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.

The villa was wonderfully clean and well stocked with utensils and gadgets. Debby met us as we arrived and was very helpful and welcoming. We paid the extra to heat the pool. The pool was a little on the small side and too cold for me to comfortably swim in for any length of time (max temp of the water was 21 C). However, others managed longer. It was very pleasant to hang out there. On sunny days the roof terrace is great alternate place to hang out with comfortable seats and great views. The overall arrangement meant no one needs to get on top of each other but can come together for meals etc. The location is a 15 minute walk down to the beach and 25 min to the Balcony of Europe in the town. Longer on the way back but a taxi back from the town is reasonable 8 Euro. Overall, a great grown up family holiday villa.

                                                                                    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.
