Luxury Travel: All-time Favourites
Luxury Travel: All-time Favourites
Amanda Bailey, Reservations Manager at Carrier

Find out why Spain is Amanda’s all-time favourite.

My love for Spain is profound, largely due to the fact that it ticks every box imaginable: families, couples, beach dwellers, art aficionado… the list goes on. The Andalucía region is authentic Spain personified, with sophisticated Marbella offering a taste of the old and new, plus a wealth of prestigious nightspots. Ibiza boasts equal appeal, yet it’s the island’s secluded heritage that defined my stay. Wandering the peaceful old town of Dalt Vila – famed for its enchanting cathedral and protective walls that once deterred pirates – I thanked myself for exploring beyond the waterfront. Yet in Barcelona’s Barri Gotic district, the waterfront is where I wished to stay. Surrounded by cobblestone streets, local artisan shops and seafood restaurants, I was truly in my element. Premium golf and eclectic cuisine are the main draws in Tenerife, yet as for the rest of the Canary Islands, there’s not one word that could describe them all equally… just like Spain itself.

Spain /When is the best time to visit Spain

Mainland Spain’s climate varies from temperate in the north to dry and hot in the south. Spring and autumn are pleasant and warm whereas July and August are hot, particularly inland. In Mallorca sunshine and warm temperatures are the norm from April to October with the cooling influence of the sea preventing excessive temperatures during the peak summer months, winters are mild and dry with occasional showers. Tenerife and Gran Canaria are year-round destinations, the climate being constantly warm for most of the year with July and August being hot.
