Escape Christmas 2014 Break

Escape commercial Christmas breaks! And the work involved! All-inclusive price for our three-day best of the breaks!

Once again we are offering our three day Christmas House Party featuring great food and superb wines in a peaceful atmosphere with a group of like-minded companions. Everything is home-made (except the wine); our food is local and ecologically produced as far as possible.

“The food was beyond delicious- a Christmas Eve feast of countless tapas including a spectacular flaming chorizo, and the best mince pies and Christmas pudding I’ve ever had. Award-winning food! Fantastic place and fantastic company! A must on your trip in Southern Spain.” Previous guest commented on Tripadvisor

Arrive on 24th December, Christmas Eve (or earlier if you wish. Extra days can be added either end of this break)
Sip a mug of mulled wine while settling in to your super comfortable room. Stroll around the village. Hike to the next village to stretch your legs and make lots of room for the ….

Feast of Tapas which will be served family style in the evening. Once again it will feature our famous Chorizo al Infierno! And new inventions from Di’s kitchen.

25th December, Christmas Day, begins with a sumptuous Champagne and Smoked Salmon breakfast (plus all our usual breakfast choices)

Spend the morning walking the beautiful Alto Genal valley. Ten minutes or three hours. Just down the lane or to another village and back.
Or choose from our wide selection of games – Scrabble or Rummikub, cards or chess.
Or read Di’s recently published book. Or another from our vast library.
Or watch a movie. Old traditional weepies or the latest releases.

We will serve hors d’oeuvres from one in the afternoon followed by Late Christmas Lunch. Our succulent barbequed turkey will be accompanied by some traditional dishes and new exciting combinations. Our superb cuisine is served family style – we pass dishes of vegetables, dark or light meat, help yourself, fill up your plate. Toast your loved ones. Nostalgia, bonhommie, a time for memories of the past and hope for the future.

Dessert of course follows with again some traditional choices and some new creations.
Coffee, chocolates, snooze, zzzzzzzzzzzz

In the evening we will offer a choice of snacks including our famous Croque Señor for those who need topping up.
Last year there was a mammoth pictionary game till the early hours. Or so they told me. I was already asleep.

wine

26th December, Boxing Day, starts off with a breakfast featuring old-fashioned mimosas and retro huevos a la flamenca.

We suggest, but do not insist upon, a day in Ronda. Just fifteen minutes drive away. A wealth of history, monuments, culture, and fooooodie places! We will provide you with our detailed route notes through the ancient town. And we will meet you at the best place to eat in Ronda at 2 pm should you care to join us. (not included in the package price)

In the evening, traditional leftovers with a twist, cold turkey sandwiches have never been better than at Los Castaños! Home pickled vegetables. Fresh mixed salad. Nibbles. And local wine of course

27th December  – after a delicious breakfast, time to say goodbye. But if you would like to linger a little longer in the peaceful mountains, you can reserve more nights.
