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.

Things to do in La Herradura, Spain

With 19km of varied coastline, visitors to La Herradura holiday villas are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches. With small secluded coves covered in sand, shingle and pebble beaches or large, fine sand beaches where water sports thrive, you are certain to find your little peace of heaven by the sea from La Herradura accommodation. Of the vast number of water sports available, scuba diving is one of the most popular, exploring the underwater world off the coast of La Herradura. When staying in a La Herradura holiday villa, rent windsurfing or sailing equipment or enjoy water skiing and para-sailing.

La Herradura is not only a beach resort. Rural tourism and agro tourism has begun to take off in La Herradura. The rich natural landscape is perfect for horse riding, (the stables in Taramay offer trekking, lessons and excursions), hiking and mountain biking. There are moderate trails or tough mountain trails into the Sierra Nevada for all three sports. Alternatively, you can take to the skies and try parapenting.

Golfing holidays to La Herradura are not the most well catered for, but if you are looking for a round one afternoon, the 18 hole golf course at Granada is an hour away, or there are two spectacular 9 hole courses closer by at Salobrena.

Evenings from a La Herradura holiday villa can be spent in a huge number of ways. There is frequent evening entertainment during the summer, and a range of fiestas which spring up throughout the year. Year round, La Herradura has jazz bars, nightclubs and bars which can become very lively!

Places to go on holiday in La Herradura, Spain

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.

Very comfortable, with a very well equipped kitchen (I think this is the only time we have ever had a fridge that actually keeps things cold!), and a pool warmed by surplus solar energy and there is also a lovely shaded dining area and bbq. Heike, who lives next door and looks after the property was very helpful but not at all intrusive. As the owner lives here in the winter months it feels like a home not just a rental, which is lovely. The situation is ideal for visiting the beaches or the Natural Park in the mountains and there are lots of hillside towns to explore (but some of the mountain roads are not for the faint -hearted!). Thoroughly recommended and we will hopefully be back!

                                                                                                Where to start? General stuff: the property is beautifully clean and all of the fixtures and fittings are high-end and very modern. There are lots of plates, cups/mugs, knives forks etc - we were a party of 6 for our 2nd week and we didn't run out once. The kitchen has both induction and gas hobs so will suit any budding chef and the fridge and freezer were both huge. The pool is salinated rather than chlorinated so there were none of the eye and skin problems that often happen when spending long periods in the water and although not heated it was beautifully warm. Every bedroom had it's own en-suite shower room and all were large and modern and very comfortable. Carlos and Arturo, (the gardener) were very helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for either of them. The gardens are lovely and I understand Carlos' mum is responsible for the design; she has obviously put lots of thought and knowledge into them. To be honest I can't say enough about this place - we have rented villas all over Europe and I really don't think we'll be able to beat this one - it is the most perfect place we've ever stayed and that is no exaggeration. The views of the mountains and the bay are wonderful - you can see the A7 motorway from the upper terrace and sometimes you can hear it but it really isn't enough to be intrusive. Thank you all at the villa for helping to make our stay so lovely - truly an experience we would like to repeat and for anyone else that is going to this villa - we envy you!!!

The description was certainly met as villa was very spacious, clean and well maintained and tastefully furnished with everything needed for a relaxing holiday including own pool. Great customer service. Thoroughly recommend.
