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

Salobrena is a picture book town on the Costa Tropical, Spain. The white washed town clings gamely to a rock outcrop set slightly back from the coast, under the watchful eye of a magnificent Moorish castle, and surrounded by beaches and sugar plantations. A villa here is a great sporting destination in both winter and summer, but renting a property in Salobrena can be a purely cultural or beach orientated break too.

Things to do on holiday in Salobrena, Spain

A holiday villa in Salobrena gives you the enviable opportunity from October until May to ski during the day in the Sierra Nevada, an hour away, and relax on the long sandy beach in the evening. The ski resort is well equipped with snow cannons, so in the event of light snow, the ski season will still last. There are also a good range of nursery slopes and tuition for beginners if you have a mixed ability party staying in a Salobrena villa.

When you first arrive in a Salobrena property, a great option is to take a walk to the top of the hill and visit the Moorish Castle, not only to explore the magnificent building, but to get the best views of the whole area, from rugged mountains to the lush plains and sublime Mediterranean coastline. There are multilingual walking tours along the coast and inland, which provides first class information on the area as well as spectacular views.

Salobrena is a very cultural town, with not only fine restaurants serving tapas, seafood and local meats, but a year round concerts, theatre and film festivals.

The artificial reef build in 2004 has shown remarkable results, making a villa in Salobrena an ideal place for a diving or snorkelling holiday.

                                  Un petit Paradis

                                  5 of 5
                                  Magnifique séjour en famille dans cette très belle villa avec tout le confort. Une salle de bain par chambre, vraiment idéal pour que chacun soit à l'aise. Située sur les hauteurs, au calme, tout en restant proche des commerces. Très bons restaurants à Salobrena le long de la plage. A refaire sans hésitation! Petit bémol : assez bien d'escaliers donc difficile pour des personnes à mobilité réduite ou avec de très jeunes enfants

                                  Modern, spacious apartment in quiet mountain town

                                  4 of 5
                                  Beautifully modern and well appointed villa in a peaceful mountain town. First of all, we had two young kids under 8 but found the two bed apartment (feels more like a villa as over 3 levels) very spacious. The property itself has all mod cons and everything feels new and fresh. Velez itself was nice and typical for the region. I.e not touristy at all but all the better for it. Just about everything in the town closes from 2.3/3pm until about 7.30pm but again if you plan around siesta time you can get everything you need. Plus the locals are very friendly. There is one very good restaurant and several decent tapas bars in town, so while you'll need to go elsewhere if you're into nightlife it serves most needs. Big plus for the town is how near it is to either Granada (worth visiting for the Alhambra) and the beach towns. If visiting in the summer strongly suggest going to beaches as they are only 25 mins away by car. The climate much more temperate on the coast as we found going out and about with the kids during the day in Velez just hot for them. Good air con in the property however, so no issues there. A point to consider for anyone with kids is that the communal pool area is for residents. This means quite rightly there are very strict rules for use (I.e forget your kids taking inflatables in there etc and there aren't sun loungers if you're into sunbathing - you use your own terraces - there are two). So be aware, while our kids loved the pool for swimming, they couldn't jump in and splash about with water pistols like you could with a private pool. Plus the pool is closed during 'sleepy time' between 3pm and 5pm. Again, we just planned activities around it. Overall, the property was very nice, incredibly clean and extremely good value. Highly recommended.

                                  Magnificent views, pool, outside space and lovely clean interior!

                                  5 of 5
                                  We arrived after a delayed flight but we're welcomed by Dani who was very patient and explained everything in detail. We discovered the property was really well equipped with a whole manner of kitchen implements, pool accessories and plenty of space. The property is a little bit up the mountain but the views are worth it. The trip to the town is only a few minutes and there is a brilliant selection of places to eat and enjoy a drink within the town and by the beach. The BBQ area offers another place to relax as a family and has plenty of space for a quiet evening soirée. My family and I had an exceptional visit. I forgot to fill in the visitors book but I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a more Spanish experience with the focus on relaxation and fun. The owners we great throughout the stay, very attentive to our needs and made the whole experience seamless and idyllic. Thank you Graham and the rest of the team for a wonderful stay!
