The list below is by no means exhaustive ... there's so
much going on, it's difficult to get it all on these pages!
It has to be said that your holiday at La Cencerrita is,
above all else, a time for you to unwind and enjoy the tranquillity we
can offer you. Sitting on the terraces, soaking up the warmth of the sun, an
occasional dip in the pool, sipping a chilled Sangria, nibbling on some tapas whilst
sighing over the beauty of the sunset. Masses of sightseeing, aerobics and discos are not what this is
all about ..... However, we do appreciate that some of our guests need a
little something to while the time away ...
Spectacular views for you to paint and
photograph. If you should wish to paint/shoot something other than our
splendid views (heaven forbid!), as with all activities, we can arrange
transport to the place of your choice - you may wish to start and finish your
day in different locations. Easels are available - no charge, just a
damage deposit .. just in case!
In August 2007 Carol, Andy, Jordan (11) and Sam (9) went Quad
Trekking with Quadlandertreks, based near Álora - and had the most marvellous
time. Apart from the fabulous scenery and sheer enjoyment of it all, Carol and
Andy were very impressed by Susan's professionalism and high safety standards.
Perhaps you'd better take a look at the site!

The area of El Chorro is renowned for rock climbing and it
also has safe areas for beginners. Most famous of all is the El Camino del Rey -
The King's Pathway.
Local tuition is apparently available. There is also
Aventur El Chorro:

Cencerrita - we have a few books to aid identification - but bring yours as well
as there are still many mysterious treasures to be revealed. Take a look at some

We are pleased to say that there are nesting Spanish Imperial Eagles in the area
and many guests are treated to regular "fly-bys" of these splendid birds.
Chris and John spent a fair amount of their holiday here with binoculars
attached to their eyes and were pleased to be able to offer the following

The warmth of the Spanish sun and the

Particularly in the cooler months, walking
around Finca Cencerrita is beautiful. On the tracks, traffic is rare - you
are unlikely to meet anyone other than the occasional goat herder or
almond/olive picker. We have worked out some walks in the area to take you
from a short 15 minutes (although we know some guests took nearly two hours to
do that walk - they found there was simply too much to look at to hurry!) up to
a day's hike to the top of El Hacho. Some of the walks around Cencerrita can be
found outlined here:
Walks. We keep detailed,
diagrammatic maps to help you find your way - even GPS co-ordinates should you
view of the skies from the roof terrace gives you a near perfect viewing platform to gaze
heavenwards and see the unique heavens high above.
The expert astronomer will probably have their own equipment to bring
(and I look forward to using it!). However, for those of us who are more enthusiastic
than knowledgeable, we can provide star
charts for use during your stay - ordinary binoculars will do just fine -
there's plenty to see within their range! Before your visit, we suggest you have a look on the net for "Star Gazing" or
Astronomy. Here is one of my favourite links to get you started!
The area of Álora/Pizarra and the
mountains are an ideal location for mountain
biking: From up high at wonderful view points to the arroyos that link the
valley - some arroyos might not even be completely dry river beds! Please note that the tracks around here are
suitable for road bikes ...

There's a lot more information available on all the above

that isn't here ... just ASK!
