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.

The decor was done to perfection and there was absolutely everything you needed and more. The Hi-spec furniture and decor was simple yet beautiful with a Spanish twist. Everything was in very good taste and of high quality; the bed linen crisp and white, the bathroom shampoo and shower gel provided were lovely too, everything was very carefully thought out to perfection to the last detail. I would highly recommend this as a holiday destination. Ronda and it's surroundings were stunning, the jeep tour, wine tasting, olive oil tasting and ice cold swimming in the local rivers, were all refreshing, relaxing and enjoyable. El Olivar was the perfect get away, After a day wondering around Ronda there was nothing more inviting than returning to El Olivar for some cool drinks, tapas and a refreshing and rewarding swim in the turquoise pool. Thank you Team El Olivar!
