Our holiday in May 2010, March/April 2011 and October 2012 went beautifully. Our next adventure will be October 5th - 11th 2013. Programme details will be available in the autumn but meanwhile please call 020 7324 2563 (weekdays 10am-5pm) or email email@example.com with any queries.
TLC's Literary Adventure at Casa Ana in Andalucia is exceptional value at £695 .
The cost covers places on a room-share basis*, at ¾ board and is exclusive of flights. Meals at restaurants and the transport on the Tuesday excursion will cost a small extra fee. The food is of a high standard and all breakfasts, lunches and two meals served at Casa Ana by the chefs.
* Single supplements are available for a maximum of four places only at an extra cost of £120 per week person.
Rooms are allotted on a first-come first-serve basis. For further enquiries or to book please call 020 7 324 2563 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The course is designed for a maximum of twelve participants. There are spaces for 8/9 people at Casa Ana and as this is our working base for the week. We will fill spaces at Casa Ana first. If we have a full quota of twelve people then three or four people will stay at a B & B a three minute walk away which is of a similar standard. Spaces at Casa Ana will be designated on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please be assured we will eat together at Casa Ana for breakfast and lunch, and two evening meals. The B & B is www.Sierraymar.com who are also partners in this event.
We will provide a private bus for pick up from Malaga airport at 1.30pm on Saturday 5th October 2013. Meet your tutors in the VIPs Bar, Terminal Three from 12pm. The van will also pick-up from the Hotel Venecia at 1.45pm if you have stayed over the night before. See Staying over the night before, below.
If you do not want an early start to your first day of adventure, or stress re flight cancellations/delays, we highly recommend staying in Malaga the night before. Staying in Malaga is delightful. We recommend the hotel Venecia which is reasonably priced and pleasant, centrally positioned near the Picasso museum, central shopping promenade and beautiful gardens alongside the quay. It has a breakfast bar, and there are many local restaurants for lunch or supper within a five minutes’ walk. Tutors will stay at the hotel Venecia the night of Friday 4th October and will be there to meet you. Book through www.hotelveneciamalaga.com. Other suggestions would be the cheap but Rough Guide recommended www.hostaljuanita.es. Otherwise, there are a range of hotel and B & B options in Malaga, but do make sure they are either near the airport so you can make the 1.30pm airport pick-up, or the Hotel Venecia for the 1.45pm hotel Venecia pick-up. Here is the location and google map for Hotel Venecia.
The van will come from the airport to pick-up those who have stayed over from the hotel Venecia at 1.45pm after it has picked up others from the airport.
The journey from Malaga to Casa Ana takes 2.5 hours approx. The journey is part of the fun, and takes in the dramatic Spanish coastline before turning inland in to the mountainous region.
The private bus for transfers back on Friday October 11th 2013 will leave Casa Ana at 9am and arrive at Malaga airport 11.30 am (approx).
This is important: Please do not book flights for before 2pm at the earliest to be safe, leaving plenty of time for check-ins/traffic etc.
Ferreirola, the village we are staying in, is small but car parking is available. If you are making your own way to Casa Ana by hired car then please contact Anne Hunt on 0034 958 766 270 or email email@example.com for details about how to get there by road. We recommend www.goldcar.es as being well-priced and reliable with a base at Malaga airport.
If you want to take advantage of being in Andalucia and want to visit the Alhambra palace in Granada, do book tickets for this well in advance at: www.servicaixa.es, or you can phone their English speaking team on (0034) 902 888 001 from 8 am to midnight Spanish time every day.
You can contact Anne Hunt on 0034 958 766 270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org at Casa Ana for further information about travelling on.
Flights to and from Malaga are not included in the price but there are several low budget airlines that fly there as well as other airlines. We recommend Easyjet or Monarch which offer morning flights at 6.40 or 8.30 (for example) from Gatwick and Stansted.
If you do not want an early start to your day you could stay the night before.
