Luxury Honeymoons & Boutique Holidays in Spain

Why should you travel to Spain with us?

From flamenco and Dalí to Rioja and wellness, we’ll craft your Spanish trip around what it is you want to do. After all, perfect itineraries are like the best pintxos – made fresh to order.

Ancient and modern; bull-fighting and flamenco. Spain is a country of deep and often surprising contrasts. One day you’re silently touring the prehistoric cave-art of El Castillo. The next you’re holding forth in the Michelin-starred restaurants of Catalonia. But our hosts will help make sense of its layers. From Antonio, a breeder of legendary Andalusian horses, to Yarra, a grower of ancient Rioja wines. These people – real Spaniards with living passions – will be your companions, drawing you deep into their historic homeland. You’d be lost without them. Don Quixote charging a windmill.

Example Spain trips

These are simply suggestions for the kind of holiday you might have. Yours will be tailored, altered, and refined until it matches you completely.

What to see and do in Spain

If you can’t see it here we’ll still plan it for you.

From surrealism to sangria

A country that gave rise to Flamenco and Surrealism is – of course – going to offer up a genuinely rich and layered experience. From hilly, food-forward Basque country, to the majestic sands of Mallorca, and the bustling culture of Barcelona, Spain is a country of countless opportunities folded into a surprisingly small package. It can take fewer than fourteen hours to cruise between Seville and the breathtaking North, but if you’re the restless type and want to linger a while longer you could connect your Spanish honeymoon with one in neighbouring Portugal.

Moved by Mallorca

A luxury holiday on the Spanish mainland – whose very centre is marked by sprawling, ornamental Madrid – has much to offer, yet we can’t talk about the lush Iberian peninsula without mentioning its majestic beaches, islands, and coastal resorts. The secluded bay of Palma de Mallorca pours out a quite unforgettable dose of relaxation and rejuvenation, set amidst its baked-yellow former military fortresses, restaurants of firewood ovens and grills, and the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, making Mallorca an obvious contender for any luxury European honeymoon.

An idyll in Ibiza

The Balearic Islands are some of the most geologically magnetic places on the earth. Of course, they’re also metaphorically irresistible, which also explains why the Balearics are such an unforgettable honeymoon destination. Ibiza is intimate, sun-soaked, and calm. Meanwhile, only a boat ride away, the beaches of Formentera are some of the most famous in the world. Here you can indulge in fresh seafood on the shaded terraces, or take a private yacht out among the many deserted, secret islands that are scattered around this immaculate strip of coastline.

Barcelona and Basque Country

The old haunt of Picasso and Dali also has the highest number of Michelin stars per capita in the world. This beautiful, rugged, warm region of Spain has everything from mouth-watering pintxos eateries to some of the richest culture in the world. We could go on. From Barcelona’s Gaudi-stuffed streets; to the country’s best winemaking region, Rioja; and on to cultured, and culinary, Bilbao – home to that iconic outpost of the Guggenheim Museum.

Tasting Notes with Dani Lopez

On the subject of food, we’ve crafted some truly luxurious, boutique holidays to Basque country that won’t fail to excite the senses. As part of our Tasting Notes itineraries, we’ve curated a specifically culinary travel journey from Bilbao to Getaria, by way of San Sebastian. World-class chefs Dani Lopez, Aitor Arregui and Elena Arzak whisk you off through the worlds of Basque eating – including the moreish and infinitely inventive pintxos to culinary masterclasses and private tours of local txakoli wineries, eating anchovies in Cantabria and attending a txokos – a secret 19th century dining club.

The best of Spain

San Sebastian

A busy cultural calendar, lush countryside, and incomparable dining make San Sebastián a sleeper hit in the Basque region.

With the Bay of Biscay pawing gently at its side, you come here to practice the art of indulgence. From local txakoli (a lightly sparkling wine) to the storm of small pintxos plates that leave many (happily) reeling. Here, our guides will introduce you to its best wineries; its secret dining clubs; and an inspiring tour of arty Bilbao (just a skip along the coast).

Barcelona

Experience the dazzling home of modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, whose Sagrada Familia dominates this Catalan city’s skyline.

Barcelona is a feast. Literally. Figuratively. The inspiring Picasso Museum in the labyrinthine Gothic Quarter; a private guide through panoramic Park Guell; and a tasteful tour of the city’s emblematic markets – from La Boqueria to Santa Caterina. We saw Anna Wintour there once, the air thick with the smell of bubbling Catalan xocolata. We love it.

Mallorca

English poet Robert Graves fell in love with this glamorous yet rugged place. Why? Because “perfect tranquillity reigns.”

19th-century gun fortresses shaded by the fat lozenges of local palms. Restaurants buzzing with the pop of opened corks. Or the limestone hills and olive bluffs of Serra de Tramunta, thick with pine and rosemary. We’ll show you each of its personalities, enlisting our favourite tables, bars and spas along the way.
