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

This area of the Costa del Sol is the jewel in the crown of Spanish coastal resorts. It offers local whitewashed villages, beautiful beaches and coastline, yet just a short drive into the mountains gives plenty of opportunities for discovering the natural beauty of the area. Hill walkers love this area particularly in the cooler months. 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.

Nerja - The pedestrianized cobbled streets of charmingly unspoilt Nerja has plenty of traditional whitewashed houses and local shops.

Built by the Moors over 1000 years ago, this ancient palace stands high on a cliff face above the river gorge and has magnificent views. The architecture of nearby Granada is also worth exploring to make the most of this day trip.

Great value in spacious house

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a very quiet area. It was very comfortable with a lovely enclosed balcony (but the awning was split). The wifi worked well all week. It was a steep 10 minute walk to restaurants on the beach, but you can work off the calories on the way back! Overall, it was great value and I would recommend.

Ideal location for Nerja Town

5 of 5
We stayed at Debbie & Ian's apartment for 4 weeks in January and had the most wonderful time. The apartment itself had everything you needed and was very warm and cosy for the evenings we decided to stay in. The terrace had the sun most of the day, so when we returned on a late afternoon, we could sit out and have a beer whilst playing Querkle. The apartment was about 30 minutes into the town, which was great for us, as we love to walk. Nerja is lovely with all its restaurants, tapas bars and coffee bars, so many to choose from, even in January. We were amazed how many people were about around the Balcon d'Europe, especially at a weekend, a real buzz. The weather, at the beginning of our stay, was quite cool, so we did a lot of walking into the mountains, we even had snow! Walking down from the mountains, we visited Maro, which was a lovely little village and we found a restaurant with very nice cheap food. First weekend, we took ourselves off to Seville for a few days, which was amazing, only 2.5 hours away by car. Definitely a city to visit! On our way back to Nerja, we visited Ronda, again definitely worth a visit. Want to go back and do some walking around that area. We had a day when it rained, so went to a shopping centre in Velez-Malaga, great fun! All in all we had the most fantastic time and would definitely go back to Nerja and Debbie & Ian's apartment. Thank you.
