Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Sierra de Grazalema, Spain your home away from home

The Sierra de Grazalema is an area of outstanding beauty in Andalucia, Spain. The region was Andalucias first national park, gaining the highly coveted status as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 1977. The landscape of the Sierra de Grazalema is absolutely breathtaking, with awe-inspiring limestone cliffs, caves and gorges interrupted only by glistening pueblo blancos, (traditional whitewashed villages), which offer a fantastically peaceful, scenic spot to relax in the Andalucian countryside.

Things to do in Sierra de Grazalema, Spain

The spectacular landscapes of the Sierra de Grazalema are a huge attraction. There are spectacular sights to see in every direction from a holiday rental villa in Sierra de Grazalema, with Andalucias largest cave system and the staggering Garganta Verde gorge being among the most beautiful sights in the whole of Andalucia. The park is carpeted by a huge range of plant and tree species, including an extremely rare Spanish fir forest. The landscape provides ample opportunity to rock climb and abseil, with guided trips easily arranged from Sierra de Grazalema accommodation.

Much of the park is so delicate that visitors are tightly controlled, and in these sections, you can only walk with authorised guides, who will also help point out some of the more impressive wildlife, including the impressive black vulture. The birdlife in the park is absolutely incredible, with the Sierra de Grazalema home to the largest colony of tawny vultures in Europe, as well as an amazing number of eagle species. Europes largest bat colony can also be found within the Sierra de Grazalema, as well as wild boar, stags and genets.

There is a small shop and a bar in the hamlet that is 5' drive down the track from the villa on the main road The villa is clean and spacious with a pleasant garden surrounded by fields. The pool is a good size, and an equally welcome feature is the tower room, which even on the hottest days provided respite from the Spanish sun. Highly recommended for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

The apartment was clean and well-equipped. Warren was especially helpful with IT issues we experienced! Julie provided us with helpful tips as we made our way to Seveille, Jerez and the white towns in the area. There are many fruit trees on the property...unfortunately for us the fruit was still ripening. We did appreciate the bottle of wine that Julie had waiting for us. The property is at the edge of the village and it was convenient to walk to the main square where the stores and restaurants were located. Thank you, Julie and Warren!

This rental was perfect for sharing – the kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything one would need should you wish choose to prepare your own meals – we prepared all our breakfasts and a few suppers as well. And there is even enough room for those husbands who always seem to be under foot. This property is built into a cliff overlooking the valley and fields beyond – the view is amazing. The home has several levels and outdoor living is emphasized through the availability of numerous patios – it was difficult to decide each day where we would enjoy our breakfast or morning coffee. In the evenings we would sit outside enjoying a bottle of wine and the mornings, enjoying a cup of coffee, planning our day’s adventures, while watching the sun rise over the mighty hills of the Sierra de Grazalema. Both bedrooms were on the second floor separated by a large common room. Access to the top level balcony was available through either the master bedroom or common room – have I mentioned the view was amazing? The kitchen, dining room, living room (with two separate sitting areas) and powder room were situated on the main floor with outdoor access to the small pool and yet another patio. The pool was only large enough to enjoy a dip – very refreshing after touring all those bodegas each day, or after climbing all those steep streets in the towns we visited. Avelina’s son was on hand to welcome us upon our arrival and took us on a tour of the home – the apartment was much larger than expected and availability of a secured parking garage nearby by an added bonus. The apartment is located a short walk from the main plaza – seems to be uphill both ways! – where you can find numerous restaurants and bars. Throughout the area there were numerous small corner “grocery” stores, but you can do your main shopping at the Co-Op store just outside of town. During our stay, we visited Jerez and its numerous bodegas, attended the horse show there, visited Cadiz, and finally completed a circular driving loop which included Ubrique (known for its leather shops), Grazalema via Benamahoma and Zahara. A word of caution – do not drive through the old town like we did trying to find the apartment – ignore your GPS! Get detailed directions from Avelina and avoid the stress, although we laugh about is now. If you are planning a visit to this part of Spain, consider making Acros de la Frontera your home ba
