There are also two excellent restaurants, as well as a bar (which will already be familiar to any Emmerdale fans as ‘Pedro’s Bar’), which is often filled with the sound of singing and dancing during the evening.

The beaches of the Costa del Sol are just a stones throw from a holiday rental villa in Punta Lara.

                        Fantastic Holiday

                        5 of 5
                        We have just recently arrived home after an unforgettable holiday at this lovely villa. We travelled as 2 couples who were celebrating wedding anniversaries and we were blown away with the kindness and thought Angela & Paco put into our stay, including a bottle of champagne on arrival and a text message from Angela on our anniversary. Angela is definitely someone I would recommend booking your holiday through as from day 1, she replied quickly to all our messages and the amount of information she provided us with was so helpful. She eased my nerves about booking a villa for the first time throughout the whole time I was communicating with her leading up to our stay and it was actually really great getting to meet her in person and to thank her for everything she had done for us. Paco also went out of his way to make our stay special, especially for our anniversary. He showed us around a lot of the area & Nerja, recommending some great places to eat & visit and was always on hand with just a simple phone call away. The villa itself is beautiful. Very spacious with lots of mod cons (including air conditioning) & it was just an amazing experience being able to lay by the pool all day in the gorgeous sun, and then sit by the patio area with it all lit up of a night. The local bars & restaurants were great. A lot of ex-pats seem to have moved over to Punta Lara and everyone was so friendly. You must try the Oasis bar for food (literally 2 mins from the Villa). This was our favourite place to eat each night and Toni & Natasha are fab! All in all, our best holiday and we can't wait to return again. Many thanks, Julie, Mark, Lisa & David x

                        Superb Villa, perfect setting by the sea

                        5 of 5
                        We had a wonderful week at Banoo Villa. It's set with majestic mountains behind and a sea view to the front. Beaches are a short walk away. The villa is very well equipped and clean and we enjoyed both the garden and the pool. Highly recommended. We'll be back!
