Hello Spain

Spain is a country for those who want to make the most out of every moment: to eat well, to drink often, to dance a lot. The tapas and sangria are the stuff of legends, the restaurants buzz, and all the locals love to party.

With its great food, rich culture, and nonstop nightlife, Madrid has real character. Barcelona is young and bohemian, artistic and wild. Some cities are beautifully historic, like Granada, Seville and Salamanca. The Mediterranean cities of Valencia, Palma de Mallorca, Alicante and Málaga have awesome beaches and unforgettable parties. We also have accommodation for students in Zaragoza, Córdoba, Murcia, Cadiz and Bilbao.
