Andalusia, land of olive-trees, deep blue skies and whitewashed towns… We will
focus our visit in Western Andalusia provinces: Seville, Huelva, Cadiz, and
Cordoba. Seville has inspired travellers for centuries. Its beauty and charm
come from a mixture of many elements; its legacy of great Moorish and Christian
architecture, the myths of Carmen and Don Juan, flamenco music, its incomparable
fiestas, the brilliant sunshine, its inhabitants who live life to the fullest...
We could go on and on.
Seville is also a great place for discovering the cuisine and wines of
Andalusia. The city itself is considered by many to be the best place in Spain
for tapas, the small portions of food served in almost every bar in the city.
There is something to suit all tastes be it meat, seafood, vegetables,
charcuterie, olives, cheese etc. Also, without having to travel far from Seville
we will visit the areas where fine sherry, superb ham and high-quality olive oil
are produced. That is Jerez in the province of Cadiz for Sherry, Sierra de
Aracena (North of Huelva province) for Iberico ham and Cordova for olive oil.
is a rural province far from the topics of the coastal Andalusia. We will visit
its countryside, land of olive groves, vineyards, small orchards and smooth
downs. We will visit an old traditional olive oil mill. We will learn how to
taste their different olive oils and discover Cordoban cuisine which has its own
recipes like "Salmorejo", local version of "Gazpacho".
Your hotels, in the historic centre of Seville (4 nights) and Cordoba (2
nights), are some of the most charming in the cities and will serve as the
perfect bases for your stay here.
