Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in La Herradura, Spain your home away from home

The tourist capital of the Costa Tropical, Spain, is the area surrounding La Herradura and neighbouring Almunecar. Although the Costa is far less known that its famous neighbour, the Costa del Sol, La Herradura, Spain is no less exciting than any of its Costa del Sol counterparts. Lying in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada, La Herradura is a hugely attractive village on an even more pleasant crescent shaped bay.

With 19km of varied coastline, visitors to La Herradura holiday villas are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches.

La Herradura is not only a beach resort. Rural tourism and agro tourism has begun to take off in La Herradura.

Almunecar, the sister resort to La Herradura delights visitors on three fronts. The beaches are a major draw, and have made Almunecar a vibrant holiday destination, and the rich history from the Roman ruins to the mediaeval castle of San Miguel and Almunecar make for fascinating viewing. However, it is the huge Loro Sexi Bird Park which draws the majority of visitors to a self catering La Herradura villa to make the trip around the coast.

Salobrena is a picturesque whitewashed village which sits in the shadow of a dominant Moorish castle. The fine beaches and idyllic traditional lay out have made Salobrena a real tourist favourite, and snorkelling, diving, golf and fishing facilities on offer too.

It really is one of those villas and locations that look as good as the photos show it on the website – it was so well equipped and spotlessly clean. We spent hours chilling in the pool during the day or relaxing on one of the balconies of an evening. Thank you too to Ivan and his family who were so helpful before and during the holiday – their recommendation we visit the city of Granada was spot on. If you’re looking for somewhere you can chill with places to go see on its doorstep, this villa is ideal.

Couple of minutes down the hill to the beach (best spots for snorkelling and less stones underfoot at either end of beach though). Pool was great. La herradura was quiet, very traditionally Spanish, lovely food and very reasonable prices. Would recommend to others and would return. Phil the landlord was very helpful, excellent communication throughout. Thanks, from the Hills!
