Andalucia

Where is Andalucia?

Andalucia is located in southern Spain and is divided into eight provinces – Almeria, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaen, Malaga and Seville. We’ve got villas located in the resorts of Nerja, Torrox Costa and Frigiliana, all perfectly positioned for you to explore the wider area.

Andalucia Climate and When to Visit

Andalucia has a typically Mediterranean climate, complete with warm, dry summers and mild winters. Summer is the peak season, when the region is prone to long sunny days and short, pleasantly warm nights. During these months it very rarely rains and temperatures average 28°C – ideal if you’re looking to top up your tan at the beach, or around your own private pool.

In September, you can expect more great weather, albeit with fewer crowds, while October’s slightly cooler temperatures (averaging a balmy 24 degrees Celsius) make for great sight-seeing days. Spring is the ideal time if you want to see colourful fauna blossoming, such as that of the National Park of the Sierras de Tejeda. Or during the whole season why not checkout the 18-hole Baviera Golf Club?

Nightlife

Whether you’re after laid-back dining in Frigiliana or a livelier evening out in Nerja’s Plaza Tutti Frutti, you’ll find something to love in Andalucia. Lined with numerous bars, central Nerja is perfect if you’re looking to dance the night away in buzzing Spanish bars. Elsewhere, the Torrox Costa promenade offers a wide selection of good eateries for a more low-key evening out. Take your pick of nightlife highlights near your resort, or if you venture a little further out to the bigger cities like Malaga for a day shopping, visit the many restaurants for a bite to eat.

History

The history of Andalucia goes back several millennia and you can visit a number of different heritage sites to explore it in detail. Mankind’s habitation in the area dates to the Upper Palaeolithic period, as shown by human remains found in Nerja Cave, a popular tourist attraction.   You can explore Roman sites, including a section of the old road which linked Sexi (Amunecar) with Caviclum (Torrox) and a bridge which provided communications with the Roman town of Detunda (Maro). The Roman remains in the archaeological site near the lighthouse in Torrox make it one of the most valuable sites in the Provence of Malaga.

For an insight into the Moors who occupied Andalucia for several centuries in the Middle Ages, visit the Alcazaba castle in Malaga or head up to the world-renowned UNESCO site of the Alhambra in Granada – perfect for a day trip!

In 1509, to provide coastal defences against the attacks of Berber pirates, a fortress was built on rocky ground overlooking the sea in Nerja, which is the site of the popular Balcon de Europa today. To learn more about all historical aspects of the region, the Archaeological Museum in Frigiliana is well worth a visit.

Culture

Holy Week, following Palm Sunday, is perhaps the most moving and dramatic celebration Andalucia has to offer. During the Easter processions, fancifully decorated floats parade through the streets. Come October, the Feria del Nerja is held – an annual celebration made up of various flamenco and musical performances.

Places of Interest

The popular Caves of Nerja are within driving distance from any of our Andalucian villas. Set in the slopes of the Sierra Almijara Mountains, you’ll find cave paintings over 20,000 years old and huge stalactites hanging from the ceiling. Classical concerts are held here in the summer, too.

Ronda, on the other hand, is one of Andalucia’s most popular inland destinations, with its famous deep gorge and historical Old Town. Whilst here get a token photograph looking out over the stunning surrounding valley before returning to the comfort of your villa.

Cuisine

The region has a vast selection of restaurants to choose from, ranging from simple beach eateries to other more luxurious dining options. You’ll find both international and Spanish cuisine in Andalucia, with locally sourced fish frequently on the menu – a staple of the famous Mediterranean diet. If you’re having difficulty deciding what to try, get a selection of tasty tapas dishes to share.

Things to Do for Families

Get to know Nerja on one of the tourist trains which tootle around – you’ll get to see the best attractions and be able to map out what you want to do for the rest of your holiday in Spain. The Aquavelis Waterpark (Parque Acuatico) in Torre del Mar, offers exciting rides like the Kamikaze, as well as a small-scale mini park for younger children.

