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.

Our host, Joaquin, went out of his way to welcome us and to ensure that we had a comfortable stay - he even brought us some home-made almond biscuits mid-week! We couldn't have wished for more. We can highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves one day.

A lovely house sympathetically restored with all requirements for the 8 of us. Essentials such as hot water was in plentiful supply and because it was so early in the year the open fire was a nice addition when we returned late at night. Beds nice and comfortable. Plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance although the house is in a quiet part of town. Small convenience store within 50yards discreetly placed between the properties. Its all a bit frantic when you drive up to the house first time....but take it easy, park and unload the car and all will be well. The welcome from the cleaner went all according to plan. Nice outside terrace on the roof that would be great in the summer. The local people are fantastic. We became friends with a few bar / restaurant owners, but you have to avoid the tourist traps as they are more pricy than the traditional eateries. That said it was a fantastic experience and I would stay again. Parking is a slight issue, there are places in town but we parked in the main free area down in the new town and walked up. I didn't kill us and was an interesting start and finish to the day. A slice of real Spain with easy access to tourist areas. I would recommend this property.

Arcos is a picturesque town, ideal for visiting historic towns on the Costa de la Luz and Gibraltar. I would recommend also renting the garage parking space offered.
