The best month to visit Barcelona

Which is the best month to visit Barcelona? May, June, September…even April or early July and November.

Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to fully enjoy the charm of Barcelona, without experiencing the suffocating summer heat and the high tourist occupancy of the high season which makes Barcelona a real boiling point.

Barcelona is a unique city due to its modernity, cosmopolitan ambience, art, people and, of course, its climate. The Mediterranean gives it its privileged climate, with little rain throughout the year and very pleasant average temperatures, ranging from 10-12 degrees in winter (December to March) to 25-30 degrees during the summer (July and August).

Although the weather is nice all year and visitors can enjoy the city without fear of too many rainy days during your stay, the best time to book a hotel in the centre of Barcelona is, undoubtedly, the spring.

From April to June, the city looks beautiful at dawn, about 6.30 am – 7.00 am, and the warm afternoons that keep the sun beyond seven in the evening. The temperature is perfect, allowing the traveler to stroll through the centre without any stress and maximising the increasingly longer days.

It is perfect if you reserve a hotel with restaurant in Barcelona, to enjoy its exquisite typical spring dishes. In your suitcase it is enough to pack some light clothes and a thin jacket for the evenings, when it still gets cold.

The summer in Barcelona is the ideal time for lovers of heat and turmoil. Fall is perfect for hiking and long walks and winter is the time to enjoy the city from its bars, shops, theatres and museums: warmth, little rain and coldness with a enjoyable side to it that invites you to discover a more intimate Barcelona.

Costa Adeje: best adults only getaway this winter

If there is a destination in Spain, at a good price, where to enjoy the best climate and the most  relaxed atmosphere this winter, that’s Costa Adeje in Tenerife.

This renowned tourist resort has in recent years become a favourite spot for adults only getaways for relaxation and wellness, those weekend trips that are a balm against routine and help cope with the long months of cold and rain that are left until the summer.

The refurbishment of some of its top rated hotels has created, in this area of Tenerife, a small oasis of tranquility designed for adults only, away from the bustle of the typical family holidays destination, and with high quality services, designed for demanding travellers who come seeking excellence in the destination.

The Iberostar Grand Hotel El Mirador is one of those adult only hotels in Costa Adeje which combine perfectly the exquisite touch of 5 star accommodations with exclusive details aimed at adults: wonderful cuisine, luxury facilities, beautiful gardens …

Along the same lines, we find the Iberostar Grand Hotel Salomé, part of the renowned resort of the 5 star hotel in Costa Adeje Iberostar Anthelia, one of the most valued by visitors to the island.

The Grand Hotel Salomé has all the amenities of an all inclusive resort in Costa Adeje but with the distinction of being one of the best hotels for adults in Tenerife: 5 restaurants, a spa centre over 1,000 m² and first class sports facilities.

A luxury service, all inclusive just for adults only.

Golf, sport and health at any age

Golf is one sport that most doctors recommend today thanks to its remarkable health benefits at any age. Its practice requires calm, mental focus and a good physical technique, but does not require the athlete excessive efforts which prevents the body, especially the joints and vital organs, to suffer an unnecessary and unhealthy overload.

Opting for a healthy sport in the open air that can be practiced throughout a lifetime, without making a large investment, are some of the reasons that has made golf a popular sport that is gaining more followers every day in our country.

Today, in response to the growing demand for golf, there are golf courses for professionals and amateurs in almost every corner of the Spanish peninsula. However, if you are a great lover of golf and have the opportunity to travel, there are places in our country that have a real devotion to this exciting sport and should be visited at least once.

This is the case of the Valle del Golf, where you find the best hotels for golfers in Marbella, a spectacular natural area, well maintained and in which the sea and mountains are combined in a unique way.

The advantage of scheduling a golf getaway south of Spain is not only the climate, but having access to the best golf clubs of the moment and also to enjoy the health benefits and treatments offered by prestigious spa hotels in Marbella, some of which are located in this dreamland.

Valle del Golf is synonymous of care and enjoyment. Simply book a hotel in Marbella and let yourself go, the experience worthwhile.
