Christmas Package 2018 | Malaga | Spain | Country Hotel | Christmas

We love Christmas - the food, the company, the bonhomie - but loath the commercialism. If you feel the same, come join this joyous and peaceful 3 day escape Christmas break. There are no malls here!!

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.” A previous guest comment on Tripadvisor

24th December, Christmas Eve 

Arrival. 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 ….

Traditional Spanish Nochebuena dishes will be served family style in the evening. Delicious food from Di´s international kitchen.

25th December, Christmas Day

Coffee, chocolates, snooze, zzzzzzzzzzzz

Last year there was a mammoth Pictionary game till the early hours. Or so they told me. I was already asleep.
