Self Catering Holiday Accommodation & Self Catering holidays

Spanish Apartments

It's hard to pass up the lure of the sun, especially when the weather is dull and dreary at home. Whether you are going for a winter break, Easter getaway or summer holiday, Spain is one of our most popular holiday destinations. In fact, some people like it so much that they never come back to the UK. You can find accommodation of all types in Spain, but many people choose self catering Spanish apartments because it offers the best of both worlds. They have the independence of planning their holiday to suit themselves, while keeping expenses under control. Here are some factors to consider before starting your apartment search.

Choosing A Time

First of all, consider when you want to go on holiday. Winter sun holidays are very popular, so if you're hoping to escape the damp, then you will need to book early. Next you will need to find out when you can check in and out. Some Spanish apartments have set booking periods. If you are booking a package holiday, this will be done for you, but if you plan to book your own flights, make sure that you can get the dates you really need.

You will probably already have chosen the location you want. Whether you want your accommodation close to the beach, to shopping, to city centre facilities or to child friendly amenities, you will probably be able to get what you want. If you're travelling with children, check for cots and high chairs, as not all apartments have these available. The Auroras Flats in Barcelona, El Coloso in Benalmadena and Las Colinas Suithotel in Almeria are three examples of apartments that cater for children in Spain.

Cooking And Transport

Cooking facilities are an important part of any self catering holiday. It's true that you may not want to cook every day, but you'll want to make sure that your apartment has adequate cooking facilities. Most Spanish apartments will have a cooker, kettle and fridge freezer. More modern apartments may also include microwaves, dishwashers and washing machines. Washing your clothes in the sink could be a thing of the past with the right Spanish apartment.

Transport is a key factor when choosing Spanish holiday apartments. If you are going to drive, then you might go for a secluded apartment with great views, such as the Finca Cencerrita. This luxury Spanish apartment features a barbecue, wood burning stove, swimming pool and hot tub. For others, it may be more important to have a city centre location with ready access to sights and shopping. An example is the Auroras Flats in Barcelona, where you can also take your pets.

Whether you're looking for accommodation in Murcia, Almeria, Barcelona or the Costa del Sol, you will have plenty of choice when looking for Spanish apartments. Just imagine yourself sitting on the balcony of your Spanish holiday apartment watching the sunset with a glass of sangria and a plate of paella.
