A holiday in Spain is part of almost every travellers wish list. Spanish culture has influenced and touched us in one way or the other and this contact has left us longing for more. From the lovely sound of the Spanish guitar, the frenzied images of a bullfight, the colour drenched paintings of Picasso; the exuberance of its architecture and the pulsating beat of the Flamenco, holidays to Spain have always fired imaginations worldwide. In the deep of their hearts, everyone cherishes the dream of spending a holiday in villas in south of Spain, the land that brought us these treasures. Planning a holiday to Spain does not always start with images of gorgeous beaches and sparkling seas, but can also begin with a desire to experience the rich and passionate culture of Spain.When planning holidays at Spain, we picture ourselves in a lovely beach villa in south of Spain, sipping a glass of wine after a swim in the Mediterranean, but we also picture ourselves moving through a tableau of music, football, dance, festivals and tradition. Holidays to Spain are normally planned based on the weather, interests, work schedules and travel deals, but other great ideas to plan them around are festivals, events and local holidays in Spain. In this way, you can experience Spain at its unique best, while taking a break. So for instance, if we primarily plan a beach holiday in Spain or for that matter a golfing holiday in Spain, we might make it a richer cultural experience by catching some Flamenco performances, or even learning a few dance steps, or participating in the local carnival, celebrating along with the residents! This would make our Spain holidays much more memorable!Spain is a huge country and there cannot be anything like a Spain holiday that allows you to cover the entire country during the duration of one holiday. It might be wiser to break up your holiday in parts to explore different parts of Spain, each time. You would need to choose a particular region of Spain and plan a holiday around it to be able to experience it fully. The most scenic and culturally rich cradle to start with would be, undoubtedly, south of Spain holidays. Andalucia in Spain is one such region with its capital in Seville and having been home to the Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Visigoths, Berbers and Moors throughout its eventful history.

Some of the most well-known places to visit in Andalucia are: Puerto Banús, Marbella and Benalmadena, to name a few. Almeria is one of the cities in Andalucia that have best preserved their Moorish heritage. The most exquisite part of Almeria is its splendid coast, Costa de Almeria. Bound by the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean to its south, Portugal to its east and the rest of Spain to its north, Andalucia is always alive to the beat of the Flamenco! Fortunately, it is quite easy to find bed and breakfast hotels and villas in south of Spain, be it a conveniently located Almeria hotel, a bed and breakfast hotel in Marbella or Benalmadena hotels.
