Villas, apartments and holiday properties for rent in the Costa del Sol

Spain's Costa del Sol, otherwise known as ‘The Sunshine Coast’, is without doubt one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Belonging to Malaga Province, in the southern part of the Iberian peninsula, it is famous for its subtropical climate and Mediterranean charm. Averaging at 320 days of annual sunshine, this coastal paradise boasts 160km of fine sand beaches, ranging from luxury lounging spots to quiet coves. Inland, discover a varied landscape dotted with whitewashed towns, cliffs, ravines and exotic flora and fauna.

Whether you stay in one of our luxury beachfront villas with a private pool, spacious, family-friendly apartments in the heart of the Costa del Sol, or quiet cottages with stunning mountain views, you’ll get to experience the best that this slice of coastal heaven has to offer, with a Clickstay home from home. Discover why the Costa del Sol represents the true essence of Spanish culture and explore a world of colourful fiestas, world-class beaches, opera and tapas, where the Andalucian atmosphere can be felt in the winding, cobbled lanes and alfresco restaurants. The Costa del Sol is also an ideal location for families, with its water worlds, theme parks and beaches with plenty of facilities.

Holiday alongside the rich and famous in glamorous Marbella, with its luxury yachts, exclusive nightclubs and stunning backdrop of the Sierra Blanca mountains, or get your cultural hit in vibrant Malaga, with its art museums and festivals. Or perhaps you’ll be lured by pretty, hilltop Mijas, with its views of North Africa in the distance. Maybe the Andalucian appeal and ritzy marina of family-friendly Benalmádena appeals to you. Don’t overlook Torremolinos, now a thriving Mediterranean resort town at the foot of the Mijas mountains, a world away from its tacky '70s reputation. But if you’re looking for the perfect mix of city and seaside charm, then Estepona and Nerja are for you.
