Make a holiday rental home or village house in Albunuelas, Spain your home away from home

Nestled at the head of the picturesque Lecrin Valley, Albunuelas is one of many traditional, whitewashed villages in the region that have well preserved their Moorish heritage. Whether you plan to spending your days walking and wildlife-spotting in the surrounding mountains, visiting the beach towns of the Costa Tropical or simply enjoying local village life, self-catering accommodation in Albunuelas can help you achieve your perfect Spanish holiday.

Things to do in Albunuelas, Spain

The beautiful Lecrin Valley, situated south of the city Granada, is home to a number of small towns and villages that continue to maintain a traditional Spanish way of life. Albunuelas is a fine example of such a village, with its whitewashed buildings with their Moorish influences home to families and businesses that have been in the village for many generations.

Many of the accommodation options in Albunuelas provide panoramic views out over the fruit orchards and unspoilt scenery of the Lecrin Valley. Many visitors head to this part of Spain to enjoy walking and hiking in these surrounding mountains, and there are plenty of designated trails to follow if this is your wish. Others are happy to stroll around the village and visit the shops, cafes and bars that line its cobbled streets, before heading back to their accommodation and watching the sun set with a glass of local wine in hand.

There is a small supermarket in the village, a Thursday morning market, and a local bread van comes around each morning, but if you prefer to venture out to eat you will discover that tapas is the order of the day in this part of Spain, and sharing plates are usually free when you purchase drinks in the local bars.

We don't want to be staying in a separate tourist part of a place, and felt part of the local life in lovely Nerja. The house is like a tardis, full of interest and beauty, the books, paintings and décor were gorgeous. What a lovely holiday we had. The beach was 10 minutes away on foot and local streets were full of cafes, shops and restaurants, a great find. Melissa was very welcoming and helpful.

Overall the apartment is well equipped with a great selection of books/dvds/games etc which was great in the winter nights - as well as having wide selection of tv channels . We will definitely be returning to Casa Fads just for the relaxing nights on the balcony

The views are amazing and it's very conveniently situated for the town and Burriana beach. We could not recommend this property highly enough and will return again in the future.
