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

Pizarra is a small farming village that sits on the Guadalhorce River in the Malaga province of Spain, and has so far successfully managed to avoid being absorbed by the sprawling of its bigger and more famous neighbour. This means holidaymakers in Pizarra can enjoy the best of both worlds – a traditional Spanish village base set amongst glorious rural scenery, but also the amenities and attractions of busier tourist areas just a short distance away.

Things to do in Pizarra, Spain

With stunning mountain views and a serene atmosphere which is a far cry from the hectic lifestyle of other nearby towns and cities, Pizarra is a great destination for those seeking a laid-back break. The area is extremely rural and ideal for those who are happy to spend large chunks of their vacation relaxing in their holiday rental apartment or villa, soaking up the great weather that the region is famous for.

Despite its relatively small size Pizarra still possesses a good array of amenities, with bars, restaurants, supermarkets, shops, a post office and an information bureau all to be found within the village. There is also a regular food market, and those seeking an independent self-catering holiday will be particularly at home here.

The main attraction in the centre of the village is the Municipal Museum, a fifty year old collection of local and archaeological artefacts, some of which date back to the Roman and Moorish eras. The collection was formerly the property of American painter Gino Hollander, who once lived in the village and gave away his entire collection when he left and returned to his home country.

Places to visit on holiday in Pizarra, Spain

Those seeking somewhere a little more vibrant have just a short distance to travel.

The packed beaches and family fun of Torremolinos is also a similar distance away. Closer to base, consider a day trip to Coin (20km), which offers both modern attractions and a rich history.

Fabulous views from the terrace and so close to all the amenities. The restaurants and bars really are around the corner and all that we visited were great especially de Knapp. The town is very hilly though so please bear this in mind. The train station is very accomadating and cheap for the coast but it will take an hours journey from alora to torremolinos not including your time from your place of stay. We stayed in this property with the intention of looking at others while we were here and we can say that it was lovely and amazing value. We had a couple of issues that were quickly rectified. All in all a fabulous property

Set in a traditional Spanish village which offers everything you could want in the way of bars, restaurants, culture & history. The food welcome pack was very welcome, especially considering our late arrival time. We had many an enjoyable afternoon & evening on the fantastic roof terrace, relaxing in the hammock & drinking Rioja. Thank you for a very enjoyable break, we hope to visit again soon!
