Costa de Almeria runs along in the south-east corner of Spain, taking in the colossal Sierra Nevada mountain range and the Mediterranean Sea. On this trip, you’ll explore the region’s unspoiled countryside and tucked-away villages from the comfort of an air-conditioned coach. Your first stop will be in the whitewashed village of Alboloduy. There’ll be time to check out the traditional Andalusian architecture and to stretch your legs, before climbing back on the coach and moving on to the village of Alhama. This place is the entrance to the well-known Alpujarra region – an area famous for its Turkish baths and medicinal waters. Your guide will give you the lowdown on the history of the place as you admire the scenery. As you come to the Enix and Cortijo Las Palomas areas of the region, crane your neck to see the sky-high wind turbines that dot the landscape. Your final stop will be at a rustic farmhouse, where you’ll be offered a glass of wine or a beer to drink alongside some of the local Serrano ham and cheese. Finally, your coach will snake along the coastal road which runs through the town of Aguadulce – expect sweeping sea views as you make your way back to the port.
