Luxury Mainland Spain Holidays

Sun, sangria and siestas

Mainland Spain

Although Spain is home to big-name cities like Barcelona and Madrid, when the weather heats up, its costas are the only place to be. 

Down in the south of the country is the famous Costa del Sol, a holiday favourite that offers a little something for everyone. After celeb-worthy wine bars and sleek marina-side restaurants? Head for Marbella. Want a dose of culture before you head to the beach? Spend a morning in Malaga. Just fancy the quiet life? Try Nerja. Wherever you choose, you’ll never be far from a gorgeous stretch of sand and a cold glass of sangria.

Costa Del Sol
The Costa del Sol is home to some of the best-known towns in Spain, from ritzy Marbella to the charming portside resort of Estepona.
When to go

One thing’s for sure – Spanish summers are hot. On mainland Spain, summers are long and the rest of the year is pretty sunny too, peaking at 30°C in July and August. The Canaries are a good winter sun destination, with steady mid 20s sunshine for as many as 10 months a year. Over on the Balearics there’s more good news, with similarly hot average temperatures and around 11 hours of sunshine per day.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
