Photos from Alpandeire & Ronda in Andalusia, Spain

Am just back from a very chilled out trip to Alpandeire, a small and very pretty Andalusian village high up in the hills above Ronda in Spain. With a population of less than 200 at this time of year, the village was hardly buzzing, but that was exactly what I was looking for, and I was extremely lucky with the weather which was both sunny and warm every single day I was there. Looking out of my window back here in Hebden Bridge today, I seem to have brought a little of the weather back with me.

And muchos gracias to Soph, Evie, and Alonso for being such wonderful hosts while I was there. Disappointed I didn’t get a chance to get up to see the finca and help out with the yurts, but I might get back over to Alpandeire another time soon to check it out.

So here’s some (typically Hipstamatic enhanced) snaps of my time in Alpandeire, Ronda, and also a few of the neighbouring village of Júzcar, whose buildings were painted blue last year to celebrate the premiere of The Smurfs movie!
