Barcelona isn’t the only cool Spanish city on the Mediterranean. A little further down the coast, Valencia offers lots of style and charm as well as exceptional good value. Here at Totally Spain, we’ve been designing itineraries for the past 18 years and think Spain’s third city is a real must-see for the senses.
Ten years ago, we rarely encouraged our clients to dine at Spanish hotel restaurants. See why that’s no longer the case – as we share 10 of the best Michelin Star Hotel Dining experiences in Spain where it’s possible to sleep & dine in luxury and style.
If you are in Spain over a long weekend or a significant holiday, expect to see a huge exodus from the large towns and cities as the locals make the trip back to their ancestral villages in the mountains and along the coast. It’s a time for fresh air, elaborate family meals and spending quality time with relations and old friends. If you’d like to experience this too, why not embark on one of our suggested Short Roadtrips in Spain and discover rural life in Spain’s charming villages.
We all know Milan is different to Rome and Hamburg is different to Munich – but lots of first-time travellers to Spain don’t realise how different Barcelona is to Seville and San Sebastian to Madrid. We’ve been designing itineraries around Spain and Portugal for two decades and many of these trips showcase the diversity in landscape, climate, history, culture, lifestyle and cuisine. Here’s a sense of what to expect as you travel around Spain from North to South and East to West. And as always, Totally Spain is here to assist with your custom Spain tour just as we have done for thousands of travellers like you since 2000.

If you want to travel in style, we’d be honoured to design your tailored Totally Spain trip starting out here in Santander, Northern Spain.
