Travel challenge: Spring in Andalucia
Saturday 26 February 2011
Every week we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a week in Andalucia in early April. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together.
£398: Casa Alaju, near Ronda. Includes one week's rental of the three-bedroom Casa Alaju near the white village of El Gastor and Ronda, starting 8 April. Travel to Spain and car hire are not included.
"This lovely property boasts superb views and a fantastic location – on its own private peninsula on the shores of the Embalse de Zahara inland lake. It has its own private pool, barbecue and extensive grounds of almost 10 acres. In addition, the small party rate at this property means that two people can enjoy the facilities of a larger house at a great value price," says Stephen Ellison of Vintage Travel (01954 261431; vintagetravel.co.uk).
£675: Spain's Secret Sierra self-guided walking holiday. Includes seven nights' B&B accommodation starting 9 April, five dinners, two picnics, walking notes and luggage transfers. Travel to Spain is not included.
"Andalucia's Sierra Aracena is a land of glorious woodland, wildflowers and far-reaching views and is a delight to discover on foot. While leisurely meandering through the valleys, guests meet workers preparing for the cork harvest and farmers tending the black pigs, and stay in sleepy, authentic villages, each one of which has its own architectural treasure, en route, while their luggage is transported on ahead," says Alison Hall at Inntravel (01653 617000; inntravel.co.uk).
£440: Hotel Duque de Najera, Rota. Includes flights from Stansted on 10 April and a week's accommodation with breakfast in an ocean-view room at the four-star hotel.
"This is a beautiful hotel on the beach in a typically Andalucian town, within easy reach of Jerez, Cadiz and the pueblo blanco," says Tracey Stowe at Stowaway Travel (0845 230 1212; stowawaytravel.co.uk).
