Exclusive Andalusia mini tour
Sample weekend break starting in Malaga
Upon arrival you will be picked up from Malaga Airport by your chauffeur and taken to Baena – one of Spain’s top olive oil production regions. Your private guide will take you on a walking tour of a local olive farm. The tour will also include an olive oil tasting....
You will walk around the groves, and learn from the farmers themselves about the rich heritage of the area, the diverse olive varieties and the cultivation methods that have given Baena products a prestigious protected designation of origin.
When the tour is over you’ll be transferred to your 4-star hotel in Zuheros. This tranquil village with a ruinous medieval castle is situated amidst the Subbética Natural Park. Here, far from the hustle and bustle of the big city, you can slow down, relax and immerse yourself in everyday Spanish life in the serene countryside. You can take a dip in the outdoor pool or soak in the indoor Arab-style baths.
On the next day your chauffeur will take you to Montilla, which is a little over half an hour’s drive away. Set among olive groves and vineyards, Montilla is an atmospheric town. Its streets are lined with period churches, palaces and understated houses. ...
Apart from feasting your eyes on the beautiful architecture, you’ll also pay a visit to Bodegas Alvear for an intimate tasting of wine and Manchego cheese. This celebrated winery has been serving customers since 1729 and has come to be known as the oldest establishment in southern Spain.
At the end of the wine tasting you’ll have lunch in an elegant Andalusian inn, which specialises in scrumptious regional cuisine. Our personal favourite in summer is salmorejo, a hearty and refreshing Andalusian version of gazpacho. After lunch you will be taken back to your hotel where you can spend the rest of the day as you wish, exploring the town and sightseeing on your own.
On your last day, after a traditional Spanish breakfast, you will be transferred back to the airport....
Hasta la vista y buen viaje!
