Andalucia is the second largest autonomous community in Spain, but almost certainly the most attractive. Encompassing the provinces of Almeria, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaen, Malaga and Seville, Andalucia holidays are exactly what you make of them, as the diverse landscape caters for every style of holiday, activity and type of accommodation.

Andalucia is best known for beaches of its coastline. Boasting the Costa del Sol, the most famous coastal holiday destination globally, the Costa de Almeria, Costa Tropical and Costa de la Luz, taking a holiday rental in Andalucia will almost certainly involve some sand, sea and sun. However, the Atlantic Coast and the Mediterranean Coast have very different atmospheres, so an Andalucia apartment or property on the Atlantic coast, where surfing and culture thrive will be very different from an Andalucia holiday villa on the sparkling Mediterranean Coast, where luxury and leisure outweigh genuine Spanish culture.
The Costa de la Luz Huelva and the Costa de la Luz Cadiz are both Atlantic stretches, characterized by fine sands and more demanding water sports conditions.
However, the inland areas are magnificent places to take a holiday house or villa in Andalucia. The dramatic Sierra Morena and Sisstemas Beticos Mountain ranges which dominate the hinterland lend themselves ideally for a range of leisure activities such as walking, cycling, white water rafting, climbing, golf and horse riding holidays.

The capital of Andalucia, Seville is one of the most well loved places for holiday makers to take self catering accommodation in Andalucia. Granada, located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, is the ideal place to take an Andalucia cottage for culture, especially if you are on a skiing holiday.
