Andalucia

In the south of Spain, Andalusia distinguishes itself by its green nature, its unusual constructions and its people of exceptional joy of life. With its agricol plains, hills and rivers, this autonomous region has inherited from the architecture of the Maures who dominated it in the Middle Age. Having some of the most famous cities in Spain such as Grenada, Malaga or Sevilla, it will be easy for you to explore the full region and meet its welcoming and cosmopolitan people. Hospitality being indeed the root of the Andalusian land, it is under a bright sun that you will discover the joy of locals for big religious celebrations and Mediterranean cuisine. In sum, a destination for those who like to live intensely while still chilling with the traditional Spanish siestas, for which Andalusian people remain unbeatable.

Balearic Islands: Majorca and Ibiza

Majorca

Part of the famous Balearic Islands, it is also its largest. Reputed for its mass-tourism, it would be a shame to limit your description to it: the island has many natural spaces, streets and buildings full of charm, and is only crowded in summer. Indeed, it is true that Palma, capitale located on the west coast, is very animated in the high season, and we know why. With a picturesque architecture, it has an attractive potential reuniting both families for its looks of historical villages and the youngs for its parties on the beach. Stroll in the street, admire the impressive cathedral, taste the traditional ensaimada with a refreshing granizado de almendra… these simple pleasures of life won’t disappoint you.
