    Stayed at La Acacia, near Martos during Andalucia bike race. Nice place, quiet location. Owner doesn’t speak much english, but was a nice guy. The place itself is amazing. We had it for a steal, but perhaps because it was out of season.

    Can’t help with recommendations, but you want to be searching for ”casa rural”. Wikiloc has loads of routes, although as with all places local knowledge would be better.

    (Should also point out that just north and west of Madrid has a lot of decent riding, and is also sunny…)

    Edit: daily meals – a casa rural often has breakfast included, you’d probably want about 15-20€/day/person for dinner and lunch, including a couple of drinks.

    Anybody care to share a budgetary cost for B&B accommodation and daily meals in the Andalucian hinterland? I fancy a ride in some sunshine. 😆

    English run B&B’s start from 30 euros a night for a couple locally in Almeria, our local bar offers all meals (good quality Spanish cuisine) up to and including full board i.e. breakfast, packed lunch and 3 course evening meal with wine for 20 euros. N.B. this is 50km inland,tourist free with Spanish prices.

    Just Go.
    It’s ace.
    If you head for Seville it’s gets more pricey, but hey…
    It’s ace.

    Fabby thanks. Looks like up to €40 per day on an “expensive” day and half that on a cheap day if I was camping. I know things will be more expensive on the coast.

    The magic words are “menu del dia”.

    Does that include accommodation? If it’s only food you’re not going to save that much camping, as chakaping says: “menu del día”.

    I can’t really help, I took my van with my Roadie in and slept in the van (mighty hot on occasion) only using Hotels (80€ a night back in 2009) when I needed a shower and my clothes needed cleaning… 😆 I managed to ride with Andalucia CajaSur on training rides, I was out the back door but at least I gave it my all.. Some of the 18yr old feeder teams are mighty strong, and way used to the heat… Unlike me 😆

    I was thinking of flying out and doing some on/off road touring.

    The GR7 has always looked a good trip to me. On;y done little bits. But it’s scenic with plenty of villages/towns along the way.

    Fly to Madrid, train to Plasencia, then ride down “La Via de Plata” to Granada via Badajoz, Seville and Cordoba? Then train back to Madrid for the flight home. (Biased: my wife’s from Plasencia, and I live in Madrid…)
