Why should you come?
Everything you need is here!
The Region of Almeria, the only designated desert region in Europe, is in the exteme south east of Andalucia in southern spain. It remains today one of the most unspoilt and most beautiful spots along the Mediterranean coastline, boasting approximately 3,200 hours of sunshine per year, this is the driest and warmest climate in Europe.
The long sandy beaches, busy marinas, fishing ports and coastal resorts are perfectly complimented, a little further in land, by a myriad of interesting Andalucian towns and villages together with the more modern addition of championship quality golfing venues. Despite all this much of the region lies untouched and is now protected from develoment thus preserving this beautiful landscape for generations to come. From the coastal Cabo De Gata natural park and Sierra Cabrera mountain range to inland desert regions of Sorbas and Tabernas the region is scattered with the pristine landscapes that are so much enjoyed by its people and its visitors.
Typical Andalucian whitwashed villages like Nijar, Mojacar Pueblo and Agua Amarga ensure that the senses are filled with all that is southern Spain where the bougainvillea, Jasmin and citrus trees abound through the winding narrow streets and bust town squares. Back on the sea front, the typically Spanish fishing port of Garrucha hosts a busy marina, large fishing fleet and a selection of the finest restaurants in the area. Mojacar Playa, a little further down the coast, has become a modern and popular holiday resort enjoying year round sunshine and many miles of sandy beaches. Further south the pristine marine enviroment of the Cabo De Gata is the perfect playground for sailing and diving while the stunning Andalucian landscape is a haven for hill wakling and horse riding.

Andalucia is best known for its beaches, sunny weather and flamenco. But food is a hugely important part of southern Spain – indeed, the Mediterranean diet was recently recognised as being part of UNESCO’s world cultural heritage. A key part of Andalucian life is eating out. It is so reasonably priced in most parts of Andalucia, especially if you know where to go, that going out for tapas – tapear – is many people’s preferred way to spend an evening . Spain’s chefs are widely acknowledged as being among the best in the world and Andalucia’s chefs are held in high regard too. If you’re at the beach, head to your nearest chiringuito – beach-side restaurant.
If you choose to cook at home then you have a great choice of ingredients, all produced on your doorstep, in Andalucia: fresh seafood – some of which you won’t even recognise, as it doesn’t exist back home – from the many hundreds of km of coastline; locally grown fruit and vegetables are of top quality; jamon serrano, ideal for an Andalucian breakfast, on toast with olive oil and crushed tomato, or a sandwich. Olives are a delicious and healthy snack, and grown all over the region.
