Energetic springtime visitors will get to view some of the 2,000 species of blossoming wild flowers in the pristine valley while on marked walks between the seven white villages of the Upper Genal Valley ("Alto Genal" in Castilian). 

Autumnal visitors will enjoy the changing colours of the chestnut trees while summertime visitors can swim & relax poolside at the hotel or participate in extreme outdoor adventures in and around the Genal River in Júzcar; for birdwatchers, there are many varieties of migrating birds year round throughout the Serrania de Ronda (Ronda mountains). For everyone all year, the mountaintops offer spectacular views, including all the way to Africa! We are also surrounded by four large natural parks splendidly full with nature, La Sierra de las Nieves Biosphere Reserve, Grazalema Natural Park, Los Alcornocales, Sierra Real Bermeja, all excellent locations for walking and bird watching. The European Commission has designated La Sierra de las Nieves Biosphere Reserve to be a destination of distinction and excellence (fantastic location for walking in nature).
