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.

Great views, clean and comfortable

4 of 5
The views from the balcony were great, if you want total privacy the balcony cannot be overlooked and gets the sun for most of the day, personally we like to sit and look at the view, but balcony wall a bit too high for us. The apartment was clean throughout with everything needed in the kitchen, wifi extremely fast 75MB much faster than our home in the UK. Car parking underground what we thought was our parking space was someone elses so a bit confusing, however security told us the bay we had to use, which was a bit tight for our Scenic. Security at gate was first class, never had any problems during our stay, whole site was quiet. The port, beach and shopping is approx 10 - 15 minute drive, plenty of restaurants in the port with Lidl store 5 mins drive from port and Carrefour supermarket in Estepona. Gibralta and Marbella only 40 min drive. We have stopped in Duquesa/Manilva many times over last 5 years and it is a great place to relax with everything close at hand. DAVE & JILL

Stunning apartment & great service!

5 of 5
Couldn't have asked for better. Both communication with the owners and their beautiful apartment. Everything catered for...a welcome pack on arrival was a lovely touch. Very clean and spacious and beautifully furnished throughout. The rooftop terrace is a hidden gem....with masses of seating and bbq. The apartment complex is secure...clean and very well maintained. Two pools...both securely fenced with a lifeguard on duty. I highly recommend and will definitely be booking again soon.
