Homes and Villas in Acequias for Holidays


Holiday rental accommodation, apartments and villas in Acequias Spain


Acequias is a small traditional whitewashed Andalucian village but what makes this one different is that time has truly passed it by. It is located in the little known but magnificently beautiful Valley of Lecrin in the south of Spain which is on the door step of your holiday villa or town house. It was originally known as the Vale of Happiness by the Moors and once you visit it you will know why they called it by this name. You wouldn't know it but Acequias is only a few kilometres from Granada and a short drive from the sea making the choice of your self catering holiday rental villa here perfect.

Things to do on Holiday in Acequias Spain

If you have come to Acequias to find the truly rural Spain then with out a doubt you have chosen the right place for your holiday town house or apartment. You will probably be woken up in the morning by the clip clop of the donkeys being taken to work in the fields by the smallholders. The village is a busy place in the mornings with tradesmen selling their wares from vans and women shopping. The village comes to a stop around 2pm for the midday meal and a siesta, it doesn't come back to life until 6pm when the day has cooled off. You will have time to visit one of the bars where you can enjoy free tapas with each drink and a little conversation about the days events. Joining in with the locals is a great way to enjoy your holiday in your rental villa in Acequias. The villagers usually work in the fields after their siesta until dark and the evening meal is served around 10pm.

If you really need to find a beach the nearest one to your holiday villa or apartment is Salobrena. It can be reached by driving through a spectacular gorge about 30 minutes away. Although the sand is course you can still soak up the sun or go for a dip in the crystal clear blue waters. The first thing you notice when you approach the village is the Moorish castle situated on the escarpment overlooking the sea. The seafood here is something else, especially from the fish restaurant perched on a rocky outcrop on the beach. If you proceed further west along the coast you will find more beach restaurants at La Herradura. While you are in the area stop at the old town and Castle at Almunecar where you will find even more beaches and restaurants and still be able to return home to your self catering villa in Acequias before the sun goes down.

As the village is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains your Acequias holiday villa is a great place for a walking holiday. You will be spoilt for a place to walk as there are trails both locally around the village and more adventurously up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. You can take the long distance GR7 European footpath which takes you from Restabal past Melegis and then on to the spa town of Lanjaron and beyond. You can also take the path down to the Beznar lake. There are also stables in the area where you can arrange a horse riding holiday. What better way to enjoy a day out from your holiday villa in Acequias.

Destinations around your Acequias Holiday rental

For a day out from your Acequias holiday villa or town house take a short drive over to the town of Granada. One of the things the town is most famous for is the Palace of the Alhambra and close by is the Albaicin echoing the Moorish past with its maze of streets and views of the Alhambra. The Baroque decoration of the Cartuja and the Carthusian Monastery is a must see while you are in the town.
