It can sometimes be tricky to choose an ideal holiday destination in Europe. There are so many great places you can visit. Yet probably establishing some certain criteria that you wish your vacation to meet is a pretty good way of ending up in an amazing place. Or... here's another idea: the Andalusia region of Spain is one that meets all sorts of expectations: it has golden beaches and beautiful mountain ranges with an impressive fauna and flora, the famous “white villages” and the world renowned folklore with the bullfighting and the Flamenco, history, culture and traditions. And yet another great part of it all is that you can actually have:
The capital of this region is the city of Seville, one that is much beloved by tourists. A holiday in Andalusia must take you here, so you can see the Arabian bell tower Giralda, the Torre del Oro Cathedral, the Barrio Santa Cruz district and many others. There are of course other cities you can get to from a holiday home in Andalusia, such as Granada with its Alhambra Arabian place, or Cordoba with its stunning Mosque, there are beautiful coastal regions or places that are at the foot of impressive mountains. You have plenty to choose from, without a doubt.
The culture of Andalusia is one defined by traditional dances such a the Flamenco, by the world famous custom of the bullfighting, by the amazing local gastronomy, popular events such as the Easter Week, the Carnival in Cadiz, the April Fair in Seville, the Rocio pilgrimage in Huelva.

So what is there to do/see/experience in Andalusia? You can actually be the “story teller” on this subject this year.
You most likely have heard about the nature of many places being defined by variety. Well, it's actually the same for the nature of Andalusia, just that here everything has its own specific character... a Spanish one: incomparable. A holiday in Andalusia can quickly turn from a vacation at the beach on the Costa de la Luz, or Costa del Sol, Costa de Almeria, etc. to one of skiing or hiking in the mountains such as the Sierra Morena, Sistemas Beticos. Visit the Doñana National Park if you get the chance, or the beautiful olive groves in Jaen, spend days by the sea, check out the many ports in this region... your desire of spending a holiday in Andalusia will be on "repeat".
They say Andalusia is one of the regions with the closest resemblance to paradise, and believe it or not, that is not even surprising. The stunningly beautiful countryside, the impressive mountains, the 900 km of coastline and its 3000 hours of sunshine per year turn this from a possibility to a fact almost.

It's just a most paradisiacal of times.
In matters of activities and sports, the description of “variety” still stands. You can actually go skiing in the resorts of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in winter, and you can of course, see to an inflatable banana boat at the beach, or go sailing, swimming, sunbathing, explore the “white villages” with their folklore and artisany. Surfing in Tarifa, on the Coast of Cadiz is also just perfect.
