Spring comes early to Andalucia, and our March holiday will be based in a beautiful converted hacienda located amid sunflower fields close to Seville. We will enjoy the region’s delicious cuisine, sample traditionally produced sherries in the bodegas of Jerez and visit historic cities including Seville, Cordoba and Cadiz – and a private flamenco performance at the hacienda will finish the trip in style. There will also be a day spent in the wonderful Coto Donana National Park, an expanse of wetlands and coastal dunes which is an important haven for wildlife including the Iberian Lynx and wild horses, as well migratory birds and hundreds of varieties of indigenous flora.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Fly to Seville

    Depart London Gatwick for our flight to Seville. We will be met and transferred to our hotel for the duration of the holiday, the Hacienda de San Rafael. The Hacienda is a beautifully restored farmhouse in the countryside, approximately half an hour from Seville and surrounded by sunflower fields. Rooms are laid our around a courtyard, and there are extensive gardens with an outdoor swimming pool as well as a cosy lounge and dining room where we will dine each evening.
  • Day 2 - Seville

    This morning we will be collected at the Hacienda and taken into the centre of Seville where we will enjoy a walking tour of the old city centre with an expert local guide. We will pause for lunch at a local tapas bar and explore much of the Barrio Santa Cruz district as well as the Giralda, Catherdral and the Alcazar. We will return to the Hacienda for dinner this evening.
  • Day 3 - Cordoba

    Today is devoted to exploring the nearby Moorish city of Cordoba, famous for the spectacular Mezquita – a vast mosque which is so cavernous that it conceals an entire church within its colonnaded hall. We will also visit the Synagogue and the baroque Casa de las Bulas de la Santa Cruzada, which now houses the Bullfighting Museum on Plaza Maimonides and stop for lunch at a local restaurant.
  • Day 4 - National Park

    We shall explore the vast Coto Doñana National Park with an expert wildlife guide this morning. We will have a picnic lunch in the park before returning to the Hacienda for some free time to relax in the afternoon.
  • Day 5 - Cadiz

    This morning we will head south to El Puerto de Santa Maria, a sleepy seaside town which is a popular retreat for Madrileños during the summer months. We will cross the bay of Cadiz on the ferry and explore the city itself, one of the most historic in Andalucia, but little-visited compared to its neighbours. Lunch will be in a local seafood restaurant.
  • Day 6 - Sherry towns

    Our last day in Andalucia is devoted to one of the region’s most famous exports, sherry. We will travel south to the two major sherry producing towns of Jerez and Sanlucar de Barrameda, and will enjoy a tour and tasting at one of the most famous bodegas, which has an exceptional art collection alongside its wines. After lunch with a chilled glass of fino, we return to the Hacienda this evening for dinner, followed by a private flamenco performance to finish our trip in style.
  • Day 7 - Fly to London

    The last morning is at leisure until we depart for our transfer to Seville airport.

Set among sunflower and cotton fields, located in the heart of the country some 25 miles from Jerez and Seville, this is without doubt one of our favourite hotels in Spain.
