With so much to offer, Spain is perfect for relaxing family holidays, stylish getaways in the likes of Ibiza, Majorca or Menorca or even winter sun in the Canary Islands to escape the cold Northern European winters.
Spain's main villa holiday destinations are:
The Canary Islands are located in the wild Atlantic Ocean close to the coast of Africa and are famous for their reliable year-round sunshine, miles of beaches, unique volcanic landscape and convenient proximity to the UK. Tenerife is the biggest of the islands, where you can climb one of the world's largest volcanoes and partake in the world-famous Carnival. Lanzarote is low-key and well-maintained and becoming increasing stylish; here you can journey by camel through Timanfaya National Park's incredible lunar landscape. For golfing holidays, and for excellent shopping, visit Gran Canaria, offering both family-friendly resorts and more lively party destinations. Fuerteventura's white sand beaches benefit from almost constant cooling winds, which also make it an excellent destination for water sports. The islands provide a rugged backdrop to some of Spain's most stunning villas.
The Balearic Islands are located in the middle of the Mediterranean and are renowned for their stylish Spanish villas and lively resorts. Here you can find some of Spain's most stunning scenery and beautiful beaches. Menorca is known for its large uncrowded coast and relaxed atmosphere, and whilst small, offers plenty of holiday activities for all ages. Majorca is the largest of the islands whilst Palma, its capital, is one of Spain's most stylish and historic cities. It has a wide variety of beaches from secluded pebble bays in the north to wide sandy beaches in the south. The lush, mountainous interior of the island is worth exploring too, especially if you are looking for an active cycling or walking holiday. Ibiza is famous as Spain's party capital, and perfect for those who want a lively nightlife scene and chic boutiques. But renting a villa away from the main town opens up a world of charming Spanish villages, sandy coves and pine-clad hillsides.
The Costa del Sol is scattered with traditional Spanish villas and the coastline of the southern province of Andalusia enjoys fabulous weather. This is one of Spain's most popular beach holiday destinations, with a variety of coastal resorts offering everything from the classic bucket and spade holiday to secluded romantic coves. Move inland and you'll find unspoiled terrain, mountain villages and craggy ravines. Marbella is a good choice for a lively, upmarket Spanish villa or apartment with its old town, luxury yachts in upscale Puerto Banus, marina and sandy beaches. The beach-side city of Malaga is stylish and energetic while still retaining its history and culture. Family-friendly resorts such as Benalmadena and Estepona are full of Andalucian charm, with well looked after beaches and lovely marinas. To escape the crowds try pretty hilltop villages such as Mijas with its views over the sea to North Africa or the white washed village of Competa.
The Costa Brava in Catalonia is a stretch of coast in the northeast of Spain, winding along the Mediterranean from the border with France at the foothills of the Pyrenees towards the fascinating city of Barcelona. It's home to some of Spain's more upmarket villas and apartments with some a natural rugged coastline. For a relaxing beach holiday try Blanes and Lloret de Mar. If you want to holiday with the well-off Spaniards then you might want to rent an apartment in the picturesque fishing resort of Palafrugell. Many of the villages, such as Pals and Begur are charming with narrow cobbled streets, pavement cafes, sleepy plazas and traditional markets.
Alicante is a mountainous province of eastern Spain on the Mediterranean Sea and its "White Coast" is known for miles of beaches, golf courses and family-friendly cultural and entertainment activities. If you are looking for a remote, undiscovered side of Spain then try renting a villa in an unspoilt town like Novelda or Monovar. However if you are looking for excellent beaches, sunshine and a wide range of amusements for all ages then the coast could be your perfect holiday destination. Benidorm is one of Spain's best known of the resorts with plenty of villas and apartments to choose from. Its long beach and proximity to theme parks is great for families and for keeping everyone entertained. But there are plenty of other beach resorts to choose from such as the delightful port town of Javea, upmarket Moraira and traditional Denia. Alicante town itself is charming with its hilltop castle, smart shops and authentic Spanish appeal.
