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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Apartment is clean, well maintained and had everything you'd need for a self catering holiday. Would definitely go back, and have already recommended it to friends.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      My wife and I celebrated our retirement by spending 11 weeks at this wonderful apartment. It is beautifully furnished and equipped. The balcony off the living room catches the sun from daybreak to sunset, whilst the rooftop terrace is huge and has so much furniture that we comfortably sat another 6 family members with chairs to spare. We felt at home immediately and were sad to leave. The equipment is all very high quality, although we bought, and left,a full size kettle to cope with the British and Irish obsession with tea. The situation is ideal, up a fairly steep hill, which gave panoramic views over La Duquesa and the coastline round to Malaga. Gibraltar was in easy reach, Morrisons supermarket satisfied the occasional craving for an a English treat. The local supermarkets in Sabinillas were excellent, couldn't believe how Anglicised their ranges were. Little you couldn't get. The marina in La Duquesa had every type of restaurant you could think of and were very enjoyable. Our favourite restaurant was La Choza, past Sabinillas towards Estopona, which was a chance find, but a great one. Always available in the marina was a shop that rented wifi and mobility wheelchairs etc. Very useful, for those who need them. The complex is quite small and beautifully maintained by Juan the gardener. There is a children's pool and an adult pool with plenty of loungers available. Yvon was very helpful at all times as were the staff at Duquesa agency that looked after the apartment. A car is essential in my opinion, although taxis are readily available. The TV only had Spanish and French satellite programmes, unfortunately beyond my linguistic abilities. Wifi would be an advantage as it cost 50 euros a week from the marina shop. We only rented for two weeks, making do with free wifi facilities at the various cafes and restaurants. We visited many wonderful places in our time there, even visiting friends for a couple of nights in Albufeira. We hope to go again and stay in this delightful apartment. Thank you Yvon.
