Make a holiday apartment in Salamanca your home away from home

If you enjoy great food, beautiful countryside and discovering historic locations, Salamanca holiday apartments would be perfect for you. The province has a handful of cities that are packed with Renaissance buildings from the 1500s, immaculately preserved and open to the public. If you're a foodie then you could come to an apartment in Salamanca to sample the wonderful Iberian ham, which is regarded as one of Spain's top delicacies. There's a wide choice of holiday homes in Salamanca, with locations that vary from remote and scenic countryside, to the magical heart of medieval walled cities, surrounded by all the amenities you could need.

Things to do

-City of Salamanca. Considered one of Europe's most beautiful Renaissance cities, Salamanca is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must for any visitor to the province. It's also known for its university, dating to 1218, making it the oldest and most prestigious institution of its kind in the country. Many of Spain's leading cultural figures spent their formative years here. Historic sights are numerous in Salamanca, but Plaza Mayor and the Cathedral are not to be missed.

-Bejar. South of Salamanca, this lovely city was also enriched with Renaissance architecture in the 1500s. See El Bosque Villa, an ensemble of buildings from this period, complete with a lovely garden. The Ducal Palace is another Renaissance sight - it was built on a Moorish fortress, elements of which are still visible today. For more traces of Bejar's Arab past, visit the city's medieval walls, which are still in a good state of preservation.

-Natural scenery. Crossing the Salamanca Province from north to south is the ancient Via de la Plata (Silver Way). It's a route established by the Romans, and these days you can drive, walk or bike along portions of it. In sparsely populated areas you'll witness a landscape that hasn't changed much since Roman times, with remnants from those days in the form of bridges, forts and stone way markers. In the southwest of the province is Las Batuecas Natural Park, where you'll find mountains, steep valleys and waterfalls.

-Gastronomy. The exceptional cured ham of Castile-Leon is a source of pride, and in the Salamanca province there's a special variety - Guijuelo ham has a designation of origin. Pigs farmed here graze at 1000 metres above sea level, and eat only acorns and grass. The beef is also highly regarded, derived from the distinctive Morucha cattle. Other regional produce includes cheeses, made from sheep or buffalo milk.

-Day trips. To the southwest of the province is Ciudad Rodrigo, a walled medieval city with Spanish "historic-artistic" designation. Within the walls, which were laid out by Ferdinand II in the 1100s, are grand squares, palaces, numerous churches and a stunning gothic-Romanesque cathedral. Within Las Batuecas Natural Park is the gorgeous village of La Alberca, full of pretty stone and timber buildings.

Weather in Salamanca

Salamanca holiday rentals are found in a part of Spain with a continental Mediterranean climate, making for hot summers and cool winters. In the warmer months the weather is tempered slightly by the province's elevation, as well as the low humidity. Between June and September the temperatures peak above the mid-20s climbing to around 30 degrees in July and August. Autumn and spring conditions are mild, while winters can be cold at times. December sees temperatures averaging around five degrees, with lows of zero at night.

Travel to Salamanca

If you're heading to a Salamanca holiday home from Britain, then the nearest international airport is in Valladolid (VLL), 120 kilometres from the city of Salamanca. It's a small airport handling a few charter or low-cost routes from the UK. Another option would be to fly to Barcelona (BCN) and then transfer to Salamanca's own domestic airport (SLM). At two hours by car from this area, Madrid (MAD) is also an option. You could also catch the train from Madrid to Salamanca with Renfe, for a journey that takes around two and a half hours.

We had trouble finding the flat as the address wasn't on Googlemaps, so we kept having to call the owner for directions and he was unhappy because he thought that he hadn't been paid. We had to call our bank to check that we'd paid and he contacted Owners Direct who told him that he would be paid after our trip. Once that was sorted, everything was much better. We liked the flat, although it was a bachelor flat and there was no hairdryer. Otherwise, we had everything that we needed and the flat was nice and clean. When we left, I suggested that he should organise clear directions to the flat next time and to have a welcome pack with details of local supermarkets, doctors etc. which he was happy to do. The holiday was a great success after the initial misunderstandings. The town is beautiful and the food and drinks are of good quality and very reasonably priced. However, we didn't know how to contact Owners Direct when we were having problems and if we if we hadn't been able to contact the owner by mobile, we wouldn't have known what to do. Clearer instructions would be helpful.

                                                                                                  The owner arrived at the apartment a little before the agreed time (as did we). She gave us a very thorough explanation of all the apartment features, along with local maps and restaurant advice. The apartment is located across the river from the old town area – which is visible from the roof-top terrace. The walk to town is about 5 minutes across the historic Roman bridge. Because it is not actually in the old town, access by car is much easier. There is on-street parking available, but not needed as the apartment has a large, lock-up garage on the first floor. The flight of steps up to the main level of the apartment are a bit longer than usual because of the garage height and quite narrow. There was no problem getting the bags up because they have built-in an electric lift (dumb waiter) which does all the work. There is also a chair lift on the staircase in case anyone has mobility problems. The apartment has been recently renovated and they have done a great job of it. The living furniture is comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped (including dishwasher) and the main and en-suite bathrooms are well appointed. There is a small enclosed terrace attached to the kitchen (great for breakfast), and a large open terrace on the roof – with views across the river to the old town. The kitchen was stocked with all the usual condiments, the bathrooms provided with soap and shampoo, and there was also powder for the dishwasher and washing machine. The TV has Spanish channels only. WiFi internet access is provided, but it is a wireless service. OK but a little slow (and very slow at busy times for the network). The only issues we had were: (1) the lack of air-conditioning. We were there during a very hot spell of summer. Leaving the windows open at night was problematic as the road outside had light, intermittent traffic that went on well into the night. and (2) the small, firm main bed. We ended up sleeping separately in the main and second bedrooms. Neither of these issues were a major problem for us over the two days we stayed, but may grate a little more over a longer stay. Overall, it is a good apartment and well located. It suited our purposes very well.
