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 were in a party of 10 ranging from 1 year old to 65 years. The villa was ideal as there was enough space for each family to have their own privacy whilst staying together. The villa was exceptionally clean and very well-maintained. Everything that we needed was provided including travel plugs, towels including beach towels and plenty of toys and games for the kids to enjoy which made packing much easier. Susie was excellent throughout the booking process, in the run up to our holiday and during our stay. She was always on hand for any questions we had and could not do enough to make sure our stay was enjoyable for all. The village itself is stunning and we particularly enjoyed the river run - a fantastic experience. Thank you so much for everything - we hope to stay again one day.

The apartment is spacious and clean and offers all the facilities for a comfortable stay. The airconditioning works very well throughout the apartment which is good for having a good sleep even with very hot days. The balcony is really great with a fantastic view of the golf courses, mountains and the sea. The balcony has sun in the morning and shade in the evening. The swimming pool area is just a 2 minutes walk from the apartment. It is a nice pool with sun beds and parasols and (again) a great view to the mountains. As said we were very satisfied and would definitely recommend it to others. The price quality ratio is really very good.

The balconies were all linked so there was enough outside space for us to relax. We loved the tennis and pools and we managed to play tennis 4 times in the 4 days we stayed. The kids also had a lesson with the local coach, Michel. The whole complex is clean and very well maintained. We had lunch at the club house which was good and there's a handy supermarket about 2 mins from Los Arqueros. - the only downside was that the beds were very hard as we're used to soft beds at home. Stuart communicated all the information we needed in advance so thank you for a super break! Fiona
