Are you ready for Active Cultural Holidays?

Active cultural holidays take place in Andalusia. We provide accommodation, outdoor sports and travel, together with direct experience of the local culture. We want you to feel you really got to know the place and the people. Much of travelling nowadays is about passively seeing things. Active cultural holidays help you understand and participate in what you see. It is active outdoor learning at its best, led by our passion to share.

Our two locations in Frigiliana are “Monasteria” house and villa “El Jardin”. Both are suitable for all ages and backgrounds and will be the base for your stay in Andalusia.

How learning through active holidays works.

Cycling in mountains between small villages and old farm houses surrounded by avocado and mango orchards, in old days by vineyards, almond and olive groves. Observing and learning how the architecture and agriculture evolved over the centuries. How local people adopted in direct response to influence of global, socio-economic and cultural factors. Understanding and experiencing in our own orchard what it takes to bring that fruit on the table.

A trip that teaches respect to hard rural life and work. It inspires a desire to grow your own food and it promotes support to growers.
