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

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.

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.

Gavin and his wife are very friendly. The swiming pool and magnificent view are absolutely amazing. One of the best houses we have ever rented. I will remember this house for a long time. Jan

We were a group of friends and we could not be more pleased with the stay, home and business. I must say that the photos do not do justice to reality. The owner is very friendly and helpful details with us and had to leave us a fact in Priego and oil also came from them. Definitely recommended.

The house is great, the pool gorgeous (and very large!) and the setting nothing short of spectacular. On top of all this sit Antonio and Rosario''s hospitality and kindness which are exceptional - second to none. Many many thanks."
