Hi all,
Im after some advice on places to stay and places to see in and around tarifa for next June. I've not been to this area before and would welcome any input on self catering accommodation people may have/know about that we can rent for 2 weeks and palces to visit (wildlife or food market wise which just about covers the remit of everything we like to do!!).
We are also looking to do some snorkelling so any great rocky coves in the area would be a great bonus. Bird watching should bd satisfied through a couple of days in Coto Donana while we are in this rough area.
Cheers
Andy

Hi Andy

I can highly recommend Stephen Daly of Andalucian Guides
http://www.wildsideholidays.com/search-holidays-by-region-and-category/spain-guided-and-self-led-holidays/andalucia/andalucian-guides.html

He has a self catering cottage for rent and is one of the most knowledgeable guides in the area but when you rent his cottage its not obligatory to be taken out by him. He does give a discount for birding/nature days out though for those renting his place...

Will you get time to call up to Grazalema as well? it would be great to meet in person one of our forum insect specialists!

Either way, June is absolutely stunning in this part of Andalucia and i am sure you will have a great time....

Clive

Hi Andy,

I too would recommend Stephen Daly.   I've tried to email you with details of my small place in the area, but it refuses to send ... I'll keeping trying until I get through!

Hi Paddy,

Sorry about that, I haven't got around to fixing some of the links that direct to the old Wildside system... here is Stephens listing
