Beach or city, you choose what you want for this summer.
Holidays in Greece
It is always a wise choice. Greece, despite being experiencing an intense economic crisis, is still one of the main centres of tourist attraction in the world. Favourite enclave for travellers from central Europe for escaping from the routine and enjoying the sun, it offers one of the best spots for relaxing and resting: its islands. Some of the star accommodations in the Greek islands belongs, precisely, to Spanish chains. Stand out, for example, Iberostar’s hotels in Crete: Creta Marine Hotel and Creta Panorama Mare Hotel.
Croatia for adventurers
Since some years ago, Croatia has become one of the main summer holiday destinations in Europe. House of one of the most extensive and pristine coasts of the Adriatic, it is perfect for adventure travel lovers since, besides parties, cuisine and beach, it offers a natural environment full of possibilities. In regard to accommodation, the country has really improved, offering family resorts in Umag, beach hotels close to Dubrovnik and apartments in emblematic islands such as Krk.
The treasure of the Black Sea Bulgaria
Sunny Beach, in the coast of Bulgaria, is one of the most recommended enclaves for holidays in the Black Sea. Boasting complete services and a large top level network of accommodations, this locality located close to the famous Burgas and Nessebar cities, is perfect for a sun and beach getaway without missing a great deal of culture and folklore. For staying, booking a beach resort in Sunny Beach is the best option, since it allows you to enjoy the entire region in a comfortable and easy way.
Jerez in summer
The Andalusian city of Jerez is one of the fashionable destinations in this 2014. Full of life and cultural and cuisine proposals, in the summer months this city becomes the centre of attention thanks to its nearness to the marvellous Cádiz beaches and its lively social life. Streets full of terraces, wines routes, the impressive landscape surrounding it and the history of its people and monuments compose an eclectic trip plan designed for curious minds seeking something more than beach. When you book an accommodation, to make the most of the city centre and its surroundings, the best option is choosing a well connected hotel in Jerez.
The island of calm can not be missed in a list of summer holidays destinations. But on this occasion, we suggest to you a more urban trip, a stay in its capital, Palma, that since some years ago is firmly working to offer a complete alternative of a typical sun and beach trip. Booking a hotel in the centre of Palma, next to the Paseo Marítimo and its main commercial streets are perfect for enjoying the new fashionable neighbourhoods of the city. Santa Catalina, Ciudad Antigua, Blanquerna… And, from time to time, escaping to its coves and paradise beaches.
