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.

We wanted a reasonable holiday but got so much more than we were expecting as the accomodation was wonderful with everything that we required and more, in a beautiful location. The pool was perfect and so tranquil and on most occasions we were the only people there, such a relaxing holiday. The supermarket around the corner was stocked really well and extremely reasonable, it wasn't our intention to eat in apart from breakfast but we made some lovely lunches in the town house. Nerja was beautiful and we found some wonderful restaurants and bars that were extremely reasonable, we would walk into the town and get a taxi home later. Burriana beach was beautiful but not the best for us sun goddesses! The sand was very corse and fell away sharply as you went into the sea, probably better to keep your flip flops on, the sea was also quite choppy. If you want a sunbed on the beach, be warned you have to book a week in advance!! This is something we've never encountered before and something that I didn't think was very fair as most times you would see unoccupied sunbeds with a reserved sign on them!! We had the pleasure of meeting Di who is lovely, she helped us so much with our holiday planning especially by arranging for her friend Jo to do our airport transfers which were very efficient. Thanks so much Di for letting us use your beautiful town house which we fully reccomend, will definitely come back in the future!!

Nicely layed out and well designed with wonderful outside space and views. Very convenient for the local beach which is excellent for children plenty to do including all types of water sports from jet ski to parasailing. Would highly recommend
