Spain is home to famous architecture, culture, beaches and glorious sunshine. The beautiful scenery and endless amounts of sun, sea and sand make Spain one of the world’s most loved destinations for tourists around the world.
Spain holidays offer something for everybody from famous attractions, sights, adventure and festivals to captivating cultural occasions. The 700-year-old legacy of the Moors is remembered in Spain with the historic Santa Barbara Castle that attracts tourists each year, as well as the Alhambra Palace in Granada.
From culture to all things fun, Spain hosts world-class festivals such as Benicassim that draws in music fanatics from around the world due to its selection of famous and talented acts from all over the globe.
Perhaps the two most significant elements of Spain that characterise the country is the presence of flamenco dancing and bull fighting. Tourists can delight in the vibrant dance of flamenco with various performances displayed throughout popular restaurants in touristic locations – tourists can even put their rhythm to the test and participate in the show.
Europe has plenty to offer and whilst Portugal provides the much-loved combination of sun, sea and sand it is also a hotspot for lovers of ancient history. The country is steeped in history, famous architecture and fascinating sights, which is ideal for holidaymakers looking to increase their cultural knowledge whilst on holiday.
Portugal is a top destination: not only is it the only country in Europe to share the British time zone, but its location is ideal and is in fact a shorter journey than if you were to fly to Barcelona or Madrid.
Portugal is home to some beautiful scenery; from its extensive coastline, to the endless stretches of countryside. And with a consistency in perfect weather, Portugal is a location that ticks all the boxes as a holiday destination all-year round.
To absorb the local way of life, holidaymakers to Portugal should consider Portugal villas. The authentic range of villas offer holidaymakers a unique holiday that enables travellers to absorb the full charm of Portugal.
Otherwise known as the ‘Sunshine State’, Florida is the ultimate holiday destination. Holidays to Florida promise fun filled adventure for the whole family to enjoy. Whilst this holiday hotspot will be more costly than Spain or Portugal, for a trip of a lifetime Florida promises to deliver just that.
Orlando is the third most popular city visited to by tourists to America, and it is no surprise as Orlando boasts the world’s most famous theme park attractions including Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld and Universal Studios.
