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.

The pool is a excellent addition to the apartment. The restaurant next door to the villa has excellent food at reasonable prices. I would recommend holidays to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday at the villa.

The accomodation was clean and up to date, the grounds well kept and the gas bbq a real joy. Antonio was a great source of information. The one piece of feedback we would give is that a better quality of plastic plates would make eating by the pool a nicer experience, especially for the kids. All in all a lovely two weeks.

(It is worth noting that at the Mercadona in Rincon deliver, we successfully managed to do two internet shops, the drivers drop off and bring the shop in for you). We had an issue with one of the showers and after phoning and speaking with her son it was sorted the next morning. As for the villa itself we felt it had everything we needed as a family of 11. The location was absoloutley beautiful, idyllic even, the balcony pool and garden looked over the sea where we regularly saw dolphins. It was peaceful and a short walk to the beach allowed the chidren to swim in sea often. The town is full of restaurants of all kinds; where everyone was family friendy and very good natured when in came to our inept use of the spanish language. Thank you Dulce for making the booking and our arrival so easy we really have had a throughly enjoyable two weeks and I will recommend to our family and friends.
