1. "Turismo Sierra Essence S.L." has been operating in Sierra Nevada for well over 10 years as a Spanish registered intermediary agency for accommodation and other holiday related services. We are not ABTA registered because we are too small. As an intermediary agent we hold a Public Liability insurance to cover our clients in the event of an incident caused by us. Over the years we have retained many many clients who return to Sierra Nevada year after year and always book all their services through us.
Apart from flights, we arrange everything you need for your holiday, making it a quick and easy process to organize your trip.
Our contracts with hoteliers and agents are on a prepayment basis, meaning that our clients´ funds essentially come via us and straight to the accommodation provider. Our cancellation terms for each particular accommodation is that of the accommodation option itself. We are able to offer preferential rates because we are a small company with fewer overheads than the big agencies.
Additionally, by booking with us you gain the services of our Rep in the resort as well as our assistance with all parts of your holiday, from liaising with the accommodation povider to ensure that all your requirements are met, to providing inside knowledge of the best restaurants. Also, it´s still the case that English is not widely spoken in the resort, so another advantage is that a member of our team can always be called upon for any translation requirements.
2. Our Ski School (British Ski Center) is dedicated to providing quality ski/snowboard tuition in Sierra Nevada. Our team comprises native English instructors to perfectly cater for our English speaking visitors. All instructors are aptly qualified, contracted and insured according to Spanish law. British Ski Center started officially in 2002 and has seen significant growth and popularity over the years due not only to the high quality of instruction provided but also our attention to our clients in ensuring their holiday goes as smoothly as possible.
Both businesses are essentially web based via three principal, inter-related websites: www.sierraessence.com, www.sierranevada.co.uk & www.britishskicenter.co.uk. We have no public office out of the ski season period, being home-based, but during the winter months we hold a physical presence in Sierra Nevada and operate out of the Intersport Rio Sport equipment hire shop in the Plaza de Andalucia, (Edificio Montebajo).
Both businesses are registered Spanish limited companies as follows:
1. Turismo Sierra Essence S.L. (ESB19650746)
2. Sierra Essence Ski & Mountain Center 2006 S.L. (ESB18803262).
