Meals included: B,D

Day 3 CHRISTMAS EVE - Ronda

​The cliff-top town of Ronda is our destination on Christmas Eve. 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 gorge 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, we'll take in the fabulous views from here and look down to the waters of the River Guadalevin below.

Day 4 CHRISTMAS DAY - Frigiliana & Nerja

​It's Christmas Day and the beautiful hilltop village of Frigiliana, situated in the foothills of the Almijara Mountains, 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 and perhaps shop for local handicrafts such as ceramics and lace. Next we'll head to 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.​ Back at the hotel we'll get together for a festive Christmas Day dinner with wine.

Meals included: B,D
