The Costa del Sol with its excellent climate and beaches is the perfect place to book a trip for HOLIDAY RENTALS IN SPAIN. Many people have discovered that you can reserve apartments and villas this summer directly from property owners to save precious holiday money. Check it out and you might be surprised by the selection and quality of housing that is available. The Costa del Sol is the southern coast of Spain and is one of the most popular destinations in Europe to book vacation rentals directly. The beautiful sandy beaches and good weather throughout the year keep vacationers returning to places such as Torremolinos, Malaga, Marbella and Estepona just to name a few.

Torremolinos is one of the largest of the Costa del Sol resorts and probably the best known. There are a lot of holiday houses available for rent there. The sunny weather is almost guaranteed; summer temperatures often reach 30 to 40 degrees Celsius, from 85 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. So this is the perfect place to book a trip to Spain if you're a sun worshipper. If you choose to self-catering holiday homes you'll find plenty of places to eat near the beach, which sells fried fish, snacks and drinks. At night there are plenty of nightclubs open until dawn, they are the Torremolinos favourite for young adults who are looking for some "fun in the sun."

Malaga is a cosmopolitan resort on the Costa del Sol and is a favourite spot for villas rentals for tourists from Britain. Besides all the usual amenities expected of a large resort like great beaches, lively night life and a good selection of places to eat, Malaga is also renowned for its selection of great golf courses distributed throughout the region. This makes it ideal to look for apartments to stay in for golf tours. Malaga is proud of its association with the famous artist Picasso and the city’s airport is named after him. He spent the first part of his life in the city before his family moved to Barcelona as a teenager. A museum in the city is dedicated to Picasso where you can see many works by the artist.

Marbella is another popular destination in the Costa del Sol and is a popular holiday destination for people looking for quality holidays. Marbella is a cosmopolitan, stylish town and keeps a typically Andalucian flavour. The area is protected from the nearby mountains to give a micro climate with an average annual temperature of about 18 degrees Celsius and it’s possible to spend ample time on a fantastic beach here even in the winter. The old town is an ideal place for a leisurely stroll or, if you want to do serious shopping, head for the marina area with a selection of designer shops.

Estepona is another beautiful Costa del Sol resort where you will find many bars and restaurants serving traditional Spanish dishes, but international cuisine or fast food like burgers or pizza are available too. After dinner, you can find many places to enjoy the vibrant night life on offer, including the Plaza de los Flores or one of the many other bars in the marina.

It’s little wonder that so many people choose to go on HOLIDAY RENTALS IN SPAIN in this region. A holiday home is often best for families with young children because there are fewer restrictions and the amenities that you're used to at home, including washing machines and television. Self-catering holiday homes allow you more flexibility; you have no one to serve you, but the opportunity to sample the local cuisine whenever you want and the availability of housing for large groups if you feel like a family reunion in the sun.
