Spain is one of the world’s greatest holiday destinations, and it is easy to see why. There are infinite reasons to pack up your bags and jet off to Spain. Passionate, elegant, and devoted to celebrating the joys of life, a holiday in Spain is to experience one of the world’s most charming, beautiful, and staggeringly diverse countries. With its spellbinding natural beauty, buzzing cities, magnificent architecture, vibrant culture, folkloristic traditions, fabulous food and friendly people, the country has so much to offer.
Masterfully balancing cool sophistication and hip energy with a laid-back atmosphere, Spain is deeply rooted in its history and heritage, yet it is the epitome of modernity and progression. Here, grand historical monuments coexist alongside cutting-edge, modern architectural creations, and it becomes evident Spain’s future will be every bit as exciting as its past. Spain is so culturally and geographically diverse that it is poised to delight, seduce and surprise.
From inspirational architecture in Barcelona; splendid museums in Madrid; mythical Andalusia with dazzling white villages and fascinating history, to the Basque Country for gourmet cuisine; the Canary Islands for striking volcanic sandy beaches; and Mallorca for glitz, glamour and the freshest seafood.
The great variety of landscapes in Spain is truly breathtaking. The rolling green hills and wildly beautiful cliffs of Spain’s Atlantic-facing side are offset by the charming coves of the Mediterranean. Along the coast, there are delightful fishing villages, ancient towns and the pristine beaches of the Costa Brava. And everywhere you go, villages of timeless beauty perch on hilltops, huddle in valleys, and cling to coastal outcrops.
The vast and relatively unspoilt hinterland is one of the country’s jewels and spending at least part of your holiday in Spain outside the beaten track may turn out to be your best decision. Explore the pastoral beauty of the landscape punctuated by the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains, the sun-baked plains of Andalusia, walled medieval hilltop towns, imposing mountain ranges like the Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa, rivers and lakes, and an agricultural heritage that is still fundamentally tied to day‐to‐day life, rural Spain has it all.
Spain is known worldwide as the country of many fiestas and festivals. No matter how small, every village has their own, unique celebrations. A pleasure for the eye and the soul, these extravagant fiestas are colourful, authentic, vibrant and always great fun.
A continuous celebration of the sun, great food and a relaxed, unhurried lifestyle creates the perfect recipe for a villa holiday.
