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.

                                                              We've just returned from our weeks holiday at Villa Paraiso and it was a struggle to leave! From the moment of our initial enquiry until the end of our stay, Susie couldn't have been more helpful. The villa itself is in a stunning private location and has everything you need for a relaxing break but if you do decide to venture out then the town centre is a short 10 minute walk away.....and the restaurants and bars (as listed in Susie's packed information booklet) are outstanding. All of the rooms inside the villa are beautifully decorated, light and cleaned to a very high standard. The kitchen is extremely well stocked-every utensil you could wish for! The maxi bar is also a really welcome feature.....and the bubbly on arrival was a lovely touch.

                                                              This villa is an exceptional property and you won't be disappointed. Ted and Lili are such lovely and accommodating people and were there to help with anything we needed. Lili even took some of us to the supermarket on the Saturday as we ran out of alcohol. The property was very clean and well maintained. The gardeners came 3 out of the 4 days we were there to ensure the grounds were kept looking as fresh as possible. Set in a quiet location, this property is something you can't miss out on. The rooms were all of a very good size, most with en-suites. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to go away as a large group. If I ever get the opportunity to go back with a large group of people, I would stay there again. Thank you Ted and Lili for everything.

                                                              Our stay at Casa La Bonita Vista was wonderful. It is in a fabulous position and furnished to the highest standard. The outside living and pool areas are delightful with great views and a fantastic pool. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa. We have booked again for 2016.
