A sunny region in the south of Spain, Andalucia is the most populated autonomous community in the country and includes many unforgettable vacation destinations. Choose from Andalucia villa rentals on the coast of Malaga or stay in apartment rentals in the heart of the area’s capital city of Seville. This vast region offers visitors the chance to indulge in savory tapas, be wowed by flamenco performances, discover local history, and much more on vacation.
The climate in Andalucia varies depending on what part of the region you visit. During the winter, stay in Andalucia vacation rentals in the Sierra Nevada Mountains where you’ll see the rare sight of snow in Spain. Temperatures here are typically in 30s and 40s (Fahrenheit) during the winter months. Andalucia’s beach towns can be a welcome relief from mountain villages as the coast has relatively warm temperatures year-round. Spring is an ideal time to visit as temperatures are comfortably warm, while summer temperatures by the beach can be scorching hot.
Things to do
Wherever you stay in Andalucia, you’ll find plenty of activities that will keep the entire family entertained. Beat the heat by visiting the sun-drenched beaches of Costa del Sol towns like Marbella, Benalmadena, and Estepona. Funny Beach in Marbella is popular among families because it offers a variety of things to do, such as go-karting, parasailing, jet-skiing and more. If you want to be fully surrounded by the sea, head to Cadiz, an ancient port city with beautiful beaches and many watch towers for spotting ships.
Away from the beaches, there are a variety of museums and attractions scattered around the region. The Parque de las Ciencias in Granada is educational and entertaining for the whole family. The Mini Hollywood in Almeria is a tribute to spaghetti westerns and a lot of fun for pint-sized cowboys and cowgirls. In Huelva, you can learn about mining history with hands-on exhibits at the Rio Tinto Mining Park. Outdoors, take a walk through the Sierra Nevada National Park near Granada, or marvel at the beautiful waterfalls in Despeñaperros National Park. There’s an endless amount of natural beauty to see when visiting Andalucia.
For man-made beauty and to experience the areas rich history and culture, take a tour of the Alhambra in Granada. This spectacular former palace and fortress is one of the most visited sites in Europe, and it is a tribute to Moorish culture and medieval architecture. With trickling fountains and incredible detail, the Alhambra is a great reason to leave the comfort of Andalucia villa rentals. Seville also offers amazing architecture, and a simple stroll through the city center will lead you past impressive buildings and loads of antique charm. Stop at the Alcazar, a fortified palace, for more stunning beauty, or check out the Great Mosque of Cordoba, a fascinating mosque-turned-cathedral in Cordoba.
Food & Dining
Dining on tapas and traditional Mediterranean fare is the way to go when vacationing in the Andalucia region of Spain. In general, much of the diet here includes olive oil, fish, dried fruits and nuts. Atlantic Bluefin tuna and prawns are popular items on many items, as well as a variety of cured hams, like jamon serrano. As important as the food itself, wine always has a place at the table in Andalucia, and many fortified wines like sherry are produced in this region.
While Andalucia is a wonderful vacation destination year-round, there are a few times of year that are particularly special. Visit during Easter week and you’ll see magnificent, traditional processions through the towns and villages. For the ultimate pageantry and bejeweled costumes, head to Seville or Malaga for Easter Week celebrations. Spain’s bullfighting season takes place from April to October and many of the important bullfight ferias also coincide with yearly fairs in major cities in Andalucia. Throughout the year, many fishing villages pay homage to their patron saint with lavish festivals and long-time traditions. Villages with well-known celebrations include Estepona and Almeria.
Altogether, Andalucia makes a winning destination for children and parents alike. With a plethora of Andalucia villa rentals available, and a laid-back atmosphere that pervades cities and villages, it’s easy to have your sense of curiosity and spontaneity sparked here. From flamenco shows to a children’s science museum to days at the beach, Andalucia has something for every taste.
