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. Berja has been a wine production area since the 16th century, and trying the local offerings is a must.

Lots of good bars and restaurants nearby and beaches only a 5 minutes walk, and an excellent swimming pool in the complex. The apartment is immaculate with all necessary appliances. We had a wonderful holiday in Almerimar and we thoroughly recommend staying in this apartment. Thank you Annie. We hope to be back next year.
