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.

Places to visit on holiday to Manilva, Spain

If you are looking to take a day trip from a Manilva holiday rental, Gibraltar offers an excellent excursion. There are regular trips over to Gibraltar leaving from the port. Larger sightseeing trips leave from Puerto Duquesa harbour just a few miles along the coast.

Weather in Manilva, Spain

During the summer months, temperatures can get very hot, reaching up to 40?C in the midday heat of July and August. Temperatures are very warm from May until late October, with monthly average temperatures remaining above 20?C.

Nice apartment, large roof terrace with amazing views

4 of 5
We spent one week in this apartment at the end of November. The apartment was well furnished and maintained. Unfortunately for us, due to the weather, we were unable to make much use of the terrace off the lounge or the wonderful private large roof top terrace with panoramic views. The pool and communal areas looked nice and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped including a kettle and Dolce Gusto coffee machine. The letting agent had provided a few hotel style bathroom and tea/coffee supplies. The owner has now installed wifi but it stopped working just after we arrived. The owner arranged for an engineer to come out when he was next available 3 days later. We had dinner at La Choza restaurant recommended in another review and had a lovely meal. The TV just has French and Spanish channels. There is no DVD player. I would recommend anyone staying to rent a car as there are no shops, restaurants or beach within walking distance.

Stunning apartment

5 of 5
Excellent apartment, great decor. Fully equiped and TV system had all UK channels and more. Views stunning, sea and mountains. Brenda was very helpfull and quick to answer any questions. We were only here for 2 nights but would stay here again. Note you will need a car, if you fly in to Malaga airport, we have used Malagacar for last 6 years and never had any problems. Dave & Jill
