Sigma Leisure: Holiday walks in the Alpujarra

Holiday walks in the Alpujarra

Local resident and walks leader Jeremy Rabjohns takes his readers to the very heart of Andalucia: the Alpujarra - the wild and beautiful part of southern Spain that has achieved prominence in Chris Stewart's Driving over Lemons. The region is perfectly positioned for an entire holiday or simply for a short break from busy tourist areas. To the north there is the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Nevada, sprinkled with snow for much of the year, and the Moorish city of Granada with its magnificent Alhambra. Just an hour or so to the south are the popular resorts of the Costa del Sol and the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean. There are 27 walks in this book. Three explore the city of Granada: while the others - from 5km to 25km - are based on typical Alpujarran villages, each with an interesting history and unique character. In addition to the walks, there is information on travel, accommodation and cultural background - invaluable resources for aU visitors. An internet update service, free to all readers, ensures ongoing accuracy of information.

 

Jeremy has lived in the Alpujarra since 1995 and is a freelance guide and holiday organiser working throughout the area. The pastel and pen-work illustrations are by Jeremy's wife, Jeni, a trained and qualified painter and printmaker who works in the Alpujarra and draws inspiration from the area.
