Brittany Ferries launches Spanish Parador Hotel offer – 4 nights from £219
They are the perfect base to uncover a hidden region of Spain where fine dining comes as standard.
In episode one of The Trip to Spain, Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan sailed on Brittany Ferries’ flagship Pont-Aven to northern Spain from Plymouth. Now the company is encouraging fans of the restaurant-review comedy series to follow in their footsteps by taking a ferry to Spain, to stay where they stay and to experience the culinary delights of the restaurants they visit during the six-episode series.
To help more people sample northern Spain’s gastronomic delights, Brittany Ferries has launched a range of Parador hotel breaks starting from £219 per person. The offer includes return cruise to Spain with a car from the UK, four-berth cabins on board and bed and breakfast in a choice of paradores in the beautiful regions of green Spain. Travellers can choose a four, five or seven night break.
One of the properties on offer – Parador, Sos del Rey Católico – is where Steve and Rob stayed in episode two of the series.
Paradores of Spain offer high standards of service and cuisine in unique surroundings and Brittany Ferries has more than 60 on its books to complement its range of sail-and-stay short breaks and holidays. Many are former castles, monasteries or palaces resonating with character and history which have been restored to their former elegance while incorporating many modern creature comforts.
They are the perfect base to uncover a hidden region of Spain where fine dining comes as standard. Restaurants like Txoko and Etxebarri might not trip off the tongue. But The Trip to Spain is putting these and others on the radar for screen-tourists seeking an alternative to the Costa del Sol this year.
Beyond the parador offer, Brittany Ferries offers three sailings a week to Spain from Portsmouth and Plymouth. Arriving into Santander is one of the most visually stunning approaches to any holiday destination with sweeping beaches framed by snow covered mountains.
The company also sails to culture-rich Bilbao, a ten mile drive from Michelin-starred restaurant Etxebarri . The restaurant, which also features in episode 2 of the Trip to Spain, has been described as “a point of pilgrimage for food nerds from around the world” by critic Jay Rayner.
