Your Guided Group Holiday to Costa de la Luz & Seville

On this unforgettable holiday, we’ll discover Costa de la Luz, a sunny, vibrant region of Andalucía. Facing the Atlantic, the Costa de la Luz is renowned for its beaches and sunshine, our hotel will be a perfect base to explore the best of the region.  Successive invasions and influences from the Romans to the Moors have left their imprint on the landscape and culture of Andalucía, making for a fascinating journey through time. We’ll take a day trip to explore Seville, where its vibrant historic centre boasts remarkable sites, including the cathedral and La Giralda tower, the vast and impressive Alcázar Palace. We’ll learn more about the life of Christopher Columbus before he set off on his first voyage to the New World at the Muelle de las Carabelas. On this trip, we’ll also enjoy plenty of leisure time to relax on the beach or visit other seaside towns, with recommendations and tips from our expert guide.

Please Note: Depending on departure date, the holiday will be based in either Islantilla or Punta Umbria.
