Holiday information

 

A touring holiday in Andalucia

Unearth the hidden treasures of Seville, Jerez and Cádiz thanks to the detailed self-guided walking tours we provide for this self-guided journey by rail through Andalucia's famous 'sherry triangle'. Enjoy great tapas, fish and seafood and stay in stylish, beautifully restored mansions.
 
South from Seville, the light-flooded plains of Cádiz roll towards the sea. Silver grey with olives and rich with the scent of oranges, this for many is iconic Spain – cradle of flamenco, home of traditional tapas and land of the great sherry bodegas.

In this leisurely exploration of south-western Andalucia, we lead you through three of its most fascinating cities: historic Seville, once the treasury of the Spanish Kings; lovely Jerez, an intoxicating blend of sherry, flamenco and dancing horses; and anarchic Cádiz, a beautiful jumble of narrow, shaded streets and planted open squares surrounded almost entirely by sea.

Itinerary

The key to Inntravel holidays is flexibility. You can start on the day of your choice, and are free to add extra nights.
  • Arrival in Seville
    Night 1: at Casas del Rey de Baeza (the first of two nights here).
    As your first night's accommodation is on the day of travel, Day 1 is your first day of exploration.
  • Explore Seville
    Follow our walking notes and discover Seville’s winding, whitewashed streets, Baroque churches and Mudéjar palaces. Wonder at the world’s largest Gothic cathedral with its soaring Moorish tower, admire the Alcázar’s sumptuous gardens (online booking essential to avoid long queues), stroll between the fountains and waterways of the splendid Plaza de España, and enjoy citrus-scented evenings exploring the city’s traditional tapas bars or wandering through its old, tightly-knit neighbourhoods where you’ll hear the soulful strains of flamenco pulsing out from authentic tablaos.
    Alcazar gardens, Seville
  • Seville to Jerez
    Travel the short distance by rail to the quintessentially Spanish city of Jerez de la Frontera where you spend two nights at the Hotel Casa Grande, within easy walking distance of the city’s main sights. (Journey time: 1 hour)
  • Explore Jerez
    Apex of the famous ‘sherry triangle’, Jerez is very much focused around this versatile – and often under-appreciated – drink; and not the sweet cream variety that has flavoured many a British trifle over the years. The Spanish prefer theirs dry, very dry or drier still, poured from on high by a skilled venenciador and served fresh and chilled in a proper copita. As you can imagine, it’s not hard to find somewhere to enjoy sherry in Jerez, but our self-guided tour takes will lead you to several of the city's simple tabancos, one-time wine shops where it is dispensed directly from the cask. Beyond the bodegas, there are some delightful historic gems to discover, including the serene Moorish Alcázar with its shaded courtyards and spectacular view over the great Gothic-Mudéjar cathedral. True aficionados will also want to visit the coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, home of the delicate manzanilla sherry and gateway to the unique Doñana National Park, Europe’s largest nature reserve.
    Alcazar, Jerez
  • Jerez to Cádiz
    Today you take the train to Cádiz, a city surrounded almost entirely by sea, and once Spain’s gateway to the Americas. Stay at the charming 18th-century Hotel Argantonio or at a supplement, choose Casa de las Cuatro Torres – so named for the four impressive watchtowers that offer superb panoramas of the port and city. (Journey time: 45 minutes).
  • Explore Cádiz
    If ever a city were made for wandering, Cádiz – with its grid of long, elegant streets that stretch towards the sea – is it. Narrow, sinuous and practically traffic-free, these shaded passageways are decorated with layers of finely wrought balconies and large, beautifully shaped windows. As you weave your way through them, you may wish to pause at the hidden Roman amphitheatre and golden-domed Baroque cathedral – particularly impressive at sunset. But to really get under the skin of this entrancing city, we recommend settling down in one of its ubiquitous freidurías with a plate of delicious fried fish and simply soaking up the unique atmosphere.
    We thoroughly recommend adding an extra night in Cádiz and taking a boat across the bay to visit unspoiled Puerto de Santa María. Overlooked by most tourists, this delightful town is a firm favourite with the locals, who flock to its thriving sherry bodegas and extraordinary seafood restaurants. For those who are still keen to learn more about the area’s iconic tipple, Santa María is also home to the Osborne sherry winery, whose famous black-bull logo you will almost certainly recognise.

