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.

                                                              Nice apartment surrounded by beautiful well kept gardens

                                                              Nice spacious apartment surrounded by the most beautiful surroundings. Set in a peaceful location, and yet closeby to Marbella, Benahavis and Estepona. There are plenty of restaurants nearby (within 10mins walk). Owner very helpful and always quick to answer any queries or offer assistance. Highly recommended.

                                                              Really great apartment and beautiful location.

                                                              Stayed here with my daughters and we loved it. The apartment has great views. It was very clean with plenty of space too. Very secure with underground parking and security guard. The complex has beautiful gardens and 3 swimming pools. A car is essential to reach beach etc. Would recommend to anyone and would also love to return in the future.

                                                              Beyond expectation!

                                                              Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Guadalvillas and cannot recommend enough! The property itself is spacious, tastefully decorated, well equipped and perfectly situated for access to the pool. The pool has a shallow end with wide steps which for a mum of two under 3s, was a huge bonus. The bedrooms are cool, airy and offer ample storage so it quickly felt like home over a hotel. Security and maintenance is outstanding and neighbours (from all over the world) were all very friendly. We were spoiled for choice for supermarkets, parks and restaurants - cannot recommend Guayaba beach bar enough - not for the service (!) but at 5 minutes walk away for casual, delicious food and a fantastic vibe all day. From the booking, throughout our stay and to the final day, Lynne was quick to respond to any questions and extremely helpful. Pascuale & Theresa who are onsite welcomed us and gave us nothing but wonderful recommendations and links to the local area. The house had all the essentials from soaps, dishwasher tablets and basics for cooking...so generous thank you! A must for any families - especially with young children. From our 18month old to my 70 year old father - it was a hit! I am sure in high season it may be busier and hotter but for June it was the perfect holiday.
