French Alps Circuit

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful holiday. The Queryras region is fantastic, the walking was challenging but within our capabilities & we loved it. The accommodation was generally better than we expected and the food throughout was excellent. We would highly recommend this holiday to anybody wanting a wonderful walking holiday. Thank you!

Seville, Sea and Sierra

A walking tour with a difference including all the best scenery, history, traditions and gastronomy of western Andalucia. The sparkling Atlantic Ocean washes the golden sands of the Costa de la Luz with its dunes, salt-pans, traditional craft fishing and sea birds. Cadiz city, protected from attack on its peninsula, has controlled for 3000 years the seaways and the entry to the Guadalquivir, Andalucia's biggest river. Nearby is Jerez, renown for its wines and its flamenco dance. The river is navigated by ships upstream to Seville: the capital of Andalucia, replete with the history of Iberians, Romans, Moors and Castilians, a producer of fine porcelain and the main home of Flamenco. A world away from the bustle of Seville is the Sierra de Aracena Natural Park, with cork-oak forests, raptors, Iberian pigs and traditional white villages, as well as a civilization dating back fifty centuries.
