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.

It was a clean and spacious house although if staying there in winter be prepared for it to be cold with some problems in initially heating the house. It was very cold on arrival and fuel for the wood burning stove (not provided) was essential as the air con heater did not heat the living area sufficiently. The only other difficulty was that the kitchen could have been better equipped - no kettle, only one wine glass and few good kitchen knives. However, any problems we had were quickly dealt by the owner and our five days spent in Prado del Rey was great. Many of the locals were very friendly and made us fell part of the this very pretty and welcoming community.

The service was unbelievable - Julie and Warren not only ensured all possible amenities were available but always at a first class standard. Although they must work so hard to maintain such an impeccable quality, they never failed to find the time to help us in every way possible as if they had all the time in the world and made us feel so welcome that we felt part of their family. Casa La Parra is a beautiful place and is ideally situated between Malaga and Seville. We hired a low cost car for our stay and Julie (the owner) advised us about all the best places to visit and my goodness, we certainly went to some stunning places and enjoyed so many delicious meals for an absolute pittance! The hospitality was most enjoyable aspect of our stay and the worst was not being able to stay longer!

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.
