Warm and sunny days with cool nights and the odd rainy periods. Shorts and long sleeve shirts for riding, but make sure to bring cold/ wet weather gear. Please remember it is still wintertime and the nights can get very cold (average low 10C), so pack accordingly – a woolly hat is a good edition. FYI, coldest nights are between middle Dec to around the end of Jan.

Plenty of hot water and each room has independent heating. Please note, Spanish properties are designed for the warmth not the cold and consequently they do not have a thermostat heating system.

Our villa is located in Alhaurin el Grande approx 15mins drive from 5 different riding locations containing about 35 tracks. A 25min drive from Malaga airport means full-days riding on arrival and departure days so for those on a long weekend break, try to book flights early in and late back to maximise riding.
