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. Velez Malaga is actually the administrative centre of Axarquia, with an economy still based on agriculture.

Things to do in Velez Malaga, Spain

Velez is a wonderful old village with origins dating back as far as the Phoenician era, and with monuments and styles dating from almost every era until the present day. There is a huge amount to see and explore as you tour the village, including many important archaeological discoveries. The impressive Fortaleza castle is impossible to miss, with its 16m tower standing proud in the middle of the Arrabal de San Sebastian district of the village. The Palace of Marquises of Benial and the Hospital of San Marcos are well worth visiting, and the charming churches of Santa Maria la Mayor and San Juan Bautista are charming places, both filled with beautiful pieces of religious art.

Velez Malaga is a cultural and gastronomic centre on the Costa del Sol. The modern theatre, Teatro del Carmen sees a huge number of performances, from traditional plays to classical music, flamenco dancing to literature readings. The annual festivals in the Palacio de Beniel are well worth investigating, especially the February Carnival, the Real Feria de San Miguel in October and the Feria de la Veladilla del Carmen in July.

Beautiful modern apartment within a quiet apartment complex.

4 of 5
We enjoyed an 18 night stay in July of this year. The area nearby, in particular the town of Torre del Mar was really lovely and we enjoyed a few visits at night for some tasty meals. The 'chiringuitos' serving chargrilled sardines are well worth a visit and you can enjoy a glass of wine while people watching along the busy promenade. The beach at Torre del Mar was also fantastic and great value at only €6 to rent two loungers and an umbrella for the whole day. Going down into the sea can be a bit pebbly, depending on how strong the waves are that day. The apartment itself was beautiful, and the owners had provided everything needed for a great holiday. The roof terrace was a nice space to spend the evening relaxing with a bbq. It can be a bit tricky going up and down what is quite a narrow spiral staircase and you would need to take care with small children. The one drawback for us was the internet connection and tv choice. We quickly discovered having one teenager and one pre-teen using Netflix and going online that we had no wifi about one week into our stay. After emailing the owner, we were told that there was a limit on the data usage and we had obviously exceeded it, with nothing else to be done. We were extremely disappointed with this as wifi is pretty much essential with two kids and checking the advertisement for the apartment again it does not say that the internet is limited. In this day and age, we as a family stream music and movies and this just wasn't possible. It also says that there is plenty of choice on the tv but unfortunately for us, we could only find one English speaking channel, which was Sky News. We therefore had to resort to using our own 4G data plans and even had to buy extra data so that we could watch a couple of sporting events on catch up tv on our tablet. This would be the only reason that we wouldn't book the apartment again, as the area of Velez-Malaga is definitely well worth a visit!

Very good apartment in a lovely resort

5 of 5
Just had 2 weeks (from 19 July 17) and the apartment meet all our needs. Louise was very helpful with the booking and met us on arrival to show us around the apartment. The fridge was stocked up with basic essentials and the wine went down well! If you want a good quiet location in Torre then this should suit as it's easy access to the beach (just over 5 minutes) It has a supermarket on the corner with butcher, baker and fish shop within a few minutes walk. Some good eating places just around the corner Jordi bar and La Vendimia with good fish places along the front. It's mainly a Spanish resort so the place is more relaxed and the people were nice. The pool area was clean, well maintained and manned all the time. Louise provided high chair, cot and brolly for the beach/pool area with cool bag/freezer packs available if needed. We loved it!
