Enjoy festivities in a magical part of Spain
Leave behind the cold and grey. Instead, spend the festive season on Spain's beautiful Costa Brava. Enjoy Christmas with all the trimmings at the four-star Alegria Pineda Splash Hotel, situated in the pretty and historic seaside town of Pineda de Mar. Visit fascinating Barcelona on Christmas Eve and take a Christmas Day tour of the dramatic 'Wild Coast'.
Pineda de Mar lies in the heart of a picturesque coastline of rocky coves, quaint fishing villages, golden beaches and attractive resorts; an area that's especially beautiful in the winter time, when the summer crowds have long gone. The town has a good selection of shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants as well as squares and gardens to explore.
Travelling by comfortable coach, today we'll leave your pick-up point and make our way to the Channel. We'll continue through France, and break the journey with an overnight stay in a convenient hotel.
Today you'll arrive in Pineda de Mar, at the Alegria Pineda Splash Hotel. Spend the rest of the day exploring the town or relaxing in the hotel.
Barcelona is one of Europe's 'must-see' cities. Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, the Gothic Quarter, renowned pedestrian street La Rambla, and 1992 Olympic Games sites are amongst its highlights. Hunt for last-minute gifts in a famous shopping mecca and discover delightful Catalan Christmas traditions.

An optional excursion today brings the chance to visit the fabled monastery at Montserrat. A centuries-old place of pilgrimage, the mountainside monastery is accessible by a winding road or a cable car, and the views from its lofty perch are outstanding.
Bid Pineda de Mar farewell and board the coach to begin your homeward journey. Once again, we'll spend the night in a comfortable hotel in France.