Water sports fans will find plenty to occupy them, too, including parasailing, jet-ski and banana rides at Nerja’s Burriana Beach. Inland from the beach lies the mountainous National Park of the Sierras de Tejeda, which is easily accessible from other Villa Plus resorts, like Frigiliana, and Torrox Costa.

Andalucia Resorts

Enjoy a stay in one of our Andalucia villas in Southern Spain, soaking up fabulous resorts like Nerja, Frigiliana and Torrox Costa, not to mention plenty of Mediterranean sunshine. You'll never be too far away from traditional villages, or the coast - the best of both worlds.

Frigiliana
18 Villas

The picturesque village of Frigiliana is perched on a ridge in the Tejeda mountains, securing it fantastic, scenic views. One of the typical ‘white villages’ of Southern Spain, it has won awards as Andalucia’s Prettiest Village. The river - Rio Higueron - runs through the centre, providing lovely walks and picnic spots - not to metion scenic views.

Nerja
46 Villas

Nerja has remained largely untouched by development and the old town is still a maze of narrow streets and traditional architecture virtually unchanged for centuries. The added bonus is having over 7 miles of nearby beaches to explore. Don’t miss the spectacular Balcon de Europa at the end of a palm-lined promenade where, from its circular viewpoint, you gaze out at the vast panorama of town, coast and mountains. At its heart is the Plaza Tutti Frutti where people enjoy dancing to live music until the early hours.

Torrox Costa
6 Villas

The upmarket town of Torrox Costa in Andalucia is all about the beautiful Blue Flag beaches of El Penoncillo and Ferrara Playa with the resort having around 6 miles of pristine coastline to its name. There’s a choice of places to dine along the promenade and down the little side streets by the beach. Although, today a modern holiday resort, it has an interesting history as it was once the harbour used by the merchants of Granada in the silk trade with Baghdad and Damascus. There are some remnants of Roman settlements here too.

Torrox
2 Villas

The beautiful Andalucian village of Torrox is set in the hills above the coastal resort of Torrox Costa. The village has maintained much of its original character with a charming square and whitewashed houses. Our villas are located in the surrounding countryside, just a short drive from the village centre. The larger seaside resorts of Torrox Costa and Nerja are within easy reach.

Things to do in Andalucia

There’s plenty to keep you occupied in Andalucia. No villa holiday would be complete without trying out the variety of water sports available on Burriana Beach – of course, you can always brush up on your swimming skills by your own private pool. If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land visit the spectacular caves of Nerja, or one of the traditional ‘white’ villages of the Costa del Sol, like Frigiliana, for a true taste of life in Spain.

Chillar River Walk

The Chillar River Walk takes you from the beach in Nerja, leading through the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and the Alhama Natural Park. With crystal clear river pools combined with the shaded canyon, it’s perfect for a hot summer’s day. Why not take a picnic and enjoy a paddle to cool down?

Explore Andalucia

Andalucia has lots of exciting places for you to explore within easy reach! Discover the beautiful hillside village of Frigiliana, full of charm and showcasing spectacular views. Don’t miss the fascinating Caves of Nerja and be sure to visit the Balcon de Europa for a fantastic photo opportunity. Further afield, the cities of Malaga and Granada are both steeped in history and make for fantastic day trips.

Watersports

If you’re looking for a fun way to cool down, why not try your hand at some watersports? Burriana Beach has a wide selection of activities on offer, from the high adrenaline favourites of jet skis and banana boats to the laidback alternatives of pedaloes and kayaking. You’ll also be able to enjoy snorkelling and diving - there is something for everyone!

Waterparks

You’ll find 2 waterparks within driving distance of our resorts – Aquavelis, located in Torre del Mar, and the saltwater park of Aquatropic in Almunecar. Both promise a great day out for all the family and offer a wonderful choice of slides, flumes and pools to keep everyone entertained.  

Eating Out

Nerja is home to over 300 restaurants, so when it comes to dining out you’re sure to be spoilt for choice! From fresh seafood  and delicious paella to traditional tapas and plenty of international menus on offer, we have no doubt that even the trickiest of taste buds will find something they love. For great sea views and a laidback atmosphere make sure you try the chiringuitos (beach bars) along the coast.

