Beautiful landscapes and fascinating history
With its dry and sunny climate and miles of sandy beaches, Andalucia has a lot to offer. Yet your Andalucian holiday can provide so much more than upmarket boutiques, exclusive golf courses, deluxe villas and atmospheric restaurants.
For a taste of Andalucia’s more traditional culture you should head inland. Your tour of Andalucia can include visits to the whitewashed villages that cluster around castles and palaces. You can stay in this unspoilt agrarian landscape in immaculately restored farmhouses with rich colour-washed walls and exposed beams. And these rural communities are far from sedate. In this dry climate it just takes a spark to ignite an all-night fiesta!
Holidays in Andalucia are also about exploring its well-preserved Moorish architecture. The golden stones and graceful curves of the Alhambra in Granada, the Mezquita in Cordoba and the Alcazar in Seville have enthralled generations. And they look as fresh today as ever.
A true pleasure of any Andalucian tour is to simply lose yourself in the narrow streets filled with tapas bars. This, after all, was the region where tapas was invented. But, your holiday in Andalucia would not be complete without a round on the greens, a saunter through the boutiques or some time spent partying or relaxing in the lively and stylish atmosphere of coastal resorts like Marbella and Puerto Banus.
