Area Information

La Herradura is the kind of place people fall in love with and return to year after year. It is one of the prettiest bays along the Mediterranean coast of Spain where it is rare to find a seaside village that retains so much of its traditional character. Local fishermen and farmers sell their produce in the municipal market, including the delicious cherimoya fruit. You can buy freshly baked bread at the panadería. Eat paella cooked on the beach. If your timing is good, you might even spot the town's goat herder and his flock passing through town. Of course La Herradura offers many more amenities for visitors: a variety of restaurants, lively beach bars, a marina, Spanish language schools, hiking trails, horseback riding, and excellent centers for diving, paragliding, and windsurfing. Kayak and boat rental is available for dolphin watching or exploring the cove beaches of Cerro Gordo. Many regional attractions are within a day's journey including the magnificent Alhambra in Granada.

The Region

The Region: Many regional attractions are within a day's journey: the Alhambra in Granada, Picasso museum in Malaga, white villages in the Alpujarra mountains or nearby Frigiliana, the spa at Lanjaron, nature reserves in the Sierra Nevada. Closer by you can visit the Nerja caves, the Roman aqueduct in Maro, the Moorish castle atop Salobreña, or the weekly flea markets in Nerja and Almuñecar. Kids enjoy the nearby water park, tropical bird park, and donkey sanctuary.

Dining in La Herradura

La Herradura is known for its seaside 'chiringuitos': Chambao Vicente, La Gaviota, and El Bueno, all serving excellent seafood like langostinos, puntillitas (tiny fried squid), seafood zarzuela, grilled squid and skewers of sardines. At Chambao Joaquin you can eat paella cooked right on the beach often accompanied by flamenco music and dancing. Mesón el Tinao is a restaurant specializing in the cuisine of the Alpujarra mountains of Granada (stews, meat, cured cheeses and meats). For spectacular views of the headlands, try El Mirador de Cerro Gordo. For dessert, Heladeria Mayte has artisanal ice creams, including flavors made from local crops like cherimoya and cactus fruits.

When to Visit

Any time of year has something to offer visitors. In November, La Herradura hosts a classical guitar competition named for its most famous resident, the late Andrés Segovia. By December, the first almond trees and poinsettias are blooming. Ski season in the Sierra Nevada lasts from December through April and hiking trails in the wildlife preserves are open year-round. Carnival is celebrated in February. St. Jose, the patron of La Herradura, is celebrated in March with fireworks and a week of festivities on the beach. To experience local religious culture, visit during Easter Week (March/April), Day of the Cross (May), Corpus Christi (June), or Epiphany Day (January). Many people camp on the beach on the night of San Juan (June) to celebrate the summer solstice. La Herradura receives 320 days of sunshine per year with an average annual temperature of 20º C (70º F). Summer heat is tempered by ocean breezes and low humidity; winters are mild and sunny, averaging 18º C (64º F).

The stunning view makes this house special

We stayed at this lovely house in April 2010 when, sadly, the weather wasn't at its best, but nevertheless had a great break. Casa Lucia is a simple but attractive house in a great location - its USP is definitely its stunning view across the bay.We know the area well and keep returning to La Herradura is it's without doubt one of the nicest villages along this coastline - not overdeveloped with a strong and friendly local community. Daily food shopping in the the local market is a joy and there is a seemingly endless supply of good bars and restaurants if you need to escape the sun (or, as unusually on this trip, the rain). Our favourite is Joaquin's at the far end of the beach.It's also in an excellent position for visiting other places eg. Granada, Malaga (yes, really - it's a much under-rated city), Frigiliana, Lanjaron etc.Our only reservation about Casa Lucia, is that the kitchen is pretty basic - no oven, never mind a dishwasher. A bit of a downside for enthusiastic cooks especially when the local produce is so good, although Laura was very clear about this when we made our initial enquiry so we new what to expect.Laura is another major plus of this house. On day two of our stay we had no hot water. Laura responded incredibly promptly to our call, and by the time we returned home at the end of a day out a new boiler had been installed! She was incredibly helpful from the moment of our first enquiry, and couldn't have made our booking and stay easier.We would definitely recommend Casa Lucia and hope to return.

We had an absolutely fabulous time...

We had an absolutely fabulous time at Casa Lucia in La Herradura, Spain. We were met and greeted by Laura promptly at our agreed-upon-time and Laura was wonderful. She efficiently showed us the home, answered our questions, and let us know she was always `within reach' if we needed her. The setting is beautiful, the village wonderful and the location makes is easy to return to after daily road-trips to Granada, Nerja, Almuncar, and Malaga. We enjoyed the local morning market where we purchased fresh fruit, pastries, fish, and meat. I only wish we could have stayed longer.
Jessica-we had the best time.....thank-you!
