With such a low population density large areas of Aragon remain wild and relatively untouched with holiday rentals sometimes few and far between. It is a land of extreme natural contrasts, both in climate and geologically, from the green valleys and snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees to the dry plains and lonely hilly areas of the south.
Once a very powerful kingdom, it was the birthplace of Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII’s first wife. Aragon offers ski resorts, World Heritage sites and vast tracts of virgin countryside where lovers of nature and outdoor sports will feel they’ve died and gone to heaven. Holiday rentals in this area come in the form of farmhouses, gites and cottages, many of which are situated in places where excellent walks and cycle rides are right on your doorstep. If culture is more your thing, then there are some extraordinary medieval towns to visit.
