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.

It was spacious and clean with stunning views from the large balcony. In our opinion the apartment was very well equipped in the kitchen and with towels and bedding etc. There was no kettle but we coped perfectly fine without one by using a pan to boil water. It is a couple of minutes drive to a beautiful beach and there a lovely park within walking distance. The area was very beautiful and we would definitely stay here again. The four of us had a wonderful time staying in this apartment - it became a home away from home. We would definitely love to return one day and can highly recommend it. Francisco was very friendly and even though he didn’t speak much English and we don’t speak Spanish there were no communication problems at all.

It is a very warm, clean and well-thought out home, with everything you need for a pleasant stay. As an example, I have never been at rental before where so many dishes were supplied. We love to cook, eat and drink, so this was greatly appreciated. There were four of us, and we found both master bedrooms (downstairs and upstairs) very comfortable and spacious, with lots of wardrobes/cabinets for storage. But, of course, the main feature of the villa is the view. It is simply second to none! It was amazing to wake up and watch the sunrise every morning straight from our bedroom window. Or we could come down and enjoy it with a cup of coffee through a huge window in the dining room. We did not use the outdoor spaces too much because of the cooler weather, but the numerous terraces and the pool area looked amazing. We can't wait to come back when it's a bit warmer! I can't say enough about the responsiveness and the great customer service - both by the owners and the property management company. We love the area as well, so we definitely plan on coming back!
