Holidays to Inland Andalucia: Overview

Inland Andalucia is a stunning and varied region with a range of attractions to include on a tailor made holiday, from the celebrated Moorish legacy of Granada, Seville and Cordoba to the tiny unspoiled villages and whitewashed towns of the interior - the famous pueblos blancos - and the rugged beauty of the Sierra Nevada. The beaches aren't bad either.

Luxury Holidays to Inland Andalucia: The Detail

Andalucia's beautiful landscapes include more than 500 miles of coastline, much of it still unspoilt, the renowned wetlands of the Doñana National Park, and the only desert on the European continent.

Relax among the ancient olive groves and blossoming almond orchards of the rural heartland, where undulating hills and tiny terraced farms make up the panorama, or explore the many historic towns such as Ubeda and Ronda, as well as the famous attractions of Seville, Cordoba and Granada.

The winelands of Jerez and delicious local cuisine complete the picture of what must be the most enticing region of the Iberian Peninsula for a luxury holiday.
