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.

This includes a water park and a number of golf courses.

Wonderful view over the wetlands to the deserted beaches from the stoep. Saw many kites and other rapters in the mornings. It was a great 7 days break of warmer days and especially nights from the normal winter coolness of our Casa in the hills north of Velez Malaga. We are definitely hoping to go back for another week before our winter ends. Our thanks to Stella and to Pete

                                                                                                      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.
