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

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.

Stunning Villa in a phenomenal location

5 of 5
Stunning Villa in a beautiful location. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful and no matter what you need they are on hand to support you, whilst also giving you full privacy and seclusion. We had a perfect family holiday here, ideal for families but would also be perfect for couples/adults only. The tranquillity and peaceful surroundings are something else, the scenary around the villa is magnificent and if you are hiring a car it's location is ideal to get around Andalusia to see the sights such as Seville, Cordoba, Malaga and the Costa Del Sol. Nearby there are many beautiful villages and towns, I'd advise learning some Spanish or brushing up on it, but well worth visiting them for food and drink and to absorb the culture. Many thanks to the Bradley's (The owners) for their hospitality and we hope to come back one day!!! Highly recommended if you want a relaxing holiday in fantastic surroundings!!!!

Perfect retreat

5 of 5
The pictures on this site do not do justice to the house. It is far larger than was expected and furnished in a comfortable, traditional style. Stepping into the entrance on arrival was a real treat but the bar and pool room were even better. Wifi, TV and DVD all worked well and were easy to operate. The outside space around the pool was just fantastic, plenty of lounging areas, a large table and a gas BBQ meant we ate outside every night. The mountain setting among the olive groves is lovely, it was just so peaceful, the silence only broken by the goat bells. Thanks to Claire for greeting us on arrival and explaining everything we needed to know. We had a fantastic week it was a shame we couldn't stay longer.
