andalusia

andalusia spain

A short haul flight and sunny pretty much all year.  It's perfect possible to relax by the pool even in January. 

Away from the tourist hot spots and the miles of beach side high rise blocks, the province of Andalusia has a delightful, unspoilt countryside.  We have hand picked a few wonderful places to stay.

Choose from a mini yoga and spa resort, with a distinctly oriental flavour, in the hills behind Marbella or a comfortable boutique hotel near Sotogrande where The Healthy Holiday Company runs week long in:spa retreats (luxury health, fitness and detox) and fitscape fitness holidays (focusing on fitness training) throughout the year. Or, choose the luxurious Finca Cortesin - ideal for golfers, tennis players and spa lovers.  It also has a children's club from May to October.

Just outside Andalusia, we can recommend the SHA wellness clinic on the Costa Blanca, near Alicante.

We also have a selection of lovely private residences in the beautiful hills near the famous hilltop village of Gaucin:

We have team of healthy experts based in Andalusia, so can easily arrange for personal trainers or yoga teachers to visit you at the villa.  We also have superb chefs, plus some great hiking and mountain biking guides too. 

We are very happy to chat you through the options and organise the holiday that suits you best.

Weather and when to go

The latitude of Andalusia means that there is never a bad time to visit with plenty of activities available throughout the year and the temperatures rarely dropping below 15°C, although swimming in the Atlantic between December and February is not recommended! Between June and September the temperatures are in the thirties, whilst the rest of the year sits in the teens with Spring and Autumn in the twenties.
