A Mediterranean walking break

25 April 2019

Walk in sunny Spain this Autumn on a Collett’s Walking Break in glorious Andalucia – Mediterranean, Moorish & Mountainous!

It’s time to book your Spring or Autumn walking holiday and we have the perfect break for you.

Include bed, breakfast, three course dinner with wine (6 nights) often eaten al fresco, airport transfers to and from Malaga airport (1hr) – and 5 stunning days venturing out on foot in the spectacular Sierra de Tejeda on either an easier/moderate walk or a harder hike.

Spring & Autumn Walking Breaks

Based at Posada La Plaza in picturesque Canillas de Albaida in the Sierra de Tejeda Natural Park, we provide a charming 7 night Saturday to Saturday break, ideal for ending the walking season, whilst escaping the autumnal British weather. You can expect warm hospitality, good food and wine – and the good company of other like-minded walkers. Also, your midweek rest day gives you the opportunity to visit the Alhambra in Granada or the renowned coastal caves of nearby Nerja.

Walk in sub-tropical Andalucia

It’s too hot to walk in sub-tropical Andalucia during summer, so we organise our holidays here in the spring and autumn when the temperatures are perfect. Day to day, guests elect whether to join an easier moderate walk or a harder higher level one. We are based 576m above sea level in picturesque and traditional Canillas de Albaida. You will walk in the beautiful hills and mountains of the Sierra Tejeda, where pretty whitewashed villages of Moorish origin are interspersed on hillsides of olive, almond and vine. On a clear day you will see across the Mediterranean to the Atlas Mountains of North Africa.

Our base at the Posada La Plaza was previously a 14th century convent. It opens on to the village’s traditional square, where we often eat exquisite three course dinners ‘al fresco.’ Some of our walks finish in the mid/early afternoon so that you have time to explore the village or relax by the pool, which is located at the nearby ‘Villa La Posada,’ which is owned by Posada La Plaza.

Prices are for half-board accommodation and per person per week based on 2 people sharing an en suite bedroom. Half-board accommodation includes bed, breakfast (7 days) & 3 course dinner with wine included (6 days). All prices include participation in our various daily organised walks (not available on Wednesdays, our day off). Transfers to and from Malaga airport – 1 hour away. Deposit – £100 per person – Balance due 8 weeks prior to departure.
