How to holiday on a budget on the Costa del Sol

We love holidays, but we know that they can be expensive and difficult to afford when you’re on a budget. However, the good news is that the cost of living here on the Costa del Sol is significantly cheaper than in the UK and most parts of Europe and there are loads of great things to do which are completely free! If you look out for deals and follow a few simple tips, you can have an amazing holiday on the Costa del Sol on a budget.

Here are some of our top tips

  1. Travel as a group and book a villa

If you’re travelling with a large group, you can get an incredible deal per person per night and have a stunning villa too. While they look expensive, splitting them between three families for example makes them much more affordable than staying in a hotel. Plus, because you have the space to relax, cook and enjoy the facilities, you spend a lot less money on eating out and it is much more relaxing too.  Check out our villas with pools

  1. Eat, drink and be merry like the Spanish do

The Spanish locals are price sensitive and so cafes, bars and restaurants catering to locals are significantly cheaper than tourist places and offer a more authentic experience. They don’t tend to be the most beautiful places – expect plastic chairs and strip lighting, but the atmosphere and food tend to be great and you can still get a small beer or a coffee for 1€, or a three course meal for 10€ in some places, so follow the Spanish to the busiest places and you’ll definitely get a bargain.

  1. Pack a picnic

When you’re staying in a holiday rental you can save a fortune by stocking up at the supermarket, making up a delicious picnic, or some snacks and drinks and taking it with you. We love a picnic on the beach for lunch, or a few beers as the sun goes down and it’s cheap as chips if you take it with you. Be prepared on a day out with a reusable water bottle and snacks too so you avoid having to spend money when you’re thirsty and hot. There are water fountains everywhere so you can keep topping up and you’re minimising plastic use too!

  1. Enjoy the free activities

Over the summer there are hundreds of free activities going on along the Costa del Sol, from concerts to ferias, magic shows, talks, dance classes and activities for the kids. Ask at the tourist office, or check out one of the local area guides online, then head along and enjoy the fun totally free! For families with kids, the many playgrounds are a godsend and of course a stroll by the sea and a trip to the beach is perfect family fun. Many holiday rentals even have toys and games to take out with you, or enjoy at your apartment or villa, so you don’t need to buy things to keep them entertained.

  1. Book online and look out for money saving coupons or special days
  • If you are going to one of the summer ferias and want to take the kids on the rides look out for the “Día del Niño” every fair has one and rides are often 1€, or half price, which really saves you a lot.
  • Pick up any coupons you see around for the attractions like water parks and theme parks, but then check online before you buy, as it’s often a lot cheaper booking online ahead of time and you can also skip the queues.
  • Look for later entry tickets to waterparks, which can result in a massive discount but still give you quite enough time to enjoy the experience
  • Look out for packs of offers for different activities such as the ones from Selwo which offers a combined price for a number of different activities, but then check online to ensure that it adds up compared to buying them individually online

There are lots of other fantastic money saving tips from Money Saving Expert on their website which could save you a fortune.

We have recently dropped the price on this great one bedroom penthouse in La Cala by 20%. It is a great centrally located property, just 400 meters from the beach and a five-minute walk into town. It sleeps four people and costs from just 66€ per day, so is an excellent base for a great value holiday on the Costa del Sol. Check out more budget holiday homes on our website, or contact us for more information on great value holiday rentals.

Holidaying on the Costa del Sol like a local

People often ask us how to have a true Spanish experience on their next holiday. Staying in a holiday rental is a good start, as you have a home-from-home and can cook, relax and enjoy the amazing weather in comfort from day one. We will also supply you with an information pack with recommendations of the best places to visit near your holiday rental, as well as supermarkets, banks and practicalities of living in Spain, so you feel right at home.

Here are a few tips from our holiday rental advisors, who all live and work here on the Costa del Sol, on how to really holiday like a local this year.

Enjoy the perfect beach day – Spanish summers are all about the beach and Spanish families typically camp out all day long, bringing amazing amounts of supplies to make their stay comfortable. After a lazy breakfast in your holiday rental, gather your towels, snacks, cooler, sun cream, beach chairs and parasols and set up to be there until the sun goes down. Check out our tips for visiting the beach for more info.

Join the crowds at an event – The Spanish love to do everything en masse and so heading along to an event is a great way to feel at home and join in the fun. Whether you choose a traditional feria or a concert you will have an amazing experience and see how the Spanish party!

