Renting a flat in Barcelona

Barcelona is a great place to live, and a fantastic place to visit for a short city-break holiday. Everyone knows that of course, which is why the apartment rental market has exploded since I first moved here in 2002. Now there is no shortage of offer – though sometimes the quality of the accommodation may be lacking. Here’s my recommendation if you’re looking to rent an apartment in the Raval area of Barcelona. The Raval district is unrelentingly “real”, and is breath of not-quite-so fresh air amidst the heavily-touristed (can I say that?! spell check sure doesn’t like it…) Barrio Gotico and Las Ramblas. Full of bars, restaurants, and night-life, super-close to all the tourist spots whilst being very much authentic, it’s a lively multicultural area of BCN. Enjoy!

Guided walks in Andalucia

If you enjoy walking holidays or nature trails, I would like to suggest my uncle’s guided walking holidays in spain. He runs walking holidays and guided walks in the beautiful Lakes region of Ardales, Andalucia, in southern Spain.

This area is particularly good walking country, often compared to the English Lake District in Wordsworth’s time, before the hordes descended on it but with better weather! The bird life is excellent, including such specialties as eagles, osprey, blue rock thrush, hoopoe, pink flamingo. The history embedded in the landscape stretches from 30,000-year-old cave paintings to Mozarabic ruins.

His walks are graded according to difficulty and length, from gentle wanders on good, level paths to fairly strenuous 12-hour yomps in the mountains. Each has a different focus, e.g. flora, fauna, archaeological sites, birds etc. He’s qualified as a guide locally, and has lived there for seven years, developing a broad and intimate knowledge of the area.
