Costa del Sol is a unique and cosmopolitan world that will fascinate your senses and excite your emotions. Sun and beaches on the shores of the Mediterranean, first-class golf courses on the Costa del Golf, rich culture, fine gastronomy - all of this is just a small part of what this place has to offer. Costa del Sol is a land of contrasts - from cities full of life with the unique historical past and grand architecture, to sleepy little villages and crumbling cortijos where goats graze and campesinos toil in the fields.

The magnificent Sierra Nevada and other snow-capped mountains tower over verdant valleys. Rivers tumble through gorges and snake across the landscape creating fertile plains, but there are also barren sierras and parched, desolated lands. And, you cannot miss the extraordinary climate with 321 days of sunshine in a year. Spain is the land of fiestas. In every single city, town and village, there is a festival of some kind. In all of Andalusia, there are bullfighting, flamenco, music, and wine festivals whilst in small towns you'll come across all kinds of strange festivals.

  • Review by a traveler from United States

    "I had the pleasure of booking private chefs for my villa in Marbella with Cooking Holiday Spain. Chef Rifigio was professional and accommodating, as we exchanged many emails before the trip. His staff was talented and delightful, and the food was excellent!! We were so fortunate to have breakfasts and dinners for three different days - the food menus to choose from were amazing. I would definitely call upon this wonderful company again should I return to Spain and need their services."

  • Review by a traveler from London
    9 out of 10

    "8 adults in a villa 20 mins outside of Marbs and rather than going out every night thought it would be fun to get a chef in if possible and not too expensive. After an initial inquiry, Sergio was very prompt, clear and helpful in his responses and with his help we put together a fab Spanish menu for us all with Sangria, lots of tapas, an amazing Paella and dessert, all cooked in our kitchen! Certainly no shortage of food, all delicious and excellent service by Fabio as well. Table was cleared away and kitchen left spotless which was the perfect end to the evening! So nice to not have to worry about a thing, eat great food and drink wine with friends. Thanks team!"

    "The cooking class was a great fun and Sergio was excellent. Make sure in your cooking class you get him to prepare his famous pasta with fresh clams and pesto sauce and the mixture of tapas. I have tried to do them at home, and I have become very popular among all my friends and family. Thank you for the great tips you gave us during the class. We had a fantastic time."

  • Review by George and Carolina from Ireland

    "My husband and I were very lucky to find Sergios Mediterranean cooking class on the web. I read positive reviews about his cooking skills and decided to give it a try. The food we prepared was simple but very tasty. He made it look extremely easy to prepare all those dishes. George, my husband doesnt stop asking me to make the selection of tapas and the chocolate and almond tart!"

  • Review by Alexis and John from United Kingdom

    "What can we say? Professional, personal, creative, and very attentive. Alexis and I are both very good amateur foodies; we were wondering if we would learn anything new. From your tour of the market (a story on its own) to your recipe selection - everything was excellent, fun, and challenging."
