MALAGA

Malaga has long been known as the gateway to the Costa del Sol for beach resort lovers, but the city of Malaga itself is far removed from the mass tourist trail. With an up and coming marina offering a selection of international and local cuisine, wine bars and shops, an historic centre teasing you to explore its’ museums (Picasso Museum and Carmen Thyssen being highlights), Gibralfaro castle, cobbled back streets, Roman ruins and tapas bars aplenty, it’s not hard to see why it’s growing so much in popularity. If you stay a few days, there are also some great sandy beaches on the doorstep to enjoy or exceptional wine tasting tours with door to door pick up and drop off. For those starting a self drive itinerary, Malaga provides a perfect start or end point (or both!), located just 10-15 minutes drive from the airport.

Our personal recommendation is to start with a night or two to explore the city and do some sightseeing, and end here for another night or two to relax and unwind at the beach if you have the time to do both.

RONDA

Ronda is a fairly small town, but has a lot to offer. Home to the oldest bull ring (“plaza de toros”), completed in 1784 which remains one of the main attractions right in the city centre. Bull fighting is a contentious issue around the World but regardless of your opinion on it, the ring itself is incredibly impressive and worth a visit. Probably the most photographed part of Ronda is the new bridge (“puente nuevo”) which towers above the El Tajo gorge, offering spectacular views across the Andalucian mountains. The old town beckons with its’ charming cobbled streets, convents, churches and historic mansions and it’s easy to while away your afternoon in the sun sipping on a local wine and watching the world go by. For those looking for more adventure, the mountains surrounding Ronda provide some excellent walking trails, and for the wine lovers we also arrange beautiful wine tasting tours. See our Wine Tasting page for details. 

We offer a choice of a central boutique hotel or a rural luxury stay just outside of Ronda for those who have a hire car and want the best of both worlds.

CORDOBA

Fairly small in size, but big in what it has to offer, Cordoba is a must in an Andalucia road trip. The Mezquita (Great Mosque) is the star attraction and it’s hard to do it justice on paper. The mosque was built when Cordoba became the capital of Moorish “Al-Andalus” and after several centuries of improvements and extensions, it became the largest mosque in Islam. When the Christians re-conquered Cordoba and took it over, they left the mosque as it was due to its’ outstanding beauty and built a cathedral around it. The result is a breathtaking building full of beautiful gardens, patios, and architecture. This isn’t your usual cathedral and has to be seen to be appreciated. Other sights include the fort, Jewish quarter and Roman bridge. It’s a city easy to explore on foot and also offers some great restaurants for dining out.

We recommend staying here for 2 nights to fully appreciate what the city offers.

SEVILLE

The most striking thing about Seville is its’ beauty. It’s a city filled with joyous people, flowered romantic balconies, beautiful architecture and little winding cobbled streets. The main tourist sights include the famous Cathedral surrounding La Giralda minaret where you can walk up the steps to the top and be enchanted by the breathtaking views across the city, Alcazar Palace and of course, the bull ring. It’s a city of romance and parts almost feel like a smaller town than a capital city (it’s the administrative capital of Andalucia). Keep your camera out even whilst walking the streets; there is beauty everywhere!

We can assist with booking tickets in advance for Alcazar Palace, the cathedral and Flamenco shows.

We recommend at least 2 nights in Seville, or 3 nights if you want a more leisurely stay.

GRANADA

The inner walled historic centre of Granada is a highlight of the city with it’s typically Spanish cobbled streets, abundance of restaurants and market stalls offering a variety of Andalucian ceramics, leather, clothing, souvenirs and woodwork. Shoppers could ramble through the old town for hours. But of course, the main attraction here is the Alhambra Palace. It’s quite a walk up to the palace from town and as it’s located at the foot of the mountains, it is an uphill climb but absolutely worth the effort (for those who cannot walk the distance there is a but service from the city or taxi services). Alhambra Palace isn’t just one palace as the name suggests, it’s a series of buildings, palaces and gardens built in the 14th century with the summer palace called “Generalife” at the heart. Views are spectacular, as is the architecture and history and guided tours are recommended to really make the most of the experience. Tickets are notoriously difficult to obtain so visitors turning up on a whim will be disappointed – even in low season - so we are happy to offer advice or assist with obtaining them.
