SPAIN HOLIDAYS

Splendid beaches, delicious cuisine, vibrant nightlife and lively fiestas all make a Holiday to Spain one of Europe’s best getaways and it's no surprise that after nearly 50 years of mass tourism, Spain remains the favourite destination for UK holidaymakers. Because Spain encompasses several autonomous regions and islands, the country boasts one of the most widely diverse cultures and landscapes on the continent.

UK visitors have been hitting the beaches of Spain in huge numbers since the early 1970's, enjoying the fabulous sunshine, great food and wonderful friendly people. The beach resorts are still visited by millions each year, but the vibrant cities have become almost as popular due to the large number of direct flights.

Spain may be considered by many as very familiar, but each region of this varied country offers the visitor something different. From the snow capped peaks of the Pyrenees to the sun-kissed beaches of the Costa Del Sol, Spain is brimming with Moorish fortresses, Romanesque and gothic churches and Renaissance palaces, all of which reflect the diversity of it's culture and history. From sizzling cuisine and riotous fiestas to contemporary art, age-old museums and a fabulous beach-culture, Spain sure packs a punch. So whether you are a culture vulture, history buff or beach bum, it’s almost inevitable that with Spain, it’ll be love at first sight.

Since Millington Travel's earliest days, we have been booking clients to Spain. It remains one of our favourites and our clients and staff return time after time to experience another little corner of this fabulous country.

Food and Drink

Spain's eating and drinking culture is one of its greatest attractions, and a very sociable one, with people rubbing shoulders in tapas bars and café. The Spaniards take their food seriously – be it diner-style menus or elaborate, nouveau cuisine in gourmet restaurants. Food is generally good whichever corner of Spain you go to. Trying Tapas is a great way of sampling different dishes from all over the country. Paella is a national favourite, and seafood is always fresh and tasty if you are near the costal resorts. Popular Spanish drinks include Sangria, Rioja, sparkling Cava and Sherry which is produced in the far southwest near Jerez.
