Featured Costa del Sol holiday villas

There are several main holiday resorts that hug the shores of the Costa del Sol and the holiday rentals accommodation tends to be a good mix of beach villas and apartments to hillside hide aways with panoramic views of the coast. Self catering villas and apartment rentals are very popuar with families and are certainly great value. The accommodation closest to the beaches and the popular resorts do, however, get booked many months in advance so planning ahead is essential if you want the best locations.
