Costa Del Sol Holiday
Costa del Sol holiday has been a popular destination for holiday makers
from all parts of Europe, and increasingly so from across the Atlantic,
for many decades now.
reasons for this are plain to see and include guaranteed sunshine,
clean, safe, sandy beaches,friendly locals, good healthy food - the
Mediteranean diet being considered one of the healthiest in the
world,and a lovely relaxed fun loving attitude to life.
tours for Costa del Sol holiday have always been best sellers but
recently there has been an increased interest in "doing your own thing"
by renting a private villa or apartment.
This in turn has led to the expansion of rural tourism as more and more country villas in the delightful unspoilt interior of Andalucia have come onto the holiday market.
is now possible to rent a private villa in some absolutely stunning
locations and truly experience the "Real Spain". The peace,
tranquility, beautiful scenary and long hot summer days add a wonderful
dimension to a Spanish Costa Del Sol holiday.

has the largest European land mass devoted to nature reserves and in
many parts is still totally unspoilt. Traditional "campo " life is
still very much in evidence with the production of olive oil, cork oak
and sweet chestnut forests,grape and wine production along with the
tradtionally kept goat herds that do so much to help keep the land as
it has been for centuaries.
wild life is amongst some of the most varied in Europe and includes
wild boar, genets, mongeese, vultures,golden eagles, and the European
eagle owl to name but a few.
In addition to the beautiful scenary there are many historic towns to visit
such as Ronda, which boasts the oldest bullring in Spain, Granada,with the
magnificent Alhambra and Cordoba with itīs marvellous Mezquitta.
with these are the famous and numerous "pueblos blancos" or white
villages. You can while away many happy hours rambling through the maze
of streets of such places as Casares, Gaucin, Benarraba, Jimena, Algotocin and many more barely on the map.
They all have wonderful ferias throughout the summer,and plentiful bars and restaurants serving local foods, wines and tapas.
cultures have left their mark on this part of the world. From
prehistoric cave paintings in the Serrenia de Ronda , Pheonician towers
at strategic points along the Costa del Sol to the widespread and more
famous Roman and Moorish monuments and remains.
However it is certain that there is still much more to be discovered here as archeologists have barely scratched
the surface of many of these remains.
So please donīt think of Costa del Sol holiday, and Andalucia in particular,
as all sun, sea and sangria, not that I have anything against them!
But there is just so much more to be discovered and enjoyed that you really
could spend a life time holidaying in the area and not get bored, indeed I believe many people do.
