“Oh, this year we’re off to sunny Spain…”
If you’re of a certain vintage, you’ll not only know the rest of the lyrics to Y Viva España, you’ll also know that sandy Spanish beaches have been a mainstay of British holidaymakers for decades.
But what you may not know is that there’s much more to Spain than sangria and straw donkeys!
For one thing, Spain is one of the world’s 50 largest countries, which means that whatever your holiday pleasure, you’re bound to find it here.
Look to the Iberian Peninsula for that classic mix of coast and climate: to Andalucia for culture, tradition, and fiery fiestas! Head to the north of Spain, and the captivating Basque region, for the very best Rioja, while for sherry and gazpacho you can’t beat Cadiz or Malaga (seriously).
Meanwhile, unsurpassed city breaks can be spent in the likes of Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia… but if all else fails, and it’s that traditional Spanish beach holiday you crave, then you won’t go wrong with a visit to Palma or Ibiza.
However you decide to discover Spain’s many delights, there’s a fabulous Host Unusual retreat waiting for you.
