Make a holiday rental property or villa in Catral, Spain your home away from home

Catral is a small town in the Alicante countryside, just a few miles inland from the famous beaches of Costa Blanca in the Orihuela region. Located on the edge of the beautiful El Hondo Nature Reserve, Catral has a natural, peaceful atmosphere, and despite its proximity to the white sand beaches of the Costa Blanca, tourist crowds are nowhere to be seen.

Things to do in Catral, Spain

Catral is a compact maze of streets, which hide a wealth of treasures from those simply passing through. The central square, marked by the beautiful Church of San Quan and the impressive town hall or Ayuntamiento, is flanked with twisting shops, filled with small shops and pavement cafes, where you can happily watch the world drifting by for hours. The summer months are a fantastic time to stay in Catral accommodation, as there are a great number of festivals and fiestas to enjoy. The feast of Saint John the Baptist falls on the 24th June, marked by a day of carnival style parades and open-air events.

No visit to a Catral property would be complete without an exploration of the El Hondo Nature Reserve. These protected salt flats are home to a huge number of migratory birds, and is carved by a huge amount of walking and riding trails. The park is especially beautiful, with numerous reservoirs, salt flats and ponds home to vast amounts of nature.

There are a great range of golf courses in easy reach of a Catral holiday rental property. As long as you manage to remember to pack your handicap certificate, arranging a tee-off time will be easy, and there are a range of magnificent courses to play, from short, scenic 9 hole courses to the more taxing 18 hole courses all along the Costa Blanca.

Places to visit on holiday in Catral, Spain

The town of Almoradi is the closest town to Catral, and offers some of the finest restaurants, shops and markets in the region. Anyone wishing to try their hand at cooking local cuisine or enjoy traditional festivals during the summer should certainly take the time to visit Almoradi.

However, it is the beaches of Guardemar (Guardemar del Segura) that will really excite visitors to Catral accommodation. Located just 10km away, Guardemar Beach is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Alicante, covered in fine, white sand. Many, many hours can be spent happily stretched out in the sun, absorbing the relaxed atmosphere with the sun on your face and the sounds of the sea filling your ears. Water sports are readily available from Guardemar too, making it the ideal beach resort to visit from a Catral villa.

Weather in Catral, Spain

The weather of Catral is a real joy. There are some 300 days of bright sunshine each year, with peak temperatures often reaching up to 40˚C from the beginning of June until the start of September. Rain is rare at any time of year, especially during the hot summer months where balmy evenings last long into the night.

Travel to Catral, Spain

A self catering Catral holiday villa is just 20 minutes drive from Alicante Airport (ALC).

Beautiful Villa

5 of 5
A beautiful Villa, well kept and excellently maintained, the hot tub on the roof is the icing on the cake. Great area close to bars and restaurants and the Italian over the road was excellent. Steve was extremely kind and helpful. Would highly recommend 😃

Absolutely perfect

5 of 5
We booked the apartment for a week following a week of study for me in Spain. My husband flew over and we took the bus from Alicante airport which was really easy. We were met at the apartment by Terry who ran through everything. Absolutely everything you could need was provided. The apartment is really central and there was no noise. Absolutely faultless.

Nice appartment

5 of 5
Apartment is well equipped with everything that you need and it's a short walk to bars and restaurants. Shame about the sun terrace as it is not South/SW facing so hardly catches the sun. Overall it is good value for money and I would recommend it. Robert the owner also responds well to any communication.
