OVERVIEW

Spain is a country situated on the picturesque Iberian Peninsula, bordering Portugal. A nation famous for its fiestas, flamenco and delicious food, Spain has been a highly popular holiday destination for Brits for many years. With its breath-taking landscapes, golden beaches, historic architecture and vibrant culture, there is so much to love about visiting here, not to mention a plethora of attractions and activities to experience, whether you are into adventure, history or just enjoying a relaxing sojourn by the sea.

Unsurprisingly Spain offers a wide variety of accommodation options for visitors, ranging from cheap and cheerful hotels to luxury resorts, so wherever you decide to go in the country you are sure to find accommodation to suit your budget.

Visitors who are interested in architecture or in the country’s fascinating heritage are sure to want to visit some of its iconic attractions, such as the majestic La Sagrada Família in Barcelona, or the breath-taking Alhambra, with its lush gardens and 14th century buildings painstakingly restored. You may also want to journey to Córdoba to take in the centuries-old magnificence of the Mezquita mosque-cathedral, guaranteed to enthral.

If you are more interested in the country’s fantastic beaches, head to the Costa Brava, with its delightful seaside towns and stunning scenery, or relax on the sand on one of the pristine beaches situated along the Galician coast. Then, of course, there’s always Menorca, Tenerife, Mallorca or Ibiza, famous for its nightclubs.

For a charming city break why not book a hotel in Seville, the Andalusian capital, with its fascinating historic sites, buzzing nightlife and lively Sunday markets. During your stay try a tapas tour of the city, try flamenco lessons or go skiing on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada.
