Voted the 'prettiest village in Andalucía' Frigiliana is also important from an historical viewpoint. It was the scene of the final bloody defeat of the Moors in 1569. Today the village is a tangle of narrow cobbled streets lined by whitewashed houses, wrought-iron balconies with planters of brilliant red geraniums, and small plazas for your to explore during your stay in one of our self-catering villas and apartments in Spain. Tejeda and Almiraja form a lovely backdrop for the blue Mediterranean. The Almiraja, a designated natural park of 40,663ha dominates this large and rugged mountainous region. Then head to Malaga, the fifth largest city in Spain where you will find many cultural and culinary experiences to partake of. Malaga is Picasso’s birthplace, and the city’s Picasso museum is fully worth the visit.

Culture in Malaga

Although Malaga is known for its beaches, relaxed ambience and cosmopolitan facilities, there is a real history and culture to the area which should definitely not go unexplored whilst renting villas Costa del Sol. Not only are there typically Spanish things like tapas and flamenco, but Malaga has been strongly impacted by historical invasions and the various cultural influences to which it has been exposed in the course of time is evident. The Phoenicians, Romans and Moors have clearly left their mark on the area, and you can visit attractions like cathedrals, fortresses, galleries and museums during your stay at villas Costa del Sol. Throughout the year there are many festivals, and markets to visit. There are lots of exciting attractions to explore too, including all the offerings connected with the story of Pablo Picasso, a native son. See where he was born, and the museum dedicated to him and his art.

Cuisine and climate – holiday lettings Spain

The Costa del Sol is known for its incredibly sunny disposition – the average annual temperature being a staggering 19 degrees Celsius! So what could be better than relaxing in a shady local tapas bar sampling the Spanish cuisine with a selection of small tapas dishes? Or perhaps spend your days by the refreshing ocean, soaking up the sun and then dining on a feast of locally produced wine and freshly caught seafood. There are many cosy restaurants where you can enjoy Spanish delicacies such as paella, gambas, and camarones. You will also find lots of delicious Spanish wine to wash it all down. Eat lightly battered rings of calamari and dry-cured iberico ham or fried aubergine and roasted peppers. Or perhaps try to recreate local recipes back at your own villas or Marbella apartments.
