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). Alicante airport is bombarded with direct flights from across the UK on a daily basis, especially during the summer, provided by a great number of airlines operating out of the UK. It should be very easy to find a cheap and convenient flight to Alicante from the UK, and there are plenty of car hire options from the airport.

Delightfully spacious and welcoming.

5 of 5
We had a fabulous time and Joanne and Chris' Villa. Their instructions from start to finish were spot on, and communication throughout was excellent. We are a family of four, and really enjoyed the very large pool ( by far the biggest private pool at any villa we have stayed at). The pool was well maintained and the sun beds excellent. On arrival the Villa was lovely and clean, with three air-conditioned bedrooms. As our two girls shared a room, we did use the third bedroom as a dressing room , which was quite a luxury, especially for Mum. The Villa was very well equipped with loads of crockery/cutlery/utensils/glassware/cookware etc. Games, books, playstation, TV (none of which we used , but they were there), so lots to do. Washing machine was very welcome too. Outdoor space, bbq and terrace areas were great with plenty of seating and cushions for all the chairs and more. We really liked using the bbq. Villa is well located for local shops and restaurants. We don't drive, but the local Taxi company Taxi Ciudad Quesada was excellent. Restaurants to mention were The Patagonia Steak House (Grill), Chef Zhan (Chinese), Restaurant Goyos ( mediterranean), Spice Hut ( Indian) and Yoku ( Japanese/ Thai/Asian), all within 10/15 minute walk from the Villa, and all excellent. Guadamar only a 15 minute taxi ride has a great beach, and lots of restaurants on the front. Girls' especially liked the market stalls selling an array of wares. The Villa was also really close to Lidl (5 min walk) and Masymas (10 Min walk). We favour the Mercadona, which was five minutes in a taxi to Benijofar. My daughters visited the Habaneras Shopping mall too, and which has the Ozone Bowling next door, and plenty of shops and restaurants, and also a huge Carrefour supermarket. We have been visiting this area for many years and have stayed in multiple Villas over the years. We would definitely recommend this villa for families wanting a relaxing holiday, with plenty to do nearby. Thank you Joanne and Chris.

Another fantastic stay at a fantastic villa

5 of 5
This is the third time we have stayed at Villa Crispin and each year there have been small but welcome improvements. This year we found swanky safety-glass around the balconies which gave the villa a more modern look, a safe had been installed for all valuables and new sunbed cushions. I'm not sure there is anything left I would suggest for improvement! The pool was a little cloudy on arrival due to the previous occupants, but this was sorted out very quickly and efficiently by both the owner and the local pool cleaner and within 48 hours it was sparkly again. If you're looking for a villa in a quiet, peaceful location (car hire pretty much essential) within 25 minutes of the coast and are after a good standard of accommodation, then I would highly recommend villa Crispin. Steve and family
