Predictions of a wetter-than-average summer in the UK this year have prompted a Cheltenham firm to offer holidays planned to keep the whole family happy – in the desert!
The Almanzora Group is offering week-long holidays at Desert Springs, Europe’s only international award-winning luxury family resort and championship desert golf course in the Almanzora region of Almeria in south-east Spain.
Easy to reach by two-and-a-half hour scheduled and charter flights linking many UK airports with those at Almeria, Murcia and Alicante, the Almanzora region enjoys a desert microclimate – unique in Europe – with an annual average of more than nine hours of daily sunshine and maximum daily temperatures of between 16°C (60°F) and 30°C (86°F) throughout the year.
In addition to accommodation in modern self-catering apartments around a courtyard and pool, or an Andalusian patio with orange trees, family packages embrace a variety of activities designed to appeal to every member of the family.
Typically they include use of the Crocodile Club at the heart of the resort with pools, equipped sand play areas and a games room, as well as a jacuzzi, sun lawns and a pool bar.
While experienced golfers enjoy the 72 par 18-hole USGA Indiana golf course at Desert Springs – it was designed by former Great Britain and Ireland Golf Team Captain Peter McEvoy, inspired by the desert courses of Arizona and California – one member of the family can take a lesson with the resort’s resident golf professional.
Massages at the Day Spa, a mountain bike trail ride with a picnic provided, tennis lessons, or use of sports and fitness facilities ranging from a gymnasium, trim trail and jogging tracks to paddle tennis and beach volley ball are among other options.
The quality and value of family holidays at Desert Springs have been endorsed by Sir Ian Botham. The former England Test cricketer, who has a home in the resort, said:
“I love the peaceful atmosphere and the desert microclimate we enjoy in this corner of Spain. Desert Springs is our perfect family retreat, offering an amazing variety of sports and leisure facilities so there is always something for all the family to enjoy.”
For a family of four, the cost of a self-catering week at Desert Springs starts at £885 rising to £1,475 in the August peak season. Also available are three-day family breaks.
