Spain is extremely popular with people who want to get away to some sun, sea and sand without breaking the bank. A popular choice is to stay in a hotel or resort, preferably with a swimming pool, and relax in the sun with a drink. If you have the kids with you, many resorts offer kids’ clubs and activities. And if you stay somewhere suited to groups, the night will come alive as everyone heads out to pubs and clubs. You can find these relaxing and fun holidays along the coast of mainland Spain, as well as on several of the Spanish islands, such as Ibiza and Majorca.
A Taste of Spain

Are you all about food and drink? If the first thing you do when you arrive in a new country is seek out a taste of a local dish, a culinary holiday in Spain could be just what you’re looking for. Famed for its beautiful and vibrant cooking, Spain is an ideal holiday location for food and wine lovers. You could just book a hotel through Venere.com and work your way through all the local restaurants, market stalls and cafes. But if you want something more structured, another option is to take a holiday that includes cooking classes or a culinary tour. Learn how to make paella or spend a day tasting wine. Try Andalusia for a region that’s packed full of delicious flavours.

Some people don’t see the point of going on holiday if you aren’t going to dive head-first into the local culture. If you can’t resist learning about the history, art and culture of every destination you visit, you’ll be spoilt for choice in Spain. Visit Barcelona and marvel at the work of Gaudi throughout the city or see the Alcazar of Segovia, a medieval fortress-turned-palace. Or you could visit the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia. Spain has a whopping 44 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and you could make a holiday just travelling around to visit them. Not to mention all the wonderful art on offer from the likes Salvador Dali, whose work you can find in his museum in Figueres and his home in Cadaques.
If none of these holidays are for you, it’s easy to come up with your own plan. Whatever it is you want to do, you’ll find it in Spain. Perhaps you want a sporting holiday, or you’ll find your fun walking through the country to the pilgrimage site of Santiago de Compostela.
Travel, in the younger sort, is a part of education; in the elder, a part of experience. The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
