COSTA DEL SOL


Spain is an absolutely magnificent country, and its people are so welcoming you may actually never want to go back home! I’ve personally been to Costa del Sol every winter for the last seven years and, quite frankly, I expect to keep going back again and again and again!

Going on a trip is always great, but truly experiencing a trip is a thousand times better. And that’s precisely what it’s like in Spain.  On a three to nine-week vacation, you can adopt a slower pace of life as you explore the local markets, discover laid-back terraces and good wine, or stroll along the beach… in Costa del Sol, life is simple and oh-so sweet.

Your “base camp” will be in Fuengirola, a seaside town surrounded by eight kilometres of cliffs and beaches opening up to the Mediterranean. In the 1950s, Fuengirola was nothing more than a tiny fishing harbour with a castle in ruins as a backdrop. Today, Fuengirola has matured into a small town equipped with absolutely everything you need.

Somewhere between all of your local discoveries, why not set off on an excursion? Gendrontours offers a great variety of options I will be thrilled to (re)discover with you!  For those of you who loved the experience so much (and there are quite a few!), this year’s edition offers several interesting variations. In the Fall of 2016, combine your stay with a transatlantic cruise from Barcelona. I’ll be there to enjoy it with you! And, for the Winter 2017 season, discover our Costa del sol – Andalusia and Costa del Sol – Barcelona combos.
