Spain - The ideal Romantic break destination
17 October 2011 @ 18:39

Romantic breaks in Spain are a great way to get away to a location where you can forget the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy a truly romantic atmosphere.

Spain is rich in history, culture, arts and food, and the temperate Mediterranean climate is inviting throughout the year. When the weather is warm, you can enjoy a beach holiday along the Spanish Riviera, or you may wish to explore the architectural heritage left by the Moors in Andalusia.

During the Moorish period, Spain was a crossroads for many cultures, each which left its mark in modern Spain. In Andalusia, you can enjoy the excitement of flamenco music and dancing originating among Spain’s Gypsy population. Or you can try paella, a tasty dish dating to the Moorish populations that worked Valencia’s rice fields.

Spain’s cities hold plenty of allure with an abundance of monuments that tell the story of the country’s diverse past. Barcelona mixes the old with the new in great style. An ancient Roman town, Barcelona became an important centre during the time of Charlemagne’s empire. In modern times, the city gained fame through its association with great artists like Picasso, Gaudi and Miró. And if weather permits, which it usually does, you can enjoy time on Barcelona’s seafront or on nearby beaches.

Those interested in a getaway to Spain will find no shortage in romantic accommodation in this country. There are many charming and rustic hotels, resorts, hostels and other accommodations in every corner of Spain whether you want to spend your time on the beach in South, in the mountains near the French border, or any other location.
Hiring a car is simple in Spain and whether you are looking for car hire Majorca, Madrid or Malaga, the process remains pretty similar and this is a great way to save money on the boring parts of your trip so you have more to spend on the fun eating and sightseeing parts.

A holiday in Spain has a lot to offer and at prices that are easy on your budget. Couples looking for romance will find much to enjoy here.
