Taking you to southern Spain in this article, we will discuss a not-so-common location, Rodalquilar. In case you haven’t heard of it before, Rodalquilar is a small village in Almeria province in the Andalusia community. I am positive that something must have clicked by now with the name Andalusia! If you couldn’t guess, Andalusia was mentioned in the famous novel ‘The Alchemist’. The protagonist ‘Santiago’ the shepherd was from this region of Spain. Anyway, this nearly unpopulated area was once a very busy town because of its gold mines but when the reserves were exhausted, it turned into a ghost town. Thanks to the tourism industry, this village is again shining. And why not, Rodalquilar has many reasons to be popular. There is an abandoned gold mine, some mural caves, a botanical garden, many crystal-clear beaches and a fossilized castle by the beach. The region is also very popular amongst film-makers for its geographic distinctions. If you ever want to visit this village, check out the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Rodalquilar, Spain, listed below.

As you can see from the pictures, the terrace faces the hills of Almeria province, and it is still well within the village bounds.

If you’re seeking a more traditional place to stay in Rodalquilar, consider this option. It is a traditional southern Spanish house that has recently been renovated. The renovation added some newer amenities, but the traditional feel remains intact. Open the pictures and see yourself, from the bedroom to the bathroom, windows to the ceiling, everything looks frozen in time. The limestone walls are thick as a column and solid as a rock. This house is located in the middle of the village, just beside the Cabo de Gata natural reserve. It has three bedrooms and six beds, it can accommodate six guests. The bathroom is just one, but it is huge. There is a television but central heating and air-conditioning are deliberately skipped to provide this rental with a traditional rural feel. Instead, you have fans and an indoor fireplace.
Call it rustic or Moroccan style, this first-floor dwelling looks artistically alluring. Check out the pictures, the front balcony, and its rooftop patio makes it distinctly standout. There is a small terrace as well, just above the balcony. The upper terrace shows the scenic views of the botanical garden and the Rodalquilar surrounding. This little one-bedroom house has an equipped kitchen with modern appliances, and other amenities like central heating and air-conditioning, television and WiFi. It is suitable for only two adults as it has only one bath and bed.

This vacation home is located on the outskirts of Rodalquilar village. That is why the house offers only scenic views and not just street views of the village. The balcony and terrace face the abandoned gold mines and the beautiful botanical gardens.

Central heating, air-conditioning, and television are present but WiFi is not available. It’s the only property in our list that allows a pet stay.