Hire a car or choose your location wisely – Public transport options are limited here on the Costa del Sol. If you want to explore the area, visit the nearby tourist attractions and fill your time with activities, you don’t want to be stuck waiting for buses. Hiring a car is a good option, which will make you feel like a local and give you total freedom. However, if you’d rather not hire a car, then base yourself in one of the towns along the train line from Malaga to Fuengirola. This makes travelling a lot easier, and the towns themselves have plenty to see and do on foot.

Make the most of the amazing Spanish foodThe Costa del Sol is a foodie’s paradise, with a huge range of wonderful restaurants and tapas bars. The produce is fresh, delicious and excellent value and new gourmet markets are springing up along the coast. For the full experience, make sure you go to a chiringuito or beach restaurant for lunch and enjoy fresh seafood grilled over a wood fire (espeto), a selection of fried fish such as boquerones al limon, calamares and cazon en adobo and try a paella. Lunches here are long and leisurely and paellas normally take about 45 minutes to come, so snack on the fish and salad first and only order a paella for 2 people, even in a group of 5 or more, so you can all enjoy a selection. Try a tapas crawl one evening, moving between places and ordering a few dishes to share in each. This will allow you to sample lots of amazing food and find your favourite dishes and places for the rest of the holiday.

We hope you have an amazing holiday here on the Costa del Sol and that these tips help you have an authentic experience that you’ll never forget. Browse our collection of holiday homes and book online. There are still a few properties available for this summer, but they are booking up fast. Please contact us with your requirements for a last minute summer break and we can send you a shortlist.

Sporty holidays on the Costa del Sol

You are spoilt for choice if you want to play sports on the Costa del Sol, so why not incorporate it into your next holiday?

Water sports are plentiful and a great option for being active in the hot summer months. Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is all the rage right now and you can hire boards all along the coast. There are jet skis to hire, not to mention banana boat rides and parasailing. For the more adventurous, look into sea kayak tours in places like Nerja, where you can explore the coves and enjoy the crystal clear waters with an experienced guide.

Golf is a huge draw for tourists to the Costa del Sol as we have so many fantastic courses within a small area. Wherever you decide to be based, you are never far from a course, and you can choose between a driving range, nine hole or championship courses, depending on your skill and preferences. If you are visiting in the summer this is the low season for golf, so there are some good deals available and we have teamed up with Golf Two4One to allow you access to some amazing offers. Simply email our reception and we will provide you with a card free of charge.

Tennis and Padel are also incredibly popular here and there are some excellent tennis clubs all along the Costa del Sol which are open to non-members. Padel tennis is a massive sport here and is like a mix between tennis and squash. Many of the larger developments will have their own tennis and padel courts which residents and guests can use free of charge. Please ask us when you book your holiday rental and we’ll let you know what facilities are available. There are also municipal tennis and padel facilities, which are excellent value for money. Ask in your local tourist office for one close to you and how to book the courts, as it’s not always obvious.

Cycling is a sport which is booming here and hiring a bike is a great way to explore, as well as getting you active. Start easy by heading to the seafront promenade and enjoy the flat terrain and the amazing views, or head into the hills for some serious mountain biking. Read our guide to cycling holidays on the Costa del Sol.

Last but not least, one of the nicest (and cheapest) activities is to walk and explore the area on foot. Once again the paseo is the easiest and prettiestplace to do this and you can walk for miles along this beautiful coastal path. There are also a number of excellent hiking routes in the hills and you can also take walking tours to see the sights. We love exploring Marbella on foot and there are some great routes in town, along the seafront and in the hills.

As you can see, there’s a huge range of sports to enjoy as part of your next holiday on the Costa del Sol. If sports are important to you, please let us know when you enquire about your holiday home. This allows us to advise you on the best properties with communal sports facilities, or the right place to stay for a golf holiday.

Tips for visiting the beaches of the Costa del Sol

Spring has most definitely sprung here on the Costa del Sol and after the showers and rain over April, May has brought us some beautiful summer weather and seen many of us lucky residents hit the beach. Of course we’re spoilt for choice here, with 25 beaches awarded Blue Flag status in 2018 and miles and miles of stunning coastline. Check out our article on the best beaches on the Costa del Sol to help you choose where to go on your next holiday.

