It is a dilemma faced by holidaymakers everywhere: do you pick a beach break so you can get some well-deserved rest in the sunshine, or a bustling city break full of culture, bars and sights? Well, my answer would be: why choose if you can have both?

With a city break to Madrid, followed by a stay by the beaches of M laga, you really could have it all – and it just so happens that we have a very attractive holiday on offer which allows you to have your cake and eat it too! As always, we will make sure that the hotels and sights you choose have great disabled access. Holidays to Spain can be a little hit and miss when it comes to accessibility, but rely on the expertise of me and my team and you’re guaranteed to have a great time.

Madrid

While the Spanish authorities claim that they are doing everything they can to make Madrid a more accessible city, in reality they still have a way to go. The underground system is a bit of a write-off since only 50 per cent of its stations have wheelchair access and hardly any of those are in the centre of town, but the buses will cater to people in wheelchairs. Your best bet for getting around is to ask us to arrange a taxi with disabled access – we can have it ready at your hotel at a pre-arranged day and time.

On the plus side, Madrid is a fairly flat city, the pavements are level and most of the crossings have access ramps.

When it comes to accommodation, we have tracked down and personally checked a range of hotels to ensure they provide great disabled access. Holidays to Madrid can be made easier and more stress-free with a stay at a hotel from the Can Be Done portfolio:

  • Rafaelhoteles Atocha – the hotel has 4 rooms adapted for those with mobility issues – contact our team to secure one for yourself
  • Hotel Ayre Gran Col n

Seeing the Sights

All the major sights in Madrid offer disabled access. Holidays for those with mobility issues here don’t mean missing out on any of the sights, and I would suggest making time to see the Prado Museum (where wheelchairs are available to rent), the Retiro Park and the Royal Palace.

Hitting the Beach in M laga, Costa del Sol

Once you’ve had your fill of city living in Madrid, we’ll arrange a trip to the coast so you can spend some time in the very accessible city of M laga (it was recently nominated for an award for Most Accessible City in Spain). With smooth pavements, dropped curbs and a flat landscape, M laga is a wheelchair user’s dream. Add to this that the buses all have ramps and most taxis take wheelchairs and you might not want to go home.

Even M laga’s beaches offer disabled access. Holidays booked during the summer months will benefit from the city’s special ‘Enjoy the Beach’ programme, where extra assistance is offered to those who need it. For the rest of the year there are ramps, access walkways and accessible showers.

Of course there’s more to M laga than just beaches and the city has worked hard to make almost all of its cultural sights accessible.

M laga is widely known as the gateway to the Costa del Sol, and here you will be within easy reach of other coastal resorts including Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Marbella. Just ask us to arrange to get you there with minimum fuss.

Where to Stay

As you might imagine, there are a number of accessible hotels in M laga and I have personally checked out most of them, but the one I would recommend most highly is the four-star Hotel Ilunion. Close to the beach, the hotel has its own wellness centre including sauna, sensation showers and an indoor/outdoor pool.

A trip to Madrid and M laga will give you everything you need in a holiday – from a dose of culture and vibrant city living to the rest and relaxation of a beach break. So go on , give us a call and let us organise the ultimate city and beach holiday for you.

Tips For Shopping Online

1. If you're considering buying a product online, check out the reviews. The reviews using their company people that have used the product should be able to give you a good idea about the product. You may be able to find out the quality of the product, if this worked as described, and if you should create the purchase.

2. When you are searching for a location to buy a specific thing and not one of the results are most often from familiar retailers, you need to be hesitant about entering your information. Look for security signs from Verisign or Cybertrust, so that you know the retailer is not in the market to take your money.

3. Shop around when shopping online. You might find that prices for certain items can vary greatly from one store to another. To be sure you get the best deal, look at a few different stores to learn their prices, as well as shipping charge. This will allow you to obtain the best deal you are able to.

4. Although it may seem tedious, ensure you read the contract and terms before you purchase with a website. These documents have valuable information about what you can and cannot do when you have a problem with the item that you bought. Read them thoroughly to ensure that you do not have an unwelcome surprise when trying to come back items.

5. Find out the online store's return policy. In case you are considering making a purchase on an item that you might want to return, be sure you find out if returning the item is surely an option. Sometimes when you shop online, items cannot be returned and you do not want to be stuck with an unwanted item.
