Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in El Palo, Spain your home away from home

El Palo is a former fishing village and district of Malaga which is now very popular with visiting families, couples and students.

We had a great time in Malaga. The apartment was clean, smart well appointed and situated.

5 of 5
The apartment was great. The weather was wonderful and there were far more amenities in the area than we expected. There is an excellent cheap bus service into Malaga centre (No 3 or 11) with the bus stop 2 or 3 minutes away. We chose to walk into Malaga 4 times while we there which was very pleasant as there are numerous convenient refreshment stops on the way. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and location to anyone. The owner is good with communications and very pleasant to speak to.(perfect English spoken) I travelled with my sister and brother-in-law.

Great Villa for family holiday.

5 of 5
We were a party of two couples with our grown up children (26 - 31), so 10 adults in total.Loui (the owner) sent us a link to Google maps with the best route to take from the airport to the villa, which was a very easy 25 minutes drive. As others have mentioned Loui met us at the villa and took us on a very informative tour of area. He is an extreemly nice gentleman and justifiably proud of the Villa. The villa is huge, immaculately clean, with white marble floors . The air conditioning is excellent throughout, with the exception of the top floor twin room, at the hight of the summer, this room may get too warm to sleep in. The villa is 4 double/twin bedrooms with 2 ensuite and three other bathrooms. However two of the lounges contain excellent sofa beds, you can use these as bedrooms. The villa is very well equipped, with every thing you need. Downstairs is fantastic with a huge lounge/kitchen/diner leading to the pool area with barbeque and patio with seating for 16 with a great view down to the beach. When you are in the villa this is where you will spend your time. On our first day we couldn't find any beach towels, we didn't want to use the nice fluffy white towels in the rooms. I called Loui to inform him, and within an hour he dropped off 10 new beach towels. Excellent service. The beach is about 10/15 min walk where you will find loads of good fish restaurants(bit of an uphill walk on the way back though). El Candado Beach club is worth a visit, we spent an afternoon their (12am-6pm) and they charged us €73 for 10 sunbeds and 5liters of water. They also do about 5 different versions of paella, we tried 3 of them and they were brilliant. If you want paella, this is where to go. There is a small supermarket on the urbanization, which is reasonably well stocked, however within a 7 minutes drive there is a huge hypermarket and shopping mall, including Zara. A 5 min drive will take you into the local town El Palo, a nice town with lots if shops and restaurants. You can walk along the beach all the way to Malaga, but it's about 8k, an easier option is by Taxi it's only €10 and we got them to pick us up at the villa using the uber or Cabbify. There is a nice, well maintained 9 hole golf club on the urbanization. For two sets of clubs with trolleys and green fees (for 9 holes) it was €60 in total. For the energetic in your party, you can also hire the tennis court for €10 per hour. Great villa,Great location, Great host. We will be back
