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 booked a transfer from the airport but 1 of our party hired a car and went ahead with others whilst we waited for the transfer. Initially there was a minor problem with finding the Villa on the Sat Nav and the transfer driver had a similar issue. But when we did arrive it certainly had the WOW factor. We where met by the Owner Ted who handed over the keys and fobs so as we could open the gates. All the rooms are big double beds most with ensuite There where 3 bedrooms on each floor in the lower floor was also a games room with table tennis pool and fussball. The kitchen is big and had plenty initially we couldn't get the dishwasher to work but worked it out eventually (you need to hold the button on the right down for several seconds) I would advise at least 1 car if you are getting food shopping ect There is a BBQ at the side of the house and on 2 of the 3 days we where ther we used it, the ALDI shop did some nice kebabs and chicken sausages The pool is nice however a bit chilly lol All in all a great property and we are certainly looking at coming back either with a couple of families or a group of friends. The owner leaves his mobile no invade of emergency or any other problems Ps we got taxi's to Peurta Banus in the evening and they where around €20 Thanks Ted for a memorable weekend

The house is clean and the kitchen is new and well equipped. Unfortunately the dish washer did not work but the agent acted quickly to attend to it. The upstairs bathrooms were clean but quite old so looked "tired" especially compared to the kitchen. The air conditioning is fantastic and centrally regulated. The upstairs roof terrace is the USP. Fitted with beautiful outside furniture and evening is not complete without a nightcap in this area. The situation is excellent for the beach and a 30 minutes walk will get you to Puerto Banus and San Pedro town centre with the most amazing restaurants