Wherever you choose, here are five tips for making the most of your beach experience –

  1. Come prepared – You will notice that the Spanish arrive at the beach with everything but the kitchen sink. It’s normal for families to bring gazebos, chairs, tables, coolers full of drinks, ice, food and lots of toys and games for the kids. While this may seem a little over the top to us, it certainly makes sure they are comfortable and enjoy the whole day on the sand. We’d suggest bringing an umbrella, or choosing a location with easy access to the shade, or if you have kids bringing one of those pop up tents to give them a place to play and relax out of the sun. The low beach chairs are much more comfortable than just a towel and fold up pretty small. Buckets and spades, a bat and ball and a football keep the kids entertained. Don’t forget plenty of water, some snacks and sun cream. If you can carry it all, that should keep you hydrated, comfortable and entertained and allow you to stay there the whole day.
  2. Go to a chiringuito – The beach restaurants are legendary for their fresh fish, cool drinks and great atmosphere and are perfect for a long, lazy lunch this summer. If you don’t want to lug a load of stuff with you for your beach day, many of them have sunloungers which you can hire for a small daily fee and allow you to relax in comfort, get some shade, pop in for a drink, use the toilets and enjoy a fantastic lunch at the beach. Heaven!
  3. Go to a jellyfish free area – Last summer there was a serious problem with jellyfish, which kept many people out of the sea. We hope this won’t recur this year, as it depends on weather and wind conditions, but if it does while you are on holiday, look out for the jelly fish free areas. Marbella’s councillor for beaches has arranged for floating play parks to add an area of water screened by nets and floats, which will offer a safe bathing area even when there are jellyfish around. Beaches will include San Pedro, Puerto Banús, Nueva Andalucía, Estrella de Mar and Marbella Playa in Las Chapas. Find out more
  4. Protect your skin – The sun here is very strong and you do not want to burn, so make sure you liberally apply high protection sun cream before you leave your holiday rental, seek shade between 11 and 3 where possible, wear a hat, sunglasses and coverup to protect your skin and keep reapplying that sun screen every few hours.
  5. Look out for a nearby kiosko – On the promenade there are lots of little huts selling beach essentials from cold water and ice cream, to buckets and spades and things for the kids. Many of them also sell very good value beer and plastic cups for you to take down to the beach for a cheeky sundowner, but you need to ask for it, as they don’t normally put it on display.

If access to beautiful beaches is top of your wish list, then check out our collection of beachside holiday homes. These are perfect for beach lovers, as they are either within walking distance of, or a very short drive away from, sand and sea.

Treat your loved one to a romantic minibreak for Valentine’s Day

Treat your loved one to a romantic minibreak for Valentine’s Day

We’re romantics here at HolidayRentalontheWeb and adore making big gestures for the ones we love. There’s no better time to do that than Valentine’s Day and no better way than whisking them off for a minibreak.

You may not think of visiting the Costa del Sol this time of year, but it’s a great time to visit, as the great festival of “Carneval” is in full swing with parades, events and fun activities. Not only that, but there’s so much romance and passion here and some lovely things that you can do for that special someone. Here are a few ideas –

  1. Stroll down the seafront promenade hand in hand and sip Spanish champagne looking at the waves. Watch the sun set over Gibraltar and marvel at the outline of the Rift mountains of Africa visible in the distance.
  2. Treat yourselves to a gastronomic experience to remember in one of the Costa del Sol’s wonderful restaurants and gourmet markets. We have something to suit all budgets and tastes, from a delicious selection of tapas in a little bar, to a seven course taster menu in a Michelin starred restaurant.
  3. Visit the beautiful white villages inland from the coast, such as Casares, Ojen and Istan.
  4. Take in the culture at the incredible art galleries in Málaga, or simply enjoy shopping, eating and drinking in this incredible city.
  5. Discover the wines in Ronda by visiting the bodegas and enjoying wine tastings with the makers

If you are planning a romantic break, please let us know, so we can advise you on the best properties to choose. We can also arrange special treats for you, like champagne, chocolates and flowers on arrival, or get you a booking at the most romantic restaurants near your holiday rental.

Have a very happy and romantic Valentine’s and we hope to be able to make it even more special!

Start planning your 2019 getaways

Start planning your 2019 getaways

We love January, as we can start planning our next trip and dream of sunny skies and holidays. If your thoughts are turning to this year’s trips too, here are a few great times to visit the Costa del Sol.

