LOSE YOUR HEART IN ANDALUSIA

The most southern point in Spain, famous for its beautiful cities, rich history and rough coast line, has a motto that moves everything: “a passion for life”. You can taste it in the delicious tapas, you can hear it in the feisty music. This country of olives, oranges, white mountain peaks, and castanets. Andalusia is a bridge between Africa and Europe where you just have to have visited.

Andalusia has breathtaking cities with a rich history. Anyone who has not seen them has missed a miracle of human ingenuity. There is not only the majestic and stunning Sevilla, Granada or Malaga, but also the many small white villages with winding little streets and cozy little squares that take you from one surprise to the other. Cadiz, Almeria or Mijas, it is not a long search to find something beautiful.

Its abundant culture has also stolen our hearts. You really should see the Flamenco in its full glory, and the horses with a temperament that this area is famous for. Riding these fiery animals through the wild untouched nature is unforgettable. And after, you can end the day with some delicious traditional Pata Negra ham and some local wine, and you will be on top of the world.

Whenever you say Spain, you say sun, sea, and beaches. Andalusia offers its rough coasts with plenty of possibilities, since every strip of coast has its own personality and options. You can find your perfect mix of breath-taking and untouched beaches, and fun activities. Going whale-spotting near Gibraltar, surfing in the relaxed Tarifa, or simply enjoying the beauty of Marbella…

Anything is possible!

AGRITURISMO IN ITALIË: PROEF HET PLATTELANDSLEVEN

Leer het échte Italië kennen

Brrrrr. Het zijn koude, winterse dagen. Dit is dan ook hét geknipte moment voor de gevreesde ‘grote kuis’. Gelukkig brengt deze lastige klus ook leuke momenten naar boven. Een dagboek met de fijne herinneringen aan die agriturismo vakantie in Italië bijvoorbeeld?

Wat is een agriturismo? De hoeve, het landschap, de gastvrijheid

10 augustus 2016 - Agriturismo, agrotoerisme, of gewoon landschapstoerisme? Ik had al veel over dit concept gehoord, maar één ding is zeker: je moet het beleven om het te begrijpen. Vandaag arriveerden we met ons gezinnetje op een prachtige domein in het Italiaanse Toscane. De sympathieke eigenaar Luciano verwelkomde ons met open armen. Wat een schitterende locatie! Vanop het terras van onze woning hebben we een uitgestrekt uitzicht op de wijngaarden, de olijfbomen en de Zuiderse heuvels. Terwijl de kinderen in de gerestaureerde plattelandswoning slaap inhaalden, hadden wij een portie ontspanning verdiend. Een duik in het zwembad met de ondergaande zon op de achtergrond, gevolgd door een bezoekje aan de wellness: HEERLIJK! En nu ook snel onder de lakens kruipen, want morgen worden we ondergedompeld in het authentieke Italiaanse landschapsleven.

Zwemmen, proeven, ontdekken? Blije kinderen: check ;)

11 augustus 2016 - Een ontbijt met lokaal gemaakte kaas, confituur en olijfolie. Hoe kan je een dag op de vakantieboerderij nog beter starten dan met een stukje Pecorino, Parmagiano Reggiano of Provolone? Deze vitamientjes konden we al snel gebruiken. We werden samen met de kinderen uitgenodigd voor een wandeling doorheen de idyllische wijngaarden. Nadat we onze handen uit de mouwen staken bij de druivenpluk werden we verder ondergedompeld in de wereld van wijn brouwen en kaas maken. Echt een unieke belevenis! Bij de lunch proefden we van deze oogst, in de vorm van een glaasje wijn of druivensap. Niemand kan neen zeggen tegen een lekkere Brunello, Barbaresco, Bardolino of Spumante uit de Chianti streek! De namiddag op de agriturismo stond in het teken van rust en ontspanning. Terwijl de kinderen zich uitleefden met een plons in het zwembad praatten we bij met Luciano en zijn vrouw Anna. Ze gaven ons enkele erg nuttige tips om de omgeving en de nabije steden te ontdekken. Dit soort suggesties vind je niet in toeristische boekjes terug!

Italië, bron van natuur én cultuur

12 augustus 2016 - De tips van de locals spraken ons zo aan dat we beslisten om er vandaag op uit te trekken. We huurden op de agriturismo een fiets om eerst de nabije omgeving te ontdekken. De vrije Italiaanse< natuur is ongelooflijk! En ook de kinderen klagen niet, ze vinden het zalig om buiten te ravotten. Morgen bezoeken we met de auto één van de indrukwekkende Toscaanse< cultuursteden in de buurt. Sienna? Of misschien Firenze? Het belooft sowieso weer een verrassende dag te worden ☺

Daar zit je dan, met je neus in je reisdagboek en met een glimlach op je gezicht. Je zou zo terug naar Italië willen! En waarom ook niet? Trek deze zomer naar een agriturismo in Umbria, en breng een bezoekje aan de steden Perugia, Arezzo en Assisi. Of zijn de Marken meer je ding? De prachtsteden Macerata, Civitanova Marche, en Ascoli Piceno liggen maar een boogscheut ver!

