Experience the Province of Málaga holiday homes

Like the Cubist creations of its most famous son, Malaga is a mind-boggling mismatch of Spanish treats. It packs in the much-visited beaches of Costa del Sol and the bohemian capital that bears its name. At one turn, you can be gazing at the magnificent Alcazaba; the next, sunning yourself while enjoying a pina colada. Mornings might be spent sipping coffees on the boat-bobbing marinas of Estepona, afternoons devoted to wandering the Pueblos Blancos of the olive-clad Sierra de Grazalema, nights given to rambunctious parties in Marbella's swish bars or sunset shows on the cliffs of Nerja. Province of Malaga holiday rentals await.

Things to do

Sightseeing near Province of Málaga holiday lettings

The Costa del Sol didn't earn its rep for family fun and wholesome holidaying overnight. Attractions worthy of all ages burst from its sparkling beaches and bold resorts. Check out Tivoli World, close to Malaga city, a hodgepodge of whirling carousels, Ferris wheels and make-believe Texan cowboy towns that's sure to keep the little ones active. Waterparks come thick and fast, too, from the gushing slides of Aqualand Torremolinos to the corkscrew chutes of Aquavelis.

Activities

Things to do near Province of Málaga holiday homes

Province of Malaga holiday rentals in Marbella and Torremolinos and the like promise something totally different to the pool-ready villas in the sierras behind. Karaoke sessions and dancing till sunup might be the norm down by the yacht-shrouded marinas, but hiking expeditions to encounter mountain goats and whitewashed villages are what's on the menu further afield. Art walks and history tours of Malaga city throw something else into the mix, while cooking lessons in Andalusian fare are bolstered by trips to local farmers' markets and fish bazaars.

Natural features

Sierras to sands in Province of Malaga

The Province of Malaga represents a big cut-out of Andalusia. It's home to the world-famous Costa del Sol – the Coast of the Sun. That lives up to its name, with shimmering beachfronts – like the celebrated ones at La Carihuela and San Pedro de Alcantara – running for miles down to the marinas of Marbella and Estepona. Behind that is where the rugged side of the province begins. Mountain ranges, like the sinewy Sierra Blanca, tower over the palm-shaded promenades, the deep Nerja Caves carve into the ridges, and the Sierra de Grazalema is host to olive groves, great gorges and dusty donkey farms.
