Spain

While Spain very much lives up to its stereotypical caricature as a country of passionate people, enthusiastic foodies and colourful life tapestries, it’s also a country more incredibly diverse, soulful and intriguing than you can ever imagine. From its history and food to its landscape and culture, you’ll be surprised again and again by what’s on offer here. Living very much in the present, and with a joie de vivre that’s infectious, this is undoubtedly an incredible destination for a luxury holiday that will stay in your memory for all the right reasons.


With festivals and fiestas almost every other day and more UNESCO World Heritage sites than you can shake a stick at (including six whole cities) there is certainly an element to Spain that will have culture vultures champing at the bit. Families, art lovers and history buffs will relish the incredible array of attractions, museums and galleries on offer throughout the area, from its Roman relics and Muslim palaces to Baroque cathedrals and Modernist art displays. The country is practically a treasure chest of marvels! Madrid boasts works of Picasso, Dalí and Goya while Barcelona has been noted for its unique architecture and layout.


But it’s not all big cities and ancient remains, the natural landscape of Spain is also something awe-inspiring. The land, like its people, is intense, vibrant and colourful with sapphire lakes, emerald mountains and rolling fields of gold. Outdoor enthusiasts will go wild for the mountain ranges of Sierra Nevada and the Pyrenees, the coves of the Atlantic northwest and the charming villages and forests of Old Spain.


One thing you can absolutely rely on during any visit to Spain is its unquestionable culinary prowess. A homing beacon to foodies the world over, there’s nothing quite like this country’s hedonistic approach to superb food, fine wine and good company. From tasty tapas in a local bar to celebrity-chef meals in Michelin-starred eateries, you’ll find a patriotic pride in food across the board.
