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 a family of 7 across three generations with plenty of space that allowed us to enjoy ourselves without getting on top of each other. Miren was at the property when we arrived and helped us with any questions we had and made himself available during the week if required. We couldn't work out the Tv remote and she was at the villa within 15 minutes showing us how it worked. The weather was unsettled for the first two days and there was plenty of entertainment provided in the villa for a family of three generations. Once the weather brightened up and the sun came out there was the pool with plenty of pool equipment available, such as balls, rubber rings, airbeds, etc.(we didn't use the heating for the swimming pool but I was told that it can be heated up even in Christmas when the weather is not so hot) A good time was had by all.I definitely recommend this villa for a holiday.

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.
