Itinerary

Day 1 UK - Malaga

Today, you will fly to Malaga and transfer to Mijas, a lovely town nestled in the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas Mountains. Our hotel is set between the beach and the mountains, just five-minute walk from the centre of town. After time to settle in, we'll get to know one another better over a welcome drink. Meals included: D

Day 2 Malaga & Mijas

After breakfast we'll set off for our included excursion that will introduce us to the highlights of Malaga, famed as the birthplace of artist Picasso. Malaga is enveloped by 3,000 years of history, making it one of the oldest cities in the world. Its highlights include the elaborate cathedral and Alcazaba, a palace-fortress which dates back to the Moorish period. After, we will explore the cobbled streets of Mijas which are lined with pretty whitewashed houses decorated with brightly coloured bougainvillea, lavender and jasmine flowers. The views here towards the coast are simply stunning, so remember to bring your camera!

Meals included: B,D

Day 3 Christmas Eve, Mijas

Spend today at leisure, or join our optional full-day excursion to Granada and the world-famous Alhambra Palace. Standing high on a hill overlooking the city, the palace was built by the Moors in the 13th and 14th centuries and has been added to over time to become a magnificent complex of pink stone courtyards, pools, fountains, grand halls and cool patios.

Meals included: B,D

Day 4 Christmas Day, Mijas

It's Christmas Day so enjoy some time to relax and take the opportunity to explore. Maybe you'll decide to have a leisurely day at the hotel, or perhaps you'll wander around Mijas with your fellow travellers. Back at the hotel we'll get together for a festive Christmas Day dinner with wine.

Meals included: B,D

Day 5 Boxing Day, Frigiliana & Nerja

We are off to the beautiful hilltop village of Frigiliana today, situated in the foothills of the Almijara Mountains, and is the first stop on our included excursion. Easily explored on foot, this picturesque village is a maze of cobbled streets and its historic centre has a distinctively Moorish appearance. We'll have time to explore its winding alleyways before heading onto Nerja, with its lovely sandy beaches and hidden coves. Once a sleepy fishing village, its old quarter remains virtually unchanged, with narrow winding streets lined with whitewashed houses and wrought-iron terraces overflowing with fragrant geraniums.

Meals included: B,D

Day 6 Ronda

Admire magnificent scenery as we drive to the lovely clifftop town of Ronda. Enjoying a spectacular location on a towering plateau, the town is divided by El Tajo, a precipitous gorge more than 600ft deep. On one side of the forge stands the old Moorish town of La Ciudad, with the more modern El Mercadillo part of town on the other. El Tajo is spanned by the 18th century Puente Nuevo Bridge, and we'll take in the fabulous views from here and look down to the waters of the River Guadalevin below.

Meals included: B,D

Day 7 Mijas

Explore at your own pace today, or join our optional full-day excursion to Gibraltar. If you wish, there will be time to ride the cable car to the top of 'The Rock' and see the famous Barbary apes that call this British colony home. It's the final day of our holiday, so we'll enjoy a farewell get-together over dinner this evening.

Meals included: B,D

 Prebookable Granada and The Alhambra Palace

Prebookable Granada and The Alhambra Palace

This is an opportunity to see what is generally accepted as the 8th Wonder of the World. Granada, the city is world famous for it´s “Alhambra Palace” and “Generalife Gardens”, the longest lasting Arab kingdom in Spain, 800 years of Arab occupation, and also the resting place of Isabel and Ferdinand. The Alhambra Palace is the best and most well preserved example of Islamic architecture in Spain. Many of the original palaces, squares and plazas, are still there for you to admire.

The “Generalife Gardens” still remain very much as they were, when used by the Arab kings, over 1000 years ago. We also visit Granada, where in your free time maybe you would like to stroll through the Arabian Market.
