Holiday homes and rentals in Malaga
Just 15 years ago Malaga was barely on the tourist map, but following years which has seen the town centre fully pedestrianised, the harbour area redeveloped and the city transformed into a dynamic, cultural, cosmopolitan hub, it is now an internationally renowned and hugely popular tourist destination. Homes are plentiful all around the city, from the gorgeous Old Town, to the beaches of El Palo and Huelin, and the whitewashed, traditional Andalusian villages in the hills surrounding Malaga.Chic rentals for a city getaway
Most homes in Malaga are city accommodations, usually for two to four people. If you are travelling in a larger group, you may opt for home out of the city, where detached properties offer more room. Located in the hills that rise above Malaga, they offer sensational views over the nearby mountains and, of course, the sparkling Mediterranean sea.

The area and getting around
Malaga’s airport is Spain’s third busiest, with direct flights to almost every country in Europe and up to 30 flights a day to the UK alone. From there it is a short 15-minute drive into the city. Most visitors choose to stay in the compact Old Town, which is urban Spain at its very best, boasting cobbled streets, a mountainside Roman Amphitheatre, and the Moorish citadels of the Alcazaba and Gilfarbaro. The beaches stretch to the east and west of the centre, with the cleanest and most popular areas being El Palo and Pedregalejo on the east side.Rural Malaga in all its glory
The Malaga region is sprinkled liberally with pretty pueblos blancos, or white towns and villages. The best of these are to the north east of the city, in the simply stunning region of Axarquia. Comares is the highlight, known as the ‘Balcony of the Axarquía’ because of its privileged position perched 750 metres up on a mountain top.
