About Us

  • Summer Enquiries for Winter 2017-18

    The vast majority of self-catering apartments don´t release their rates or accept bookings until November for the upcoming season. Many of the hotels do not release rates until the Autumn either. As such, there are just a few options we can give you now such as the two 4 star Melia hotels and the 3 star GHM Monachil. As we are "out of season" our response rate will be much slower as a result of this. From mid-June onwards, we intend to respond to any enquiries on a weekly basis. Most accommodation options nowadays offer a "flexible" tariff which allows future modifications and/or cancelations. We can generally compete very well with alternative options found elsewhere and so would urge you to consider this so that when more options open themselves up to us you may well be able to take advantage of a better deal later in the autumn.

Who Are We?

Sierra Essence and the British Ski Center is a Spanish limited company established in December of 2006 by Giles Birch & Jonathan Buzzard.

Our business focuses in two prime areas:



1. An Intermediary Booking Agency for Ski and Activity breaks/holidays whereby through our mediation with local businesses, agencies, hoteliers and other suppliers, we can arrange any or all of your package requirements (except flights). Sierra Essence is not a Travel Agency or Tour Operator and thereby is under the sole legal obligation of pertaining to a fully comprehensive Public Liability Insurance without any necessity of subscribing to ATOL bonds or similar.

2. Our Ski School (British Ski Center) is dedicated to the tuition of skiing and snowboarding alike in Sierra Nevada.

Both sides of the business are effectively web based via three prime websites: www.sierraessence.com, www.sierranevada.co.uk & www.britishskicenter.co.uk. As a "virtual" identity in this respect we have no physical office to speak of except during the winter months in Sierra Nevada, where the British Ski Center operates out of Intersport Rio Sport equipment hire shop in the Plaza de Andalucia. For the remainder of the year, our business operations are home based.

The company is registered under the name of: Sierra Essence Ski & Mountain Center 2006 S.L. with fiscal ID: ESB18803262.

Our company address is: C/Pico del Goteron 7, 18160 Güejar Sierra, Granada, Spain.
