Andalucia & the South Coast

Call 01242 547 821 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Andalucia is one of the most fascinating regions, blessed by a dry and sunny climate and cradled by miles of sandy beaches, where our villas and hotels are the perfect base for a luxury holiday in Spain - and from which to explore the countless restaurants, nightclubs and golf courses. Inland, Andalucia quickly reverts to its traditional culture, with whitewashed villages clustered around castles and palaces in a timeless agrarian landscape, where our selection of restored farmhouses rich with colour-washed walls and exposed beams are totally appropriate homes in communities that frequently flare into fiestas that last all night.
