Make a holiday rental home or villa in Castell de Ferro, Spain your home away from home

Castell de Ferro is an almost perfect example of a quaint, traditional Mediterranean fishing village, and is a great choice of resort for those heading to Spain’s Costa Tropical. The village has a small population that swells during summer months, with both Spanish and foreign tourists looking to make the most of the relaxed atmosphere and convenient location; on a tranquil stretch of coastline and close to the villages and mountains of the Lecrin Valley.

Things to do in Castell de Ferro, Spain

As with many towns and villages in this part of Spain, Castell de Ferro is characterized by its narrow, winding streets and whitewashed buildings. The town square is the main focal point, with three of its sides dotted with shops, cafes and bars. There are also a number of restaurants to be found here, catering for a wide range of tastes. Nightlife is enjoyable without being too energetic, with the Bajamar disco pub the place to go for late-night action.

To the fourth side of the square is a pebble beach, and further beaches can be reached within just a few minutes’ walk. The coastline is dotted with small beaches, hidden coves and soaring cliffs, and is one of the most tranquil places on the Spanish coast. The waters here and clean and warm, making swimming a viable option throughout almost all of the year.

A number of activities can be arranged at the harbour, including aqua diving. You can also hire a sailing boat and head out onto the Mediterranean to enjoy far-reaching views of the rocky Costa Tropical.

Just a ten minute walk from Castell de Ferro is the small village of Gualchos. The short journey is rewarded when you reach the village, as it has its own mountain spring, which is believed to produce some of the freshest and cleanest water in the whole of Spain.

Places to visit on holiday in Castell de Ferro, Spain

Thanks to its eye-catching combination of mountains and sea, the Costa Tropical region of Spain has options to suit everyone. Big city lovers should head to Almunecar (38km), which has an abundance of tourist attractions, whilst more relaxing surroundings can be enjoyed by heading north to the villages of the Lecrin Valley, such as Otivar (43km) and Lujar (13km).

Weather in Castell de Ferro, Spain

The Costa Tropical gets its name from the sub-tropical climate in the region. This means that summers in Castell de Ferro are long and hot, with July and August often receiving temperatures over 30C. Winters are extremely mild and an equally good time for a visit. The year-round average in Castell de Ferro is just over 20C.

Flights to Castell de Ferro, Spain

Castell de Ferro is 104km from Granada Airport (GRX) and 109km from Almeria Airport (LEI), meaning you are almost spoilt for choice when it comes to getting to your Castell de Ferro apartment from the UK. Almeria is served by a greater number of airlines, but cheaper prices can often be found to Granada, so do your homework and get yourself a bargain!

Casa Chica - La Casa Bonita.

5 of 5
We stayed for ten days in June 2017. All four adults enjoyed our stay immensely. Not only the panoramic views, collage of sweet scented flowers but the orchestral accompaniment of birdsong. Casa Chica is tastefully built and decorated in true Spanish rural style. It is a haven from the pressures of life to sit on the rooftop terrace or by the pool and relax in sunshine. Casa Chica is truly La Casa Bonita. V.Forde, Dublin, Ireland.

Paradise

5 of 5
What a find!! Peter met us and took us to the property. We were wowed from the moment we arrived!! Position is great, quiet location but easy access to the village. We ate in La Almazara and Pizza restaurant in the central square twice, both very good and very cheap compared to uk. Facilities at 'The hole in the wall' are the best we have had in over 7 years in various places through central Europe!! Plenty of shaded areas throughout the day/eve. Patio is divine listening to a great selection of music slurping a drink or two. The pool was lovely, infact there was nothing more we could have asked for at this gem. We travelled in all directions during our week, and the beauty of the area with mountains all around us was better than ever we could have imagined. We are already planning a return visit so we can go up to Granada. Advance planning is needed to get tickets booked for the Alhambra Palace to avoid not being able to get in. A big thankyou to Peter and Carolyn for letting us use there lovely property, lemons were lovely by the way. Judy and Bob
