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.

I wanted somewhere a bit bigger than the normal apartments we rent as a surprise for my husband & special treat for us all - there was 5 of us all together as my daughter/her partner & our son were with us as well. We have stayed in Benahavis on numerous times when visiting the family over the past 16 years of them been in the village. This townhouse was perfect for our needs - great location within easy walk of the town & restaurants/cafes (we often strolled up to main street for breakfast - bacon sandwich and coffee & in the evening the infamous Chicos & we ate at Lilis opposite which was wonderful food). The facilities in the Townhouse were amazing- we didn't watch the tv as never there in evening - but the kitchen was fully equipped including dishwasher and washing machine, plenty of comfy seating in lounge, our bedroom was en suite with bath/shower & bidet, another bathroom with shower & bidet as well & another toilet downstairs. You can dine in the open plan lounge/dining area, terrace off lounge or roof terrace & plenty of seating. The real treat with this property is the roof terrace which is the one we used all the time - breakfast & lunch - the views are stunning & it is huge with a table & chairs one side where the sun is for the 1st part of the day then comfy seating on the other side where the sun is in the afternoon. There is extra security as separate gate to come through which is key or buzzer entry only. There is access to a pool but we didn't use it as we were there in winter + out & about all day. We hired a car through Goldcar at the airport & travelled easily from village to Estepona, San Pedro, Marbella/Puerta Banus & it is only an hours drive from Malaga & sat nav takes you straight there. If you use the toll road which cost €4.55 when we were there it is quicker & easier than the coastal road. We were extremely happy with the property & more importantly my husband loved it which made his birthday even more special!! Would definitely recommend & would stay there again as great price as well! Thank you to Nichola who was very friendly & helpful & rang me before we left to confirm things & where they would leave the keys as due to a flight change we weren't arriving till 12.30am. The lady who is caretaker lives in Bloque 3 - 2 down - & we had Nichola's contact information in case of an problems but never needed.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

On arrival, we were shown to the underground parking spot and given our keys. The apartment is large, spotlessly clean and nicely furnished with a view out towards the sea, looking over a golf course. The shared areas (including 3 pools) are extremely well kept by a team of gardeners. We found that the pool areas were rarely crowded, despite it being peak season, and often we had the whole pool to ourselves. We took a day trip out to Ronda and ate out a few times in the local village. The only downside of the apartment is that you need a car to go anywhere as the complex itself is so big!
