SpainAway’s principal area of operation is in Nerja itself, where it is able to offer accommodation ranging from one bedroom apartments through to 4 or 5-bedroom villas with pools, in addition to a wide range of hotels.
Here we specifically recommend the ‘El Capistrano Village’ development located on the outskirts of the town. Originally constructed as one of Spain’s first time-share developments, based around a rural ‘mountain village’ theme, it has now become one of Spain’s most iconic holiday destinations, whilst still shared with many full-time residents from a wide variety of nationalities.
A sister website – Rural Granada Villas – offers accommodation in the Valle de Lecrin and Las Alpujarras, located to the south of the city of Granada, where can be found unspoilt Andalucian villages offering the perfect holiday retreat, in the shape of villas with private pools with panoramic views, set in an unbeatable location. In addition the vibrant city of Granada itself, with its world-famous Alhambra Palace, is within easy reach, as is the very pleasant 'Costa Tropical' section of the coast.
Incidentally, The Away Company's other destination country is Africa, where we are able to offer a large variety of safari-based holidays, incorporating game viewing by vehicle together with exciting walking safaris. Countries covered include Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
This unusual combination – Spain and Africa - arises simply from these being the two countries in which the Away Company's innovative founder, Dr Henry Southworth, spends much of his time travelling. Henry's belief is that you should only try to sell an experience that you have a deep personal knowledge of, and a passion for.
