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.

Costa del Sol - The classic Spanish ‘Costa’

Our Costa del Sol villas scatter the sun-kissed southern coastline. Few places are more à la mode and its beaches are its national treasure. Choose from protected natural beauties or lively resorts, where an assortment of attractions have sprung up in complement of their chic locale.

  • Costa del Sol Beaches

    With many of the beaches awarded the blue flag status, the Costa del Sol sets a high standard. Golden sands and pure clear waters are the trademark of the coastline. With a variety of beaches to choose from, activities such as swimming, snorkelling and many types of water sports are on offer, as well as simply relaxing and topping up a tan. Local amenities include beach bars and restaurants, catering for families and couples alike.

  • Costa del Sol Food

    With many restaurants dotted along the coast line, there is no shortage of places to eat. Local delicacies include sumptuous seafood, freshly caught in the area, whilst most restaurants will offer traditional Spanish tapas as well.
    Away from the coast, the mountain villages pride themselves on their gastronomy talents, whereas the bigger resorts will cater with more international cuisine, providing something for everyone.
    No matter the resort, expect to find plentiful portions and prepare to eat at a leisurely pace in the true Spanish manner.

  • Costa del Sol Attractions

    Tourist attractions are plentiful in the Costa del Sol. Choose from aqua parks, boat and ferry trips, natural caves and spectacular marinas.

Along the coastline, water sports can be found, as can various day trip excursions. Travelling between the resorts is very simple, with one major road connecting them all.

Kingston upon Thames Couple
Spoilt for choice regarding beaches, places to eat and drink. Everyone very friendly and there are so many places to visit especially if you have a car.
It is very built up and some places can be crowded.

Bonnybridge, Falkirk Mix of family, friends
We didn't travel much as we stayed in the villa most of the time. We left the villa one night for a special occasion for a dinner at Slow Boat to China. The restaurant was fantastic and we liked the area.
There was an issue with taxis upon return from the restaurant. We needed 3 taxis and all left from the same rank at the same time but 1 returned to the villa a lot later than the other 2, costing €15 more than the other 2 aswell.
