ITINERARY
Day 1: Arrival to Sevilla

The cycle begins in Sevilla, a vibrant, charismatic city drenched for most of the year in delicious sunshine. Its culture, history and folklore make this an exceptional international tourist destination.

Day 2: Sevilla to Carmona

Not far from Sevilla, you will reach another jewel of Andalucia, the hilltop town of Carmona: it´s city walls hold churches, palaces and an imposing arab fortress. The Alcazar, now converted into the Parador Hotel is where you will spend your second night. Today you cycle along a network of cycle tracks beside the river Guadaira and through fields of sunflowers and cereals.

Day 3: Carmona to Montellano

Today's route is a little longer and takes you to the small historic town of Montellano along cycle tracks and winding country roads. You will pass several small traditional towns along the way where you can stop for a refreshing beer and a chilled 'Jerez'! Tonight's 'hacienda' hotel is a real favourite amongst our customers and could be the perfect opportunity to take an extra night if you fancy having a rest day by the pool surrounded only by olive and almond groves and the sounds of nature.

Day 4: Montellano to Arcos de la Frontera

From here you will enjoy cycling amongst beautiful Mediterranean woodland along the river Guadalete to reach another legendary hilltop city: Arcos de la Frontera, considered one of the most photogenic towns in Spain. From Montellano you can see the mountains of Grazalema in the distance. Most of the cycle is along very quiet country roads and a "Via Verde" (pretty railway line now converted into a cycle lane). You will cycle past the typically andalucian town of Puerto Serrano: a good place to stop for lunch!

Reviews

Communication from the company...

...was excellent. No issues with luggage transfers. Sent gps, road maps and detailed map book which was very handy when Garmin had an issue especially when cycling through some towns. Bikes were sturdy touring bikes a bit heavier than our usual ride but very dependable. We did have an issue after particularly heavy rain one day when we literally got stuck in clay / mud. We have suggested to AFTC team that maybe an alternative route is offered even if it’s a little longer to stop others having the same issue. Some road cycling on busy roads but usually only for very short periods. The scenery is stunning and all the Paradores and hotels we stayed in were beautiful and very comfortable bar the Jerez hotel. Although quirky, It didn’t quite hit the mark and major building work looks and sounds like it will be ongoing for a while. Overall a brilliant holiday, well organised with beautiful hotels and scenery. Would definitely consider using AFTC again. Hilary Shaw.

Another wonderful cycling...

...organised by Away from the Crowds. The Seville to Cadiz trip is expertly organised. As usual, the organisation and detail was exceptional. All we had to do was pedal and enjoy the combination of fantastic scenery and the World-renowned cites of Seville, Jerez and Cadiz. The combination of the cities and two ancient historic towns (Carmona and Acros de la Frontera) made this a memorable trip. Thank you again guys, your should be proud of your service as its world-class. Ged Bell.


The organisation is fautless...
...Each hotel was fully expecting us on arrival and had our rooms ready and somewhere to safely store the bikes. There were no problems with transporting our luggage either. Every morning we left it in the hotel reception and it was there waiting for us on arrival at the next hotel. We also had one small problem where we had left a few items at a previous hotel. I called the emergency number and the lady from awayfromthecrowds helpfully advised me which hotel I should get my things shipped to and contacted them on my behalf. The bikes were simple but solid touring bikes with front suspension and shimano groupsets which I always find dependable. They were well serviced and supplied by a small and friendly bike establishment in Seville by a man named Ali. Our only issue was we had requested to male geometry bike and even double checked to confirm - however my partner still received a ladies bike. A large waterproof pannier bag was supplied with each bike with all necessary tools.We were also supplied with excellent route maps and road books and .GPX files for our Garmin GPS - navigation was very easy with this combination. The bike routes themselves were nice enough with quite a bit of variation. Be aware quite a bit of the route is on roads shared with cars, but we found the Andalucian drivers generally gave us a very wide berth which was great. The run in to Jerez and Cadiz was on quite busy roads and through built up areas but we managed without any problem. Parts of the route were also on quiet unpaved tracks including a via verde on one of General Francos unfinished railway routes which was lovely. It was very hot for October - above 30 degrees every day so we set off early in the mornings to beat the worst of the heat. We only felt really hot on the climbs - of which there weren't many big ones. What really shone out were the destinations and the hotels which really were first class. We loved the luxury and character of the Paradors and the hacienda at Montellano. It was great to be able to swim in the pools in the hot afternoons post biking. The weak link was probably Palacio Garvey in Jerez - it wasn't terrible by any means but the room was a bit dark and dingy and the breakfast and facilities didn't match the others. All the destinations were lovely places. Carmona was probably my favourite of them all, a lovely small Pueblo Blanco full of character after the hustle and bustle of Seville, and the Parador was truly amazing. We sometimes found it tricky to find places for lunch in some of the small towns on route. Things were very quiet during the heat of the day - it was useful to pack some food in the panniers just in case. Some basic Spanish also went a long way. I would gladly recommend this tour! :) Guy Thompson.
