Spain is a country of contrast from its well known coastal towns, classical cities, and modern art museums. There is also a wealth of small villages, steeped in history, with small cobbled streets and shady squares. The more traditional Spain offers hillsides carpeted with springtime flowers, green pastures and sweeping panoramic views. Vineyards produce the late summer grape harvest and as the days give way to autumn, mushroom season arrives and nature's colours change to hues of gold and red. Add in the country's excellent wines, tasty tapas dishes, and the Spanish relaxed way of life and you have all the ingredients for an excellent holiday.
Don't rush, savour every step, discover a lesser known side of a well known country.
