, but the region is just as delightful during the colder months of the year. During these months demand for vacation rentals is lower (so is the price) and your choices of accommodation will be greater, whereas you should try to book as early as possible for a vacation during the warmer summer months. Furthermore exploring the terrain, whether it be hiking in the mountains or mountain biking through the valleys, will be less heated in these months.
