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.

The on-site representative met us when we arrived and showed us around. There was a welcome note from the owners with a bottle of wine and a much appreciated bottle of water in the fridge! The apartment is well equipped and furnished. There was plenty of space for the two of us. The outside space was fantastic with a large balcony, roof terrace and amazing views. The pool area was very well maintained and was very quiet. We hired a car during our stay (recommended) and travelled between the small marina in La Duquesa (10mins drive) and the larger marina in Estepona (15mins) to eat out. There's also a lovely beach in Estepona with plenty of car parking(€2). Lidl was the closest supermarket (less than 5mins drive) and was open until 10pm every night. We enjoyed our stay in this apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday. The owner was always very quick to respond to any emails and made the whole process of booking, payment and deposit etc. very simple and straight forward. Thanks Goran.

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.
