Luxury Holidays in Spain

One of Europe's most loved holiday destinations and you can see why with year round sunshine, beautiful beaches and incredible views.

Charm of the Mediterranean & Vibrant Culture

Spain has more than a few surprises hidden amongst its mainland and islands… sweeping golden sands, majestic mountains and swoon-worthy whitewashed villages are enough to make it a favourite amongst travellers. A week of Sun, Sea, Sangria and Siestas is hard to beat!

It’s hard to believe that in just a few hours from the UK you will find this charming and vibrant country. From laid-back living to a high-class lifestyle, rustic towns and villages to impressive cities, mountainous walks to bronzed-beaches are what make Spain a dynamic and diverse holiday destination.

There is never really a bad time to visit Spain and it’s islands, with year-round sunshine and temperatures rarely falling below 20 degrees in the Winter and highs of 35 degrees in the Summer.

Mainland Spain is home to National Parks, intriguing architecture, fascinating history, Blue Flag beaches, and a lively nightlife. All which can be found along one coveted coastline.

You’ll enjoy a kaleidoscope of colour and tradition from the magical home of fiesta and flamenco. Spend a balmy summer’s evening watching energetic and effervescent street entertainers as they perform in town squares and cobbled streets.  You will also find a wealth of watersports, family-friendly activities and World-class golf courses peppered throughout the Costas.

Velvety hills, majestic mountain ranges, blissful beaches and picturesque national parks – not to mention the only European desert truly is a nature lovers’ paradise.

Why visit Spain?

Cosmopolitan Cities and Vibrant Villages – If photography’s your thing, Spain will be your paradise. You will be spoilt for choice with Madrid and Barcelona being world-renowned for their arts and culture scene, exquisite cuisine and impressive shopping and Seville offering a rich cultural experience, from flamenco dancing to architectural heritage. Slow things down a bit and head to the whitewashed village and towns that dot the hillsides in Andalucía. Think cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and pretty little churches, these vibrant villages ooze charm and history.

Andalucia-Beach

Best Beaches – Spanish beaches are just one of the many reasons why so many people choose Spain as their holiday destination. Where ever you go in Spain you will not be far from a stunning beach. Notably Spain has the most blue flag beaches in the world…  One of our favourite beaches is in the region of Andalucia, Costa de la Luz. A sun worshipper’s paradise and a popular choice amongst travellers. 

Spanish-Food

Food & Drink – Think Tortilla espanola (Spanish omelette), Croquetas de jamon (ham croquettes) and the infamous potatas bravas. Diverse dishes with flavours of the Mediterranean and Arabic influence. Olive Oil is a firm favourite of the Spanish together with Paella being amongst the most popular dishes. Spanish cuisine is known for being delicious, healthy and full of flavour.

Popular Spanish Festivals

February

Carnival – A country wide celebration that takes place just before Lent and Easter.  Carnival has any similarities to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, with wild costumes, loud music and extravagant parades and street parties.

Las-Fallas

March

Las Fallas – If visting Valencia in March you will not want to miss this wild festival. Celebrated over 5 days with massive paper mache and cardboard sculptures all hand-made by local residents, being paraded through the streets and then burned on a huge bonfire.

April

Feria de Sevilla – A fantastically colourful week in Seville, where Andalusia’s finest come out to play.  With many people travelling from all over the world to join in with the fun and festivities of this spectacular festival. From the flamenco to the sherry to the horses and more, the party vibe carries on long after the sun goes down.

May

Haro Wine Festival – You’ll find the small town Haro in La Rioja province. Famous for it’s red wine and one of the greatest festival in all of Spain.  Over two days the  town kicks off summer with lots of wine-related activities, one being the wine fight.  With plenty of drinking, music you will undoubtedly have lots of fun.

July

San Fermin – One of the most famous of festivals of all and probably one of the most controversial is San Fermin, the running of the bulls in Pamplona. A week long festival, where at 8am every morning, a huge number of people take to the streets and run… with seven rather large and eager bulls chasing them.  The aim is to touch as many of the bulls as possible.  Each day finishes with famous Spanish bullfights.

Tomato-Festival

August

La Tomatina – The most fun festival of them all, held every year in August.  It’s origins are a little uncertain but it is thought that it began during a parade when people began starting throwing tomatoes at each other. So now, for  an entire day, thousands of people come together and hurl tomatoes at one another… food fight anyone?

September

San Mateo Festival – Another one for lovers of wine. Celebrated every year in Logrono when the grapes are ready to harvest.  Throughout people gather to press the grapes with their feet and join in the festivities witha parade, music events and sports.  Enjoy the last remnants of Summer by sampling the La Rioja specialities.
