About this holiday
Granada is a city brimming with steep, narrow
streets and beautiful nooks and crannies. Our
day begins with a guided tour of the magnificent
Alhambra Palace with its commanding views
over the whole city and one of the most famous
examples of Moorish architecture. Stopping for a
tapas lunch at one of the historic centres taverns,
we then have the afternoon free to explore more
of this fascinating city.
To get the full flavour of Spain, we dedicate a
day to Spanish culture. Starting with gastronomy
the chef at the hotel will teach us the secrets
of making some of the country’s best-known
dishes and using tasty local ingredients also
demonstrates the art of creating amazing tapas.
These delightful small dishes of various titbits can
be served either hot or cold. After enjoying the
fruits of our labour, with a glass or two of sangria,
we take a guided walk to the honey museum,
a local speciality, before our Spanish theme
continues with music and food to match. Olé!
White Villages of Las Alpujarras
The unspoilt region of Las Alpujarras is peppered
with the stunning white villages full of history and
tradition that rural Spain is known for.
Discover the charms of Pampaneira, Capileira and
Bubión before heading to Trevelez, the highest
village in Spain. Here we have a chance to sample
some of the villages’ mouth watering cured ham.

the gypsies with traditional rhythmic music.

in Andalucía, The town is famous for its cave
houses, with almost half of its inhabitants living
underground. It’s then on to a local vineyard for a
