“We had a wonderful stay at Estelle & Edouard´s house. The house is beautiful, everything is nice & neat. The communication with both of them was super good; they were always willing to solve our doubts and interested in how we were doing. They left a booklet with nice tips & suggestions about plans to do in the city, specially for us that were travelling with kids (12 & 10). All the rooms were very comfortable and clean; our daughter was excited to have a double bed and a private bathroom just for her!!! Malaga is a great city, and the house´s location is strategic to go and visit nearby towns. We strongly recommend swapping with Estelle & Edouard. Merci beaucoup pour tout:) Felix & Paloma.”
“We felt very comfortable and at home in Estelle's home. The house is very modern and clean and has everything you could wish for. It has a nice garden with fresh greens and fruits, lovely pool and it is a great place to dine out or if you feel like relaxing in the sun or in the shade. A short drive down the hill you will find Malaga City with a large selection of shops and restaurants and the famous Malagueta beach. By car, it is easy to reach the coastal sun towns and there are many fantastic places nearby. Communication with Estelle was simple and friendly, thanks for two fantastic weeks in your fabulous home!”
“Estelle was very easy and pleasant to communicate with. I would be glad to have her and family and friends again.”
Where is it?
Our home is located in the quiet and preserved area of the Gibralfaro, at a 20min walk from the beach and 15min walk from the historical center.
- Where to find real good bread in Málaga (and yes this is crucial)? Pistacho & Azafrán (tea and spice shop Calle Victoria), 25 degrés (French bakery, Calle Camas) and if in a rush, Aldi's bread is ok.
- What to do with your kids?? Contact us for more details, we'll give you tips depending on their age - but if they are into playgrounds (and you are into having a drink and relaxing) go to Casaamigos (historical center) or La Caleta Playa (on the beach), both of their terraces give right onto a playground.
- No kids?? Lucky you! Depending on what kind of music you like we'll tell you where to go to dance until dawn... Velvet, Tennessee Live Club, Liceo, ZZpub...
The city of Málaga:
Málaga has evolved a lot over the past 15 years, the whole historical center is now pedestrian and has been entirely renovated while maintaining the original architecture as much as possible.
There are remains of the Phoenician foundations of the city to be seen on the Plaza de la Alcazaba and of course, the Alcazaba itself, the old Arabic palace, is worth seeing too.
The old industrial harbour has been turned into a yachting harbour with shops and restaurants.
There are a lot of museums, bars, restaurants in the historical center and we can suggest our favourite spots.
The house is both at walking distance from the historical center and the beach.
There are a lot of kids playgrounds right on the beach, chiringuitos (beach restaurants), ice-creams kiosks.
The surroundings of Málaga:
There are many things to be seen at less than a 2 hours drive around the city:
For nature lovers, Málaga is very close to the mountains, you are 1h30min away from the Sierra Nevada and the Alpujarras which is a lovely place in the Summer time. We especially recommend visiting the villages of Capileira, Campaneira and Bubión.
You are just 1h30min from Granada and the amazing Arabic palace the Alhambra (tickets to be booked online on the official website at least 2 months in advance: https://tickets.alhambra-patronato.es), 2h15 from Sevilla which is the capital of Andalusia and culturally very rich (monuments, architecture, typical restaurants, flamenco shows...).
Along the coast you can also explore the cities of Nerja in the East and Marbella in the West.
Up North, Ronda is also really worth a detour.
Also, a special note if you like to Golf: the Costa Del Sol is full of golf courses!
