Join us for a relaxing Demuths foodie holiday in the beautiful Alpujarras in Southern Spain. This holiday will be a mix of eating delicious vegetarian food, gentle walking, cooking outside and watching the sun set with a glass of local rose.
We will be staying with David and Emma at their fabulous hotel Las Chimeneas in the traditional unspoilt white village Mairena perched on the side of the mountains with beautiful views to the sea and snow-capped mountains behind.
David and Emma have lived in Mairena for 18 years and they are extremely knowledgeable hosts and guides through the history, traditions, fauna, food and people of the area. They have their own finca where they grow organic vegetables, olives and fruit trees.
We will cook paella on an open fire, learn how to make goats cheese, pick wild herbs for salads, visit the village olive oil press, picnic in the hills, eat tapas in the local town Ugijar and treat ourselves to hot chocolate with churros.
The highlight will be a visit to Chris and Anna Stewarts farm El Valero for lunch, the famous setting for his best-selling book ‘Driving over lemons’.
This holiday differs from our Italian cookery holiday with a dedicated kitchen and hands on teaching, this is a foody Spanish experience with cookery demos, from their experienced local Spanish cooks Sole and Conche.
