Andalucia’s Eastern Coast, Granada & Almeria

8 Days from £599 | September, November, February, March, April, May, June 599

Granada was the last city to be re-conquered by the Catholic Kings in 1492 and Spain’s Moorish legacy is nowhere more evident than in Granada and its province. On this holiday, not only will you visit the Alhambra complex in Granada, but also the city of Almeria. Your base is the coastal city of Almunecar. This is a city whose Phoenician, Roman and Moorish past is still much in evidence. The wonderful sub-tropical climate will help you enjoy the city’s rich artistic and cultural heritage as well as the pretty historic centre. In and around Almunecar the sierras plunge spectacularly into the sea and you will find no less than 25 beaches and coves within the boundary of the municipality.

  • 7 nights hb in Almunecar, with one entrance free of charge to the hotel’s spa centre
  • Visit to Granada and the Alhambra
  • Tour along the Costa Tropical to Almeria

Day One: Flight to Malaga and transfer to your hotel (55 miles) in Almunecar on the beach east of the city for seven nights half board accommodation.

Days Two to Seven: During your stay there are two included full day excursions. The first is to the wonderful city of Granada just 45 miles away. There is surely no more spectacular setting than Granada, whose extraordinary Alhambra complex is dominated by the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada. A local guide will ensure you make the most of your visit of the Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens. (Please note that, due to restrictions on group visits, the Nasrid Palaces part of the complex may not be included in the visit.)  As well as visiting the complex with its richly decorated palaces and luxuriant gardens, you will also have plenty of time to see some of the city’s other attractions such as the cathedral and the old Moorish quarter of Albaicin, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the Alhambra and the Generalife.

The second excursion is a trip along the east coast to see the ancient city of Almeria (80 miles away by motorway). Almeria also has Phoenician and Roman origins and one of the greatest citadels ever built by the Moors as well as an unusual fortified cathedral constructed as defence against pirate attacks. The whitewashed walls of the old town have the unmistakable Al-Andalus atmosphere.

The rest of your time is free to enjoy Almunecar. You can visit the Arab fortress built on top of a Roman castle or stroll through the delightful botanical gardens of Majuelo Park where there is a huge collection of tropical and subtropical plants, bushes and trees as well as the remains of the Roman fish-salting pits. Other attractions include the exotic bird park and the network of defensive towers built by the Moors and later strengthened in the 18th century as defence against British raids. Or just stroll through the busy commercial district in the old centre where you can admire the city’s monuments – look out for the plaque dedicated to Laurie Lee who spent time here during and after the Civil War. There will also be the chance to join an optional excursion to Nerja with its magnificent Balcon de Europa and its nearby famous caves – an enormous cavern reminiscent of an underground cathedral featuring stalactites, stalagmites and wonderful rock formations and the white-painted, hill-top village of Frigiliana.

Day Eight: Free time until your transfer to the airport and your return flight.

We enjoyed this holiday very much indeed. Our hotel room was large and airy with plenty of storage and an excellent bathroom. The standard of cleanliness throughout, including the pool was very high. The excursions were first rate and the resort itself, greatly enhanced by the talents of our tour director Manuel. His tremendous local knowledge, friendly manner and excellent command of English meant that we learned so much about this lovely part of Spain. All in all, a brilliant holiday and great value for money. Hope to join another tour soon!

We have just returned from a holiday with Preferred Travel Services to Andalucia’s Eastern Coast and it was terrific! The guide was super both guiding and allowing time to explore. The hotel was great and the trips. This was our second trip with Preferred Travel and we would unhesitatingly recommend them.

Mrs B, Edinburgh

This holiday was beyond all my expectations. All the excursions were worthwhile. The Tour Guide’s impeccable language and exceptional narrative skills brought the rich historical legacy of Andalucia vividly to life.

Mrs H, Bristol

An enjoyable holiday. From being met, transported and looked after it was a great experience. I would also like to pay great appreciation to the tour guide who was excellent and added greatly to the holiday. His experience, his fluency, and indeed his lovely sense of humour contributed so much to our week and I feel he is a great addition to Preferred Travel Services. The coach driver was also very efficient, courteous and helpful. They are great ambassadors and I will be perusing the Preferred Travel Services brochure when I next feel the need of a holiday.

My Sister and I recently enjoyed a holiday with Preferred Travel. The holiday was a complete success thanks to the organisation and the company of Manuel the tour guide. He was a lovely friendly local man, who was excellent with all the guests. Thank you.

Mrs B. A., Devon

Spent a really wonderful week at the Hotel Bahia Tropical in Almunecar and would like to thank Preferred Travel Services for providing such a memorable destination. The Hotel Bahia Tropical commands a lovely position on the bay and provides excellent facilities with comfortable, well appointed rooms, spotlessly clean and excellent varied food. An excellent find. Our guide Manuel played his part in ensuring the success of the holiday. His extremely pleasant, friendly character and in depth knowledge of the area certainly enhances the enjoyment of the holiday. I would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday to others.
