Reviewed on 25 Mar 2013 by Michelle WhiteThe mountain walks are amazing with the views of the Griffin Vultures being a huge highlight. Clive, who runs the tourist office for Grazalema was also a genuine highlight. He took real interest in our stay there and was brilliant at directing me to the veggie friendly restaurants.

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWherever possible we use organic fruit and vegetables grown locally. We buy food at local markets which only stock locally grown produce in season, 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 hikes. 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, which is necessary for the growth of a healthy local economy.
During our hikes 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.
PeopleOur community and the village are very important to us. The local residents are very supportive of us and our guests and are so very welcoming. Our guests always tell us how pleased they were that we encourage them to use the local bars and restaurants on their rest day and that we are able to tell them about the rich history of the local residents. We promise to help support our community as much as possible.