Easter – This is a fabulous time to visit the Costa del Sol, with so much more than the Easter bunny! It’s a time of processions and parades and an incredible display of religious devotion. Andalucia really does it in style, parading wonderful sculptures and art works through the streets and often accompanying it with music. Málaga is the most famous place to go for Easter in this region, but all towns and villages put on a great show and it’s a wonderful time to visit.

Summer – It will not surprise you that the most popular time to visit is the summer, when the hot weather, beautiful beaches and great “ferias” (week-long celebrations) draw thousands of tourists to the Costa del Sol. However, this doesn’t just mean July and August. If you aren’t restricted by school holidays, wonderful times to visit are June and September, where the temperatures aren’t as high and the area isn’t as crowded, but you can still enjoy the full summer experience.

Halloween – If you’re not a fan of the over commercialised Halloween celebrations in the UK, come over and see how it’s done here. The 1st of November is the Day of the Dead, when families honour their relatives by visiting the cemetery. Also, at the end of October is the Saints Festival in Ojen and Istan near Marbella, and the Chestnut festival in Alcaucín. These traditional celebrations are really interesting and a great way to see another side of Halloween.

Christmas and Three Kings – I know we’ve just taken down the decorations, but we have to mention Christmas as part of this run down of wonderful times to visit, as it’s such a gorgeous time to come. The weather is mild, the decorations are beautiful, there’s lots of lovely activities for the family to enjoy and it’s so nice to get away from the chaos of family responsibilities and have a special Christmas your way. Read our article to Christmas on the Costa del Sol and get inspired for this year’s festivities.

Whenever you choose to come, make sure you browse our site for the best Costa del Sol holiday rentals. We have an excellent selection of properties all along the coast and can send you a shortlist of the ones which best suit your needs. Don’t hesitate to contact us for advice on where to stay and what sorts of properties are best, depending on your group and the time of year you are visiting. Our holiday rental experts are here to help you make the best choice and have an amazing holiday.

Autumn in Spain

Autumn in Spain

Summer just flew by, but if you’re thinking you’ve missed your chance to take a holiday to Spain before next year, think again! Autumn is an amazing time to visit the Costa del Sol. In fact, if you ask most local residents they will tell you that September and October are their favourite times of year.

We love autumn because the weather is still sunny and warm, but nights are cooler and more comfortable to sleep in. There’s still plenty of people around, but the hoards of tourists have left us for another year and you don’t need to worry about whether you’ll get into a restaurant or find a parking space. The sea is warm, after the summer spent heating it up and the beach bars and restaurants are still open, but without the crowds.

There are still some nice ferias and events going on this time of year too, if you know where to look. The Torremolinos Feria is a great one to visit on the last week of September and the San Pedro de Alcantara feria is usually held mid to late October, so you don’t need to miss out on any of the fun.

Film buffs will enjoy the Marbella International Film Festival from the 10th to the 14th of October. This festival screens short films, documentaries and international movies at the TeatroGoya cinema in Puerto Banus and offers events and workshops for budding filmmakers too.

If you’re committed to your fitness, there are some nice sports events this time of year. Serious runners could compete in Marbella’s half marathon on the 6th of October. If walking is more your style, you can join the thousands of people who take to the streets for Marbella 4 Days Walking from the 11th to the 14th of October. Alternatively, if you’d rather watch than play, why not check out some of the world’s best tennis players compete in the Senior Masters Cup in Marbella on the 29th of September.

Because it’s cooler, you can have a more active holiday, so hiking or mountain biking to explore the beautiful countryside just back from the coast is a great idea. It’s a lovely time for a round or two of golf as well, and the Costa del Sol is a true golfers’ paradise at this time of the year. We welcome a lot of people for golf holidays in September and October due to the weather, the amazing condition of the courses and the lower cost of flights and accommodation. Golfers can choose from self-catering apartments or villas right on the fairways, or down on the beach or in the town for the best of both worlds.

We think you’ll love autumn on the Costa del Sol as much as we do! Please feel free to browse our holiday rental properties and find your perfect home-from-home. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

How to travel around the Costa del Sol this summer

How to travel around the Costa del Sol this summer

Are you planning your holiday to the Costa del Sol? How exciting! It’s brilliant to look forward to a week or two in the Spanish sunshine, but we know there’s lots of things to think about.

