Villas in Costa del Sol

The Costa del Sol is aptly named, offering a seemingly infinite selection of sun drenched beaches. The region has stunning scenery, from impressive outlooks of the Mediterranean Sea to fabulous mountain views. The culture in the area varies from the glamorous, modern way of life in Marbella, to beautifully unspoilt, traditional havens with a slower pace of life - a reminder of how Spanish life used to be. Activities and attractions are plentiful, with everything from aqua parks, boat trips and ample golf courses, to museums, theatres and quaint old towns - to name just a few.
