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.

Apartment had wifi and all the UK channels which was ideal for a lazy day. Accommodation had everything you could need, was as per the website 'home away from home'. Beach was across the road and marina, which has lively restaurants and bars was five minute walk. View from apartment is of mountains opposed to pool/sea but as a result you have the setting sun from 5pm, so lovely for an evening on the veranda. We hired a car as we planned on travelling about and distance from airport, but could have easily holidayed without as everything on your door step (even a local fish+chip shop). The area itself is not commercial when compared to Fuengirola etc., and that it my opinion adds to the beauty of it. We went sea fishing for a day, with tour provided by local guy in the marina (no big fishes on the day, plenty of mackerel so the boys enjoyed). The weeks we travelled included first week of July which resulted in us being present for the Sabinilis and Estepona festivals. Estepona is 10 min drive, whereas Sabinilis is 10 min walk on the prom. Would I return to same resort and same apartment? Definitely! Kudos to Greig for a well organised holiday (our first time using this website). Also, deposit refunded as advertised, all in all a very professional service. Regards, holidayers from West coast of Ireland.

Barbara is always close by for any required help. I would highly recommend this villa as a holiday destination, ideal for a family or couple if you like the quiet life but close enough to plenty of entertainment alternatives. My only gripe is the 1km 'off road' commute to the entrance which is not walkable at night.
