Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Cabra, Spain your home away from home

Cabra in Spanish means “goat” but the town was more likely named after the 10th century poet Al-Cabri than the animal. The town has an Arab heritage with a history dating back to pre-Roman times. It has a Moorish Castle and other interesting buildings, convents, palaces and churches making holiday rentals in Cabra the ideal base for enjoying this unspoilt area of Andalusia.

Sampling the local cuisine is part of the pleasure of staying in Cabra holiday rentals. Take time to sit at a café in the Plaza de Espana and try the sweet pastels, bizcotelas and pestinos. The hearty local cuisine is delicious – just order “un plato tipico” to get the house specialty which will be a savoury meat and vegetable dish. Pleasant walks can be enjoyed along the former railway known as the Subbetica Green Pathway or in the nearby natural park. Explore the local parks to see statues of local heroes amidst the flowers and fountains of the Alcantara Romero Park. Stroll up the main street to the castle and look for the “Tizon” fixed to a column. It is said to be the sword of the legendary El Cid Campeador. Horseriding, nature spotting, kayaking and scenic drives are all available here.

We had such a fantastic time at Casa Feliz. Giulia and Steve were perfect hosts. I can't thank them enough for such a beautiful holiday. The location was picture perfect. Can't wait to return.
