Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Daimalos, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

Set at a height of 400 metres above sea level, and 50km from Malaga, Daimalos is a pleasant and more importantly unspoiled whitewashed village on the Costa del Sol, in southern Spain. Although 10km from the coast itself, it is a perfect location to enjoy and experience this part of Spain. Forget ugly high rise hotels – a holiday rental cottage in Daimalos is far better in every respect. Fully equipped with everything that you need to feel comfortably at home, you will start to feel less like a tourist and more like a member of the local community.

Malaga, a major city, is worth spending a day at, where its old centre and new buildings mix well to produce a cosmopolitan feel.

                                  Two beautiful, traditional homes with pool - perfect for our group of friends!

                                  5 of 5
                                  I have recently returned from a week away with my husband and three friends in these really unique holiday homes. There was plenty of room for us all, as we spread out across both houses. The original house is just across the path from the main villa and remains practically unaltered, and very traditionally Spanish. Next door, the owners built a more spacious villa in keeping with the wider village. This house has stunning views over the mountains and a beautiful private pool surrounded by fully grown gardens (including a lemon tree - handy for G&T!). Everyone could keep their own hours because of the separated living arrangements, but we cooked and dined together in the villa house every day, which has a large terrace and outdoor dining table. Sunny days were spent around the pool, catching sun and reading from the very impressive library, and we also visited some lovely nearby villages and a winery, enjoyed spectacular views from the ruined castle on the other side of the valley, and had paella at a beach restaurant on the coast. You can tell this is a family home and not just some holiday villa. It feels just like being invited to stay at a friend’s place in the mountains! Both homes have been lovingly decorated with traditional Spanish antiques, unlike many rental villas. The private garden is really peaceful, being right on the edge of this small Andalusian village. I can’t recommend the place highly enough. I’ve already booked in again for next season. Thank you Adam and Family

                                  Captivating village house in stunning location.

                                  From the moment we walked into Villa Daimalos we knew that our stay there was going to be special. Set against mountains close to a village but in a very private location there is a magical sense of timelessness about the place, partly due to the amazing library of books there which is truly impressive and also due to the love and care that has clearly been put into its creation. As for outside the pool is perfect , the fountains entrancing, the ambiance relaxing and the view? It's breathtaking. We have all been put under its spell and hope to return to see it again in all seasons. Thank you to Adam and his family for all their help. Best wishes, Tessa, Chris, Daisy and Arran Dunn.
