Holiday overview

New at HF Holidays

A guided City Break with an HF Holidays’ leader is the ideal way to discover Seville. We’ll explore the cathedral, formerly a mosque, and enjoy the panoramic view of the Patio de los Naranjos from the bell tower. In Cordoba visits will include the Mezquita and the Jewish Quarter.

Holiday highlights:

  • Seville Cathedral, built on a grand scale on the site of the great mosque in the 12th century
  • Cordoba’s Mezquita − absorb hundreds of years of history and admire the astonishing architectural style
  • Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos − take some time to relax here in the impressively elaborate gardens
  • Reales Alcazares − exquisite Moorish-style palace with beautiful carvings, decorated courtyard and extensive gardens

Great reasons to book with us:

  • Great value: all prices include en-suite bed & breakfast accommodation in the centrally located Hotel Regina Eurostars
  • Knowledgeable leader: explore the cities of Seville and Cordoba on foot, using some local transport, with our friendly leader
  • Sociability: we pride ourselves on the sociable atmosphere of our holidays; explore together, relax together, and if you want, dine together in the evenings

Accommodation

Located close to the historic centre, the 3-star Hotel Eurostars Regina is decorated in typical Andalucian style and has 90 en-suite bedrooms.

Itinerary

Each day our experienced leader will lead you on a sightseeing walk of Seville or Cordoba, exploring the different areas of the city. Although you should expect to spend most of the day sightseeing by foot, we will use some local buses during the programme.  

Highlights of the sightseeing programme include:

  • Seville’s huge cathedral that dominates the centre of the old city. We’ll explore its gothic interior and visit the Giralda belltower, an inconic symbol of Seville
  • Cordoba’s remarkable Mezquita: huge and astonishing in its architectural style
  • Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, Cordoba’s Moorish fortress. The formidable battlements offer an excellent birds-eye view over the city but most impressive are the elaborate gardens
  • Reales Alcazares, in Seville, an exquisite Moorish style palace with beautiful carvings, richly decorated courtyards and extensive grounds.

Travel

With Flight’ holidays

For flight times and prices please see the Dates & Prices tab.

We offer flights from Gatwick to Seville. If you book a ‘with flight’ holiday with us, we automatically include transfers between the airport and the hotel. The coach transfer takes 20 minutes.

Independent travellers

All our overseas holidays can also be booked without a flight. This is ideal if you are travelling from overseas, or prefer to make your own arrangements from your local airport. If you choose this option the transfer to the hotel is not included.

Some City Break itineraries can involve sightseeing on your arrival day, depending on flight times. If you travel independently and arrive after the HF Holidays' flight, you may miss some of the first day's activities (see dates & prices tab for provisional flight times). If your flight arrival time coincides with that of the HF Holidays' flight you can join our hotel transfer at a cost of £11.00 (single). Transfers must be pre-booked. Please call 020 8732 1220. Please note that HF Holidays is not responsible for your onward travel if you fail to meet this transfer.

I have always found HF holidays very enjoyable. However this time I was disappointed by the administration. I had to contact HF when the money for the holiday had not been taken from my bank account 10 days after it was due to be taken out. I rang HF when I had not received information about the holiday just before departure. I gather that there were problems with the use of UK Mail.

Overall I enjoyed the trip, but I did feel it was adversely affected by so many things being closed over the Christmas holiday.
Thank you for your holiday feedback. I'm glad that overall you enjoyed the trip. We will use your comments when reviewing our festive offering to Seville & Cordoba.

Paper work and phone calls well managed. Pleasant staff on the telephone.

Product review:

This was the most appalling holiday I've ever had. The hotel had no bar or coffee shop, the single rooms were tiny. Most of the places, park, resturants, bars etc were closed. We couldn't get anything to eat on Christmas Eve. I could go on. It was surreal.
Thank you for your feedback and also your letter. I’m sorry the holiday did not meet your expectations. We will consider your comments when making our final decisions regarding our 2014 festive offering to Seville & Cordoba.

Thanks, Sarah Davis
