Starkly beautiful, with a hot, arid climate, Almeria is an attractive destination any time of year. From mountains and hiking trails to beautiful beaches and a nature reserve just outside town, Almeria is a sight to behold for any nature lover. Nestled in the south of Spain in the province of Andalucía, this Mediterranean seaside resort serves as a gateway to the natural wonders of the region. The town itself is host to many places of interest such as its air raid shelters from the Spanish Civil War, the Crystal Cave (not open to visitors), the ruined Alcazaba medieval fortress as well as other castles, ruins and even houses carved into the rock.

Where to stay in Almeria
From beachfront villas along the coast to city centre apartments in easy reach of the local shops, find a holiday rental in Almeria that perfectly suits your requirements. Do you plan on spending most of your time at the beach? Would you prefer trekking inland and trying a bit of mountain climbing or dog sledding? A holiday rental allows you to pinpoint exactly what you need in a place to stay, and exactly where you want it. Whether you’ve had a strenuous day of activities, or a lazy one of inactivity, visit a local food market on the way back to your home away from home and end the day with sherry and some authentic tapas. We recommend tortilla, jamon and fried baby squid.
Almeria with the family
Within the town of Almeria itself, apart from the beautiful beach, there are many museums and other cultural sights to explore with the young ones. Running about the ruins is a favourite pastime of many young, prospective tomb raiders. And in the surrounding region, there are many easily reached cities with even more to discover, such as Seville with its massive church (3rd largest in the world) and Cordoba or Grenada. Cycling family holidays are also a very popular choice and the region is speckled with scenic cycling trails. The south of Spain is renowned for being family friendly, and what better way to experience this than from a holiday rental in Spain? Spend some proper time together, and without the need to book multiple hotel rooms you can even save money while having a truly unique experience in Spain’.
