El Pilar is a stunning traditional style Spanish villa has been refurbished to an extremely high standard. It has stunning sea coastal views and views of the olive and mango groves strewn across the valley below. Set in a superb location this beautiful villa not only offers you privacy, but also has everything you need for a relaxing holiday in the sun. Enjoy the complimentary welcome pack and bask in the Spanish sun all day whilst the kids splash about in the pool. Come evening, fire up the barbie to a few glasses of sangria. Once dinner is taken care of why not relax in the hot tub and watch the sun set over the sea.

The nightlife of Velez Malaga and Torre Del Mar is only 10 - 15 minutes away giving you the best of both worlds. There are also many and varied activities and sights to explore in the region beginning with the beaches and flurry of the resort town of Torre Del Mar. At El Pilar you can have the best of both worlds with the stunning views and remoteness of a mountain villa, and a short drive to bustling beaches and shopping centres. El Pilar is ideal for those planning a holiday with friends or extended family.

So why not get the whole gang together on one big holiday where everyone can enjoy a relaxing sun filled holiday and warm summer nights around the BBQ.... make it a home away from home ....... Set in the mountains above Velez Malaga and Torre Del Mar is ideal for those who enjoy walking and hiking whereas golfers can enjoy a round at Bavaria Golf course, a short drive away.

The Costa del Sol region

This region enjoys around 330 days of sunshine a year with an average temperature of 22 degrees perfect for that summer holiday. The region has plenty to see and do with golfing, horse riding, shopping and water sports readily available. The spectacular Spanish countryside is well worth driving around for its vast olive groves, mango laden plantations and traditional white villages. With the city of Malaga and the many coastal resorts like Nerja and Torre Del Mar, you will find plenty to do from sunbathing on the beach, to shopping, restaurants and lively nightlife.

Velez Malaga

The beach town of Torre Del Mar is about 10-15 minutes drive away and has sandy beaches, a waterpark, plenty of shops, restaurants, tapas bars and clubs to keep you occupied. You can also hire cars, mopeds and bicycles and book tours around the area and to Seville, Cordoba, Granada etc. It has many beachside restaurants which serve fantastically fresh seafood. During the summer you will find Torre offers a busy nightlife with a night market and artisans and musicians lining the beachfront, along with summer beach bars and parties.

Torre del Mar has a lot of atmosphere and local flavour with numerous shops, restaurants and bars. A 500 metre seafront stretch, called El Copo, is a continual line of bars and discotheques which are open until 6.00h every morning in the summer and at weekends during the winter. Along an adjoining stretch of the seafront there is a summer night market open until 3.00h every morning. There are wide sandy beaches flanked by a long beachfront promenade with pretty views along the coast and of the hills and mountains behind dotted with white houses and villages. Two kilometres to the east there is a fishing port and beautiful marina at La Caleta de Velez.

Velez Malaga is about 8 minutes drive away and also has an array of shops, restaurants and tapas bars along with local street market stalls. Golfing is readily available. The town lies in the wide valley of the River Vélez from where its main resources are found. Fortaleza - built in the 13th century, the castle stands on top of a hill in the centre of Arrabal de San Sebastián, the oldest district of the town. The 16 metre high tower, built to guard the town, still stands in good repair as a symbol of the Moorish civilisation of Velez-Malaga.

Whatever your interest I'm sure you will find something for everyone in the area.

"Cortijo El Pilar had it all"

Cortijo El Pilar had it all. Fantastic pool and spa, magnificent views and many cosy places for relaxing, dining or enjoying a drink with stunning views. We could overlook the pool from most places, which were important to us, due to small children

we are so glad that our guests enjoyed the place as much as they did, they were impeccable guests and we pride ourselves on trying as hard as we can to make your holiday as relaxing as possible and we always appreciate their feedback, we have many return guests and they are all more than welcome back anytime! A great guest party is worth its weight in gold and we always try to reward those who return to us. Thank you for your review it means a lot. Regards from El Pilar.
