A little bit of Andalucian heaven: Vejer and Conil

October 23, 2014

0

After a whirlwind 36 hours in Seville we were looking for something a little more relaxed…. Fortunately for us a friend offered his place in Vejer de la Frontera – a perfect Andalucian whitewashed village on top of a hill near the coast, a short drive from Cadiz and with views to Morocco from the roof […]

A feast of senses in Sevilla

Just back from a whirlwind tour of Seville and am still on a high so want to share what I found so utterly brilliant. We were in Seville for 36 hours so I’m going to take you through it New York Times style…Arrive late on Friday night, check into the Hotel Hospes del Rey and go for Tapas […]

The Sherry Triangle: Sanlucar, Cadiz and Jerez

April 5, 2010

0

The ‘sherry triangle’ is in the south-west of Spain, which as the name suggests, is where sherry comes from. Usually a dry region, after this long, wet winter, the 6 hour drive down from Madrid was considerably greener than I expected.

In Valencia I had a couple of dinner recommendations from a friend so without any research we made a reservation at La Sucursal at 9pm, a little ahead of the usual Spanish time, so that we could then go and see one of the Las fallas parades 10-12pm. The food was so plentiful and so […]

A weekend in Toledo

February 21, 2010

As a belated valentine’s present, my boyfriend took me to the medieval town of Toledo, south-east of Madrid. It’s just half an hour on a direct train from the famous Atocha Station – ideal for an overnight stay, or even a day trip. He booked Hotel del Cardenal which is in an 18th Century Manor […]

Mallorca

February 20, 2010

I have to admit that I had always associated Mallorca with British package tour holidays to Magaloof (on the south west of the island) so when a friend suggested going for the weekend I wasn’t entirely enthusiast. How wrong I was and how happy I am that I accepted her suggestion – it is stunning. […]
