Famous for sun, sea, beaches and tapas. But surely just as popular for its culture, history and beautiful countryside... Discover the region from your casa rural, as the holiday homes in the Spanish countryside are often called. Or choose a cottage along one of the costas, to enjoy sea and beach. Or a weekend break in Barcelona ! Holiday homes can also be found in the heart of the city !
A unique destination, with its rich history and cultural heritage, varied landscapes and gastronomy. Here you will find from green, hilly country side with pastures and small fishing harbours to mountains with eternal snow, like the Sierra Nevada or the Pyrenees. From the steep rocky coast to the busy beaches of the Costas, from the worldly towns to the small middle ages villages inland.
The diversity and the contrasts which characterise Spain can also been seen in the culture. The country is strewn with interesting cultural sites, each with their own influences: Celtic, Iberian, Greek-Roman, Arabic. Those influences can often be recognised in the Spanish holiday homes.
The Spanish people enjoy a lively culture, with many folk festivals, and passionate music and dance (think of the 'Flamenco' in Andalusia or the somewhat gentler Sardana in Catalonia), each region with its own festivals and customs. Besides which Spain also offers an excellent cuisine: olives & olive oil, tapas, fish and shell fish paella, wine, sherry and above all varied local gastronomy. Make at least one attempt to cook Spanish in your holiday home !
