Make a self catering villa in Alhambra, Spain your home away from home

Your villa at Alhambra is within easy reach of grand Spanish cities such as Granada and Sevile, which offer excellent architecture and a day of culture.

Things to do in Alhambra, Spain

Enjoy the Beaches - The nearest beach is within easy walking distance of your self catering villa in Alhambra, just 1km away. Burriana Beach offers plenty of watersports in the clear warm waters. The focal point of the area is the Balcon de Europa, a famous promenade at Nerja which is delightful to stroll along by day or beneath the stars after dark.

Mountain walking and Skiing - This area of southeast Spain is popular with hill walkers who can explore the mountains of the many national parks further inland from Alhambra. The caves at Maro are an interesting place to explore and there are several walking trails from there into the mountains. In the winter the Sierra Nevada mountains even offer skiing and snowboarding.

Wine and Dine - Dining out is still part of the pleasure of holidaying in Spain, if you can tear yourself away from the terrace of your Alhambra villa. Local rioja wines are excellent, or start the evening with a jug of fruit-topped sangria. The local bars serve tapas – small savoury appetizers, or sample the local seafood in a huge paella.

Mycket bra läge, nära till Mercadona (Bra mataffär) nära till stranden och lagom promenad ner Till centrum. Vi hade allt som vi behövde, jättenöjda! Kontakten med DI var verkligen bra! Vi kommer gärna tillbaka!!! B&R

                                                                                            4 of 5
                                                                                            We were looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday to unwind and recharge the batteries and this villa hit the mark. The pool was fantastic, made our holiday, being able to just jump in the pool when things became too hot, what a joy. Whilst dinning out most of the time, walking down to Barrera beach or taxi in to the centre of Nerja, we did also eat in; dinning on the balcony as the sun was setting, sharing a glass of wine. With the supermarket close by, it only took few minutes walk to pick up the essentials. The Villa was nicely furnished, clean and spacious and with air-conditioning in the bedroom it really helped to ensure a good night’s sleep. I would certainly recommend this Villa and will also look to return here ourselves.

The swimming pool was perfect and very private. The house was lovely and a great layout, three different terraces to relax on. It's a fairly steep walk back up from Burriana Beach if you don't use the car but the views and the excellent privacy are definitely worth it. Overall we would highly recommend the town of Nerja and this villa!
