Last minute villas

Often in life, the best decisions are made in the spur of the moment. The best nights out, meals and holidays occur when they aren’t planned months in advance but happen at the last minute when you are not expecting them. Renting villas in Spain last minute helps to take the pressure off holidays, particularly if you have a busy schedule or changing circumstances that mean booking far in advance just isn’t an option. NOVASOL offers villas and apartments in Spain all along the Mediterranean coast, available to rent whenever you are ready.

Villa holidays in Spain

Being such a popular destination, there are many different accommodation types to choose from when escaping to Spain. Self-catering villas and apartments are, in our opinion, the very best way to take advantage of all this country has to offer, from delicious food to attractions and activities. Making your own schedule on holiday and filling it with the things your family wants to do helps to keep everyone happy, whether it is visiting old churches for mum and dad or waterparks for this kids.

Marbella apartments

Located on the famous Costa del Sol, Marbella is perhaps the best known of all the coast’s resorts. Spanish apartments and villas in this region enjoy the hot weather of southern Spain, while having access to the delights of Marbella which include marvellous beaches and the historical old town. For food-loving families, there are always plenty of places to eat when renting Marbella apartments, either in the city itself or by the beach. On entering a restaurant, always cast your eye towards the specials menu to see what the catch of the day is. It will likely be one of the freshest and most delicious dishes available.

Costa del sol villas

Elsewhere on the Costa del Sol, there are plenty of fabulous places to stay or visit on last minute holidays. In Europe, the Costa del Sol is hard to top for beaches and seaside activities, with families enjoying a plethora of water parks from Spanish villas, including the fabulous Aquamijas Waterpark in Mijas. For families who like to see nature on self-catering holidays, there are many different zoos and nature parks along the coast. The best of these are the BioParc Zoo in Fuengirola and the Crocodile Park in Torremolinos, both offering glimpses of exotic animals that visitors might never have seen before.

Barcelona apartments

Apartments and villas in Barcelona give visitors the flexibility they need to dive into the vast offerings of one of Europe’s best cities. From holiday lettings, tick off the sights such as Las Rambas and the Camp Nou before heading to the city’s large beaches which are popular with locals and tourists alike. Barcelona is full of delightful restaurants and bars, but if you want to try your hand at cooking a meal or two when you are there, pick up some fresh ingredients from Boqueria market and get to work. This is a fun activity to try on a last minute romantic holiday, and will definitely impress your significant other.

Villas in Valencia

The region of Valencia, located in the middle of the Mediterranean coast of Spain, offers plenty of variety for last minute holidaymakers. In the centre of the region can be found the dynamic city of Valencia which has medieval riches to discover, as well as impressive modern attractions such as the futuristic L'Oceanogràfic aquarium. If you are looking for sunshine and beaches on last minute holidays, browse our Spanish villas on the Costa Blanca in the south of region. The resorts of Benidorm, Alicante and Torrevieja line this stretch of coast, which gets its name from the white sandy beaches that can be found in abundance.

Majorca villas

Floating in the Mediterranean, to the east of mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands offer families a slightly different experience to enjoy while self-catering. The largest of these islands, Majorca, has lots of diversity for last minute holidays, with idyllic fishing villages on the north and eastern coast, and vibrant party areas of Palma and Magaluf in the south-west. NOVASOL’s holiday lettings in the hilly centre of the island are often blessed with fantastic views over the countryside, best enjoyed from the swimming pool and terrace. On Majorca, you will find some of our most remote and relaxing villas in Spain, perfect for recharging the batteries after a stressful few months.

Spanish food and culture

One of the biggest benefits of self-catering in Spain is that it encourages you to get out and about and try different foods in local restaurants. Spain is famous, of course, for its paella, which is perhaps most delicious when filled with fresh seafood caught daily in the Mediterranean. They particularly love their prawns in Spain, and these will pop up in many dishes, often dressed in olive oil and garlic. To complement this feast for the senses, a nice bottle of Spanish red or white Rioja goes down a treat, and is just what you need on a quick getaway. Before returning home from villas in Spain, choose a couple of bottles of vino from the local wine shop so you have something to keep you going for the next couple of months.
