Enjoy a Self-Catering Holiday in Spain this Summer

by .

A favourite amongst Brits, Spain is the perfect place to go for an inexpensive family holiday or a break with friends. The beaches are pristine, the temperatures hot, the waters lovely and you are sure to feel at home at the many bars and restaurants that feature British menus. Hotels can get costly, especially if you are traveling with a large group, so why not consider staying in self-catered accommodation, where you can save even more money by staying together in one house, buying all your food locally and cooking up some delicious meals for everyone. Sure, we all love to go out for dinner when we are on holiday but doing that for a whole week, or even two weeks, can get very repetitive and the bills start to stack high. Make a meal out more of a special occasion and take advantage of the fantastic local produce available in Spain. You and your family/friends are sure to love the food and drink that you can find down the village market.

So now the question is where in Spain should you go? The southern part of the country, the area of Andalusia, receives the hottest temperatures in Europe and has as its capital the beautiful city of Seville. The province of Málaga is where you will find Casa de la Sol Saliente, a traditional village house that sleeps 2-4 people in 2 delightful bedrooms. Only 3-4km from the sandy beaches of the Costa de Sol, this self-catered accommodation is perfect for families wanting a relaxing holiday close to the sea, while also being just a couple minutes walk from the village’s main plaza. Claiming to have the ‘best climate in Europe’, the village of Torrox Pueblo is a fabulous place to stay. Enjoy a wonderful holiday at Casa de la Sol Saliente on the south coast of Spain.
