Here’s what they have said

We spent a fabulous week with Anne exploring the food and drink of Andalusian Spain. We based ourselves in the beautiful hilltop town of Vejer de la Frontera, Anne's home. Cooking classes at her hilltop home, degustaciones of fresh tuna on the coast, Sherry tastings at bodegas, Arabic food luncheons, Tapa's tours and fabulous meals and entertainment all along the way.  We mixed sightseeing and food in Jerez, Cadiz, Gibraltar, Barbate, Malaga and Morroco. Anne arranged it all.  First class service in accommodations, instruction, transport, and guides. Most of all the great food and drink that only Spain can provide was the highlight that Anne served up for us with an ever present smile. Can't wait to visit again…

Why Vejer de la Frontera

It’s breathtakingly beautiful. Your first glimpse of the town is as a blinding flash of white on a hilltop against the bluest of blue skies. Up close it’s just as easy on the eye, too – a labyrinth of narrow, cobbled streets winding its way between quiet squares, churches and handsome historical buildings, it’s a photographer’s dream.