Beaches in Andalucia

Beach lover's will be spoilt for choice in Andalucia! From the popular Burrirana Beach with watersports galore, to the laidback Penoncillo Beach with limited facilities, there are plenty to choose from across Nerja and Torrox Costa alone. Why not visit a different one each day?

Burriana Beach

This is probably the most popular beach in Nerja with every conceivable facility from watersports to children's play areas and volleyball nets. There is something for everyone. Lining the beachfront are traditional Spanish restaurants, while opposite there is a wealth of ice cream parlours, bars and bistros to choose from, some offering live music and flamenco shows.

Calahonda Beach

This small, picturesque cove is located right in the centre of Nerja, dotted with traditional fisherman’s cottages built into the rugged sea-worn rocks. There’s a restaurant on the beach itself as well as easy access to an array of cafes, bars and restaurants in and around the famous Balcon de Europa.

Caletilla Beach

Often mistaken as a private beach, this beach is located directly below the Balcon de Europa with access through the Hotel Balcon de Europa or via a walkway from the adjacent Calahonda Beach. There are plenty of places to eat and drink a short walk away, some with splendid sea views.

Carabeillo Beach

Located at the eastern end of Nerja, this beautiful sand and pebble coves is tucked away between Carabeo and Burriana beaches. Less touched by tourism, there are limited facilities and, with 117 steps down, it’s worth taking your own drinks and snacks! Due to the location and accessibility, this beach isn’t recommended for people with mobility difficulties or with children in pushchairs.

Carabeo Beach

This sheltered sandy cove is located right in the heart of Nerja. There are sunbeds available and a kiosk serving drinks and snacks in high season. A wide selection of shops and eateries are also just a short walk from the resort centre.

Food & Drink in Andalucia

Food is an integral part of Andalucian life with plenty of options when eating out ranging from simple yet tasty tapas to fresh fish. Many of the beaches have chiringuitos – beachside restaurants – where you can dine whilst overlooking the sea. You’ll find a range of international cuisine on offer too including Chinese, Italian and Greek – there is something to suit every taste bud. But for a true cultural experience, you must try the typical cuisine including the Andalucian Gazpacho and sweet churros.


Local Markets - Puglia
Markets

Markets are a common sight in towns and villages throughout Andalucia. They are colourful, noisy and entertaining – an experience not to be missed. The Tuesday morning market in Nerja is made up of a wide range of stalls selling not only fruit, vegetable and local produce but clothes, shoes and ceramics. Frigiliana's market days are Thursdays and Sundays, which is a great place for picking up local produce and specialities. You’ll also find a market in Torrox Costa on a Monday.


Speciality Dishes - Puglia
Speciality Dishes

The restaurants serve a variety of cuisines including fresh seafood caught daily, traditional tapas, as well as plenty of paellas. Some dishes you must try on your Andalucian Villa holiday include:

Tapas - Tapas are small portions of foods, both hot and cold, often accompanied by Spanish sherry or draught beer. Favourites to sample are gambas al pil pil (prawns sizzled in oil with garlic and chilli), tortilla de patatas (Spanish potato omelette), croquetas (croquettes containing ham, fish or cheese) and remojon (olives and orange salad).

Paella - Paella is one of the most iconic dishes from Spain’s gastronomy. The Andalusian Mediterranean paella coloured and subtly flavoured with saffron can be traced back to Moorish times. It’s usually made with seafood, including clams, mussels, calamari, and prawns. There are also versions with chicken and pork, as well as mixed meat and seafood.

Seafood - As Nerja is a coastal town fresh fish and seafood are plentiful. From the Mediterranean waters, fishermen bring the daily catch swordfish, tuna, calamari, sardines to local restaurants and bars.

Andalucian Gazpacho - Andalucian Gazpacho is a cold soup made of raw blended vegetables. A classic of Spanish cuisine, it originated in the southern region of Andalusia.

Churros - This is a sweet tasty treat and each churro is a dough consisting of flour, water, sugar and salt which is introduced into an apparatus similar to a pastry bag where it is pushed out by extrusion into cylindrical strips the thickness of a finger. They are fried in oil and then, sometimes, coated in sugar or bathed in chocolate.
