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

Manilva, Spain

Manilva is a municipality of Malaga, on the Andalucian Costa del Sol. Despite Manilva’s magnificent location in the heart of the Costa del Sol between Malaga and Cadiz, Manilva has not allowed vast development of concrete Manilva hotels, so there remains a charm and peace, helped by the abundance of luxury traditional villas in Manilva.

Places to holiday in Manilva, Spain

The town of Manilva itself is split in three. Sabinillas, the tiny fishing village is directly on the coast, while the pueblo blanca or white village of Manilva, synonymous with Andalusia, is set a few miles inland. To the west of Sabinillas lies the sporting marina of Puerto de la Duquesa. A Manilva holiday villa here on the marina is perfect for exploring the coast and watching the sea lap the shore. The marina is not only surrounded by restaurants and luxury Manilva holiday rentals, but a beautiful golf course too.

El Oasis is a haven of activity on the outskirts of Manilva. Apart from the golf, beaches and dining of Manilva, El Oasis is the spot to enjoy scuba diving, horse riding, waterskiing, windsurfing and take a trip to go whale watching.

Things to do in Manilva, Spain

Away from the beautiful beaches and seaside, there is a huge amount of history to explore in the area. The Roman Sulphur baths (still used) and aqueduct are still visible in Manilva, and are exceptionally well preserved, and there are sites from Roman and Moorish eras along the coast as far as Marbella, Malaga and Ronda.

The unassuming beauty of Manilva has meant that the town has been overlooked as a tourist destination, and I hope this treasure of the Costa del Sol can retain its charm and unspoilt beauty for many years to come. There are few bars and clubs, which make Manilva a perfectly relaxing destination offering the best of traditional Andalucian lifestyles, whilst being in easy distance of the large beach resorts along the coast and all the facilities they can provide.

A family holiday to Manilva should not over look the magnificent theme park of Tivoli World or the Selwo safari Park.

Day trips to North Africa, Gibraltar or Tarifa are available from Puerto Duquesa harbour.

Weather in Manilva, Spain

Summer temperatures are warm, with temperatures reaching up to 36°C in July and August. Winters are also warm however, with temperatures drifting between 10 and 15°C.

Keys were picked up from Duquesa estates (whose staff were very helpful throughout our stay) and we continued on to the apartment. The apartment is a duplex and the finishes and accessories in the apartment are first class. The bedrooms upstairs are spacious and two bathrooms add to the pleasure. The apartment is ideally situated for this resort with choices of bars and restaurants good for all tastes. The pool area was restricted to client only use and was therefore quiet and peaceful. I would have no hesitation is recommending this apartment. Advice for future clients would be the addition of information giving directions to the pool (as this was accessed via the third floor) and advice regarding the Wi-fi password. Great stay at a great apartment!

It's located just off the coast of Costa del Sol on a straightforward run from Malaga airport. In a quiet community of similar buildings it had everything that we needed (plus baby cot for the youngster). Shops and restaurants can be reached by a 20 minute walk or a 10 minute car trip. The beach is good fun for messing around on or just lying down and there's plenty of variety when it comes to choosing what you want to eat. We had quiet days when the house's pool was the centre of our entertainment and the covered area provided shade at mealtimes. We enjoyed a couple of trips out locally - to the mountains and the mud baths(!). On a longer trip we went to Marbella and enjoyed the market there. The house was a splendid base and we were able to enjoy a good family time together. It has all the conveniences that you might want, as well as being comfortable and modern. Everything worked and we soon settled down to a routine, even though the sun was not hot every day. It was the right choice for us and the owners did their best to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves. Thoroughly recommended.
