VILLAGE HOLIDAY RENTALS
Andalucia´s many beautiful villages and small towns are as iconic as its coastline. With whitewashed buildings, networks of winding streets, and often with striking hillside locations, villages provide an excellent base from which to explore the region´s natural parks, mountains and rivers. Most villages are still popular with tourists, so have a small number of restaurants and bars, and a social scene for those seeking a rural retreat that isn´t too isolated.
Often with Iberian, Roman or Moorish origins, Andalucian villages are steeped in history; however small, a village is likely to have several monuments or heritage sights. Their inhabitants still live according to old traditions, so for more adventurous travellers, villages are the ideal getaway. Renting a car is the best way of ensuring you get the most out of a village and its surrounding attractions, whether birdwatching, outdoor sports, fishing, or just exploring the countryside.
