One of the most special weekends of all comes, because finally, yes gentlemen, the long-awaited summer solstice has arrived and with it, the magical night of San Juan.
And to welcome the summer season, our agenda is loaded with the most attacking plans. It is not worth complaining about the heat, or do you no longer remember your infinite complaints under the umbrella?
THE NIGHT OF SAN JUAN . The perfect plan to celebrate the most special night of the year? We believe that there is none preset … the point is to celebrate it! We can go to the beach, make a bonfire, burn our desires on a piece of paper - or throw them in the air with floating lanterns -, attend a party, celebrate a dinner at home …
To couples we recommend a different, quiet and relaxing plan for San Juan: a night between vineyards in the Boutique Hotel of the Property of Arínzano (Navarra). What better plan to say hello to the summer toasting with a good wine and in full disconnection ?
To complete the stay: a tasting paired with vegetables from their own garden, a ride in the SUV, a visit to the winery designed by Rafael Moneo, a breakfast on the banks of the river Ega, a tasting of Iberian wines with broths from the winery or a picnic outdoor. (350 euros per couple).

OF FESTIVAL. Why don't we drop by the Mulafest? The Festival of Urban Trends organized by MULA and IFEMA starts on the same Friday 22nd.
