Villas in the Costa del Sol
For a holiday break by the sea, spacious and offering more privacy we recommend you to book a villa. The province of Málaga is a great area where to get immersed in the festive spirit of the south, with a strong presence of youngsters and adults alike looking for sun and fun in Puerto Banús, Marbella or Málaga. If you book a villa near Nerja, Fuengirola, Mijas or Torremolinos, you will be closer to the beach. On the contrary, if your idea of the perfect holiday is a quiet area, surrounded by nature and mesmerising landscape, Sierra de las Nieves and Antequera range are the best sceneries with properties scattered in its hillsides.Fantastic villas with swimming pools
