TAKE A RELAXED APPROACH TO TIMETABLING, THROW AWAY YOUR WATCH AND BREATHE THE CLEAN AIR OF FREEDOM.

Family affairs

The concept of family is infinitely more tangible in Spain than most places. Spanish families spend a lot more time together - especially for meals - than British ones.

Sharing is caring

When going out for food or tapas, everyhting is shared. Forget about your own plate! Bury your greedy instincts and use it as an opportunity to try new things, and remember that the last slice will certainly be gone long before there’s a discussion about it.

Try new things!

Tapas

Tapas are more than just snacks in Spain. Each tapa is really no more than a bite, so you can either sample two or three before dinner, or you can make a meal of them by ordering larger portions, called raciones. Tapas are generally eaten standing at the bar rather than sitting at a table with friends or family.

Olives are called in Spain "The Queen of Tapas", because it's really common to have them with a cold beer at any time.

Food & Fun

The gastronomy of Spain is as rich and varied as the country itself. First class ingredients, excellence in cooking, wise old tradition and promoting new culinary concepts, have led Spain to be on top of the culinary list in Europe.

The Spanish cuisine is extremely diverse and ranges from snacks (tapas) to generous portions of fresh regional and local dishes based on meat or fish and other unique dishes. If you like good food, you'd love Spain.

The sacred present of sunny Spain!

Outdoor life is firmly entrenched in the Spanish way of life. Maybe you'd like to join the club because, let’s face it, it feels so good and cheers you up!

Fiestas and Traditions

All Spanish towns and cities have their own special celebrations, as well as the national holidays such as Christmas, Easter Week, All Saints Day etc.

The way in which the national events are celebrated also varies from place to place.

The Spanish people

Spaniards in general are a very friendly, warm and fun-loving race. People seem to think that they are lazy but this is simply NOT true. In general, Spanish people are hard-working but they do know how to enjoy their free time.
