Jenny (my wife) saw the pictured article in, of all places, the Easyjet magazine. She has decided that this is going to be next year's Camino which is absolutely fine with me :)
Having done some preliminary research, there seem to be a few start points - the article suggest Malaga (presumably as Easyjet fly there), CSJ describes it as starting in Granada, and most reports on here seem to start in Almeria.
Interested to know what the consensus of opinion is on best/nicest etc place to start
Thanks

I began from Granada on 13 April. but it depends of the number of days that you have. If you have 2-2,5 months , you may begin from Almería. If you have less time you may begin from Granada or Málaga. I suggest April-May like the best months to walk. ¡Buen Camino!. Miguel

Thanks.
We walked the CF in 2 week blocks over 3 years due to Jenny’s holiday constraints and this would probably have to be similar. I think the plan would be to walk the Mozarabe then return to the VdlP. We usually go early May.
