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!

Absolutely Perfect

5 of 5
I'll keep this short as i don't want to rehash what all the other reviews have said, my wife and i have stayed in a lot of holiday properties and without doubt this is the best equipped, most comfortable we have ever stayed in, the house wants for nothing and we had a fantastic stay there, everything from payments, enquiries, administration to arrival, welcome pack and local management was spot on. Everything else about the rest of our holiday was great also but i'll spare the details as it's all been said previously. No doubting the quality of this acommodation, just book it!

Excellent location for exploring the region, with terrific views in a great setting.

Spent 5 days in Casa de Limon late August. The house is in a small gated complex with a communal pool area. Plenty of on street parking close to the property. The house is dark - as are most Spanish properties to provide protection from the heat of the day. The upstairs balcony off the double bedroom is a sunny space to have breakfast and the downstairs seating and BBQ area gets the afternoon and evening sun. The house is well equipped and comfortable. The lounge area may prove a bit cosy for four adults, though the outside space compensates for this. The equipment for the outside space is excellent with a range of chairs and loungers in the storage area. The pool proved a godsend for cooling off and it was possible to find some shade if required. The pool area never felt crowded although not all properties were occupied during our stay. The air conditioning is efficient (and necessary) - we never did make use of the wood burner so cannot comment! Lots of interest in the local area and there is a lot of very useful information in the Casa provided by the owner. We had done some research before travelling but found the provided local knowledge to be invaluable. Montejaque itself is a manageable size with a couple of supermarkets and an excellent little Panaderia barely 5 minutes from the door. Several restaurants in the village too. We had an excellent tapas meal in the village square, La Cuesta is a nice space but the food was nothing special. As for getting about we can recommend Acinipo roman remains (no guide, no signage, no info but FREE). coupled with Setenil a village built into the rocks (park out of town and walk in, less stressful). Ronda is worth a visit - we drove in and parked underground not too expensive. We did one of the suggested White Villages tours - Owner's advice about Ubrique is spot on - if leather is your thing then go there otherwise there are better options, Benaocaz, El Bosque, Prado Del Rey, and (certainly) Grazalema which lends its' name to the National Park. The 'Little Beach In The Hills' is well worth the effort at Arroyomolinos. The last couple of km need you to hold your nerve and follow the signs, entry was 3.50 Euros each. (Take the beach chairs from the Casa). Plenty of shade and plenty of picnic benches, a small cafe bar and toilets. Good for swimming but ideal for young children too. Happy to recommend this for a couple or a family with young children
