Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Zahara de la Sierra, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

If you are looking for a holiday to get away from it all, then you should perhaps pay some consideration to renting self catering accommodation in Zahara del la Sierra. One of the famed “white villages” of the Andalusian interior, Zahara is a beautiful place to stay. A holiday rental apartment in Zahara de la Sierra makes the perfect retreat as a place to unwind, and also the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area.

Things to Do on Holiday in Zahara de la Sierra, Spain

A castle sits atop of a rocky outcrop above the whitewashed town, and has a fascinating history. There is a manmade reservoir close by, which during the summer also acts as a mini-beach inland. Fishing and swimming are both popular pastimes here, as is hiking around the immediate area, through and around the many olive groves. If you are feeling fit, then it might be nice to take a bike out for a ride into the mountains, and bird spotters may catch sight of vultures and falcons.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Zahara de la Sierra, Spain

If you are staying in self catering accommodation in Zahara de la Sierra, then it is a good idea to hire a car. This way, you can explore the region both near and far. The beautiful town of Ronda, as equally whitewashed, as equally unique, is perhaps the first destination for a day trip. Carrying on beyond Ronda, you could eventually arrive at the coast and the popular tourist city of Marbella. From there, you could drive onwards to Malaga or even back track to the port city of Cadiz. Remember though, that Spain is BIG, and some of the distances can deceive. Journey with plenty of time and water!

Weather in Zahara de la Sierra, Spain

Enclosed by mountains, the weather in Zahara de la Sierra is different to that of the coastal towns in the same region.

December can see lows of 5 degrees Celsius, but it is rare for it to get down to freezing. Rain can occur at any time, and thunderstorms can build up during late August afternoons.

Joanna and her dog Ozo were friendly hosts. The garden is a generous with mandarin trees and other fruits. Ozo played with our youngest dog and there where plenty of space to go around with the dogs. The casa was wonderful with very equipment kitchen and a washing & drying machine. There are two bathrooms, which is very comfortable, but the water pressure was a little weak. There is no curtains or shutters in downstairs, which bothers us a bit, because we are use to privacy. Wifi worked well enough and that was very important to us, because we teleworking. That period were very cold (in particular nights and one day there where even 10 cm snowing). We bought a pellets heating (4 €/15 kg, we used about 20 sacks) and gas to warm water (gas is quite cheap in Spain) and also we paid the extra money (150 €) for electricity. The rural village is a beautiful with very friendly people and there are also some shops where you get some basic food items. It was a bit hard to drive around, because the roads are narrow and curved. We have a 5,4 m long van and it takes us about 1 hour to drive for the first 30 km in any direction. The vehicle is must.

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!
