Andalucia New Year Break – a perfect antidote to grey winter
Bring in the Andalucian New Year at La Posada De San Marcos and enjoy a New Year’s break to get away from it all!
You can take it easy with a good book sitting by the fire and surrounded by the comfort of underfloor heating provide by our heat pump or you can take advantage of our detailed photographic walking notes which will show you your way around ancient cobbled paths, beautiful views and tiny villages where time has almost stood still.
Andalucia Holidays could be even better
Why don’t you extend your stay until the 6th Jan to include the magic evening of the 3 Kings (5th Jan) where the whole of Spain celebrates the arrival of the 3 wise men in Bethlehem with floats and parades. In the big cities it is a huge affair where the floats all follow a theme and the 3 Kings throw masses of sweets – young and old alike fight for them.
In Alájar and Linares it is a quieter affair, much more intimate and the whole village is involved. Linares de La Sierra has nativity scenes throughout the village where the villagers dress up and and depict a scene of their choice without moving a mot. You can wander around the organised route without missing a scene. The 3 Kings parade follows with the Kings on donkeys! Hot chocolate and homemade cakes are the order of the day not to mention a quick shot of the local aniseed firewater. At the end of the parade the Kings dismount from their thrones and make their way to the church where all the children are waiting for their present. Experience authentic true Spain with us! Book Andalucia New Year Break with extended stay. Stay with locals live like local. We’ll gladly explain you all the details of this canonic holiday so you enrich you knowledge about other country culture and habits. And not to mention that it’s simply beautiful to watch the parade – a luck for photographers. You’ll have plenty of amazing photos to show your friends back at home.
