Location of villas for rent and sale in Salobrena

map of spain

Salobrena is located in the colourful and warm south of Spain, in the region of Andalucia and more specifically in the province of Granada. Apart from the Alhambra Palace and the Sierra Nevada mountains, the province of Granada is famous because here you receive free tapas with any drink. This is a great way to sample the delicious local food.

Salobrena is part of the still relatively virgin Costa Tropical.

The appeal of Salobrena and the Costa Tropical in general is that they haven't been spoiled by overdevelopment and mass tourism. The Spanish character has been preserved here. Salobrena doesn't have the international reputation of some of its coastal neighbours on the Costa del Sol, such as Marbella, Puerto Banus or even Nerja, but it's an ideal holiday destination for the discerning tourist.

If you want a relaxing vacation, good beaches, blue skies, sun, a wealth of leisure activities and a taste of the real Spain then you've come to the right place.

Since the villas are located above sea level on a hill (Monte de los Almendros means Almond Hill), they have absolutely magnificent views to the sea, the beachfront of Salobrena, the Moorish castle and even the mountains. Some people walk to the town of Salobrena during the day by walking along the beach of La Caleta, but at night this isnt recommended. For those who want to dine out and not have to worry about drinking, taxi can be easily arranged.
