Spain has some very charming white-washed villages. We visited several of them in the Andalusia region and, though they may look the same up on the hilltop or mountainside, each one is quite different from the next.
Some villages are popular tourist destinations in which case you'll find slightly higher prices for hotels, excellent dining, and a "new town" butted up against the "old town" where locals go to get away from tourists.
In most any village, you're guaranteed to find narrow streets impossible to drive a car through, excellent tapas, great wine or sherry, xenophobes as well as very kind, welcoming residents.
Much of the joy is traveling between each village and taking in the lush green countryside, craggy jaw-dropping mountain views, and the winding roads that lead you from one experience to the next.
