Make a holiday rental home or villa in Sayalonga, Spain your home away from home

A whitewashed village so typical of the Andalucía region, Sayalonga has a traditional Spanish charm about it, attracting visitors with its combination of winding streets, rural farmland and roaming countryside - yet is easily accessible from Malaga Airport, within close proximity of busy tourist resorts, and just a short journey from the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol. This excellent combination means holiday villas in Sayalonga are often busy with both new and repeat visitors throughout the year.

The nightlife in the village is low-key but relaxing, and the bars are perfect for meeting the locals and practising your Spanish. Traditional Spanish dishes are the order of the day in the restaurants, producing food that is both healthy and delicious, yet slightly cheaper than the busier tourist resorts of the Costa del Sol.

Much of the self-catering accommodation in Sayalonga is situated on the outskirts of the village centre, and boasts spectacular coastal views. The coast itself is just 10km away, with the beach at Torre del Mar a particularly good spot.

The road to the villa is definitely not for the faint hearted but it is so worth it! I highly recommend this villa as we had a wonderful holiday. It's perfect for privacy and the people who look after the property are lovely and friendly.

The apartment is pleasantly secluded. There is ample parking in your own private driveway. Sayalonga with its small town square and three friendly restaurants (vegetarian friendly: tapas, pizza, salads, pasta etc) is a five minute drive down into the valley. The apartment is comfortable with TV and DVD (a selection of movies on the shelf). The pool is very well maintained and sitting in the sun alongside it was blissful! Wireless internet is available on the villa side of the pool, with good speed. Very friendly, but not intrusive, Bob and Gill are wonderful people and the perfect hosts. Based in the villa adjacent to the apartment, they are ready to offer advice and help. This is a great place to stay if you want to relax by a pool in the sun, away from traffic and people, with eagles flying overhead. Also offers a great place for exploring the surrounding villages and the coast. We would recommend visits to Competa, Firigiliana and Nerja. Also, seek out the circular cemetery in Sayalonga!

It is located in a beautiful area in the mountains. Very peaceful and quiet, away from busy locations but only 10 minutes drive to great beaches at Torre Del Mar and 20 minutes to Nerja. The apartment was very nice with small well equipped kitchen. We mostly self catered. Great shower, two big bedrooms. Wi-Fi Internet access which we found great for planning days out and keeping in touch. Lovely swimming pool in nice garden with sun loungers and mountain views, pool shared between two apartments. Balcony and extra outside table and chairs with great views. Owner - Ruth and partner were friendly and helpful. Apartment was clean, well kept and airy with good shutters. No air conditioning so quite warm at night (we were there in August), we bought a cheap fan from supermarket so we were fine. Easy access to coast/beaches and supermarkets/shops. 45 mins drive from Malaga. Nice walks/runs on mountain tracks directly outside property. Would also be good for cycling. Highly recommended for relaxing holiday. We spent most of our holiday at the pool and beaches.
