Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Benahavis, Spain your home away from home

Benahavis is a secluded mountain treasure. Although the word ‘gem’ is hugely overused, Benahavis genuinely is one. Situated idyllically in the hills of Malaga Province, it is a remarkably unspoilt Andalucian village, which has become synonymous with fine food to locals and travellers alike.

Things to do on holiday in Benahavis, Spain

From its position at the head of the Guadalmina Gorge, Benahavis is a wonderful place to sit and relax, sampling a range of the finest gastronomy in Andalucia. The only real option for taking accommodation in Benahavis is to rent a self catering Benahavis villa as you will want to try as many restaurants as you can whilst you are here. ‘Foodies’ may end up taking a long term rental in Benahavis as they will find it very hard to leave!

To make room for your next meal, the strenuous walk to the nearby Castle of Montemayor, an 11th century Arab ruin stands proudly, admiring all in its shadow from the highest mountain in the area. The views over the coast are breathtaking, but be warned, the walk is tough. The area surrounding Benahavis is rich in wildlife and ideal for walking and cycling holidays throughout the year, although the village does become quite busy in the summer.

Heading down the Guadalmina Gorge towards the coasts brings you to the Guadalmina golf course, just 7km from Benahavis town centre. It is a lovely mountain golf course, offering a very different sort of challenge from the golf courses in the UK, and if you are a keen golfer, I recommend making time for a round whilst you are renting accommodation in Benahavis.

Despite its mountainous location, beaches of the Costa del Sol are within a fifteen minute drive of a Benahavis villa. There are a host of watersports and five more golf courses available along this stretch of the Costa del Sol.

Places to holiday in Benahavis, Spain

Driving towards the coast from a Benahavis villa you will first find the town of San Pedro. This is a lively, clean town whose beach has repeatedly been awarded the European Blue Flag, so is a perfect place to soak up a few rays when staying in accommodation in Benahavis.

Turning left onto the coastal road, you will reach Puerto Banus, a luxurious beach resort for the rich and famous. The resort is best known for its magnificent combination of small, fashionable boutiques, multi-million pound yachts and lively nightlife.

Weather in Benahavis, Spain

Throughout the year temperatures are blissfully warm in Benahavis. With winter average temperatures hovering around 15°C, and summer temperatures soaring to averages of around 30°C, the refreshing mountain breezes are a great asset.

Travel to Benahavis, Spain

Benahavis is just over an hour from Malaga Airport (AGP), but the trip is well worth it. There are many cheap flights to Malaga from across the UK, and plenty of transfers, costing in the region of £20. Alternatively, hiring a car is a great way to explore the region, especially if you are thinking of taking long term rental accommodation in Benahavis.

Super Apartment With Great Views !

5 of 5
Having stayed in another apartment on this urbanization twice before we needed to find another as the previous one had been sold. This was the one we chose and it was a winner ! Jon is very easy to communicate with and gives clear guidance and instructions. Peter, the meet and greet agent is very pleasant and met us and showed us around the apartment when we first arrived. There are fantastic views from the balcony which overlooks 2 La Quinta golf course holes, gives beautiful views of La Concha mountain and the valley down to the Mediterranean sea. The apartment is well equiped so you can live happily without thinking "I wish I had brought that !" You must hire a car so you can pop down to the supermarket when you need supplies ! Everything is within a 10 minute car journey but get to know the side roads through Neuve Adalucia to avoid peak time traffic going past San Pedro. The beautiful gardens are perfect for a relaxing day in the sun & pool. Our 1 year old loves the dipping pool to splash around in while we chilled out with him. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone from families to groups of adults. Just not when we want to book it! 😉 We will be returning in the future ! Thanks Jon !

Stay at Los Arqueros

5 of 5
We had the most wonderful stay at Los Arqueros. The apartment was perfectly situated - close to golf, the Club House, the swimming pool. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and had everything you would need for a stay. It felt like a home from home and we will definitely like to stay again! A perfect place if you like to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty of one of the best golf courses in Spain!