At HolidayRentalontheWeb we have been helping tourists have the best holiday for 15 years, by providing stunning holiday rental properties and offering insider advice on where to go, what to do and how to really enjoy this great destination to the full.

One of the things we are often asked is how to get around, so we wanted to focus on this for today’s post. We’ve spoken to Denise Wright, our Client Services Supervisor, and asked her to answer the most commonly asked questions about getting around the Costa del Sol to help you to plan.

How do I get from the airport to my holiday rental?

If you’re staying in the towns of Malaga, Torremolinos, Benalmadena or Fuengirola, the airport is connected by the train and there are also frequent buses.

If you are staying in Marbella, there is an excellent airport bus which takes around 45 minutes and goes to Marbella bus station. Once there, you’ll need to take a cab to your holiday rental.

Outside the main towns, public transport is limited, so you’d need to get a cab or a transfer if you don’t want to hire a car. We find that transfers are better value if you are a group of four or more, otherwise it’s quite similar pricewise.

Can I use public transport to get around?

It really depends what you want to do and where you are staying. Within the main towns there are decent bus routes and you’ll find you can walk most places. However if you’re staying outside of these areas, or on urbanisations out of town then you won’t find it practical to rely on public transport.

Should I hire a car?

Hiring a car gives you most flexibility, especially if you’re not staying in a centrally located holiday rental. It is good for people who want to explore several towns during their stay and visit the attractions. If you are visiting in peak time, make sure you book your hire car in advance, as they can be hard to find.

Are there any other ways of getting around that you’d recommend?

There are miles of wonderful seafront promenades running along the Costa del Sol. So if you’re staying by the beach, then walking or cycling can be a very good way of getting around and enjoying the view.

We’ve mentioned hiring a car, but another option is to hire mopeds. These are great fun and very easy to use if you don’t want to travel big distances. They are affordable, you can hire them with a normal car licence and parking is very easy, so they are a good option in the summer.

Taxis are available, although can be difficult to get in peak months. Uber has just recently been launched here and covers the area from Malaga to Marbella. Tourists are finding this easier to use, as they can do everything on the app and can see the prices too.

Finally, there are some private transfer companies which will take you to your holiday rental from the airport and can also do day trips and restaurant transfers too.

 

If you have any other questions which aren’t included here, please feel free to comment below and we’ll get them answered for you. Alternatively, you can send an email to info@holidayrentalontheweb.com and we’ll get right back to you.

You can read lots of useful advice on our blog, or download our free holiday guide to find out more about this great area. If you haven’t got your accommodation sorted yet, search for holiday rental properties on our website, or contact us for last minute bookings and we’ll let you know what properties we have available that match your criteria.

Top Tips for Enjoying the Costa del Sol Waterparks

Costa del Sol Waterparks

August is the time when most families come and enjoy the Costa del Sol and take a well-earned break during the summer holidays. It is a wonderful family destination, with so many things to do and a great selection of holiday rental properties, which are perfect when you’re travelling with children. If you’re planning to visit a waterpark during your next holiday, there are three along the Costa del Sol to try:

Aqualand Torremolinos – The biggest along the coast is in Torremolinos, within easy reach of the airport. There’s loads to do there, with 19 different attractions to enjoy. Buying a fast pass is recommended, as queues can be long.

AquaMijas – Located in Fuengirola this is a smaller park, but good for a mix of ages. It has 12 attractions, as well as a nice area for younger kids and this year they opened a new Jacuzzi and slides.

Bahia Park Algeciras – If you’re staying on the western Costa del Sol, between Estepona and Gibraltar, this is a very good option and is actually getting the best reviews on TripAdvisor. Although it isn’t the biggest, it is cheaper and less busy than the other parks, so might be worth a look, even if you’re further afield. It has 17 different attractions to enjoy and this year expanded its area for younger children. We found this was a good option for young children, as if you’re 1.20 meters or more, you can pretty much go on everything.

Here are a few insider tips to help you enjoy a trip to the waterpark to the full.

