A country of cultural and culinary delights, diverse regions and sandy beaches, Spain is the perfect location for a relaxing break teamed with culture and history. Pleasant climate and welcoming locals are just two of the reasons to love Spain. The stretches of gorgeous coastline –Costa de la Luz's beaches, the Costa Brava's pine forests and sculptural rocks that inspired Salvador Dalí, and the surf-lashed northwest Basque shore –are just the start.
Barcelona's mesmerising Gaudí architecture, from the towering Sagrada Familia to magical Parc Güell, Madrid's golden triangle of art museums, eclectic mix of 19th century architecture and cool contemporary design, and affluent San Sebastian's wonderful shopping and even better tapas are all waiting to be explored.
Spain boasts a global reputation and some of the world's greatest chefs. From San Sebastian's Michelin stars and Burgos' groundbreaking tapas to Girona's El Celler de Can Roca - the planet's number one restaurant - and the acclaimed vineyards of Rioja and Ribera del Duero, it's a major part of any holiday.
And of course you can't omit the beautiful islands where you can walk in Mallorca's Sierra Tramuntana mountains and swim in the translucent water off Menorca, its lower key neighbour with more beaches than the rest of the Balearics put together.

Her favourite travel memory is sitting in a canoe on Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe watching the sun go down behind the Matusadona Mountains whilst listening to the sound of hippos splashing around us. Next on her list is Vietnam as it has several of the world's top beaches along with an amazing history, world heritage sites and fabulous cuisine. It's also really easy to see a lot in Vietnam in a very short time.
