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.

When we arrived, we were delighted by the tasteful décor and cleanliness of the apartment. Spotless! The views are stunning. All set in lovely, beautifully kept gardens with 2 easily accessed pools. The port and beach are only 10 min. walk away with lots of very good restaurants and night life - something for everyone Every need was catered for, even washing machine, and outdoor barbeque on the comfortable terrace with, Cannot fault this appartment - going to book again for next year!

Beautiful, luxury apartment! Great value for money

5 of 5
We arrived on the 9th June for a 2 week stay. Having read all the positive reviews I was so excited to stay however it totally exceeded my expectations. Firstly the location, it's set in the heart of Duquesa which is a really pretty village port but also commuteable distance to so many other fantastic areas along the Costa Del Sol. It's at the top of a steady hill and it takes about 30 minutes to walk to the port which is a really nice relaxing walk with great views, half way down the hill there is a courtyard which has a couple bars, shop, take away and an amazing restaurant called Montes, perfect for a local night. The Duquesa Village resort is behind security gates which are manned 24/7 and the resort is very well maintained. It's very pretty and kept perfectly clean. The choice of FIVE pools means you can have so much variety throughout your stay. The apartment building has a lift which makes it very easy to get your luggage in and goes directly to the car garage. The apartment itself is so nicely decorated, it feels very chic. The way it's designed to maximise space so you have a lot of room but the benefit of plenty of storage space. It was very clean, the beds and sofa were all extremely comfy. I found everything I could possibly need in the kitchen, all the utensils are so handy especially for nights in having tea on the balcony. The best feature was the balcony, I love that it has the large dining table but also the rattan lounge sofas which you can retire too after dinner. The views are unbelievable, the pictures don't do it justice. I met a lot of friendly people that lived on the resort and overall it was a fun family environment. Cannot wait to come back!!!
