The popular holiday destination of Spain lies on the Iberian peninsula between Portugal and France, boasting various climates through its unique altitude and the surrounding sea. Whilst it is particularly hot inland, especially during summer, a refreshing breeze is present throughout coastal regions. Unwind and bask in the refreshing breeze in beautiful villas in the Costa de la luz by Spain’s southern Atlantic coast where the sea is a bit wavier due
to a more prevalent wind, ideal conditions for surfers. A somewhat milder yet more humid climate is found at Spain’s northern Atlantic coast where the appropriately named, “Costa Verde” – the green coast, is found. Spain boasts various offers for nature, culture as well as sport and leisure activities – not only are there hotspots for surfers, but also for families, those looking for a peaceful break as well as revellers.
