Spain has been a long-time favourite for tourists, as there really is something for everyone here. The country attracts families, groups of friends and of course couples. Spain is full of romantic destinations from quaint little towns to huge cultural cities. If its time for you and your partner to get away for an adults-only holiday and Spain is calling your name, we’ve got the ultimate guide on how to plan your adults-only escape to Spain.
Find an adults-only hotel
A great way to start of your adults only escape to Spain is to keep it strictly adults of course! Thankfully, this is easy to do. There are many hotels which now only offer rooms and facilities for adults, meaning their age restrictions usually stand at 16+ or 18+. If you’re looking to get away from the kids for a while, then booking an adults-only hotel is your best bet on keeping it that way.
Go wine tasting in La Rioja
There are vineyards galore in Spain and what better excuse is there to drink some wine whilst on holiday? There are many wine tasting trips that you can go on as a couple and you may even get some tapas to enjoy along with it. Spain has wine tasting packages that you can book, where you can embark on a guided tour. The views of the vineyards alone are wonderful and with the extra Spanish cuisine, you’ll be in for a treat. La Rioja is possibly the wine capital of Spain, famous for its red wine. Visit Bodegas Muga for your wine tasting journey.
Enjoy Spanish tapas
There’s no better meal to have in Spain than tapas. Add that to a candle lit dinner with your partner and you’re all set. Spain is the perfect backdrop for a lovely dinner with your loved one. Traditional tapas restaurants won’t be hard to come across in Spain. They are dotted all about throughout the country. Typical tapas dishes include patatas bravas which are chunks of potato covered in a light sauce, with a slight hint of spice. Gambas al pil pil is another popular dish which consists of prawns cooked with garlic, chilli and paprika and finally garnished with some parsley and lemon. La Taberna de Cervantes in Malaga is a fantastic spot to enjoy a romantic dinner of tapas as a couple.
