Eat, Drink and Swim Spain

If you are coming to Spain for the first time, be warned: this is a country that fasts becomes an addiction.

You’ll find yourself drawn into the celebration of some local fiesta, the amazing nightlife in Madrid, the Moorish monuments of Andalucia, by the Basque cooking, or the wild landscapes and birds of prey of Extremadura. Take your pick ..

Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao. The undulating titanium of Gehry’s flagship has become one of the iconic buildings of our age.

Skiing at Baqueira Beret has some of the most wonderful skiing ideal for intermediates that I have skied.

Las Alpujarras. White villages in the southern folds of Sierra Nevada

Paella. The subtle saffron taste of this rice-based dish is best enjoyed with a sea view

The Running of the Bulls, Pamplona. If you think you’re brave enough, allow me to arrange everything from accommodation and an English speaking guide throughout the whole manic day !

The Balearic Islands. Find a quiet beach and relax

Wine. Spain has a formidable range of quality wines, as well as the famed Rioja, try the Albarino whites from Galicia or the Ribeira del Duero reds

Mini Hollywood, Almeria. Ride into town for a shoot-out or a drink at the saloon on the set of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Mezquita, Cordoba. Nothing can prepare you for the breathtaking Grand Mosque of Cordoba, one of the world’s most beautiful buildings
