Costa del Sol villas

Found on the coast of Andalucía in southern Spain, the stretch of coastline known as the Costa del Sol is extremely popular with tourists and you can stay in a Costa del Sol villa at any time of year and still enjoy glorious sunshine. The area has activities and entertainment to suit everyone, from inviting bars and exciting water sports to shopping for souvenirs at a colourful local market.  A journey to the Costa del Sol will also give you the chance to explore further inland, where you can discover an array of Spanish charms amidst the landscape of rolling green hills, lush vineyards and traditional villages.

A Costa del Sol villa can be found close to many towns and resorts which all offer their own highlights. Resorts like Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmadena provide something for every age of tourist with a variety of sports, restaurants, a lively nightlife and attractions such as the Tivoli World amusement park. 

A villa in the Costa del Sol close to Marbella and its neighbour Puerto Banus however, will offer a completely different and more sophisticated atmosphere.  Awash with designer stores, unique boutiques and trendy bars, these areas are renowned for attracting the rich and famous.  If you would like to take an excursion to some of the exciting areas close to the Costa del Sol, the places that you can visit include the famous Rock of Gibraltar and the historic Granada.

The beaches of the Costa del Sol are spread over 100km of coastline and boast a selection of golden sands that vary in size and quality.  The majority of the beaches are made up of soft sands and have a number of activity centres, which make them ideal for entertaining families that are staying in a Costa del Sol villa.  Aside from building castles and sunbathing, guests can also enjoy more adventurous pursuits such as surfing, jet skiing and scuba diving.

The Costa del Sol is heavily influenced by tourism and as such there are a vast number of cafés, ice-cream parlours and restaurants that line the main promenades.  The cuisine that’s available in the area mainly consists of international dishes, including plenty of British fare, which means that there is something to please the taste of every guest staying in a villa in the Costa del Sol.  For more authentic cuisine you can head further inland to find some amazing tapas bars and traditional Spanish restaurants.  Groups of friends and couples looking to take advantage of the area’s bustling nightlife whilst at a Costa del Sol villa can head to one of the many vibrant nightclubs or bars, or perhaps to one of Marbella’s more refined piano bars.

You can still see some of Spain’s heritage and culture amidst the bustling resorts in the form of pretty harbours, narrow cobbled streets and characterful houses.  Out of all of the main tourist areas, the city of Malaga is regarded as one of the most popular for sightseeing and has some of the most historic monuments.  With a Moorish fortress dating back to 1065, a Baroque cathedral, a number of historic churches and a selection of museums, there are plenty of sights to keep you occupied.  The city is also known for being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and if you are staying in a Costa del Sol villa close by you can enjoy many museums and venues opened in his honour.

If you want to enjoy some activities that don’t involve the beach, there are still plenty of options.  Golf is an increasingly popular sport in the area and there are over 60 courses where novices can get to grips with their swing and pros can really test their skills.  If you are looking to explore the natural sights surrounding a Costa del Sol villa, then take the opportunity to indulge in a scenic bike tour or a thrilling jeep safari.  Families seeking a fun day out can enjoy trips to a selection of zoos and theme parks, whereas those simply wanting to experience the culture of their new settings can try a spot of shopping or treat themselves to some delicious tapas. 

Whether you are looking for a relaxing family siesta by the beach or a fiery fiesta with friends after the sun goes down, it is easy to find the right accommodation for your needs.  Browse the website and choose from a range of properties that vary in location, size and facilities.  To help you to decide which one is right for you, each Costa del Sol villa listed is accompanied by photographs and additional area information.
