The Hondon Valley is a special place to the people who live and holiday here. It's not hard to see why with its miles and miles of fertile land growing juicy table grapes, local wine, almonds and salty olives, all in abundance. The locals are real country folk who rely on the land for work and the visitors love to drive or walk through this pretty valley.
Of course being a valley means being surrounded by mountain views and I love that. They change colour and shape during the day and even the seasons. Add the guaranteed 310+ days of glorious Spanish sunshine and the combination is a winner!
Hondon is one of those 'in-the-know' secrets that brings a small influx of like-minded people to the area. These are people that relish the simple Al-fresco lifestyle, the small typical Spanish villages, the slow pace of life (eh, no Sunday opening here, thanks) and the friendly community minded culture. It seems so safe and friendly compared to the big bad city I used to live in!
