About Us

This website is brought to you by SpainAway, a major constituent of the independent UK-based travel company – The Away Company.

SpainAway specialises in providing top-class visitor accommodation, principally in and around Nerja and Granada.

Particular emphasis is placed on enabling activity-based holidays, involving golf, walking, and so on, in addition to great relaxation..

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. We specifically recommend the ‘El Capistrano Village’ development 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 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 with its world-famous Alhambra Palace, and the unspoilt beaches of the Costa Tropical, are all within easy reach. Further holiday accommodation is offered in the western reaches of the Costa del Sol, in the resort of Casares del Sol, close to Marbella, Estepona and Gibraltar.

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 and 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.
