Make a holiday rental, home or villa in Costa East, Costa del Sol your home away from home

The Costa East of the Costa del Sol covers the 54km stretch of coast running east of Malaga City, and is far less developed than the Costa West of the Costa del Sol. The scenery is more dramatic with 200m cliffs, and holiday rental properties are often more traditional than their Costa West counterparts.

Places to holiday on the Costa East, Costa del Sol

Nerja is the Costa East’s main town, housing many of the East Costa del Sol rental properties and villas. It is on the eastern tip of the Costa del Sol, with 16km of fine sandy beaches, meeting azure blue waters of the Mediterranean. The town is nestled between the foothills of the Sierra Almijara Mountains, where the old Town remains quaint and peaceful in its original design. If you take a Costa del Sol holiday property in Nerja, you must walk to the Balcon de Europa to get your bearings before either enjoying the sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing or marvelling at the Nerja Caves.

Five kilometres inland, in the foothills of the Almijara Mountains, is one of the most beautiful towns in Spain, Frigiliana. It provides an ideal escape in a relaxing setting close to the resorts of the coast.

Competa is a jewel of the Costa del Sol, situated high above sea level with stunning panoramic views of the Costa East, with a fascinating network of tiny cobbled streets and cafes.

Inland from the beaches, the village of Vinuela is an outdoor sporting paradise. Situated by Lake Vinuela, the village offers miles of wonderful footpaths, excellent fishing, and two superb golf courses. A holiday villa here is also only 15 minutes from the beaches of the Costa del Sol, and 90 minutes from the skiing in Sierra Nevada in the winter.

Torre del Mar boasts one of the finest promenades on the entire Costa del Sol, and has developed quickly to provide all the facilities needed on holiday. Torrox is also devoted to tourism, and taking a rental property in Torrox means you do not have to leave the town unless you want to!

Things to do in the Costa East Costa del Sol

There is a massive amount to do on the Costa East. A rental property on the Costa del Sol gives you the freedom to get the balance of sailing, fishing, canoeing, diving, surfing, windsurfing, dolphin and whale watching, walking, shopping, climbing mountain biking and hot air ballooning you desire.

Golfing holidays on the Costa del Sol are also hugely popular, with enough golf courses of every style and difficulty to fill a holiday for any standard of golfer.

However, there is no need to do anything strenuous at all whilst on holiday in a Costal del Sol self catering holiday villa. Sunbathing on one of the world class blue flag beaches or sitting in a café in a timeless Andalucian village never fails to inspire.

General stuff: the property is beautifully clean and all of the fixtures and fittings are high-end and very modern. There are lots of plates, cups/mugs, knives forks etc - we were a party of 6 for our 2nd week and we didn't run out once. The kitchen has both induction and gas hobs so will suit any budding chef and the fridge and freezer were both huge. The pool is salinated rather than chlorinated so there were none of the eye and skin problems that often happen when spending long periods in the water and although not heated it was beautifully warm. Every bedroom had it's own en-suite shower room and all were large and modern and very comfortable. Carlos and Arturo, (the gardener) were very helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for either of them. The gardens are lovely and I understand Carlos' mum is responsible for the design; she has obviously put lots of thought and knowledge into them. To be honest I can't say enough about this place - we have rented villas all over Europe and I really don't think we'll be able to beat this one - it is the most perfect place we've ever stayed and that is no exaggeration. The views of the mountains and the bay are wonderful - you can see the A7 motorway from the upper terrace and sometimes you can hear it but it really isn't enough to be intrusive. Thank you all at the villa for helping to make our stay so lovely - truly an experience we would like to repeat and for anyone else that is going to this villa - we envy you!!!

The villa is as described and more; it is very spacious and airy, extremely well equipped, comfortable beds and poolside furniture and everything clean and in good working order. The location is great - very private, not overlooked, peaceful and with good views of the surrounding countryside. The nearest large village, Comares, has a compact but very well-stocked supermarket which fulfilled all our needs during our stay. The local people are very friendly and it is a good place to stop for a beer and a chat, there is even a helpful tourist information office at the gate to the village. We very much enjoyed lunches at the Molino de los Abuelos restaurant in the village square, the food and wine are both excellent and the views from the terrace are lovely - as is the friendly owner who really know how to look after his guests. Carl & Maria were a pleasure to deal with, making everything very easy and straightforward from our first enquiry to checking in. Very highly recommended!
