Country Information - Spain

Spain is an eternal love affair with the British for hundreds of reasons. Foremost is the accessibility from the UK, with a flight of just two hours or so you can be in another world. The weather is superb, healthcare excellent, and the cost of living is still much cheaper than the UK.

The vast majority of beaches have been awarded the EEC Blue Flag Award, and with coastline varying from the shallow lagoons and extensive sand dunes of the south to the deeply indented rocky coves and bays of the north you are sure to find an area that will enchant you. Spain has many other things to offer including a wide range of health spas, leisure facilities, and excellent golf courses to a championship standard as well as the crystal clear waters which allow you to enjoy every water sport imaginable. Spain also has excellent and reasonably priced skiing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the North of Granada.

Spain is the 4th largest country in Europe and 3rd most visited in the world after the USA and France. There is no doubt that the Spaniards are naturally friendly, tolerant, laid-back and very family orientated. However, if you really want to make the most of the way of life, put learning a little Spanish at the top of your list of priorities!

Due to the close proximity to the sea, seafood is always a favourite option. One of Spain's traditional dishes is of course Paella and this comes in many guises depending on the region. However, there are many different cuisines you can try with Mexican, Indian, French, being just a few. And of course wine is an essential accompaniment to any meal.

As a general rule of thumb the Spanish like to eat late! Be prepared if you want to fit in with the locals, you may have to retrain your stomach-clock to ward off those hunger-pangs!
