Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Colmenar, Spain your home away from home

The town of Colmenar marks the western point of Axarquia on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. Located 35km from the Mediterranean coast, Colmenar is an excellent starting point for tours of the scenic ‘Olive Oil’ route into the Sierra de Camaroles and the Miraflores Mountains. Colmenar is the ‘capital of the Malaga Mountains’, providing the outlying villages with an accessible commercial centre. If you are looking for a mountain retreat oozing Axarquian charm, then a holiday rental in Colmenar is the perfect option.

Things to do in Colmenar, Spain

When you first arrive at a self catering Colmenar holiday rental, a great option is to walk up to the village’s highest point, marked by the Convent of the Virgin of La Candelaria. The views from the convent are absolutely stunning, with the snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada providing a picturesque backdrop. The Church of Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion is also worth investigating from a Colmenar property, built in the 16th century.

The rural location of Colmenar makes it an ideal base for hiking holidays and mountain biking breaks. The town enjoys unrivalled access to the mountains of Malaga, and the olive grove carpeted plains that stretch out in front of the town.

Colmenar is known for its gastronomy, with many little family run restaurants serving local dishes, washed down with the finest local wines. The bean omelette (tortilla de habas) and garbanzos soups are particularly good local dishes, particularly in the winter when the weather has cooled off a little. Despite the fact that much of the calendar is affected by harvest and mules are still a common form of transport in Colmenar, the town can come to life during the evenings as there are some wonderful bars, which welcome visitors with open arms.

Colmenar hosts a great selection of festivals and fiestas during the year, which visitors are fully encouraged to join in with. The Dia de la Pipa on the 3rd of May is a wonderful time to be staying in Colmenar accommodation as the whole town heads into the countryside for a huge picnic. The Colmenar Fair in August and the Easter Holy Week are two of the most exciting times to be in a Colmenar property, with endless music, dancing and feasting occurring throughout the town.

Places to visit on holiday to Colmenar, Spain

The beaches of Malaga are a wonderful attraction from May until late September as the weather demands refreshment, and if your Colmenar villa doesn’t have a pool, the cooling waters of the Mediterranean are irresistible. It is only a short drive to Malaga, which is well worth it, especially if you would like to try any water sports or would like a round of golf during your Colmenar holiday.

Weather in Colmenar, Spain

There is never a bad time to escape to the tranquillity of a Colmenar villa. During the summer months, temperatures soar well into the mid 30’s (°C) during the middle of the day, staying easily warm enough to eat outside long into the evening. Even in January, the coldest month, temperatures are rarely below 15°C.

Travel to Colmenar, Spain

Malaga Airport (AGP) is just 30km from a holiday rental property in Colmenar. There are regular flights to Malaga from across the UK, as it is the main transport hub on the popular Costa del Sol. Taking a hire car from the airport is strongly advised, as public transport in Colmenar is less than reliable!

We were lucky to have wonderful weather and enjoyed walking around the nearby villages and walking trails. The house was clean and had everything you could ever need. The log burner was most welcome for the slightly chilly November evenings.
