Four large lakes dominate much of the landscape and provide hazards.

Enjoy a half day excursion to the picturesque village of Ojen accompanied by your culinary guide to visit the Olive Oil Museum and Wine museum where you will have a tasting session with tapas. Ojen, is a 20 minute drive from Marbella climbing to 650ft in the sierras Blanca. Enroute you will stop to enjoy the traditional ''Churros and Chocolate''.

The gastronomy of the village is based on local produce including goat cheeses and milk products. Of special importance are the soups, rice and noodle dishes, fish and the delicious almond-flavoured gazpacho. Among the favoured game dishes are rabbit in garlic and partridge.

Day 4

Today visit majestic Ronda, famous worldwide for its dramatic escarpments and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge that carries the Rio Guadalevín through its center. Ronda is a spectacular one hour drive from the coast. Your first of many photo opportunities will be the 18th century Puente Nuevo (new bridge) which straddles the 328ft chasm below, for its unparalleled views over the Serranía de Ronda mountains. Ronda is also famous as the birthplace of modern bullfighting.

Our day will include a two hour vineyard tour with a tasting and tapas. You will enjoy lunch in one of Rhonda's charming restaurants serving local cuisine and wine. After lunch we will walk La Ciudad, old Ronda, exploring cobbled streets hemmed by handsome town mansions, some still occupied by Ronda's titled families. The Palacio Mondragon, found on the furthest end, still has working vestiges of the exquisite miniature water gardens dating from its time as a Moorish palace during Ronda's brief reign as a minor Caliphate under Cordoba in the 12th century.
