Best for beaches:
There’s only one choice when it comes to the warm, sandy beaches of Spain and that’s the Costa Del Sol, in Andalusia. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a welcoming family atmosphere or a glitzy beach vibe, this stretch of coastline, in the south is just what you need and the scorching summer sun is perfect for revitalising sun starved skin.
You can’t get any closer to the beach of ‘La Cala de Mijas,’ a stretch of coastline unspoiled by mass tourism. It's hard not to fall in love with the charm of this old fishing pueblo. The property is a ground floor apartment that looks out onto the palm fringed beauty of the sea. Not only that but it’s close to local amenities such as restaurants and shops, plus you can relax by the shared swimming pool and peaceful gardens.
Off the beaten track
There’s nothing worse when you want to escape the over-crowded world back home, only to turn up on holiday and find screeching children and constantly crowded beaches. However, for a holiday away from throngs of people, why not try Asturias. It’s a peaceful haven of culture in the North West of Spain, known for its rugged and mountainous landscape and medieval architecture.
This holiday house in Debodes lies at the foot of the Picos de Europa, a mountain range 20 km inland from the North West coast of Spain. The house is located quite close to the village of Meré where you will find, among other things, a supermarket and a bar. The house is centrally located in a rural, hilly area that is wonderfully tranquil. Therefore, you can enjoy long beautiful walks in the surrounding area.
Best for city breaks
If you are someone who prefers to be in the centre of the action and opt for the hustle and bustle of a city break, then Barcelona is the place for you. It offers the savvy and curious traveller so much to see, from the curious architecture of Park Guell to the Picasso museum and everything in between.
