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

It has taken a long time for tourists to finally discover this beautiful little piece of ‘real Spain’ on the western Costa del Sol. Completely void of the concrete hotels and large apartment blocks further along the coast, Manilva, Spain, remains inherently Spanish. Like many original settlements along this stretch of coast, Manilva is really split into two sections, the residential pueblo blanca which gleams in the sunshine, just 3km from the beaches where the second part, the tiny fishing port, is located.

Things to do in Manilva, Spain

Manilva has an amazingly long history for such a small settlement. The outstandingly preserved Roman Sulphur baths are testament to the village’s importance in the history of the area, and make for remarkable viewing too. To this day, people still swarm to the baths from many miles to relax in the white sulphur rich waters. The village church is a wonderfully understated 18th century building, and British tourists may be surprised by the abundance of English names in the adjoined cemetery.

The beach is just 3km from the centre of Manilva, offering miles of unspoilt, golden sands on which to relax. La Cala de la Sardina stretches for over 7km, and is one of the most secluded, tranquil and peaceful beaches anywhere on the Costa del Sol. Fishing from Manilva beach is a magnificent activity, especially if you rise early and join the local fishermen. Watching the sun rise over the sea, rod in hand and listening to local tips always starts the day perfectly, and even if you fail to catch anything, the sense of peace and quiet will live with you for a long time.

Completely uninfluenced by the onset of tourism, Manilva is an excellent place in which to sample the finest of Andalucian cuisine. There are a handful of excellent family run restaurants and bars within the village, but no English style pubs or nightclubs. If you would like to experience a party from your Manilva holiday home, the Carnival in February is a magnificent time to enjoy Manilva accommodation. The horse racing at the Grape Harvest Fair, when the first wines of the season is tasted, is a fantastic time to visit the village.

It is in such a beautiful resort and is in walking distance of everything you could possibly need - beach, restaurants, bars and supermarket! Unfortunately we found the agents for the property, albeit very helpful and professional, to be quite unfriendly and for that reason, we would not book through them again. A shame given that the apartment was so fantastic!

This year two friends joined us and where impressed as my wife and I... Would we stay again? - absolutely...

The advert indicates a spacious comfortable apartment - that is an understatement. Both the inside and external areas are very spacious, and everything in the form of furnishings inside and out, and kitchen appliances etc make this an extremely comfortable apartment to stay in. The balcony area is great with fantastic views over the med. We loved this area and chose to dine in and eat on the balcony most nights rather than going out to eat. The pool area was also great - nice size pool for adults and a small paddling pool for infants, a selection of loungers and a clean toilet block, all well maintained. The area is also lovely and convenient with good shops locally and a short stroll down to the beach area (probably advisable to have a car though). Well worth a visit to La Duquesa and a trip into the Casares in the mountains, whilst Estepona with it's Marina and beautiful old town are also well worth a visit - Wednesday's are good as the market is also on. We loved our stay and communication with Jason was good. Having stayed in various areas of the Costa over recent we loved this area, and no doubt will return and look up this apartment when we do.
