Salobrena is a small town with a population of about 13,000, a few miles to the East of Nerja, and is the perfect holiday destination for the visitor who needs a Spanish vacation holiday rental or a Spain holiday rental away from the tourist crowds of the Costa del Sol further to the West. Salobrena and the Costa Tropical is the ideal location for a relaxing cheap vacation, wonderful beaches, many leisure activities and a taste of real Spain. There is nothing quite like a winter break to the warmest part of Southern Spain for holiday rentals. So, whether you need a two bedroom, three bedroom, four bedroom or five bedroom villa to rent in Spain, you've found the ideal place for Spain holiday rentals.

To the east of the village of Salobrena, on the way to Motril is the 18 hole Los Moriscos golf course, close enough to the Mediterranean to have a cooling breeze at all times of the year. This is not an area like those further to the west. It is a quieter village with none of the excesses of Marbella and Puerto Banus and their like. It is a place to relax and enjoy Spain holiday rentals with the fabulous scenery, the excellent local restaurants and bars, and revel in the old Spain. The beautiful villas, rented from owners directly, with stunning views that make up the Monte de los Almendros and Alfamar urbanisations, make a popular choice for villa rentals for family holidays and vacations, and are particularly popular with Northern Europeans as retirement properties or as holiday rentals.

The Alpujarras region to the North of Salobrena consists mainly of valleys which descend at right angles from the tops of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the North, to the Sierras Almijara, which separate it from the Mediterranean in the south. The region is one of outstanding natural beauty, and it is sometimes referred to as "The Spanish Switzerland". Owing to the warm southerly climate and the reliable supply of water for irrigation from the rivers running off the Sierra Nevada, the valleys of the western Alpujarras are among the most fertile in Spain, though the steep aspect of the terrain means that they can only be cultivated in small fields. They contain a great abundance of fruit trees, especially olives, oranges, lemons, figs and almonds, not forgetting grape vines of course. The small, white-washed villages clinging to the slopes of the Alpujarras are an absolute delight to visit and photograph, and are quite close by. Do not miss a visit to the Alpujarras when you stay at any of the stunning Spanish holiday villas on Salobrena Holidays.

Salobrena, about six miles east of Almunecar and 3 miles west of Motril, is a typical Andalucian whitewashed village clinging to the side of what is known locally as Gran Penon, but which is in fact a massive rocky outcrop clearly visible from the main coast road. At the top of Gran Penon is the ruined 10th Century Moorish castle once the winter palace of the Kings of the Alhambra. Around and below the castle the typically Spanish white-washed village reaches down to the surrounding sugar cane fields and beaches. The village retains most of its heritage and history, is one of the few villages in Spain that can claim to be the birthplace of “tapas“, and most of the local bars still serve these traditional accompaniments to the local beer or wine. The local areas of Albaycin, de la Loma, el Brocal and la Fuente still retain their charm, maintaining the original village’s layout of impossibly narrow winding roads, paths, passages, and arches. There are many colourful festivals throughout the year when the village comes alive with Fiestas, masks, carnival lights, music and dancing. Below the town lies the long sandy beach that in the summer months attracts visitors from all over the world.

The history of Salobrena dates back to 4000 BC when, so history scholars claim, a party of wandering shepherds settled in the area to live their lives caring for their livestock. They left many possessions and carvings in the caves in the rocky cliffs that overlook Salobrena. The area was once a rocky island with just a little sparse vegetation sprouting from it. The island was surrounded on one side by the Mediterranean and on the other side by the Guadalfeo River. Over the course of time, the river changed its course and the island was joined to the mainland by the dried-up river bed.

Eventually, the Phoenicians settled in the Salobrena area creating salt mines and factories for curing fish, but then the Romans took Salobrena and most of the rest of Andalucia, and they, in turn were supplanted by the Moors. The Moors built the castle that sits at the top of the town of Salobrena and reigned supreme until the Christians arrived and took over the town and the surrounding area. The Christians held the area until the nineteenth century until the French gained control for a very short period before the Christians regained it. This time the sugarcane fields were planted, and this caused the economy of Salobrena to recover, a recovery which has now formed the Salobrena of today.
