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.

The Costa del Sol beaches are just 4km away, whilst the famous Baviera Golf Course and the endless fun of the Aquavelis Water Park can both be reached in just a few minutes drive from the town.

Wonderful Villa in a “real” Spanish town

5 of 5
What a privilege to spend two weeks in real Spain. The villa was a comfortable place to relax and as a base to be immersed in Velez-Malaga. The owners have ensured that it is fully equipped and functional, with modern conveniences to make it comfortable and care-free. The living quarters are tastefully furnished, bedrooms spacious and kitchen well-stocked, The thorough pre-arrival information about the villa, town and region was supremely accurate and placards posted in the villa had useful tips – this attention to detail was most appreciated. As the owners and other guests have pointed out, the large rooftop terrace is the best feature. From the outstanding views of mountains and the Mediterranean to seeing the town’s spires and neighborhoods, we spent many hours “up there.” Each spectacular sunset capped another fine day in Andalucía. The sights and sounds from the street offered a peek into Spanish life. At times we would peer over to see a guitarist strolling along, school children returning home, a vigorous game of some sort being played on a table that materialized on the cobblestones, and just life in general. There are many streets to explore in Velez-Malaga and during our second week we regularly walked through different neighborhoods, and even to Torre del Mar. There is no shortage of cafes, restaurants, cultural sites and shops to visit. We were impressed and moved by witnessing the many “Semana Santa” processions during Holy Week. Every evening the various Catholic churches and brotherhoods sponsored elaborate floats that moved slowly through the hilly and narrow streets, each carried on the shoulders of 150 parishioners. Bands and solemnly attired women, men and children marched in piety along with the floats, usually for up to six hours! All processions, sometimes six a night, went through Plaza de la Constitucion, a very short walk from the villa. If you fly into Malaga as we did (after being in northern Germany) you may wish to consider hiring Geoff from the Spanish Management firm to transport you to the villa, particularly if you are a first-time visitor. Not only does he know the best route to make luggage transit easier, he is intimately familiar with the region despite being a U.K transplant. Once in the villa he provided a thorough briefing so we felt right at home. We definitely plan to return at some point and stay even longer. Our gratitude to owners Pat and Marilyn for opening their lovely villa for us. Saludos!

Relaxing and Quiet Location

4 of 5
The apartment is in a quiet location of Torre Del Mar. Very close to the beach and around 10 minutes walk to the main bars and restaurants. The owner was easily contactable and responded to requests promptly. It was very clean and comfortable and is East facing which means that the sun leaves the balcony at around 11.30 a.m. during the winter. There are 3 bedrooms, however, with the current configuration of beds, it is more suited to a maximum of 5 people and not 6. There is a Futon which although it was comfortable it is not suitable as a double bed for two adults. The apartment could benefit from having a Kettle and some saucepans. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend that area of Torre Del Mar for those looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday.
