Conil de la Frontera Famed for its Mediterranean sunshine, delicious tapas bars and unique 'Pueblos Blancos', meaning White Towns, Andalusia is an stunning region of southern Spain. With its red hills, glorious weather, and authentic architecture, the region is the epitome of Spanish culture, with superb cuisine, wine, and music closely linked to siestas and relaxation. Located close to Portugal, holidaymakers can venture across the border to explore the neighbouring country, or sample the heady mix of Spanish and African cultures, landscapes, and wondrous sunshine. In cities such as Seville, a plethora of museums, galleries and ornate buildings are easily accessible, and steeped in religious history: they offer holidaymakers an authentic exploration into Jewish quarters, and invite you to marvel at the gorgeous churches.

It is not uncommon for visitors to be offered complimentary tapas in the bars in this region, and coupled with live performances on the streets, holidaymakers with a smaller budget can experience authentic Spanish traditions, culture and cuisine. Whether you choose to retire in a villa in Cordoba, or an apartment in Seville, HomeAway's list of Andalusia rentals ensures you find your ideal accomodation. Recreate a home from home experience as you take your daily siesta, before exploring the narrow and enchanting streets of this magical region.
