After visiting Málaga, take the road inland towards Ronda. Between Muslim buildings, aristocratic hotels, beautiful Andalusian mansions and churches, don't miss out on a stroll through the small cobbled streets of its old quarter.

On the edge of the Tajo Gorge and its impressive fault line, you are staying at the Hotel Montelirio, a romantic address in the heart of ancient Andalusia.

Day 3 : The Sierra de Ronda, Seville (150 km)

This stopover on the way to Seville is characterised by the diversity of landscapes and the wide open spaces you will encounter. On the way, you will see the archaeological site of the Roman ruins of Acinipo and its exceptional panorama, the village of Grazalema (the rainiest in Spain!) famous for its textile crafts, Zahara de la Sierra and its impressive Nasrid defensive system... an itinerary that is sometimes lined with lush vegetation, desolate landscapes, high mountains and cultivated plains.

Accommodation for 2 nights in a chic and authentic hotel in the city centre.

Day 4 : Sevilla

A day dedicated to visiting the Andalusian capital, cheerful, bright and warm. It is still one of the epicentres of Spanish culture: the heritage of the Arab dynasties is still very present, as are the traces of the influence and wealth that followed the colonial period.

Not to be missed in Seville: the Alcázar and its gardens, the Cathedral and the Giralda (an Almohad minaret converted into a bell tower), the Plaza de España without missing out on a few tapas in the Santa Cruz district!

Day 5 : Cordoba, Granada (350 km)

On the road to Granada: Córdoba, mainly known for its mosque-cathedral, a prodigy of spatial harmony that sums up the apogee of the Caliphate's architecture. Córdoba illuminates with the grandeur of its past, which was Roman, Jewish, Arab and Christian in turn. The flowery patios and balconies invite you to lose yourself in its narrow streets, before continuing your journey, dotted with white villages, fortified towns and castles, towards Granada.

Settling in for 2 nights at your hotel, at the foot of the Alhambra, in the historic centre of Granada.

Day 6 : Granada

At the foot of the Sierra Nevada and close to the Costa Tropical, Granada has always been a popular destination. The thousand-year-old atmosphere, the charm of the squares in the picturesque Albaicín quarter, the magnificence of the still preserved medieval palatial city, the Alhambra, or the gypsy quarter of Sacromonte with its troglodytic dwellings are all features that make the experience of the traveller in Granada unique and unforgettable. From your hotel, a magnificent example of a Hispano-Muslim building, you are ideally located to make these different excursions and to enjoy the many bars and restaurants in the centre in a lively atmosphere.

Day 7 : Costa Tropical, Nerja (100 km)

Back to the open spaces and road to the coast. On your way, you have the opportunity to take a break in the mountainous region of the Alpujarras, with its white villages and deep valleys that served as the last strongholds for the Muslims after the Reconquista. You can also take advantage of this privileged climate in Salobreña or Almuñecar, before stopping for the night in Nerja, the balcony of Europe.

Day 8 : Return flight
