This is a week’s holiday combining culture, cities, mountains, coast, 2 wonderful Paradores and some excellent restaurants. The holiday can be extended by adding extra nights in Seville before the holiday, or at the Parador at Ronda or either of the Málaga Paradors or Nerja after the holiday where we can arrange the best possible rates.
After having to cancel groups in the Autumn of 2020 and February 2021 due to Covid19 we are very much hoping to be able to travel in September and October 2021 and are pleased to have booked accommodation at some of our favourite Paradors. Inevitably prices have risen this year but we have made every effort to keep them as low as possible.
On each holiday most dates are booked for Dinner, Bed & Breakfast with drinks included and on one night with a tapas supper, including drinks, as an alternative to dinner. Occasional nights are booked for B & B only as stated on the itineraries.
Extra nights can be booked before or after each holiday at Paradores or other hotels that we know and recommend. Various options are given at the end of the day to day itinerary below.
