We love Andalucia and we want you to join us to discover this beautiful lesser known area of Southern Spain - away from the crowds but still with blue skies, warmth and the spanish joy of life! This time we bring you a literary walking trip - to discover the places and paths walked by Virginia Woolf on her visit to the Alpujarras in 1923. Some paths are much the same and guided by Encarna we will discover more of Virgina Woolfs life. We have a holiday based in a neighbouring Alpujarras village starting Sept 29th for 6 nights so if you would like to extend your stay and explore more of Andalucia please let us know and we will arrange a discount. If you would like to extend and visit Malaga we have a 25% discount at our partner hotel The Mariposa run by two sisters. Let us know and we can help organise.
Dates: Friday Sept 22nd to Thursday Sept 28th
Guide: Encarna Castillo our local english speaking spanish guide.
Encarna has a passion for Virginia Woolf and will lead us on a journey to discover a walking holiday which Virginia Woolf did herself . In 1923 she visited Granada and then on to a small village Yegen in the Alpujarra in southern Spain. Join us to find out more!
We have a holiday from Sept 29th in Capillera another white village in the area so if you would like to make a two week holiday in Andalucia please let us know and we can arrange a discount.
Walking Grade: 2 Goats
Base: Friday 22nd Sept and Saturday 23rd Sept – 2 nights at the Monjas del Carmen Hotel in the centre of Granada.
From Sunday we travel by local bus to the village of Yegen and stay 4 nights at El Rincón de Yegen.
Getting there: Best is to fly to and from Granada but direct flights are minimal. We will do a group transfer from Malaga as flights are more frequent and cheaper. Arrive for a 15.00 group transfer. Return 10am on Thursday 28th so do get flights after 3pm.
We can recommend a stay in Malaga to make it a two city break.
If you do want to extend your stay and visit other places in Andalucia we can help.
