Magnificent flora and fauna

The flora in Andalusia is one that you will hardly find anywhere else: from the second-highest mountain range in Europe to the only desert on the continent, forests, coastline, and tidal marshes that are considered biosphere by UNESCO. This is because of the location of the region, which is between Europe and Africa and between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The Mediterranean climate characterized by dry summers and irregular rainfall during the other seasons influences the landscape, resulting in saltwater marshes, lagoons, and coastal strips with special species of plants. Also, on that part of the coast, there are forests of cork and evergreen oak. The so-called sierras: mountain areas with rocks and lush waters offer a unique and spectacular view.

Due to the diverse habitat types and the location of the region between Europe and Africa, Andalusia is the paradise of birds. In case you are a bird-watcher, it is recommended for you to come during spring because then you are able to enjoy the view of both wintering birds and those coming for the summer. Take your binoculars with you and admire the beauty of nature. Don’t forget to include in your itinerary the region of Sierra Morena, where you can spot the extremely rare black vulture, and the Parque Nacional de Doñana, which is the home of the Spanish imperial eagle. Some common species that you will see in Andalusia are the white storks (in the western part of the region), wild ducks, flamingos (along the Atlantic coast), and the colourful golden oriole that is normal to be observed during the summer months. That’s not all regarding fauna. You have high chances of seeing at least one of the following animal species: deers, wild pigs, royal owls, and red foxes. However, the Iberian Lynx is an endangered species that is rigorously protected in the peninsula. Are you even more curious to see the Spanish region? Now it’s the moment to book one of the holiday houses in Andalusia offered on Nature.house. The available Andalusian cottages are located in wonderful natural surroundings.

How can you spend your time in Andalusia?

By renting a cottage in Andalusia you will be even closer to the places that are worth exploring. There are so many options that we don’t even know which one to start with. You can practice water sports or just relax on the beaches of the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz. Seaside resorts such as Málaga, Torremolinos, and Marbella are known worldwide, but the smaller ones, such as Nerja, are also highly recommended. For an unforgettable experience, you can try hydro flying, jet skiing, paddle surfing, or kiteboarding.
