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.

All of the 3 bedrooms are a great size and each room has its own bathroom which is a massive bonus after a long day at the beach - no queues to shower off the sand! There is also an extra loo just inside the front door. There is a dishwasher and a washing machine in the kitchen and plenty of drying space in the utility room, the clothes dry very quickly in the heat. The balcony is very spacious with a large table and plenty of chairs around it. There are also 4 sun loungers on one end of the balcony and it's large enough not to feel cramped. The balcony overlooks the golf course and on to the harbour and the sea and during our stay, there was always a nice breeze which was very welcome as the temperatures were in the mid 30s. The terrace does get some sun, but is mostly shady which is nice. With regard to kitchen equipment, I can honestly say there is nothing we needed which we didnt find, it seems that the owner has thought of everything! The 2 sofas are comfy and the decor is good. For families, there is a channel showing CBBC which can come in quite useful for a bit of a chill-out between coming home from the beach and going out again. There are a couple of places to buy essentials and also 2 bars for meals and a pizza shop within easy walking distance to the apartment, we ate at Kellys Bar on a couple of occasions and found it OK. For a bigger shop, there is a Lidl and a Mercadonna in Sabinillas (bottom of the hill and turn left ) and also another Mercadonna and Dia on a small Mall if you go right at the bottom of the hill towards the golf course. You can walk to either along the promenade, going left or right, then turning in at the right time. Really everything is within easy reach, we only had a car for 4 days but managed quite easily to walk or bus everywhere. There are lots of restaurants to choose from in the harbour or walking into Sabinillas, we particularly enjoyed the Irish Oak for a drink and we ate at several different places during our stay and all were good. We had a most amazing stay at this beautiful apartment. I can't fault Mrs Bennett's customer service and I wouldnt hesitate to recomment this property to friends and family - in fact I already have! If anything, it is better than described on the website; I know you will enjoy your stay.

The apartment was really clean and in the main, the pool was very quiet. The apartment is nicely situated for the port of Duquesa and 20min drive from Estepona. I can't recommend this apartment enough. I might be back next year!

A small stroll to a couple of bars and mini market, then a further 10 mins walk to the lovely port of Duquesa. We didn't need a car and used 'Happy Transfers' for airport transfers. The villa was spacious for our family of 5, and within easy reach of the pool, making it feel like a private pool. We only shared the pool a couple of times, but even when we did there is plenty of room around and in the pool for it not to be crowded. We would recommend taking anti-mosquito plugs/spray etc. The owners were very accommodating and provided baby equipment without any hassle. Highly recommended and great value.
