This beautiful whitewashed Spanish town, famous for its aniseed flavoured liquor is the perfect retreat. There is a range of self catering accommodation in Rute on offer, and each one has everything that you need to feel as though you are in a home-away-from-home. Staying at a holiday rental cottage in Rute is especially for those people that would like to see a more authentic side to Spain, whilst at the same time maintaining their independence.

There are a wealth of activities that you can do whilst on holiday in Rute.

Your holiday rental cottage in Rute is almost in the exact centre of a square formed by the cities of Cordoba, Malaga, Granada and Seville. Each one of these cities has something to offer, and each one is worthy of a day trip. Granada is home to the Alhambra, a unique palace area that has gained UNESCO world heritage status. Malaga offers all that you might expect from a major resort city, and Seville and Cordoba both have a history stretching back hundreds, if not thousands of years. Certainly, each one deserves to be visited, and as mentioned before, a hire vehicle will aid you in this.
Whilst Rute enjoys a Mediterranean climate, because of its position, it is just slightly colder than coastal towns in the same region. That said, it is still considerably warmer than the UK at any comparable time of year, and drier as well! Summer is the most popular season for people wishing to take a holiday in Rute, with day time temperatures touching over 30 degrees Celsius at the hottest part of the day. Rainfall is quite minimal, with only a couple of days in each of these months having rain. Even then, it is a negligible amount. The winter time sees day time highs of 14 degrees.
Being central to an area surrounded by four major cities, there are a number of airports that can be chosen from to fly into. The best choice is most likely to be at Malaga (AGP). Here, flights arrive from many major cities on dozens of airlines. An example of some of the flights to and from the UK are Thomas Cook Airlines, easyJet, BMI Baby and Monarch, from airports such as Manchester (MAN), Newcastle(NCL) and London Stansted (STN).
