A holiday in Spain appears to be helping the movie-star Rhys Ifans recover from his break up with fellow celebrity Sienna Miller.
Ifans has been spotted enjoying the company of an as yet unnamed beauty in the Spanish sun while on holiday in the Balearics.
According to a report from the Mirror, the actor's friend, superstar Kate Moss, has been encouraging him to return to Ibiza despite reminding him of the times he shared there with his former girlfriend.
The newspaper jokes that the star of Notting Hill and the 51st State has effectively replaced his old partner with "Sienna Mk II" because of his new girlfriend's apparent resemblance to the actress.
Supermodel and headline-grabber Kate Moss has been spotted enjoying a day on the beach while on holiday in Spain.
The star, perhaps showing that Spain can be a great place for family holidays, was with her five-year-old daughter Lila Grace and her mother Linda.
Naturally, Moss was holidaying in Spain with other well known faces, in this case those of fashion designer Marc Jacobs and his boyfriend Lorenzo Martone.
She was spotted on the island of Formentera and in all likelihood has been enjoying luxury accommodation while soaking up the Spanish sun.
Consumers planning luxury holidays in Spain are likely to go ahead and set off to the sun, it has been suggested.
There are a number of holiday sectors in which demand for services and accommodation has dipped in recent months but luxury Spanish holidays remain popular, according to Sebastian Escarrer, co-vice president of the Sol travel company.
In light of the global economic slowdown, many people from the UK and from Europe have been unable to afford a holiday in Spain this year and the same could be true again in 2009, Mr Escarrer told the El Mundo newspaper.
"We companies have to prepare ourselves to face the deceleration in our two principle markets: the Spanish and British," he is quoted as saying by Reuters.
Families across Britain are aiming to find holiday deals that are as easy on their pocket as possible, one expert has suggested.
According to Elizabeth Young from the Travel for Kids publication, the economic downturn has meant millions of Britons are looking for inexpensive ways to get away.
Holidays in Spain remain popular in the UK and many people are keen to make sure that financial constraints do not mean they miss their annual trip to the Mediterranean.
"When families have less disposable income, they take cheaper vacations and this involves planning shorter holidays, lower travel costs or staying in places that have self-catering," Ms Young remarked.
An exhibit of photographs of the great artist Pablo Picasso is set to close in a few weeks' time.
Art lovers planning a holiday in Spain are advised to head over to the Picasso Museum in Malaga before August 20th if they want to get a glimpse of the unique photos that depict the artist in action.
The exhibit is designed to give an insight into the ways in which Picasso worked and the aspects of life that surrounded him as he painted some of the greatest works of modern art.
Anyone with a taste for the artistic who is enjoying a tennis or golf holiday at the La Manga Club could take the time out to head over to Malaga and check out the exhibit before it draws to a close.
Murcia in south-east Spain is set to host one of the year's biggest celebrations of flamenco traditions later this month.
The historic area of the country, which is already popular as a destination for people taking holidays in Spain, is to host the Cante de las Minas Festival from the 7th until the 16th of August.
A variety of venues, including spectacular halls will be alive with the unmistakable sounds of Spanish flamenco guitar and dancing feet.
Everything on show will be authentically flamenco as the locals and visitors enjoy the ambiance and celebrate with a range of exhibitions, dances and wine-tastings.
A Spain vacation has been a perennial favourite of British holidaymakers for decades. And yet, as society, the economy and the choice available to travellers evolve, Spain's popularity shows no sign of diminishing. So what is the secret behind this ongoing love affair?
One major factor would have to be the climate. Many experts in the travel industry this year have suggested that an increasing number of people will be staying in the UK due to the strength of the euro.
British consumers are already booking next year's holidays in Spain in an effort to get the most for their currency, it has been suggested.
The Milestones company maintains that large numbers of holidays in Spain and in other areas of Europe are being snapped up by Brits who are worried the pound will weaken against the euro.
Holidays to countries outside the so-called euro-zone are reported to have risen in popularity in recent months but people from the UK are not always willing to forego holidays to their favourite destinations.
"Bookings for popular countries are already looking strong for next year," said Matt Clapson, Milestones general manager.
The sun-drenched coastlines of various parts of Spain are unbeatable as far as many people from the UK are concerned.
Such is the claim of James Charles who writes for the Times recently that while the property market in Spain has been struggling in certain areas, there is still plenty to draw visitors to the Mediterranean.
Holidays to Spain are very popular with travellers from the UK and some families enjoy their trips so much they look to relocate to the country.
Doing so can be tricky though and anyone thinking of moving permanently to Spain should seek out all the tips and advice they can find from reputable sources, Mr Charles maintains.
Holidays in Spain remain particularly popular among British families despite the relative strength of the euro against the pound, it has been claimed.
According to Elizabeth Young, editor of the guide publication Travel for Kids, families from the UK are keen to holiday in a single location each year with Spain undoubtedly among their favourites.
Explaining why so many families from the UK set off for holidays in Spain and other parts of Europe each year, Ms Young suggests that it is straightforward and relatively inexpensive to do so.
"With inexpensive airlines, families can plan a weekend in Barcelona, for example, more easily than having to drive to the beach in the UK," she said.
