Day trip, walking and swimming: La Alcaicería, Los Ventorros and El Pato Loco

If you wish to combine nature and a leisurely walk through beautiful countryside in the shade of a canopy of poplar trees along a river bank, followed by lunch, and a cool splash and a sun bathe, this is a great day trip to make from Escuela La Crujia

Day trip to Alhama de Granada

This lovely town is totally trapped in time!  It still has very old fashioned little shops and lovely, crumbling buildings that look more central European than Southern Spanish!  Perched precariously on steep, deep ‘tajo’ (gorge), this is a most ‘visitable’, picturesque town, frequented by walking groups and curious tourists and well worth a day trip.

One of the best ways of experiencing the true Spanish spirit in all its colourful, animated glory, is to visit some of the local ferias and fiestas.

Wintering at Escuela La Crujia

In the long, drearly months of Winter, at the Escuela we look on the bright side both in the house and in our gardens, we often welcoming our ‘Winter hibernators’!

The gardens of the Escuela in Winter

In ‘normal’ countries, you mow the lawn in the Spring and Summer.  Not here, as the growing season for grass is during the cooler months of Autumn and Winter.  And flowers abound, really appreciating the cooler weather!

I stumbled across this wonderful old place with a friend when stolling through the narrow streets of the historic centre of Malaga and it’s well worth a visit!
