Get away to somewhere different for the Constitution bank holiday. We’ll tell you about the best spots for these dates so you can escape for the December bank holiday weekend.
La Costa del Sol
The Malaga province enjoys enviable weather conditions all year round. A getaway to the Costa del Sol is always a good idea, as you can experience its wonderful light and lifestyle.
If you are looking for adventure, remember you can find the Caminito del Rey in this province, a spectacular path in the Guadalhorce region— not suitable for those with vertigo. On the other hand, be sure to visit the beautiful fishing village of Estepona, which has managed to preserve the purest essence of Andalusia in its old town.
La Costa Tropical
If you are looking for something different during Madrid Hotel Week, here at the Hotel Elba Madrid we can recommend the sculptor, Miguel Couto’s exhibit.
The capital’s hotels are all set to offer the best of their establishments. Over 70 hotels will open their doors to the inhabitants of Madrid and tourists from 5th to 11th of November to invigorate the city through exhibits, free guided tours of iconic hotels within the capital and culinary experiences with renowned chefs. All participating hotels, including the Elba Madrid Alcalá, are offering a 15% discount on accommodation during this week.
Madrid Hotel Week is an initiative by the Hotel Business Association of Madrid, which began last year. The goal is to change the general public’s conventional perception of hotels, opening them up to the city through cutting-edge experiences and activities.
Tomorrow we celebrate the most terrifying night of the year. Since we also celebrate Halloween in Spain, we’ll tell you what plans Elba Hotels is preparing from 26 October to 4 November.
Europeans increasingly celebrate Halloween, or the “Night of The Dead”, an important modern holiday in American society which in recent years is becoming more popular on the old continent, including in Spain.
Costumes, sweets, pumpkins and a lot of fear are the perfect ingredients for a different kind of weekend at Elba Hotels for the All Saints’ long weekend, offering fun for the whole family.
How to celebrate Halloween
Elba Hotels offers promotions based on the main themes of our hotels, with special decorations and cuisine, and of course, a myriad of plans for Halloween:
Oktoberfest is coming! We’ll tell you about the origins of this popular German celebration and the best ways to celebrate it with Elba Hotels.
The Bavarian beer festival is about to begin. This weekend in Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and, of course, Spain, Oktoberfest 2018 will kick off, a tradition that is over two centuries old and brings together 6 million annual visitors in the city of Munich.
The rules state that during these two weeks only beer from the six factories in Munich can be served and it must be of the Märzen variety. This type is not fermented for long and may have an alcohol content of up to 6%, being stronger and darker than traditional beer.
What is Oktoberfest?
On 30 July Friendship Day is celebrated, a day to enjoy with those who love and care for us all year round!
What would we be without our friends? Our friends share our daily lives, our secrets, sleepless nights and of course, those party nights which are the source of so many conversations the following day and which, no matter how much time has passed, will always be remembered.
We at Elba Hotels know that taking a holiday with your friends is one of the best things you can do and that these plans are ageless. Discover how to celebrate with your friends on 30 July.
Why do we celebrate Friendship Day?
On 20 July 1958 a group of friends in Paraguay got together to celebrate the Day of the Tree. The doctor Artemio Bracho was the person who came up with the idea in his speech. At that meeting the World Friendship Crusade was formed with the motto “For a better and more humane world”.
Fuerteventura is perfect for a family vacation. In today’s post, we’ll tell you the best plans and tips for enjoying Fuerteventura with your kids.
Traveling to Fuerteventura is a family adventure in itself. Tour the dunes of Corralejo aboard a jeep, go on a small safari at the Oasis Park Fuerteventura or enjoy a quiet, charming village like Betancuria— these are just some of the tourist activities in Fuerteventura to do with kids.
The island of Fuerteventura is easy to see by car thanks to its size. Having few high mountains, it makes it possible to travel from north to south and enjoy a different way of visiting the island with kids.
What to do with kids on Fuerteventura
In the town of Pájara you can find the Costa Calma. Serene virgin beaches like Sotavento, the Viejo Rey beach, or Costa Calma beach are ideal for enjoying a bit of peace and quiet. However, nature also plays a role— you can go on an excursion to the Ajuy Cave or Cardón Mountain. Surely you can make great memories with the little ones on a bio tourist visit to the Oasis Park Fuerteventura.
Gay Pride demands diversity and sexual freedom in many Spanish cities. We’ll tell you how this movement came about and where to celebrate it.
No one should be ashamed of their sexual orientation. We should all be free to express ourselves and show who we are. These are the main demands of International Gay Pride, or LGTBI Pride. With this celebration, the group fights against marginalisation due to people’s tastes or sexual/affective identity.
The Meaning of Gay Pride
The origin of this initiative dates back to 28th June, 1969, when the New York police raided the Stonewall pub, a popular club within the LGTBI community; although at that time this type of raid was common, on this occasion the police lost control and the clientele rebelled. These actions led to a series of violent events known as the Stonewall riots, which marked the beginning of the commemoration of LGTBI Pride and, as a result, the fight for the rights of homosexuals.
Summer is upon us, and with it, the terrace season. We’ll tell you about the best spots to have a drink outside.
Speaking about Spain in summer is synonymous with its lively streets, people walking around and enjoying our cuisine and, of course, the atmosphere on the terraces and what keeps them going.
Terrace season has begun with the arrival of June, when bars and restaurants offer their services outdoors and when the most unexpected cocktails can be found at our tables. Elba Hotels will tell you everything you need to know about this new terrace season.
The sun, a beer and a tapa are the main charms of summer’s arrival. Terraces have something special, something that stops you from leaving them and that makes you come back the next day. Maybe it’s the music, the cocktails or the heat, but the reality is that the Spanish summer wouldn’t really be summer without its terraces.
Terraces for eating or having a drink
We’ll tell you all about 5 experiences you should try while in Lanzarote. You’ll be amazed by the undiscovered places you may find.
The Canary Islands offer a tropical climate and a variety of landscapes, making the archipelago one of the most idyllic enclaves of Europe Since 1993 the island of Lanzarote has been a Biosphere Reserve, a recognition paying tribute to its beauty and the importance of preserving its natural surroundings.
Let Elba Hotels tell you about 5 experiences you should try on your holiday and how they’ll make your trip perfect.
1. Submarine Landscapes
Deep in its clear waters, Lanzarote will show you from the very beginning that a great part of its beauty is found under the sea. Scuba diving is one of the most amazing experiences you can have, and there is wide array of these activities on offer.
2. Land of volcanoes
In Andalusia you can do every type of tourism, from rural tourism with children, an escape with your partner, to cultural tourism.
When we talk about Andalusia it’s impossible not to mention its fabulous beaches, its Mediterranean climate and the ‘chiringuitos’ on the sand, a delight for tourists during the summer months. But, Andalusia is much more than sun and sand, and much more than parties and ‘siestas’, perhaps this summer is a good moment to find out.
Beaches and Mountains in one location
Andalusia is the perfect destination for pairing tourism and sports. Its climate and earth present a great range of possibilities, the ocean and air make southern Europe the ideal location to practice water sports; like snorkelling or surfing, but you can also enjoy a boat trip along the Mediterranean waters. Cadiz, specifically, Tarifa, has become one of the most important places to surf or kite-surf in Europe.
