Make A Holiday Rental Villa in El Bosque, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

If you are interested in staying in a small village which acts as a gateway to a nearby nature reserve, and is less than an hour’s drive from the Spanish coast, then a holiday in El Bosque could be just for you. The high rise hotels which one associates with Spain are thankfully absent here, and instead, a holiday rental villa in El Bosque is the best form of accommodation to take. Fully equipped with everything that you need in order to feel comfortably at home, it makes for a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding region.

Things to Do on Holiday in El Bosque, Spain

El Bosque is often called the gateway to the Sierra de Grazalema National park, and this offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. A walking permit and route maps can be had from the parks office, which is based in El Bosque. The park also has some good fishing and hunting, if you are so inclined. For other activities, a trip to the coast from your holiday rental villa in El Bosque is less than an hour away, whether you head towards Cadiz or Marbella. Here, swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing number just a few of the activities that you can undertake.

Places to Visit on Holiday in El Bosque, Spain

As already mentioned, the Sierra de Grazalema National Park is very close by to your self-catering accommodation in El Bosque, and at least one day spent there is recommended. As well as the walking tracks there are opportunities to see some amazing wildlife. Farther afield, the cities of Cadiz and Marbella are less than an hour away. Cadiz retains much of its historical charm, whereas Marbella is a good place to sit in a café to do a spot of people watching, especially by the marina areas.

Weather in El Bosque, Spain

If a holiday in EL Bosque is looking attractive to you, then you will certainly be interested in what the weather is likely to be like. The climate is a Mediterranean one, and enjoys mild winters.

Night time temperatures can be 20 degrees, and the daily peaks can exceed 33 degrees during July and August. Rainfall is quite minimal throughout the year, and not really worth consideration. Self catering accommodation in El Bosque can be booked all the year around, with summer being the most popular.

Joanna and her dog Ozo were friendly hosts. The garden is a generous with mandarin trees and other fruits. Ozo played with our youngest dog and there where plenty of space to go around with the dogs. The casa was wonderful with very equipment kitchen and a washing & drying machine. There are two bathrooms, which is very comfortable, but the water pressure was a little weak. There is no curtains or shutters in downstairs, which bothers us a bit, because we are use to privacy. Wifi worked well enough and that was very important to us, because we teleworking. That period were very cold (in particular nights and one day there where even 10 cm snowing). We bought a pellets heating (4 €/15 kg, we used about 20 sacks) and gas to warm water (gas is quite cheap in Spain) and also we paid the extra money (150 €) for electricity. The rural village is a beautiful with very friendly people and there are also some shops where you get some basic food items. It was a bit hard to drive around, because the roads are narrow and curved. We have a 5,4 m long van and it takes us about 1 hour to drive for the first 30 km in any direction. The vehicle is must.

It was a clean and spacious house although if staying there in winter be prepared for it to be cold with some problems in initially heating the house. It was very cold on arrival and fuel for the wood burning stove (not provided) was essential as the air con heater did not heat the living area sufficiently. The only other difficulty was that the kitchen could have been better equipped - no kettle, only one wine glass and few good kitchen knives. However, any problems we had were quickly dealt by the owner and our five days spent in Prado del Rey was great. Many of the locals were very friendly and made us fell part of the this very pretty and welcoming community.

The service was unbelievable - Julie and Warren not only ensured all possible amenities were available but always at a first class standard. Although they must work so hard to maintain such an impeccable quality, they never failed to find the time to help us in every way possible as if they had all the time in the world and made us feel so welcome that we felt part of their family. Casa La Parra is a beautiful place and is ideally situated between Malaga and Seville. We hired a low cost car for our stay and Julie (the owner) advised us about all the best places to visit and my goodness, we certainly went to some stunning places and enjoyed so many delicious meals for an absolute pittance! The hospitality was most enjoyable aspect of our stay and the worst was not being able to stay longer!
