We love Spain! We both lived there (a very long time ago) and visit there frequently.

There is so much to see and do in a relatively small area with different cultures, food and architecture....Madrid, Andalucia (Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada) and Barcelona are some of our favorite areas. You could easily spend 7-10 days in any of these three regional areas...but you might also try to do 2 out of 3 in that time. .I gave you my email address via private message..and I believe I still have the pictures up on Facebook from our last trip there to Madrid and Andalucia......Let us know how we might help you zero in...

I love watching movies filmed in Spain. It always seems to be the most perfect weather.

Been on my bucket list for a long time.

Mike and I LOVED Spain! We spent time in Barcelona (rented an apartment for a week in the Old Quarter), plus visited Granada, Sevilla, Malaga, & Cadiz. We would really like to travel again to Spain and take in some of the other areas such as magnificent Madrid and also the northwest coastal areas. We LOVE the tapas style of eating and the wonderful wines!!

A third YES YES YES!

I spent one week on an Equitour thru southern andalucia riding past and through some of the many white villages and long gallops on the beach. Amazing. The food, the wine, the scenery and the history and culture particularly in that area is deep and rich. I also spent several weeks in Madrid and Toledo. There is so much to see and again the food.....better than the French IMO!!