Accommodation

Our carefully chosen hotels are all within walking distance of the major sights.

In each city we work with more than one hotel, as shown below. All are hand-picked by us and, unless there is a price implication (in which case we will contact you to discuss your options), we will tell you which one we have booked for you on your booking confirmation.

Whichever hotels you stay at, it is well worth adding extra nights to give you more time to explore. (If you only have time for one additional night, we strongly suggest spending it in Cádiz, for the chance to catch the ferry across to Puerto de Santa María.)

    Travelling from outside the UK

    If you are flying from outside Europe,  we recommend flying via Madrid. To discuss onward connecting travel to the start of your holiday, please contact us.

    This list of flight options should be used as a guide only, and you should check each airline’s website for current routes, frequency and schedules. Not all flights operate daily, and may not run for the entire season. You should also heed the latest flight arrival time and earliest flight departure time, as it may not be possible to arrange connecting travel outside these times. Please do not book your flights until we have confirmed your accommodation to you. Alternatively, our expert reservations team will be happy to offer advice and to make flight bookings for you for any of the options listed above. We charge £35 per person for our flight booking service. Your flights are then covered by our package-booking conditions, which give you greater protection in the event of delay or cancellation, as well as providing ATOL cover.

  • Prices below are based on 2 people travelling together.

    Unless otherwise stated, connecting travel by rail or bus tends to be from the city centre station, rather than from its airport, and connections between the two should be paid for locally.

    Where a price range is given, the price you pay depends on your date of travel.

Reviews

If you've experienced this holiday first hand, why not write a review?

We are keen for as many customers as possible to review their holiday. To make it easier to do so, we include a specific review section on our post-holiday questionnaire, and this is what we publish here, unedited. Read our full review policy >

 

FAQs

If you have any questions relating to this or any other Inntravel holiday, our friendly travel experts will be happy to help. You might also find our General FAQs section helpful.
  • The information that we send to you 2-3 weeks before your holiday includes practical information about each stage of your journey so that you can travel confidently from one hotel to another, recommendations for places to visit and eat out in each place, plus cultural information about the area. Where applicable, we also provide notes for a self-guided walking tour of most cities, and some large towns. Sample travel pack >
  • We can book a wide range of routes from the UK with a variety of airlines. As well as being more convenient for you to book all elements of your holiday together, it also means that we’ll accept liability for your travel arrangements, so if things go wrong, such as the airline going bust, we’ll make suitable alternative arrangements for you. The fee for this service is £35 per person (£15 for children aged 2-11). More information on flights >
  • Absolutely! We are experts in tailored rail travel. Making use of sleeper trains or stopovers in cities along the route, we can get you from London to virtually anywhere in mainland Europe. We can even make arrangements to Mallorca, Sicily and Norway with a combination of ferries and rail. Please contact us to discuss your plans.
  • We can’t book flights that originate outside the UK, but if you wanted to book your own flights to London (or elsewhere in the UK), we can make all onward travel arrangements (including flights) from there. Alternatively, if you are booking your own flights to an airport in continental Europe that’s appropriate for your holiday, we can book onward rail travel and/or taxis. More information about how we can tailor holidays for customers outside the UK >
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.

  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can incur a five or six-figure bill.

    Many insurers offer travel insurance (you can find details on our insurance page of a policy that you may like to consider if you are a UK resident), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies – including falling ill with Covid-19 while on holiday – and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.

    When you purchase a policy, be sure to check that it covers the activities you'll be doing on holiday and that it is adequate for your own individual needs.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. If you’re a UK citizen, you need a full British passport to travel to Spain, but not a visa (please note, however, that a new travel authorisation system is being introduced). If you are a citizen of another country, you’ll need to check requirements with the national embassy or your own consulate.

    Current information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice for UK citizens can be found through the Travel Health Pro website. You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). You should also apply for a Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) if your EHIC has expired (if you have a still-valid EHIC, you can use this until it expires).
  • (Castilian) Spanish is one of several official languages; Catalan, Basque and Gallego have equal status in Catalonia, the Basque Country and Galicia, respectively. The currency is the Euro. Spanish time is GMT/UTC + 1. It uses Daylight Saving Time, so in summer is on BST + 1.
  • For information on the practicalities of travel now that the UK is no longer part of the European Union, visit www.gov.uk/visit-eu-switzerland-norway-iceland-liechtenstein.
  • The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.
