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!

Fantastic view of Zahara and the mountains - we were blown away. Perfectly located for day trips in surrounding white villages and the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the pool, the scenery and Spain's culinary delights. We had a brilliant holiday. I highly recommend.

Optional darkness by closing the window shutters and putting the fans on helps immensely, the back yard a real sun trap and spa is welcome relief from the heat. 44o when we were there. Welcome gifts are a nice touch, thank you. Could benefit from a bigger tv as when the ceiling fan was on full we had to turn the volume up to max, if you don't want to eat out every night be prepared to go shopping regularly as the standard fridge holds only a little in the ice compartment, the house really needs a fridge/freezer. Also don't sleep with the windows open as the dozens of dogs kept in disgraceful conditions at the end of the road (not Brenda's dogs obviously) have a tendency to burst into communal barking sessions at any given opportunity. The way these dogs are kept really upset me so be prepared if you have any compassion. Anyway, the square offers a lovely place to chill out, highly recommended the restaurant in the middle. Go to Ronda for shopping and Zahara for amazing views. I would definitely go again if the townsfolk looked after their animals with a shred of decency and even if one person did enough to get them moved we could have had the windows open at night. Thank you Brenda for letting us stay in your lovely house.
