Make a holiday rental property or apartment in Motril, Spain your home away from home

Motril is the largest town on the Costa Tropical, Andalucia, Spain. Nestling among the lush foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and with two magnificent beaches lining the front of the town, apartments in Motril are the ideal base for holidays in Spain if you want it all; beaches, mountains, shops, sports and culture.

Things to do in Motril, Spain

Many people flock to the Costa Tropical purely for its beaches, and if this is what has drawn you to investigate Motril property, you will not be disappointed. There are two main beaches running along the front of the town, overlooked by some of the most luxurious apartments in Motril. The more popular of the two, Playa Poniente is a tourist beach haven, filled with all the water sports, refreshment and beach centres offering every facility you could need for a top class day on the beach. There are a huge range of secluded coves and rocky inlets along the coastline here, perfect for quiet day’s snorkelling, bathing and sailing.

If you are looking for water sports during your stay in a self catering Motril property, the marina is the best place to look. The marina is also the centre of the best nightlife and finest restaurants in Motril, letting you dine on Motril’s finest cuisine whilst watching the sightseeing trips to Gibraltar, multi-million pound yachts and chartered fishing vessels pass by.

The peaks of the Sierra Nevada are not far from a property in Motril either. A short drive will bring you to some of the best walking, mountain biking, horse riding and rock climbing country in Andalucia, and if you are a little rusty, or have never tried the sports before, equipment hire, lessons and guided trips can all be organised with ease from an apartment in Motril. The Motril tourist information centre will have details on local outdoor activity centres.

Historic Granada is just a forty minute drive, allowing you to visit the beautiful Alhambra Palace and gardens in the morning and return to complete the day with a lazy afternoon on the beach. During the winter months, the ski resorts of the Sierra Nevada are a hive of activity, also easily reached from a holiday rental apartment in Motril.

We Didn't Want to Leave!

I'm not sure I want everyone to know about La Palomita but I am going to be very good and give it the review it deserves! Circumstances meant we'd been unable to travel much with our two daughters of 14 and 7 up until now. Making up for lost time, this spring we decided that a first trip to Spain for any of us would encourage the girls with their Spanish. I really wanted to avoid mass tourism and had a dream of Spain and Andalucia in particular that I feared reality couldn't match up to - particularly on our limited budget. When I was despairing of finding the place that suited us all at a price we could afford, La Palomita popped up out of a random search. Was it really this price I enquired? Yes it was! Gigi Sudbury, the owner, is that rare type of very interesting person who is genuinely interested in others and exceedingly kind . Both her and Gym, her friend, fellow artist and property manager ( who renovated and used to own La Palomita) dealt with our chaotic travel hiccups very patiently on the night we arrived. In the morning a busy Gym, who unfortunately had very little sleep due to us, found the time to bring some delicious jam, milk and butter and even ran after the bread van for us! La Palomita is like an artist's dream of Andalucia, with all of it's shades, colours, textures and spaces. No object is out of place and being in La Palomita is like living in a beautiful work of art, but with intense comfort in the essentials. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The girls loved all of the courtyards, the roof terrace and the nooks and crannies. Every day we saw something new we hadn't noticed before. The changing light is lovely in the interiors and courtyards. It is the most ideal destination for a family that are new to Spain and car hire, want to be away from the hurly burly and yet get into it easily whenever they want. Chite is a very short 5/10 minute walk along a panoramic pavement from the bigger Lecrin. From Malaga airport drive up motorway, turn left at Motril and then left again to Chite. In an hour and a quarter from the airport you are in the peaceful, friendly surroundings of the village looking over to the Sierra Nevada mountains. If you aren't confident to drive up the narrow street La Palomita is on, just park in the wider street towards the main road. There is always a space and the walk to the house is short and pleasant. We can't wait to go back.

The property is fantastic property well secluded.

5 of 5
The overall impression is absolutely very good. We have now stayed at 5 different properties in Orgiva, and the last three of them have all been with Oliver. The reason for this is simple, everything work out seamless. Oliver has several properties that can be hired, all of them are absolutely favourable, but for different needs and purposes. All are completely equipped and you are well taken care of from the point you are entering Orgiva. Whenever coming back, we will not look for anything else. Well done Oliver ! Bonny and Kjell
