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.

The modern theatre, Teatro del Carmen sees a huge number of performances, from traditional plays to classical music, flamenco dancing to literature readings.

We enjoyed it so much we've booked back up again this year.

Everything from my initial contact with Su, to booking, arrival and the holiday itself was perfect! Su went out of her way to give me as much information and help as she could with booking our family Christmas holiday. As we were arriving on Christmas Day, Su recommended that I did an online shop with Mercadona, which I did and had delivered on Christmas Eve. Su very kindly put the shopping away, so when we arrived all we had to do was prepare our Christmas Day BBQ! And open the Cava! The villa is very spacious, well maintained and perfect for large family groups. Everyone can have their own space if they want it, and the outside dining area and living spaces, were perfect for sitting down together to celebrate Christmas and play party games. It was just perfect! We also loved the walk down into Torre del Mar, which has a good variety of shops and restaurants. We would highly recommend the Argentinian restaurant El Fogon, they served the best steaks we have ever tasted anywhere, and is very reasonably priced. Su was very helpful answering calls and queries before and during our stay, which was very much appreciated. We would highly recommend booking this villa and would love to go again one day. Thank you Su and Sam.
