Here at Totally Spain, we’ve organised custom tours and travelled extensively through Portugal. We’ve written guides on the Lisbon region, the Centro region and Porto and the North Region, and now it’s time for the Alentejo! We love planning trips to this region’s amazing beaches, charming medieval cities and spectacular landscapes. And do we need to mention the excellent regional cuisine and numerous wineries? Combine our recommendations for the Alentejo with a Lisbon citybreak or a touring holiday of Spain’s enchanting Extremadura and Andalusia… Continue reading
Here at Totally Spain, we are huge fans of Portugal and love planning itineraries for clients in both countries. Having already written about the Lisbon Region and the Centro Region, today we are going to focus on the Porto & North region that lies South of Galicia and West of Castile-Leon in Spain. Porto is the major city which is the darling of the travel glossies, and of course, Gaia for the winery tours – and we have some great daytrip ideas too!
Nestled in between the cities of Lisbon and Porto and with the Atlantic coast to the West and Spain to the East, the Centro region has everything you need for a perfect midweek break. Here at Totally Spain, we’ve been devising itineraries for Spain & Portugal for over 16 years and we know it won’t be long before the international crowds arrive to explore Coimbra, Aveiro & Belmonte. See it now, we say, while it’s still relatively unknown outside of Portugal.
Cantabria in the Autumn is a wonderful place to visit and going by the weather so far all the signs are that this year it will be a warm one. At Totally Spain we’ve been living and planning custom holidays in the North of Spain since the year 2000, and we love to encourage those who can, to travel to Cantabria out of season. It can be a real treat for many reasons and so much easier to get around once the summer visitors have gone home.
Here at Totally Spain, we are huge fans of Spain’s amazing vineyards and have been sending clients to Spain’s best wineries since we started out in the year 2000. We’ve already blogged about Spain’s best wineries to visit with guides written up for La Rioja, Rioja Alavesa, Rias Baixas, Jerez and Cantabria, so today we’re bringing you the best of the Ribera del Duero, one of Spain’s most exclusive wine regions.
We’ve just waved off a large group from Australia who undertook a Customised Agricultural Themed Tour of Spain & Portugal. We specialise exclusively in bespoke itineraries at Totally Spain and we’ve really been able to flex our muscles and showcase the very best of Spanish agriculture on this one! We’ve done quite a few of these research trips for agricultural companies and organisations since we started in the year 2000 and we thought it might be interesting to share the types of trips and places that we can custom arrange for you and any group interested in Agricultural Touring in Spain.
