Make a holiday rental home or villa in Los Gallardos, Spain your home away from home

With both the highest level of sunshine and the lowest level of rainfall in Europe, the Spanish region of Andalucia is a great destination for a family summer holiday. Set just back from the southeast coast of Spain, Los Gallardos is a typical Andalucian village which is situated close enough to the coast for a beach holiday, yet is also ideally located for several of the area’s luxury golf resorts. With a fantastic mix of accommodation, from traditional villas to wooden chalets, Los Gallardos offers a great escape for families and couples year-round.

Things to do in Los Gallardos, Spain

Although Los Gallardos is not situated directly on the coast, it is only a 10-minute drive down to the coast and the beaches which run alongside the slightly larger village of Mojacar. These pleasant beaches are a great place to relax in the summer, with the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea making a perfect place for families to swim.

There are also plenty of water sports on offer along the small stretch of coastline around Garrucha, also just a 10-minute drive from Los Gallardos. This includes leisurely activities such as sailing and fishing, as well as higher adrenaline options such as Scuba diving, surfing, water skiing and wind surfing.

Keen golfers will be kept entertained on holiday in Los Gallardos, with several world-class golf resorts located within a 10-minute drive, including the Cortijo Grande Golf Resort (5km away) and Valle del Este Resort (5.5km away).

Visitors should also be able to find plenty to occupy them in the evening around the local area, with several bars staying open late into the evening. Several of these bars are also a great place to sample the local tapas dishes, made from fresh local produce and including dishes unique to the region.

Well worth the trip. A little gem of a place.

5 of 5
We booked as a last minute trip to Spain as we decided to cancel our August trip camping in France. Whilst we have visited Spain before, this was a little gem. The apartment was exactly as described. It is in a complex of apartments with a really nice swimming pool that is respected by others and the gardens are immaculate. The apartment is above a restaurant and a bar, but I can honestly say that we didn't hear a thing. Even when sitting out on the balcony during the day/evening we were not disturbed by the surroundings. The apartment is very well equipped and was clean and tidy. The views across the sea are really really nice. The location is perfect. A very short stroll to the beach and then in the other direction the pool. Our kids loved both. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. We particularly liked the stroll to Garrucha in the evening where we mostly ate or along the beach front. There is a tourist train that runs around the area every evening so for those less mobile it is ideal. The water park regardless of some of the reviews on-line was actually very pleasant and we went for the late afternoon option which is cheaper and cooler. it was a perfect duration. All in all we loved Vera Playa. Another favourite was the beach area in Garrucha up past the port. We really liked this part of the beach and the sea was really clear as we did a little bit of snorkelling and hired a pedalo. Vera market was another favourite of ours and also a trip to Cartagena which is full of history and the catamaran trip was good. Of course as you can guess I cannot recommend the area and the apartment enough. It wasn't full of high rise buildings and the people were very very friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this apartment again.

Great value apartment in lovely peaceful setting

4 of 5
Communication with Ian and Linda was excellent throughout. The apartment was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The terrace balcony is very large and provides all day sun. The TV provided English channels which was great for catching up on Wimbledon and The Tour de France. Valle de Este Hotel was within walking distance and provided free wifi. The pool was nice and large with the grounds being well maintained. Assuming you have a car all self catering needs are fulfilled in nearby Vera. Great value for money and we would consider returning in the future.
