If you’re anything like me, you’ll be dreaming of going on holiday. I wish I could be planning a trip somewhere exotic but I’m just not ready to venture off that far yet. So whether you’re just dreaming, like me, or actually planning on jetting off, here’s my top tips for a luxury holiday.
If you’re going to Spain and plan on making it a trip you will never want to forget, luxury is on the itinerary list from top to bottom. But what exactly is a luxury holiday and for that matter, what is a luxury holiday going to look like in Spain? The first thing to remember is, Spain is known for its coast, so water activities and great views are a must. It’s also known for its amazing food, so go beyond the typical tapas restaurants as there is so much more to Spanish cuisine. It’s also known for its amazing wines, olive oil and it’s fresh fruit, so go to a restaurant that has earned its stars. Let’s explore what you could be doing on your luxury holiday in Spain.
Your own place
Hotels are great, but sometimes, the best luxury is found in contemporary apartments, by the sea. For a luxury holiday in Marbella you should try to rent your own apartment that is by a beach, has access to the nearest nightclubs, restaurants and water sports. You can find this here, as these apartments are specifically close to the beach, away from the tourist traps and give you a chance to be immersed in the city or town.
The place will have its own plush decor, with sofas made of fabric that is perfect for a hot holiday. The sofas won’t be made of leather, but incredibly soft cotton, silk or refined linen, packed with foam that breathes and allows your body to sink into the cushions.
The best dining opportunities
As you can imagine, you will find some of the best Spanish restaurants in Madrid. Restaurant Sacha is just one example of a modern Spanish dining experience. Its rustic roots are on display as it has candle-lit dinners with dim lighting and traditional linen Spanish tablecloths. When you look at the menu you will be surprised, as it has more than just conventional seafood. It has seared lamb chops, bathed in garlic shoots, with lots of lentils that add body to the dish. The spices and the herbs mix well with the red wine sauce. Or you can go to the Saddle. Not only do they have live jazz, but they also have Godello, one of the finest single-vineyard wines in Spain.
Kitesurfing in Spain is a very popular sport and it’s open to visitors in various coastal cities. Of course, you will find that there are luxury boating services that can take you on a guided tour of the best kite surfing areas. You can also have a yacht ride around the coast, overlooking coastal towns at night, enjoying the lights and sipping on wine as you enjoy a meal on board.
A luxury holiday in Spain has got to have a luxury apartment. The restaurants you should seek are going to serve you more than tapas, and especially the most exquisite wines the country has to offer.
