Passionate. Diverse. Vast. Spain defies every stereotype.
From Andalusia’s fragrant orange groves and the white tipped Pyrenees, to Mallorca’s sapphire seas and pristine beaches — Spain boasts a wealth of soul-stirring landscapes. Throw in the sublime architecture, a smooth Rioja and the hot-blooded people and it’s easy to understand how Spain becomes a life-long love affair.
Take a private yacht to Menorca; tour prehistoric sites and pristine secluded coves before watching the sun set over the Mediterranean Sea from a spectacular clifftop spot; slow the pace at laid-back Formentera, exploring the tiny island by bicycle before a barbecue at a traditional chiringuito beach shack while the sun sets; visit the vibrant art, design, and music scenes in Barcelona and Madrid with a leading guide; hike and camp in the limestone-peaked Tramuntana Mountains; linger over a gourmet lunch in a hillside village, serenaded by a chamber orchestra; squeeze the veg at every stall on the market with a local chef; immerse yourself in a village fiesta; visit Gaudi's masterworks with a local historian; taste the world-class wines of Priorat's exclusive small producers; take a private tour of Madrid's Bernabeu stadium.
Where to Stay
Secluded Andalusian fincas; a refurbished military fortress in a Mallorquian bay; whitewashed haciendas in Ibiza’s hills; Barcelona’s leading design hotels.
When to Go
Go south, or to the islands, during spring for the wildflowers and balmy temperatures. Catch culture in the cities in autumn. Ski beautiful Baqueira in February.
