Start planning your 2022 getaways!

We love January, as we can start planning our next trip and dream of sunny skies and holidays. With the potential ease of Covid-19 restrictions on the horizon, why not let your thoughts turn to this year’s trips: here are a few great times to visit the Costa del Sol.


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. Andalucía really does it in style, parading wonderful sculptures and art works through the streets and often accompanying it with music. Malaga 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.


It will not surprise you that the most popular time to visit is the summer, with the hot weather, beautiful beaches and great “ferias” (week-long celebrations) drawing 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.


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.

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.

Make a splash this summer – Holiday Villas with Private Pools

Family Outside Relaxing In Swimming PoolOne of the most enjoyable things about a family holiday on the Costa del Sol is hanging out by the pool, soaking up the sun, with kids swimming and playing together and being able to pop inside for an ice cream, delicious lunch, snack or a cold glass of wine. This is a real luxury, but also so convenient, especially for families with young kids that still need a nap during the day. Plus, because you can have a great time at the villa, you can really relax and can actually end up saving money as you’re eating at home.

We have a great selection of villas with private pools available for holiday rental on the Costa del Sol this summer. Please note these villas are always in high demand, so if you are planning on coming this summer (especially during kids’ holidays) we’d recommend you book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Here are three of our top picks:

3 Bed villa with private pool Riviera

This detached villa in the quiet residential area of Riviera del Sol, is just 400 meters away from the beach and also close to supermarkets, bars, restaurants and a tennis club with mini-golf. The location and practical layout with comfortable lounge and dining area, fully equipped kitchen and three good sized double bedrooms offers a great base for a family holiday.  There is a shaded terrace, a sweet garden and of course the all-important pool. Riviera is just 36 km from Malaga airport. Please note that the villa is already fully booked for June and the first week of July, so early booking is recommended.

Holiday Rental Villa Benalmadena

Not only does this 3 bed, 2 bath villa have a lovely private pool, a large garden with terraces, and a courtyard complete with lemon tree, but it also boasts stunning sea views, so it’s great for people who love to live al fresco. The pool area is gated, so perfect for a young family, and it’s a really comfortable home from home. The location of Benalmadena is a great choice for families as there’s loads to do in Benalmadena itself, plus it’s close to the airport and connected by train to Malaga and Fuengirola so you can do without a car. It’s already booked for August and the last week in July, but has availability in June, July and September.

Holiday Rental Villa Estepona

This lovely, modern 4 bedroom villa located between Estepona and San Pedro offers a luxurious and comfortable base for your holiday which you will love to call home! It sleeps 8 people, features a large kitchen, comfortable living room and dining area and modern bathrooms. The outside space is great, with a covered terrace for dining, a lawn area and a large pool, which is a real joy. The complex that the villa is located on has tennis courts, a swimming pool and a children’s play area so the kids certainly won’t get bored. Plus it’s close to Selwo Safari Park, and the lovely town of Estepona.

We have a wide selection of Costa del Sol holiday rentals on our website, including beachside villas, golf villas and luxury holiday homes. Please feel free to browse, or contact us with your requirements and we’ll send you a list of properties to suit you. 

Family holidays in Spain just got easier

ryanair_logoThe Costa del Sol has always been a popular destination for families looking for an easy place to enjoy a holiday in the sun. The Spanish love kids and are happy to accommodate them everywhere you go  and the beaches, zoos, playgrounds, parks, water parks and attractions available are sure to keep them busy whatever their age. We have a great guide to things to do in and around Marbella which you can download for free from our sister site, so you can get the kids excited and plan your trip and be ready for lots of fun as soon as you arrive.

We love seeing companies helping out families and catering for their needs, so we were delighted to see Ryanair’s new Family Extra service which includes a range of discounts and an improved service. There are a number of benefits which will really help families financially and practically when travelling – a 50 per cent reduction on allocated seating charges for children, a free 5kg infant bag allowance, discount priority boarding for large families and reduced infant fees of €25 (£20). They also accept car seats on board and have baby changing facilities and bottle warming on board.

Our holiday rental properties are great for families looking for space, privacy and flexibility where you can create a home from home for the kids and enjoy your holiday around nap times, meal times and bed times. We have spacious apartments on one level if you’re concerned about stairs and want communal facilities so the kids can make friends. Alternatively we also have a great range of villas with private pools and gardens which work really well for large family groups wanting to spread out and have a luxurious and relaxing holiday on the Costa del Sol. We can also arrange airport pick-ups, extra housekeeping services and a welcome pack of essential groceries so everything is ready when you arrive. Please just ask.

Foreign Tourist Customer Service in Marbella

The Costa del Sol has become one of the world’s leading holiday destinations, not just for the superb weather and huge choice of activities, but also because tourists feel safe and welcome here. We all go on holiday to relax and have fun so this is a really important factor, especially when traveling with family.

To reinforce the position of Marbella as an international tourist destination, the Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, and the Secretary of State for Security, Francisco Martínez, signed an agreement for the creation of a Foreign Tourist Customer Service (FTCS).

This means that foreign citizens can use the FTCS to help with a number of security or safety related matters including lost credit cards and documents. The personalised service is primarily in English and is open to foreign tourists and residents alike. This service operates from the existing Tourism offices in Plaza de los Naranjos.

Should an accident/incident occur whilst you are on holiday in Marbella, you can at least have peace of mind that there is someone to help in English and advise you of the procedures to follow. “The fact that a tourist feels safe is a competitive factor for a destination resort”, said Martínez.

This part of Spain is renowned for safety, with many of the urbanizations having 24/7 gated security, video phones and alarm systems so you can just relax and enjoy your holiday! All our holiday homes are safe and secure, just ask us if you would like to know more about a particular urbanization or visit our website to find the perfect holiday apartment or villa in Marbella.

Family holidays on a budget

After all the unpredictable weather in the UK, you may be starting to think ahead to your summer about some time away, but with most of us on a tight budget, a sunshine break away for the whole family can seem like a luxury we can’t really afford. Or can we?

The Costa del Sol has been a favourite holiday destination for years due to the excellent climate and choice of things to do for the whole family. Just a few hours from the UK by plane, it can take less time to get here than it does to drive to many places in the UK and thanks to budget airlines, you can be sunbathing in Spain for as little as €25!

All the time, the airlines that regularly fly between Spain and the UK, are trying to expand to have more seats and cheaper fares available for their customers. This means that there are even more reasons to holiday in Spain!

Now you just need to pick somewhere to stay! If you are on a budget this year, renting a holiday home in Spain for a week or two can work out a lot cheaper than staying a hotel, especially if you are traveling with family. For instance, a 3 bedroom apartment in Fuengirola, (based on 6 people sharing) can work out at less than €100 per person for a whole week’s accommodation! There are loads of stunning areas to choose from depending on what you want from your holiday. Whether you want to be near the beach, somewhere with land for the dog, or somewhere tranquil yet not too far from amenities, you can find it all on the Costa del Sol. Here are some of the more popular tourist areas;

  • Marbella – One of the world’s most prestigious resort towns and a favourite with celebrities.

  • Fuengirola – One of the top destinations on the Costa del Sol, largely due to its long beach promenade lined with bars and restaurants, busy night life and abundance of things to do. Amongst other things, Fuengirola has a water-park, a Zoo, a shopping centre and plenty of high street stores, cinemas, children’s play areas, a castle and fantastic port!