Waar wacht je nog op? De kinderen staan vast weer te springen! Boek een agriturismo via www.cap.be

IBIZA, A SUN-SOAKED TRIP FILLED WITH FUN, CULTURE AND NATURE

Wow! We're Going To Ibiza!

“Mom, I just booked a trip to Ibiza with a couple of friends.”

“What, a whole week of partying?“

“Mom, no, Ibiza has so much mo…"

“No no no, this is not going to happen!”

Ibiza is…

It is probably quite easy to imagine this scenario… but for once, mom’s worries are unnecessary. Ibiza is a stunning island in the Mediterranean, and has a lot more to offer than the famous bustling night-life.

…nature

This sun-soaked destination in the Spanish Baleares is a sliver of paradise, and only a short two-hour flight away from Brussels. The lavish nature consists partly of relaxing and remote bays with rough, steep cliffs, and partly of endless, romantic beaches that are famous for their stunning sunsets that are said to be among the most beautiful in the world. Along the 210 kilometres of coast, you can enjoy the intense views of the turquoise ocean, for example in the lovely Sant Antoni de Portmany.

…adventure

A day on the white stretches of beach is the perfect relaxation for everyone, even families. But are the children bored with the sand between their toes? There are plenty of fun to dos for children: anything from an incredible water park, to informative excursions on the magical underwater world, and boat trips to beaches that seem to have appeared from fairy tales.

…pure

While the kids are having fun, you can sip a delicious cocktail and have a taste of a plate of refined tapas. These delicacies are served in beach bars, or in the inner city with its idyllic winding streets. Enjoy a nice evening in the authentic Santa Gertrudis, the relaxing San Juan, or the traditional San Carlos. Or take your pick from the more than 1200 restaurants with cute terraces, and experience the unique, southern flavours.

…culture

Had your fill of the local specialties? Go take a look in Santa Inés, Jesús, or San Augustin. Visit the many monuments, enjoy the stunning view from atop the tall city walls, stroll the little shopping streets, or get a feel of the flower power mentality on the famous hippy markets of the island. Clothes, accessories, or some authentic hand-made souvenirs, you will surely find something to your liking.

…the últimate relaxation

Entertainment, art, parties, walks, high cuisine… lavish Ibiza has a lot to offer. Everything is possible, and there are no obligations. Hippies and fancy ladies are virtually walking hand in hand. ‘Being yourself’ and ‘no judging of other people’ are the two first rules of the island. This results in a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere where everyone can have the perfect holiday on this dreamy destination.

Excited to explore this magical island for yourself? Cap now offers some of the most beautiful holiday homes of Ibiza. Check it out!

“Mom, I just booked a trip to Ibiza with a couple of friends.”

“Really? How great! Your dad and I also just booked our tickets, maybe we are on the same flight!“

“Ew mom, no…”

Marrakesh

Marrakesh, a city in the south offering an exotic atmosphere and a unique sense of hospitality.

Morocco is well-known for many reasons: its magnificent desert, its permanent sunshine, its wonderful cuisine, and of course its exceptional “Red City”, better known as Marrakesh.

Let us discover this Moroccan medina. It is well worth discovering, despite the political tensions hanging over the Arab countries. Don’t let negative ideas clutter your mind, let’s set out with a positive attitude.

What a revelation!

As soon as I set foot on Moroccan soil, my first conclusion was clear: all this commotion is overrated. I felt welcome and free to do as I pleased. The locals have great respect for tourists and allowed me to do my thing 100%. They just went on with their lives; cheerful, relaxed and even noisy at times!

As I discovered the city, I was surprised by many attractions. Local markets the spill over the small streets, where scooters zoom across every so often, whereas the donkey and cart if more the rule than the exception.

I admired the lovely red colour at the old harbour, Bab Agnaou, and took a look at the impressive Ben Youssef Mosque, as well as the Koutoubia Mosque. I heard the villagers calling out to the market sellers and watched as the various orange growers, monkey owners, and others gathered at the Jemaa El-Fnaa square, much to my fascination.

I was enthralled by the liveliness of the souks. This is a sight for sore eyes, juggling colours and smells which I will never forget. Many Berber products on offer drew my attention. Berber carpets, Berber music, Berber food – a delightful culture!

After a few hours you will enjoy the thought of relaxing, with a cup of mint tea and a panoramic view from the roof-terrace of a local riad. This is exactly what you will need! You can unwind and enjoy the Moroccan hospitality. A stroll in a local garden, such as the Jardin Majorelle or the Menara Gardens will guarantee you the peace and quiet you have been seeking.

Before heading back, I chose a delightful restaurant to end my day. The variety of delicious specialties make it a difficult choice. Tajine, harira, couscous,… absolutely delicious dishes.

It is fantastic to feel this welcome in a foreign country which has a totally difference cultures. Thanks to the open friendliness of its people, you are sure to start the day with a smile! This unique charm has won me over and I will definitely go back there some day soon!

To make your trip complete, a stay at our holiday home “Dar Jenna” is an absolute must. A day in fabulous Marrakesh and then coming home to this magical luxury villa turns your holiday into heaven on earth!

Groetjes, Camille
