Fancy a quick week away somewhere hot but not too far away? This holiday to Almeria, Spain is perfect for you. The weather stays at about 24°C during the day, making it an enjoyable warmth that will take the edge off the knowledge that winter is coming.
You will be staying in the 4* Sercotel Gran Fama hotel, which is situated in the financial district of Almeria, just a short distance from the beach and received a TripAdvisor rating of 79%. Being located where it is, it is surrounded by museums and various other popular tourist attractions such as the Puerta de Purchena Square and the Our Lady of the Sea. This means that you will have plenty to do if you don’t feel like heading to the beach every day.
This deal is available through expedia.co.uk and only costs £228 per person, which is an absolute bargain! It includes your Hotel and your Flights. The hotel is a self-catering facility, which would mean that you could either choose to eat at the hotel restaurant, or you could choose to go elsewhere. The beach front has plenty of restaurants that you could choose from, or you could get the short taxi ride into the city centre and explore the area there and see what you could find. You tend to find the best places on the quieter back streets but your hotel will be able to recommend various places for you!
If you get the chance I would recommend heading to Alcazaba, a castle in Almeria which has been really well maintained as has a beautiful range of flowers surrounding its walls, it’s free to all E.U Citizens as well, so there isn’t really a good reason not to go!
This is the ideal holiday for anybody! It’s a really interesting and beautiful area of Europe that is significantly underrated. Definitely worth going for a week to fill your head with images of blue skies, turquoise waters and sandy beaches that will help you through the long Winter season.
