Los Corrales,Villa Cabreros and beyond,Simply discover the Real Spain. Part 1

. One of the most lesser know tourist destinations in Europe.An off the beaten track town ,in the south east corner of the province of Sevilla,close to the border of the province of Malaga . Los Corrales has something to offer,for even the most discerning tourist. No beautiful beaches here,they are about an hour down the road on the Costa del Sol. The vibrant street life of Los Corrales,a typical Spanish town,with bars, restaurants and shops just waiting to greet you.A town where everyone will bid you," BuenosDias"as you wonder through the streets. Set in the beautiful Foothills of the Serreana de Ronda mountain range of Andalucia in Spain,surrounded by olive groves and cornfields,Where Spain is Spain and where rural traditions are not lost to changing times. Los Corrales sits in the middle of stunning countryside, within easy reach of some of Spain’s hidden treasures.An hour will take you to Sevilla,or Malaga and a little longer will take you to Cordoba and Granada .But cities are cities and is it not time you took a closer look at the towns of Osuna (Sevilla) and Antequera (Malaga) ? Two historical towns,steeped in a wealth of history and culture just waiting to be discovered. With much renovation carried out over the past number of years,the history of these towns has been given a new lease of life.

Set about exploring the depths of Sierra Sur in Sevilla province. There are many different drive routes to make the most of your time in the area. Try leaving Los Corrales and drive around white villages of Sierra Sur, taking in Algamatis,Coripe, Villanueva de San Juan,to name but a few. Discover a new world, with beautiful countryside, tranquillity and a relaxed pace of life .. Alternatively,a 30 minute drive into the province of Malaga and into one of Andelucia´s most prominent Lake Districts. Set amidst the mountains,the Embalsas de Guadalteba-Guadalhorce provide an area of outstanding natural beauty. A haven for outward bound activities,from windsurfing to paragliding,from walking to mountain climbing and much more. And while you are taking in the beauty and awe of this area ,don't forget to visit the gorge at El Chorro. Two nature reserves are within 15 minutes of the Villa Cabreros.The Laguna del Gosgue and the Laguna de Fuente de Piedra.
Tired yet? The day is not over, take a walk into the town and relax , have a drink, have a tapas, enjoy the Spanish way of life. Relax to the sounds of evening life drifting through the streets. Tomorrows another day.
