Escape the grey with our picks of short breaks to Spain

Just a couple of hours away by flight is a country where the sun rarely stops shining. If you’re looking for some guaranteed sunshine – which can be even more important when you’re on a short break – then Spain is just the ticket. Our range of holiday lettings in Spain covers everything from stylish apartments in the heart of Barcelona, to holiday villas on the Balearic Islands, holiday homes and apartments on the Costa del Sol, and traditional fincas in Andalucia.

Explore everything Spain has to offer on a city break

City breaks to Spain offer the best of both worlds – a healthy dose of sunshine alongside a bucketful of culture, and that’s before we even get to the food. If you choose to visit Barcelona, you’ll even get a world-class beach thrown in.

City break in style with an apartment in Spain’s coolest city

Barcelona is packed to the city limits with great things to see and do on a cheeky weekend away. Architecture aficionados will want to make sure they cross all of Gaudi’s fantastical buildings off their to-do list, while the city’s Gothic Quarter offers narrow streets crowded with stunning buildings and hot chocolate shops. Meanwhile, down on the beach, it’s all about getting a few beers in while watching the sun set (or rise).

See another side of Spain in seductive Seville

Seville is the capital of Spain’s southern Andalusia region, boasting a truly incredible year-round climate that’s matched only by its historic significance and astounding architecture. Due to the city’s wonderful weather, you can enjoy a trip here at almost any time of the year, but it would be perfect in spring or autumn. Moorish palaces, Gothic cathedrals and the capital of flamenco all help make Seville a truly unique city break destination.

Go for the art, stay for the tapas in regal Madrid

Madrid’s royal pedigree shines through, from the wide sweep of the epic boulevards, to the handsome facades of the apartment blocks and the vast rooms of its most famous art galleries. Madrid’s artistic history is like no other city on earth, with three world-class galleries – the Museo del Prado, Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza forming the famous ‘golden triangle of art’ on the Paseo del Prado. But get away from these stately rooms and you’ll find a buzzing nightlife scene and tables full of tempting tapas.

Escape to the beach on a short break in the sun in Spain

Even a couple days on the beach will have you lapping up the vitamin D and feeling like a fully functioning human being again. So, even if you’ve only got a weekend to spare, a short break to Spain can do wonders for your health and happiness.

Catch some winter rays on the Canaries

The Canary Islands are perfect for topping up the winter tan. Just a few hours away by plane, the islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura have been attracting winter sun lovers for years. Our holiday apartments and lettings mean that whichever island you choose to stay on, you’ll have a great range of options, whether you’re after an apartment with a sea view or a villa with a private pool.

Use your short break in Spain to sunbathe in the Balearics

The Balearic Islands are ideal for a quick getaway, especially when all you want is a short break in the sunshine. With practically unbroken sunshine all year round, the islands of Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza are also incredibly easy to get to and boast some of our best beachside holiday lettings. Alternatively, you might want to swap sunbathing for sightseeing and settle down in a stylish apartment in the always elegant Palma de Mallorca.

Make the most of a short break to Spain on the Costa del Sol

Short breaks in Spain are the ideal way to make sure the winter blues don’t get you down. Or, if you’re running out of holiday allowance, and need a flying trip to some guaranteed sunshine in the summer, you might want to start planning a weekend getaway to the Costa del Sol. Still one of the most popular places for Britons seeking sun, sea and sand, our holiday apartments and villa rentals in Costa del Sol will help set any sun seeking plan into action.
