Rooms with views of the Sierra Nevada
A holiday in the south of Spain is a firm favourite with anyone looking for guaranteed sun, good temperatures all year round and absolute comfort. Andalusia has a simply seductive nature: from charming, historic cities that will surprise you at every turn, to mountains that are either covered with snow or olive trees. There are also endless beaches where you can enjoy the Mediterranean from any of the Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Andalusia. Enjoy your holidays where life is good.
Andalusia boasts museums such as the Casa Picasso; rivers including the Guadalquivir, and a legacy of Moorish art as well as monuments as imposing as the Alhambra. Visitors can also ski in the mountains, surf the waves and, above all, immerse themselves in the region’s delightful customs with its culture of sunlit terraces and tapas.
One of the region’s biggest claims to fame is its gastronomy. Summer simply tastes better with a bowl of gazpacho, a cold vegetable soup, or a Cordovan-style salmorejo, a thick puree made from tomatoes and bread. All year round you can enjoy sardines on skewers, puchero, the famous Andalusian stew, or just a slice of toast with oil and local ham. And, in between mouthfuls, don’t forget to take advantage of the lively nightlife, fiestas and the atmosphere of the traditional bars.
There is so much to do, but you should make a point of strolling through the Albaicín, the old Moorish quarter of Granada, and the Alhambra, which dominates the views from the Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Granada. If it’s relaxing on the beach and in the spa that you’re after, the Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Malaga is the place to go. For endless sunny days gazing onto the Atlantic, stay in the Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Huelva; or stay in the Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Cádiz to enjoy the journey from the hotel to the seafront promenade of Cádiz and its coastline.
It would be easy to holiday for ten years in southern Spain. The challenge will be to choose which of our hotels in Andalusia will live up to the expectations of the trip you have dreamed of.
