Spain has become the hot destination of Europe. The cities of Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Bilbao, Cordoba and Granada are all testaments to the harmonious marriage of tradition and modernity that makes Spain so attractive.
The country is much more than flamenco music and bullfighting. Spain is the grand architecture of its great cities and treasures of its museums, from the Alhambra in Granada and Gaudi in Barcelona to the Prada in Madrid and the Guggenheim in Bilboa. It is also the charm of villages like Andalucia and Catalonia, which have a strong connection to the glorious history of the region.
Spain boasts more than 4,000 kilometers of coastline, where visitors can relax and enjoy sun and sea in gorgeous settings. They can also indulge in some of the finest cuisine on the Continent, prepared by star chefs who attract and satisfy epicureans from around the world. Or they can try a down-to-earth, traditional Spanish meal, with a savory paella and fruity sangria followed by a creamy flan.
LaCURE offers the absolute finest private villas in Spain. Choose from among the best locations on the Mediterranean coast: the Costa del Sol and Marbella, as well as the Costa Brava and Barcelona. In the highly desirable Balearic Islands, LaCURE has properties on Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca. Nestled on hillsides, these Spanish villas, with terraces, offer spectacular Mediterranean and mountain views.
The Spanish are known for is their siestas and fiestas. The siestas, shutting down shops and businesses in the late afternoon hours, permits people to recharge their batteries for the hot nightlife to come. Some evenings the streets start bustling around midnight and the party goes well into the wee hours. For your own siesta, you can return to your Spanish villa, perhaps lounging by the pool, plotting your nighttime itinerary.
Using your villa as a base, you can bike around Ibiza and check out almond groves and olive trees, or take a ferry over to Formentera to enjoy its quiet, pristine beaches. It also has a natural mud bath, where you slather yourself in muck, head back to the beach, let the mud dry and then hop in the sea to wash up.
With LaCURE Costa del Sol villas, you can find yourself shoulder-to-shoulder with the rich and famous. Lie out on the white-sand beaches and watch the palatial yachts cruise through the harbor and luxury cars race up and down the area's "Golden Mile." As always in Spain, you'll find the entertainment is non-stop.
