Whether it is Spanish villas, luxury resorts in Spain or even Spain travel as a concept - there is something undeniably alluring about holidays in Spain.
"If we look at the sheer number of people going, Spain is still the number one top seller," a spokesperson for the Association of British Travel Agents told the Edinburgh Evening News.
And this really says it all. Holidays in Spain have always been and will always be, it seems, popular with British holidaymakers.
Why bother with a holiday villa? Indeed why bother with holiday villas in Spain? As the world of international travel becomes increasingly more accessible, holidays and planning are becoming complex and frustrating.
Those who opt to enjoy their hard earned breaks staying in holiday villas in Spain can enjoy the luxury of controlling their own sojourn and doing as much or as little as they want at their own pace and to their own schedule.
New research from American Express revealed that 65 per cent of Britons manage to fall out with their holiday companions before their planes have begun the taxi down the runway, before, even, the holidaymakers have reached the check-in desk at the airline terminal.
One of the top five holiday planning rows was revealed to be the quality and type of accommodation booked - a bug bear for 17 per cent of Brits.
