London (PRWEB UK) 19 April 2013
Casamundo.co.uk this week announced that Spain continues to be by far the most popular self-catering holiday destination for British overseas holidays. They said: “In our experience Spain continues to be by far the most popular holiday destination for British travellers. With its short traveling time, reasonable villa prices, stunning scenery, beaches and summer sunshine, it’s not hard to see why”.
The Costa Blanca and Malaga area see the largest portion of British tourists during the busy July and August period. With a huge selection of villas lining the many towns and resorts of the Spanish Mediterranean coast, there are many options for all tastes and budgets that consistently draw Brits in search of sunshine. Yet Spain’s cities are a huge draw for British tourists also. Barcelona’s eclectic mix of architecture ranging from Gothic to the surreal Catalan Modernism of Gaudi give the city an unmistakeable atmosphere that makes the city one of the most unique and memorable across Europe.
The Canary Islands remain popular with Brits all year round because its southerly latitude means stays warm even in winter with Tenerife being the most popular of the islands. Its excellent beaches and mountainous interior attracts sunbathers and hikers in equal measure. Surprisingly Spain also has numerous excellent ski resorts with slopes and facilities to rival the more popular destinations in the Alps. One of these is Sierra Nevada, which consistently receives excellent snow and is only a two-hour drive from the Mediterranean coastline. Alternatively there is a host of other ski resorts in the Pyrenees close to the French border that have a great selection of self-catered accommodation and can be visited in combination with a city break in Barcelona.
Casamundo.co.uk also added: “In addition to the excellent beaches and weather, Spanish food and wine has an international reputation that attracts British foodies and wine lovers who want to sample local delicacies such as Rioja, chorizo or paella while staying at a self-catered villa."
