Spain is the original location for British travellers looking for foreign package holidays. Decades ago, its clean, sandy beaches and far superior weather made it popular as a foreign holiday option at prices comparable with holidays at home. Spain still offers these benefits but British travellers to Spain today may be better served by opting to rent their own Spanish holiday accommodation. Whether it is a holiday apartment rental in a popular resort, or a holiday villa rental in more serene surrounds, the cost of holidaying in Spain may be considerably reduced by investigating such options.
The resorts of mainland Spain and its popular island destinations have a great many apartments available for private rental by visitors. Apartments range from one to four or more bedrooms and can therefore provide considerable cost savings to families visiting Spain. This option still allows ready access to the beaches and other attractions of the resort, without the need to be at a hotel for designated meal times. It is possible either to eat in the local restaurants, as many British visitors to Spain prefer to do, or simply purchase what is required from local shops or supermarkets.
British visitors to Spain who are hoping to do more with their holiday than lie around on the beach or visit local bars can consider renting a Spanish villa. If the rental location is chosen well, holidaymakers can still have easy access to popular resorts and beaches, as well as access to Spanish attractions that many visitors do not experience. Spain has many wonderful golf courses where keen golfers are less likely to require their umbrellas, as well as many beautiful villages, where the houses are often whitewashed to reflect the heat and create a truly picturesque appearance. Visiting these villages allows holidaymakers to meet the Spanish people in their own environment and get a taste for everyday Spanish family life.
By choosing a Spanish rental home for your holiday, you will enjoy greater freedom to travel in Spain and visit different destinations. Train services are fairly reliable and inexpensive and the beautiful and historic cities from Malaga in the south, to Madrid and Barcelona further north, contain many castles, museums and interesting visitor attractions. Whether it is an apartment or a villa, renting holiday accommodation in Spain can prove to be both less expensive and less restrictive, allowing you to concentrate simply on enjoying your Spanish holiday to the full.
