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 don't know where to start from, but here are a few things: 1- The villa itself is newly decorated and tastefully furnished, it was equipped with everything we needed, it felt as if we were in a 5 star hotel... 2- The location of the villa was just perfect, exactly 6-7 minute drive from Puerto Banus, couldn't get any better. The area felt safe and the villa had all the security measures that you need to feel completely safe. 3- We particularly enjoyed using Spotify and Netflix which were included in our rental. 4- Last but not least, the owner John was super nice and helpful all along. The communication with John was very effective throughout, and he was available to us on mobile all the time to answer any queries we had. John took the effort to arrange for us a superb night out in town, which was a great memory we're taking with us. To top things up, when our babysitter cancelled on us last minute, John sorted it out for us and made sure we had our night out as planned. It was much appreciated by all in our group. Overall, this property (and the owner) is highly recommended, we can't wait to go back there again. Thanks John for making our stay a great one, much appreciated.

Not only I got a great guidance throughout the booking, but he basically organized our whole event. Didn't ask anything in return. The villa is perfect. The photos give a good feeling, but being there is even better. We had a lot of fun with the indoor pool, cinema, Jacuzzi’s, and disco. I can recommend the villa's to anyone.
