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.

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.

                                                                                                Spent two gloriously sunny & peaceful weeks in late September at Casa Los Linares. The house was more than large enough for our party of 8, but as we spent most of our time outside, it was the external space that made the stay so enjoyable. The pool was excellent - large & very clean - and the combination of open & covered patio space gave us ample room to spread out & relax. The location is beautiful, the house being surrounded by hills, with the view of the mountains to the east particularly impressive. As its a 20-25 minutes drive to nearest towns, we dined in every evening. The kitchen, though a touch on the small size is very well equipped, and the local supermarket in Rute was surprisingly well stocked - especially with fresh seafood - so we were able to prepare lots of extremely nice meals to enjoy at the outside dining table. And in the evening after dinner we could also indulge in a spot of star gazing as the lack of light pollution means the night sky is spectacular. Though the location is very quiet - the only disturbance being the daily passage of goats on their way to & from grazing on the hills - we found plenty of places to visit within an hours drive & also visited Cordoba & Granada (twice!) as they are both less than 90 minutes drive. All in all a great place to stay & chill, or to get out and explore central Andalucia, particularly if you like peace & quiet in a beautiful location.

The house is well situated with a supermarket at the end of the street ,and a few steps away there is also.a Mercado which also.sells eggs, bread, cold meats and fresh fruit and veg.The town has some good places to eat in the evening and the one in the square is next to a mirador which has a breathtakingly view! Car hire is needed here in this national park - the Subbetica -but it is a glorious area and we hope to return again.: i