  1. Book your tickets online – you will get the best deals and you can often skip the queues
  2. Wear waterproof shoes – The floors get very hot and can be slippery and it’s quite easy to bash your feet when you’re walking around or zooming down the slides. Beach or swim shoes are great to protect your feet.
  3. Get there early – Parking can be tricky and queues long, so get there early and choose a weekday to avoid the stress and make the most of the entry fee.
  4. Pack drinks and snacks – You are able to bring in your own food and drinks as long as it’s not in glass bottles and this can save you a lot of money throughout the day and avoid wasting time queuing.
  5. Budget for a sunbed and rings – You have to pay extra to have a sunbed, which can come as a surprise for a lot of visitors. They are not very expensive, but make sure you have cash so you can get a few. It’s well worth the investment if you’re going to be there for a whole day. We tend to just get a couple for the adults, as the kids are more than happy running around and then sharing yours when they want a rest or a bite to eat. To cut down on queuing it can be a good idea to hire some extra rings, this does add to the cost, but the kids will thank you for it.

A day at the waterpark is not a cheap day out, but it is a lot of fun!

However don’t worry if this is out of budget, there is a cheaper option which can keep the whole family happy. Head to the beach and look for one of the large inflatable play areas in the sea. These are really challenging, but loads of fun, trying to climb the obstacles and get round the course. This can keep older kids (and the young at heart) happy for hours. They charge either by the hour, or for a whole day for those who have the energy.

While the older kids are burning energy there, the younger ones will be happy if you provide them with a bucket and spade. Other things we always have in the beach bag are a bat and ball, a football and some activity books and colours. Pack snacks, drinks and sandwiches and enjoy your day!!

We are experts on the Costa del Sol, with an experienced team of professionals who know the area inside out. Our selection of holiday rental properties are ideal for families, offering flexibility, space and a home-from-home where everyone can relax.

Gastronomy on the Costa del Sol

Gastronomy on the Costa del Sol

Spain is flying high in the culinary stakes at the moment, with seven Spanish restaurants making it into the coveted World’s 50 Best Restaurants List. Three of those seven made it into the top 10, which is an amazing feat. However, it’s not really a surprise, given the rich food culture in Spain, the excellent quality local produce and passion for eating out which runs through the whole society.

Andalucia has a fabulous food heritage. It is famous for its fish dishes, hams and produces wonderful wines and sherries. The locally grown fruit and vegetables and the fresh fish available on its coastline means that delicious food awaits you at even the most humble restaurant.

There are an enormous array of restaurants to choose from. They start with the cheap and cheerful “ventas” which specialise in Menu del Dia set menus which can be under 10€ and offer a great way to enjoy local favourites at an excellent price.

However, it’s not just simple fare on offer! The Costa del Sol has a number of amazing Michelin starred restaurants too. These are a foodie’s dream, with the finest ingredients prepared in the most elaborate ways. Most offer taster menus to allow you to really experience the best dishes on the menu and recommend you go for the wine pairing for the full monty. They are not cheap of course, but they are wonderful if you want something very special.

Marbella has the most Michelin star restaurants, with Skina, Messina and Restaurant Dani Garcia all having one Michelin star. If you’re staying in a holiday rental in Elviria you’re very close to the amazing El Lago, which also boasts a star. Visitors to Fuengirola have a huge number of great restaurants to choose from, with El Sollo showcasing the very best local fresh water fish and caviar.

Please ask us for our recommendations for great places to eat near your holiday rental. There are restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes in all the areas where we have properties, but it can be hard to know which ones to choose.

But of course it’s not all about the restaurants! If you’re staying in a holiday rental, a trip to the local market is a must. Juicy ripe tomatoes and local artisan cheese, Jabugo ham, fresh bread and olives makes for a perfect light lunch. You could even try making your own gazpacho, a classic Andalusian dish – it’s very easy to make. If you want a barbeque, the locally produced beef from Cadiz has a stellar reputation and the tuna down the coast in Barbate is some of the best. With ingredients this good, plus a fully equipped kitchen and barbeque, you’re sure to make a feast.

Another treat for foodies is the increasing number of gourmet markets opening up around the Costa del Sol. Last year Marbella’s gourmet market opened, with its stalls, bars and lovely atmosphere and it has become a firm favourite with tourists and locals alike. Estepona is following the trend and opened their gourmet market last month, with the difference being that they offer table service from all the different stalls, for a more relaxing experience.

By booking a holiday rental on the Costa del Sol you have the flexibility to enjoy browsing the local shops and markets and cooking when you want to, or popping out to restaurants, knowing you have a home from home to return to. We know whatever you do, you’ll love the food and the restaurants on the Costa del Sol and if you’re like us, then it will be one of the highlights of your holiday!
