Andalucia, Spain's southern region, is one of the country's most famous and diverse. Its history reflects this, as it was ruled by a plethora of civilizations, including the Iberians in the 6th century B.C., and, later, the Carthaginians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Vandals, and Visigoths, and, of course, the Moors, each of whom left a lasting impression on the region. As a result, influences from each of these civilizations can be seen on the architecture, artwork and cuisine of the region, making it a veritable mosaic of the Mediterranean's many sources. It's no surprise, then, that Andalucia vacation rentals are equally diverse, as they run the gamut from beachfront apartments in the Costa del Sol to hilltop villas in Rhonda.
With so much choice, choosing among Andalucia vacation rentals can seem like a daunting task. However, if you know what your priorities are for your trip, then half the work has already been done. If you're looking to relax by the beach, for example, a beachfront apartment in Marbella will probably be your best bet. If you're looking to appreciate the region's rich history, though, then you'll probably want to stay near Seville, where you can visit the Catedral of St. Mary, the Alcazar and the Torre del Oro, among other sights. In the end, it depends on what your priorities are.
Of course, since the region has been popular among travelers for so many years, it's no shock that there are also many hotels available in Andalucia as well. Andalucia vacation rentals, though, offer travelers an experience that they may not be able to otherwise have. This is especially so if you're renting in a town that is not generally overrun by tourists, such as Rhonda, as a rental will give you the unique opportunity to live as the locals do and truly experience what life is like is like in the region. Also, because rentals have been available for a long time, owners generally have a great deal of experience with travelers and will therefore be more than happy to provide you with all of the information you may need to ensure that you discover all that this beautiful region of Spain has to offer.
