Find your perfect holiday rental in Huelva Province

Holiday in the historic province from where Christopher Columbus first set sail to the Americas!

Villas, apartments and holiday rentals in Huelva Province

Largely untouched by tourism, Huelva is the westernmost province in Andalucia; known for its rolling landscape, golden coastline, mining history and national park; one of Europe's most important wetland reserves. With Portugal to the west, Seville to the east and Cadiz and Extremadura to the north, this famous strawberry growing region stretches from the Sierra Morena mountain range foothills to the Atlantic coast. Discover its historical port and the world of Christopher Columbus in Huelva city, where he first sailed the ocean blue on his journey to the Americas in 1942, leaving behind a wealth of remnants now housed in the local museum. The two closest and equidistant airports are Seville, an hour's drive east and Faro on Portugal's south coast, offering many direct flights from the UK.

The southwestern corner of mainland Spain is often overlooked by tourists, but this unspoiled region offers plenty to explore. To say that the coast here is beautiful is an understatement, as the golden sands of the Costa de la Luz kiss the blue Atlantic. Once known as 'The Secret Coast' the secluded beaches offer peace and quiet, with a surrounding natural landscape of protected marshlands, woodlands and dunes. Doñana National Park and the rivers of Tinto, Guadalquivir and Guadiana lie on the east coast, home to one of the richest regions in plant and animal life in Europe. On the west coast discover a scattering of fishing villages, beach bars and smaller resorts. Huelva city also has a beach, El Espigón, an especially popular spot for angling and kite surfing.

Even though the 1755 Lisbon earthquake off the coast of Portugal devastated this region, many historic structures remain. History buffs may even walk the famous Columbus Trail or visit Huelva city's museum, with life-size replicas of his three ships. There are also three 'Columbus towns'; La Rábida with its 15th-century Franciscan convent Columbus regularly visited, Palos de la Frontera where Columbus found his crew and Moguer, often frequented by the explorer, along the eastern bank of the Tinto river. Learn about the region's history with a visit to Barrio Reina Victoria where the miners once lived, dating back to 1916. Witness the quirky celebrations of El Rocío village during the Romería de El Rocío springtime pilgrimage, where locals gather on horseback in honor of the Virgin of El Rocío.

The rolling hills and hillocks provide plenty of hiking trails, or maybe kayaking, canoeing or kite-surfing floats your boat, with plenty of rivers providing opportunities for beginners and experts. Unlike its busier neighbours Malaga and Seville, Huelva Province offers an escape from the livelier crowds, with a quieter coast and slower-paced city life.

A beginner's guide to renting a holiday property in Huelva Province

Huelva Province is a low-key holiday destination that you won’t hear much about from your globetrotting friends or travel channel, but this beautiful region is perfect for holidaymakers who want a break away from the busier tourist resorts. Discover peaceful cities and villages, tranquil, spacious beaches and serene landscapes that make Huelva Province perfect for family holidays.

The pride of Huelva Province is its natural landscape, from the pristine beaches of the Costa de la Luz which runs to the Guadalquivir River, to the nature reserves and national parks. The pleasant climate and rolling hills of Sierra de Aracena and the Sierra Morena mountain range make this region a haven for outdoor lovers, with plenty of hiking trails and paths off-the-beaten track. Discover several freshwater reservoirs scattered every here and there, providing lovely spots to break from a challenging hike or bike ride.

Explore the surrounding countryside via river with a kayaking or canoe trip along the Guadalquivir. The clean ocean waters and golden sands of the quiet coast attract visitors looking to escape the busy tourist crowds. The Costa de la Luz is perfect for water sports, from surfing to sailing and kite surfing, while Aquopolis Cartaya water park is a favourite with kids with its rapids, slides and pirate mini park.

The earthquake of 1755 destroyed many of the historical structures, however some buildings like the 17th century Huelva Cathedral were reconstructed. Of course, Huelva Province is most famous for being where Christopher Columbus set sail from on his voyage to the Americas in 1942, so there is plenty to explore for history buffs, from The Columbus Trail to the small chapel in La Rábida that Columbus often visited.

Rent one of our apartments by the coast or rustic villas in the unspoiled countryside and discover the subtle charms of this peaceful province. Choose from family-friendly properties to luxury rentals with private pools.
