Southern Spain is the place to be for an authentic travel experience. While there are plenty of tourists, it’s easy to find hidden spots, whether it’s a small whitewashed village or a local bar on a quiet street. Despite hosting plenty of visitors from around the world, Southern Spain has somehow managed to retain its traditional charm, which can be absolutely lovely and you just go with it and enjoy yourself. Eat some jamón at 11:00pm for dinner, shout “Vamos!” along with the locals as you watch the fútbol game on the bar TV and treat yourself to an afternoon siesta to rest up for a big night out on the town.

Flying in from the UK we will escort you to our own fully accessible villa on the banks of the romantic Italian lakes. This 5 night assisted holiday is a popular destination because it offers you the chance to take in some of the most breathtaking scenery that Europe has to offer. This is a large group holiday so you will have ample opportunity to meet new friends, enjoy home cooked food with fresh Italian ingredients and unwind by the lake and perhaps enjoy a spot of fishing or some water sports.
With activities on offer from boat trips, through to water sports, maybe a walk through olive groves or a local vineyard with a bit of tasting at the end, we are sure that you will love your time in La Bella Italia. We will see chefs throwing pizza bases, taste the most amazing fresh ingredients and pasta dishes, and obviously stop for a glass of the local wine. With fresh olive oil we will be experiencing amazing fresh salads with vinaigrettes.
Back at the villa we will have BBQ’s aplenty and eat al fresco, imagine coffee on a terrace whilst the sun comes up in the morning with biscotti and fresh bread with maybe a slice of local cheese or cold meat a l’Italiano. Local farm fresh butter with local honey or jam. This is an experience not to be missed.
There will be plenty of space for a bit of “me too” time, when you can watch a video, or play your music, in order to relax. Maybe just take a wander into the local village to experience the real Italian winding streets, view the cypresses, feel the sun on your face and just take in the beauty that surrounds you.
A local market will be the highlight of any village week and we hope that you will get involved with buying the local produce, maybe meat and fish that we will all cook as a group. Maybe even a little bartering will be done.
Lots of culture and history will also surround the area, so we will be visiting anything of interest that is local to us, churches, museums, arts and crafts, whatever takes our fancy dependent on what people are interested in.
