Accommodation and gastronomy in the Genal Valley
The Genal Valley is a genuinely rural destination for enjoying unspoilt countryside and a relaxed traditional village life. Most villages have at least one hotel, many of which are large converted houses or mills. Ibernature Andalusia chooses the best local accommodation, depending upon the type of holiday and departure point for its activities.
As regards gastronomy, while not considered a “main” dish, chestnuts are either accompaniment in sauces with meats and stews, or a sweet in their own right.
Oven cooked lamb and pork are typical, as well as venison and wild boar from the local hunting reserves.
The high rainfall and shade from the diverse plant and tree species favour the growing of mushrooms, particularly in autumn and winter, and can therefore be found on the menu in certain bars and restaurants.
