Make a holiday rental home or villa in Berja, Spain your home away from home

Located on the south-eastern slopes of the Sierra de Gador mountain range, Berja is a rural and traditional Spanish town where locals far outnumber tourists. Although facilities within the town are good, perhaps the biggest selling point of Berja is its location. 25km one way is the Sierra Nevada National Park, whilst 25km in the other direction are the beaches of the Costa de Almeria. There are few other places in South Spain that offer such diversity in such a short space, making Berja a great location from which to explore this unspoilt region.

Things to do in Berja, Spain

Berja has a strong history, and was an important town in Roman times, when it was known as Vergis. The local way of life has remained largely the same of the years, and Berja remains a small town that offers opportunities for a rural holiday in the Alpujarra Mountains of Andalucía.

Within the town are a decent amount of facilities, including small supermarkets, shops, cafes, and restaurants, so whether you plan to spend your holiday solely self-catering, or if you decide to eat out on a regular basis, you will not be short of choice. Tapas bars can be found in their droves in the town, with most providing free sharing plates when you purchase a drink.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The location was fabulous with the living room balcony overlooking the busy marina - sunsets to die for! Although we arrived late in the evening, we were met with a warm welcome and shown around the facilities. The apartment is well maintained and clean. the kitchen provides utensils necessary for basic cooking - however with the number of excellent tapas bars within minutes, eating in other than breakfast was a rarity!! There are numerous shops and restaurants dotted around the port, two blue flag beaches within an easy walk with long flat promenades for walking or cycling. Kite surfing, wind surfing, sailing, and scuba diving are all available to those interested, and good safe swimming (even in December). Bus stops are also within easy reach to both Almeria and El Ejido and very cheap, regular and to timetable compared to the UK. Wifi worked perfectly through out our stay. The owner responded to all our queries and questions promptly by email and phone. We would certainly recommend this apartment and look forward to returning - hopefully this year.

There was nothing to spoil this tranquiity. Robin was very generous and supplied more wood for the large living room fire as the evenings were getting chilly in October, the fire kept thenlarge bliving room warm. The Mill had everything we needed for our holiday and we feel very privilidged to have been able to stay in this magical place. We would have loved to stay longer and explore more of the area and would love to return.
