Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Wherever possible we use organic fruit and vegetables grown in the village of Torrox Pueblo. We buy food from the local markets and supermarkets anfd take advantage of the best fruit that is in season here in Spain thus supporting the local agricultural community. Evening meals are taken locally in typical Spanish restaurants serving regional dishes.

We have the greatest respect for the local people and their customs and are anxious to share our knowledge of Andalucia with our guests. We take our clients to local fairs, processions and celebrations when they coincide with a vacation and we explain the background. We also provide people with a history of Torrox and the surrounding villages during our walks. We encourage our guests to speak to the local people in the village, if only to say hello.

We work in partnership with local businesses and we generate new business and work in the local economy. Guests have an opportunity to visit the local olive oil co-operative and purchase locally produced olive oil, local wine and other goods. We encourage clients to buy home-made products such as dried figs, raisins, honey, almonds and wine from housewives in the village.

Our guests stay in local village houses which have been restored by local workmen and we have been careful to ensure that these houses have retained their unique Moorish character whilst providing all necessary comforts. This helps the Pueblo retain its immense charm and encourages sustainable tourism, necessary for the growth of a healthy local economy.
We also accomodate guests in a family run hotel in the village.

During our walks our guests are encouraged to behave in an environmentally responsible manner. We stay on well marked paths and we always take our litter home with us. We do not encourage the picking of wild flowers and plants.
