Just over a week ago we finally shut the hotel for this season, and since then Joe and I have been doing a lot of walking, updating and preparing our new walking guide for the area. In this guide we wanted to include a larger range of walks; from leisurely strolls to harder high mountain walks. We also want to increase the number of self guided walks which can be done with out using a car, either starting directly from the hotel or using public transport.
The Hotel and Sueve Mountain range from Pico Moro
The ascent of Pico Moro is a circular walk starting and finishing at the hotel and takes about five to six hours. Throughout the walk there are spectacular views of the mountains and countryside which surround the hotel. Where as most of the mountains in the area are limestone, Pico Moro differs with a predominately silicate based subsoil. As a consequence the flora on the slopes is quite different and in parts there are even small forests of Mimosa trees.
