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.

Spain with A&K

When it comes to Spain A&K have an ace in the pack. A true ace. For two decades our superb team has been headed by Simon Butler-Madden, a fluent Spanish speaker who knows the Iberian Peninsula inside out, and who enjoys longstanding relationships with hotels, restaurants and the smartest guides. He is invaluable for developing creative itineraries showcasing the country's rich cultural heritage and buzzing contemporary life.

We'll take you to L'Espagne Profonde, the country's deep dark heart with its centuries-old fiestas: Extremadura's wild plains dotted with encina oaks and fascinating hill towns including Trujillo and Cáceres; Castilla y León's medieval monasteries and castles; and Andalucia's Islamic architectural gems, duende spirit and spectacular hill villages.

Whether you want a cultural tour, family holiday, or to hire one of A&K's superb villas, Simon and his team are waiting to lift the curtain on Spain's glorious, compelling, sun-kissed theatre.

Guest Testimonial

Dear Graeme, A huge thank you for a truly wonderful holiday. Thank you for all your hard work leading up to and during our stay in Kenya. You have been really great throughout. The A&K experience exceeded our expectations and we felt very relaxed and comfortable knowing that we were in good hands. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and were so good with the kids - it made our holiday truly memorable. A special mention to Patricia who met us in Nairobi both ends and Duncan who took such good care of us at the mobile camp. Thank you for the gifts - the children loved the catapult! Well actually Eric loved the catapult the kids haven't had a change to play with it yet!! As Eric said on the phone - good news - we loved the holiday - bad news (for him) - I will be in touch to discuss another trip for next year!! I hope you and all the team at A&K have a great Christmas and a very festive New Year! Kind regards, Arabella, Eric, Jake and Tate
