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.

El Palo holiday rentals enjoy a pleasant horseshoe-shaped beach of fine sand, plenty of shops and a choice of local tapas bars for evening entertainment nearby.

The soft sandy beach is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, boating, windsurfing, parasailing and other watersports. After dark El Palo buzzes with nightlife as visitors enjoy beer and wine in the tapas bars and partying in the nightclubs. Golfers will enjoy a round at the nearby par-72 Royal Malaga Golf Club. It was the first golf club to be built in the Costa del Sol, back in 1925. Sample the local food and wine in the area and look out for local festivals during the summer.

                                                        This apartment is a great place for family holidays. I spent 5 days with my 2 young daughters my mum and a friend. Very clean, conformable, WiFi very good. Ester and Cristina very helpful. The area is full of cafes, restaurants and playgrounds, 5 minuts walk to the beach and bus stop to go to the old town. We highly recommend it and will go back! Thank you very much Ester Cristina and Susana. See you soon Renata Ferrari

                                                        Great place to live or to have a holiday!

                                                        Super silent and peaceful place. in this place you are able to feel the national mood and culture. Appartments are comfortable and all the necessary kitchen things and so on are included. Terrace is GREAT - we have spent most of our time there + it is quite big and safe for children. People around are very friendly and helpful. But be ready that nobody speaks english =) Once I've forgotten iphone in the taxi - that accident has been solved immediately with a help of apartment’s owner. Beach line is big and not crowded. Lots of groceries, cafes, and markets around.

                                                        Stunning Apartment to Relax and Unwind

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We stayed in La Puebla for a week in December and it was really a treat- such a pity it was only for one week! This beautiful apartment is fantastic, very well maintained and spotlessly clean, with funky open-plan living area, VERY comfortable bedroom and the roof terrace is a wonderful addition - we made use of it daily for our mid afternoon snooze! The owner Maria was so helpful, from initial enquiry through to greeting us when we arrived. She has thought of everything to make her guests feel welcomed - there were some really nice extra little touches like a bottle of red wine, lovely bowl of fresh mandarins, mineral water and proper coffee in the fridge. This is our 4th trip to Malaga for a Winter break and we will definitely go back to La Puebla for our next stay.
