Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Calahonda, Spain your home away from home

Located in the Spanish municipality of Motril in the central part of Granada Province, Calahonda is a touristic bloom that is only just blossoming into a world class resort. This town owes its origins to its port and while its harbour is still a key attraction, Calahonda has so much more to offer the fun-seeking traveller. The usual seaside pastimes are available in this Andalusian town alongside plenty of other activities and there is a lot to see, so visitors need to plan their time wisely. In terms of accommodation, all sizes of groups and purses are taken care of comfortably. There are spacious beachfront apartments with spectacular views and swimming pools and detached villas big enough for a group of seven among many other options.

Things to do on holiday to Calahonda, Spain

A visit to this coastal locale opens the starry-eyed holidaymaker to an abundance of possibilities. Enacting the typical postcard scene of a sunbather zoned out underneath a parasol, sunglasses and layers of sunscreen is understandably the priority for most people who visit Calahonda. And few places in the world offer conditions more suited to this activity (or rather, inactivity) than the beaches of this town. While visitors thus splay themselves and abandon their worldly cares, their children can seek entertainment in the kids’ play area.

When night falls, Granada’s coastline comes alive with a number of bars and beach clubs opening their doors to revellers. Even those who are not dyed in the wool party animals will find themselves joining in the party; mingling and making merry till the wee hours.

Calahonda is dotted with a number of caravan and camping sites, so those who find their holiday incomplete without a tented stay and the smell of bonfire smoke have plenty to look forward to.

                                                                                                      This was a great holiday bungalow ,very spacious,with two good size bedrooms and a third room with a single bed . The villa was very comfortable and homely with fantastic kitchen and laundry facilities , more than you usually find but great when you do a lot of cooking. The TV and Internet were brilliant . The villa was surrounded by gardens and sun deck with plenty of comfortable garden furniture and sun beds. Also present was a large brilliant gas BBQ a must as my husband loves to cook on holiday. Through a garden gate you walk out onto communal gardens and large pool shared between 12 villas. On average there were us and one or two others around the pool at anytime . The villa is very secluded and in a private gated small complex, where the villas are not on top of each , great for any type of family. Location is good , 5 minute walk to the "strip" with a variety of restaurants . A 10 minute walk to supermarkets and shops. A bit further, 15 mins walk to local beach. We always hire a car but you could easily stay here without one. The owner was very helpful,friendly and a good communicator , and so was the guy who looks after the property . I would highly recommend staying here.
