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.

Weather in Costa East, Costa del Sol

Costa East, Costa del Sol has fantastic weather all year round, with annual averages of 18°C, and summer temperatures soaring to over 30°C.

It did get a little cold at night, but Jayne gave us a gas oven and if it gets too cold, just go and relax in the jacuzzi! Get a small car - the roads surrounding the apartment are winding and narrow. It takes long to get anywhere but the views are incredible. We would come back any time!

Overall the apartment is well equipped with a great selection of books/dvds/games etc which was great in the winter nights - as well as having wide selection of tv channels . We will definitely be returning to Casa Fads just for the relaxing nights on the balcony

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Out of 7 visits to Nerja this has to be the best apartment that we have stayed in. From our initial enquiry the owner, Harald, was so helpful with our questions and making arrangements for us. The apartment itself was everything that we could have asked for. It was very clean and tidy. For a holiday stay it had all the appliances that you might need whether you ate at home or not. The beds were extremely comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space. The main living room was light and airy mainly due to the large sliding doors leading out onto the terrace. Now the terrace! Wow! It was huge, had plenty of seating and was a real sun-trap and overlooked the large swimming pool. The best feature of all was that it was so quiet and peaceful – so near to everything but so peaceful. Turning right out of the apartment leads you to the beach within 50 metres and right by the Seafood restaurant Chiringuito Torrecilla 3.The food here is excellent and is also a lovely place to have an afternoon drink overlooking the beach. In front of the apartment block is a small slope leading up to all the other bars, cafés, restaurants, supermarkets and shops. If you were to turn left then within 5 minutes you would find a row of cafés including Ruskins. English owned it has really friendly staff and serves good food and great tapas. (see my review on TripAdvisor).. Next door are 2 supermarkets. If you had turned right then within 100 metres you would find the ever popular Café Mirasol. Again nice staff, good food and a nice place to sit and ‘People Watch’. A bit further on is a small supermarket which has all the essentials that you will need. If not speak to Jo , who is English, and she will try to get it for you. Self-catering? Next door is a butcher with a large range of fresh meat, chicken etc, A further 5-10 minutes comfortable walk and you reach the famous ‘Balcon de Europa’ with its outstanding views plus a myriad of bars and cafés. Finally on a Thursday a short taxi ride takes you up in the hills to Frigiliana. A lovely little village with a small but well stocked market. Well worth the visit. Finally one word of warning to prospective renters of this great apartment. PLEASE do not book the same dates as I will be next year. Enjoy.
