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

Wonderful setting, amazing gardens

5 of 5
Yet another wonderful stay in this unique setting. El Apartmento had everything we needed from a superbly comfortable king size bed to a dishwasher. The gardens are an absolute delight with shady spots for sunny days and sheltered areas for the breezy days. Motril is a lovely Spanish town and the A7 motorway (only 2 minutes away) makes the whole of the south coast from Almeria to Malaga easily accessible in around an hour. Patrick is the perfect host being available for any advice when needed but almost invisible at other times giving you the feeling that the property is all yours to enjoy and relax in. It is a truly unique setting with the beautiful gardens and I doubt you would find anything to beat it. We have already booked our return trip.
