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.

Laid back would be a good description of him but nothing is too much trouble. It helps if you are a little laid back too, and being a dog-lover is a must as Ollie's two lovely little terrier crosses are regular visitors. Pepper and Gomez (who lost a hind leg in a fight with other dogs 3 years ago but whose spirit is indomitable). The cottage and garden and picking oranges for breakfast juice every morning are special treats. Good weather helps of course and we shall return. Ollie has lived here for many years and is a reliable and wise source of local information. Cool nights are compensated by a super open fire and dry logs. Sublime! Difficult to find much to criticise but beds are not particularly comfortable and next time we shall bring our own pillows! Thank you Ollie.

It was clean and fresh and we were able to settle in immediately. It is situated in the Barrio Alto so is quiet at all times of the day and Orgiva has a very relaxed feel about it. We stayed for the month and were well situated for walking in the Alpujarras walking many a path in the Poqueira Valley and the Taha towns with a wonderful backdrop of the snow covered Sierra Navada. The almond trees were in full blossom on the mountain terraces and it was truly a wonderful experience. The Costa Tropical is only a short drive and both Salobrena and Calahonda are a delight to visit. Malaga and Granada are within easy reach for more cultural visits to Museums and Galleries. We didn't have one disappointing day. Kate was very responsive when we had a problem with TV reception and we were able to watch England beat Wales! A great holiday.
