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. For those interested in a more sporting holiday, there are ample golf courses to play. The Costa del Sol is locally nicknamed as the Costa del Golf, such is the array of courses. 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.

East Sussec Couple
The villa is peaceful and the bathroom and kitchen are modern. The garden has sunshine on it all day long.
The bed is extremely uncomfortable. The bedrooms are dated. The security is over mentioned and makes you worried. The internet is very slow and no good for streaming. The tv is old and the picture quality isn’t great and freezes. The entrance to the villa is on a steep hill with no turning point so you can only reverse out which is tight.

Great villa, good location and good local taxi service. Excellent service from local rep. Excellent equipment TVs, kitchen etc. Close to Lidl so easy to get supplies.
We Rrived late on Saturday afternoon.We weren't aware supermarket closed on Sunday so had to try and find milk for children which took a couple of hours to find a garage but then only UHT. The pool area had a build up of pine tree debris which could have been cleared away, when the pool guys came on our last day we saw them hose the area down but basically left the leaves etc against the wall which explains it.

Family (the eldest child is at school)
The number of good restaurants/tapas bars. Hilltop villages such as Mijas and Casares and mountain scenery. Closeness of places like Ronda and Cordoba which are great to visit and very different to the coast
Malaga airport car hire seems to be pretty chaotic - finding the car and returning it were particularly difficult

Maldon Family (the eldest child is at school)
The beaches are lovely. The people are friendly. It does get quite busy in August but there are lots of fantastic restaurants.
Polo is very popular and the main reason we started going there.

Crawley Couple
The villa is in a good quiet area, and a great base for exploring Andalucia’s spectacular countryside and historical sights.
Halfway through the second week the neighbours opposite had the builders in from 8am to remove their roof, but there is nothing anyone could do about that.
