It would be brilliant if you can give us any recommendations as all I can find online are professional things! Thanks, Georgina"

* Sierra Nevada

Our family had a fabulous week of skiing on the slopes of Sierra Nevada, just a 2 hour drive from Marbella. This is a unique place where visitors can have sun and snow at the same time.
