4 bedroom Costa del Sol villa to rent
July 2019

Lovely villa! Great views fabulous pool, everything we needed, Tony was very accommodating and helpful, wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this villa we were three couples and two children and was plenty of room for us all. The only thing that must be pointed out is even though the village of Benalmádena Pueblo is very close by there is a very steep hill to climb to get there, but a totally stunning village when you get there.

5 bedroom holiday villa in Málaga Province, Spain, with private pool
July 2019

We had an excellent time in the Villa la Sirena, 12 family members of all ages celebrating a 50th Birthday. Facilities were excellent, slight problem with the electric tripping when catering for a large number but nothing we could not overcome. The pictures on the website do not do the property justice, we would thoroughly recommend.

3 bedroom Costa del Sol villa to rent
July 2019

Casa Sofia and its owners were brilliant. I cannot fault a single thing. Our flight from Southampton UK was delayed by 5.5hrs and our plan to arrive in daylight with enough time to go food shopping etc was dashed. It was a pretty stressful start to the holidays. Our children's faces when we arrived at the Casa Sofia helped make up for our delayed flight though. Everything about this place is awesome. Communication with owners was very easy, prompt, clear and welcoming. Almost don't want to write this review because I want to keep this Villa a secret ;-) Thank you team Casa Sofia.

3 bedroom villa rental in Málaga Province, Spain, with private pool
June 2019

This is a nice villa with all you need for a relaxing holiday away from tourist areas, but still within easy driving distance of all. Rental and communication was simple with good directions to villa from airport, but advise the access road is steep and rough so be prepared upon arrival with a decent rental car. The villa is comfortable and airy with aircon to all rooms, a great pool and patio area with excellent views down to the sea. Catering is made easy with a good selection of cooking facilities including a small but serviceable barbecue to enjoy outdoor cooking in the cooler evenings. We went with a 6 month old baby and cot/high chair were supplied upon request. The pool was great with ample sun loungers and cushions to accommodate all and the property has several opening doors that provide a cooling breeze throughout the day. We enjoyed our 12 night stay at Casa Las Yucas and visited many of the sights of the coast and region, Torrox Costa is a particularly nice beach with a good promenade and plenty of restaurants to enjoy good food, it never appeared to be that busy. Well stocked supermarkets are within easy reach by car at Velez-Malaga and Arenas and the coastal resorts nearby. A good quality, private, quiet property, with excellent views that is situated away from busy tourist areas.

Beach villas in the Province of Malaga

Located in the hilly region of Andalusia, Malaga Province boasts a glorious golden coastline stretching across Spain's picturesque south and the beautiful Costa del Sol. Coastal cities include Marbella, Mijas, Fuengirola, Vélez-Malaga, Torremolinos, Estepona and Benalmádena. Bordered by pretty pine forests and reservoirs, it boasts an array of Blue Flag beaches, excellent restaurants, water sports galore, and a subtropical climate perfect for soaking up the Mediterranean sun. To the north, discover a mountainous terrain interspersed with narrow paths, brooks, pine forests and streams. Direct flights from all over the UK to Malaga city are available, with taxi and car hire services.

Malaga is a top destination for golfing holidays, with at least 70 in the Costa del Sol alone. Work on your swing over a game, with golf courses dotted along the coastline, from Estepona to Torre Del Mar. Aside from the postcard beaches and crystalline waters, Malaga's beauty can also be seen in the Moorish remains, historical monuments and UNESCO world heritage sites. Our villa rentals put you within easy reach of Malaga’s historic and cultural gems. From the caves of Nerja to the gorge of El Chorro near Álora and the Moorish district of Frigiliana, there are plenty of natural and architectural wonders to explore. Not for the faint-hearted, the Puente Nuevo bridge in Ronda boasts stunning views of Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. Watch the streets come to life and celebrate religious and historical events with the locals at one of the many colourful fiestas taking place all-year-round. For nature lovers, discover World Heritage Sites like Antequera and the nature trails around Ronda and Sierra de las Nieves, Molino de Inca Botanical Garden, or the natural parks of El Torca and Alameda in neighbouring Gibraltar.

Cultural Malaga city boasts more museums than any other in Andalusia. Home to the famous modernist painter Pablo Picasso, the Picasso Museum is a must-see, with almost 300 of his most iconic artworks on display. From Gibraltar along the coast, the region was once home to Romans, Phoenicians and Moors who leave behind a scattering of historical monuments and buildings. For a change of scenery, stroll down the atmospheric whitewashed streets of hilltop Mijas village in the south-eastern coast, with local Spanish markets selling fresh produce, trinkets, handmade textiles and souvenirs. Take a day trip to Benalmádena with its famous harbour. Come sun down, follow the party crowd in Marbella, with plenty of vibrant nightclubs, local bars and venues to choose from; or sit back and experience the delicious delights of Malaga’s delectable gastronomy, with a mix of traditional, modern, and cosy, low-key tapas bars and restaurants.
