Spain—a melting pot of experiences

Stretching between the pounding rollers of the Atlantic and the soothing waves of the Mediterranean, and protected by the dramatic peaks of the Pyrenees, Spain encompasses diverse natural beauty and rich history in equal measure. The cultural powerhouse of Madrid is complemented by the sparkling beaches of the Costa del Sol and the heritage landmarks of Granada. Spain vacation rentals offer the chance to stay in the shadows of Valencia’s futuristic architecture, soak up the colorful culture of Seville, trek through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, or party till dawn in the lively clubs of Malaga.

Spain's 4-season appeal

Spain vacation rentals are spread throughout the country, but the Mediterranean coast remains one of the most popular summer choices. Spain’s famous costas are renowned for their family-friendly beaches and stimulating water sports. Traditional festivals fill the streets with colorful parades, theme parks cater for thrill-seekers of all ages, and restaurants serve up tasty local specialties under a canopy of stars. Spain vacation rentals in the Pyrenees, along with the picturesque ski resorts of the Sierra Nevada National Park, are top of the list for winter-sports enthusiasts and nature lovers.

Madrid—Spain’s museum hot spot

The Spanish capital, Madrid, boasts many of Europe’s most prestigious art galleries and museums. The highlight of any visit is a tour of the world-famous art collection of the Prado. This venerable institution houses priceless masterpieces by Goya, Velazquez, and El Greco, as well as works by Italian and Dutch masters. The pinnacle of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía's collection of 20th-century Spanish art is Picasso’s iconic "Guernica", along with famous paintings by Salvador Dali and Miró. The National Museum of Decorative Arts showcases a different side of Spanish cultural history through extensive displays of furniture, ceramics, glassware, textiles, and jewelry.

The rain in Spain…

Spain’s temperate climate provides the perfect conditions for sun-drenched summers on the beach and pleasant festive city breaks. Despite the popular saying, rainfall is rare on Spain’s semi-arid plains, being more typically found in the high valleys of the Pyrenees and along the Atlantic coast. Spain vacation rentals with a pool offer a refreshing respite from the sizzling heat of high summer, while cozy mountain cabins provide homey bases from which to enjoy the coming of spring after the winter snows have melted. The mild days of fall are ideal for exploring museums and heritage sites away from the peak-season crowds.

Spain’s natural wonders

Nowhere are the natural wonders of Spain more keenly prized than in Doñana National Park. This vast area of Andalusia is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unique biodiversity, which has no direct equivalent throughout the whole of Europe. Its marshland, shallow streams, and sand dunes provide supportive habitats for a wide variety of migratory birds, as well as endangered indigenous species such as the Spanish imperial eagle. Badgers, mongooses, and Iberian lynx are among its land-based residents, while over 20 species of freshwater fish are found in its rivers.
