Overview

Enchanting Andalucía, blessed with plentiful sunshine, beautiful landscapes and a flamboyant zest for life, has for centuries seduced travellers and artists attempting to capture its essence. Unspoilt stretches of coast, evergreen woodlands and fertile plains meet staggering mountain ranges before fading into the brilliant blue of the Mediterranean Sea. Numerous ambitious civilisations have left a fascinating heritage: Roman remains, Moorish palaces and Gothic cathedrals are just some of the gems that pepper the sun-baked region.

We discover refreshed Málaga, which boasts a flourishing arts scene and food culture to match its complex history. Perhaps the jewel of the ‘coast of light’ is ancient Cádiz, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Europe with a rich maritime history. Of course, an Andalusian adventure would not be complete without a trip to its capital, Seville, the epitome of southern Spain. For a fitting finale we head to Portugal’s stunning Algarve region, where we stay in coastal Tavira, which delights with its whitewashed houses and colourful azulejo tiles.

In addition to guided city tours, we enjoy wonderful walks with specialist guides through extraordinary nature parks in Andalucía and along one of the most beautiful stretches of the Algarve coast.
