Make a holiday apartment in Nijar your home away from home

Nijar holiday homes would provide the comfortable and homelike accommodation for a delightful family holiday in the Almeria area. There’s lots to see close by, from the traditional ceramics industry in Nijar, breathtaking natural landscapes of the Cabo de Gato and the fascinating Moorish history of the city of Almeria. For beachtime Nijar apartments are in a handy location, with a fine choice easily reached to the east, south and southwest. Families have a wonderful choice of accommodation here in buildings that have been whitewashed in the traditional style, but many apartments in Nijar are also more intimate and designed for couples.

Things to do

-Beaches. One of the best places to experience the Mediterranean in the Almeria area is Las Salinas, a Blue Flag beach with golden sand and moderate waves that make it great for sports like windsurfing. Closer to Nijar is Los Genoveses Beach, a stunning natural beach accessed via a path that wends its way through dunes and scrub. It’s a kilometre in length and has calm waters, great for swimmers.

-Natural scenery. The town of Nijar is just to the north of Cabo de Gata Natural Park, the largest protected coastal area in Andalucia. It’s a mountain range next to the sea, with precipitous cliffs, steep gorges and a wealth of caves and sheltered beaches. The sea here has lots of small outcrops and islands, while the waters are known for their excellent clarity and thriving nature, which makes diving and underwater photography especially popular here.

-Family attractions. Thanks to the arid landscape, the Almeria area became a favoured shooting location for westerns in the 60s – many of Sergio Leone’s best works were filmed here. The original sets have been preserved and form the basis of the Mini Hollywood theme park, where you can watch a range of live shows with stuntmen and horses. Also at this attraction is a zoo and museum devoted to film.

-Local culture. Nijar is a town with a strong reputation for its handicrafts. The local ceramics industry has thrived since Arabic times, and the pottery created at several workshops around Nijar is still infused with Moorish designs. When it comes to heritage, you can head for Plaza de la Constitucion, where the Church of Santa Maria has a 16th Century tower that was originally constructed as a defensive lookout.

-Almeria. This city was established in the 10th Century by the Moorish Caliph of Cordoba as a harbour and coastal defence. All around the Almeria you can spot buildings and other remnants that point to its Arab past – the Alcazaba castle is from the 900s and dominates an entire neighbourhood of the city with its triple defensive walls. The cathedral was also originally a mosque, and still retains hints of this former status, blending them with renaissance architecture from the 1500s.

Weather in Nijar

Nijar has a dry Mediterranean climate, with just shy of 3000 hours of sunshine a year. Rain occurs almost entirely in the winter months, with extended wet spells almost unheard of in summer. If you come to a Nijar holiday rental in the warmer months then it’s worth being prepared for hot weather. Temperatures exceed 30 degrees regularly in July and August. Even early and late-summer gets highs in the mid to high-20s. The rest of the year is pleasantly warm, apart from the three winter months of December, January and February, which are mild, with highs of 17 degrees.

Travel to Nijar

Almeria Airport (LEI) is the airport used by most people visiting holiday homes in Nijar. It has connections to numerous cities in Britain, generally via budget airlines, with traffic that is heaviest during the summer. The AP-7 Autovia del Mediterraneo is a toll road that will take you all the way to Nijar from the airport, and the drive shouldn’t take more than 25 minutes from the terminal. Public transport is quite limited here, so use of a car is recommended. Almeria is served by long distance trains and bus routes, linking it with the major Spanish cities.

The beach house is just beautiful and the perfect setting to explore the park...if you make it that far... Myself and partner plus grandparents and 3 children stayed for a week and as other reviews mentioned, found it difficult to think of anything better than strolling to the beach and enjoying the April sun on the fantastic roof terrace! Saying that, we did make it to mini Hollywood which was great fun and the Tabernas desert stunning to see. Also worth sticking your trainers on for a scramble up from Agua Armaga's beach to the old mine/tunnel for amazing views as well as a scramble down to playa Los muertos up the road with some of the clearest waters I've seen. The town is peaceful and beautiful and we really fell in love with the place. The house was a brilliant location to take our 5 year old and 22 month old twins being literally a minute from the beach. It was so easy to just stroll down there with them without having to pack up a million things and they could have spent the whole day playing with the sparkly sand. The house is kitted out with lots of creature comforts and things for the kids. It's beautifully decorated and maintained and it was a real delight to make such a stylish home there for a week. It was a pleasure to be surrounded by so many of Matthew Weirs lovely ceramics inside the house as well as enjoying them in the beautiful tiles of the main square just seconds down the road. Our little ones loved eating their ice creams there after dinner as they watched with interest the local kiddies showing off their Spanish football skills. I feel lucky to have stumbled across casa nana and really hope to visit again and explore the area some more...Thanks for sharing your beautiful home from home Ellie and family!

The accommodation is clean and well equipped and the double bed very comfortable. The apartment has a private terrace with mountain views as well as a shared terrace with pool. We did many walks in the area and the beaches are stunning. I would definitely recommend this apartment to others.

It has Spanish architecture and is well equipped throughout, with thoughtful and artistic touches that makes it feel like a home. The sofas and mattresses are good quality and comfortable.
