Let me preface this by saying my husband and I like to be on the move when we travel (although we'll admit trying to cover ALL of Ireland by car in 4.5 days was certainly crazy)....I'm kind of stuck on the southern Andalucia portion of our itinerary.
Here's the scoop:
day 1: arrive by night train into Granada - tour La Alhambra (which I probably spelled wrong), rest, sleep in Granada
day 2: pick up rental car, drive through Las Alpujarras before continuing on to Nerja where we're spending the night
day 3: drive to Ronda, enjoying views & towns along the way (note: we're not interested in the Costa del Sol resort towns)
day 4: explore and enjoy Ronda, stay a second night
day 5: drive to Arcos via Gibraltar (my husband's dad is from Britain, so there's interest in Gibraltar), stay in Arcos
day 6: explore white villages, stay in Arcos
day 7: continue on to Sevilla (dropping car off)
Here's my dilemma, and I recognize it's petty so please don't lambast me for it. The place that we *really* wanted to stay at in Arcos de la Frontera was El Convento and they're booked. Should we add on a night in ronda (doing the white towns during that extra day) and instead of staying in Arcos, stay in Vejer de la Frontera (or open to suggestions) after visiting Gibraltar?
I know this was a long post, but wanted to make sure the background was given. And remember, we are very active - we like to be on the move.
Thanks for the help and feedback!!
