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

The town of Velez Malaga, or just Velez to the locals, lies just 1km inland from the coast at Torre del Mar. Situated in the wide Velez Valley, a holiday rental property in Velez Malaga gives you the best of both worlds; a quiet, rural Spanish setting, just a kilometre from the golden beaches of the Costa del Sol.

The cottage itself is well stocked, and the welcome drinks in the fridge were indeed very welcome!! We received a warm welcome by Abi who was at the property waiting for us ready to answer any questions we had. All the property facilities are as described, I cannot think of a single thing that is needed on holiday that was not provided. Our week was spent walking in the area which was fab; returning to the cottage, getting a drink and sitting on the beach, often with the beach to ourselves, was divine. Having breakfast on the terrace was lovely, although we did not have the time to take advantage of the sun loungers up there. Just 30 yards down on the beach is a lovely beach bar with welcoming hosts, good food which you can enjoy sat with your feet in the sand and your mind in heaven! We are back again this April for our second visit!

Property was clean and welcoming and very handy for all local amenities. German, the owner, was very pleasant and made us most welcome when we arrived. We had no need to contact him during our stay as we found everything we needed. Benajarafe is a very 'Spanish' location with very few English speakers, which did cause some communication problems at times, but all were very patient with our attempts at speaking in very broken Spanish. I would not hesitate in recommending this property for a relaxing holiday in the sun, and would go back myself some time in the future.

The bed was extremely comfortable and so was the apartment. The location is ideal, out of your 'cosy home' and straight onto the promenade. This apartment was very comfortable for the "two oldies"like us, everything within easy reach, lift for heavy items or stairs to keep you agile,didn't need car which remains safe behind a locked gate. Would recommend this flat for couples whatever age. Owners very helpful at start of rental, welcoming with a basket of fresh fruit and bottle of "Vino" Provided us with info on best places to eat......once they left they left you to enjoy your holiday. Thank You for sharing your home with us. Paul and Linda
