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.

Things to Do in Cabra, 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.

Roger and Elizabeth are top of their game. Everything in the rooms are 'just so' . We were in the 2/3 bed apartment with its own terrace and access to pool area. So quiet!!!!!!!!. Roger and Elizabeth gave us a tour of their adjoining property 'Casa Limon' Vivienda Rural VTAR?MA/01351. You can enter from road level via the front door into the Kitchen Living area, or you can enter at 1st floor level via the side of the property as the property is built into the hillside, then you have separate unimpeeded access to the pool, which is kept immaculate. Roger & Elizabeth are well respected in the locality, this was clear when we walked down to the 'locals' 2 bars a 1/4mile away. Roger knows all the places to have meals and drinks at local prices not tourist prices. His knowledge is second to none.

                                                                                                    The apartment is in good decorative order and can sleep six without resorting to a sofa. The setting, in an olive grove, is idyllic. The surrounding rolling countryside is all olive trees and vines, and the whole vast area is surrounded by distant mountains. It is really quiet. However, November may not be the best time to go. We had seven days of rain, and it was VERY cold, particularly at night. Gavin and Jermena, who live next door, were really kind and helpful, and provided us with an electric heater when we asked for it. If the weather had been better we would have done more travelling. Córdoba is very do-able and worth it. Seville is probably possible in a day, with an early start, likewise Granada. There is a major supermarket 15 minutes drive away, which is worth a trip in itself! If the sun shone, you wouldn't want to leave the apartment.
