Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol region

Andaluicia and the Costa del Sol

The Costa de Sol can be divided into two sections: East and West, with Malaga city at its centre. The eastern Costa del Sol is much shorter, stretching from the provincial capital as far as Nerja, where it meets the Costa Tropical of Granada province.

The western Costa de Sol is the section of coast which curves round southwards towards Gibraltar, and includes all the major resorts such as Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmadena, plus of course, the ritzy celeb-magnet of Marbella. This section has a very international feel, with visitors and residents from all over the world.


West Costa del Sol

This section begins at Malaga city and stretches westward all the way to the border of Cdiz province. The area is very lively in terms of nightlife and beach clubs, and has a buzzing atmosphere all year round, with many expat residents choosing to make their home here.

San Luis de Sabinillas

San Luis de Sabinillas is the small coastal town is a village of Manilva in the western section of the Costa del Sol and between Marbella and Gibraltar.

Manilva. one of the most charming aspects of Manilva is that, despite its prime location on the coast, there is a refreshing lack of anonymous sky-scraper construction. Therefore, although tourists are just starting to discover the village (with good reason), it remains intrinsically Spanish. The majority of residents live in the commercial centre which covers just two square kilometers.

Main Sights in Manilva

Within the municipality of Manilva there are several communities. The white village of Manilva itself is located a few kilometers inland from the little fishing village on the coast known as San Luis de Sabinillas or just Sabinillas for short. To the west of Sabinillas there is a quiet yachting marina called Puerto Duquesa with its surrounding residential area and golf course. To the west again is another small fishing hamlet called Castillo de la Duquesa after the castle still found there. West along the coast there are various housing developments as far as Punta Chullera.

The municipality covers an area of 35 square kilometers. There are about 17,000 full time residents and a further 14,000 who reside here on a temporary basis or have holiday homes. The economy of Manilva is based on agriculture and fishing and, more recently, tourism.

The area's agriculture mainly consists of crops grown near the river bed and valleys. The river Manilva is the eastern boundary of the municipality. Grapes consist of a large proportion of the crop - used for the well-known locally produced sweet wines which keep badly and are best drunk when new.

History of Manilva

The town has a fascinating history which dates back to Roman times and still today there are some remarkably well-preserved Roman Sulphur baths and an Aqueduct. The Moors who favoured this location left and the town gradually faded away. In the 16th century the towns of Malaga, Marbella and Ronda were concerned that the coastline to the south of them was unprotected so they offered free land to poorer peasants in the north of Spain. There had to be a catch, indeed there was. Their area was still subject to raids from Moorish and Turkish pirates. To give the new arrivals a fighting chance of surviving a village was sited on a small hill 3km inland.

“great location - good transport links”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2016

the apartment has everything you need. It is next to the main bus route so good for Gib or marbella and all points in between. The agents are helpful and respond straight away to the slightest query. Kevin gave us lots of tips about where to visit. We liked Gib, Puerto Banus, Ronda, Duquesa and Caseres.

“good position, lovely town”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2015

We stayed for 5 weeks in Dec 2014 and Jan 2015 including Xmas and New Year. Our son came to visit whilst we were there and also brother and sister in law. Kevin and his agent Paul were very helpful. We liked the position of the apartment, there are supermarkets and bars etc very close by. The size of the lounge /dining area and kitchen was good and the balcony is south facing so sunny in the afternoon. It also has secure underground parking. It is only a 10 minute walk to the beachfront . There are lots of bars and restaurants and all kinds of shops in Sabinillas yet it still retains its Spanish feel. It is still a fishing town and lots of families live there. You can walk along the paseo to cosmopolitan Duquesa port with all kinds of restaurants and then on to lovely Castillio. The apartment is also convenient for driving along the A7 to visit elsewhere. Gibraltar is about 30 mins drive and worth visiting -remember passports. The hilltop town of Caseras in a national park is also well worth visiting if only for the fantastic views - but it is a scary dive up there! We had a lovely holiday there and the weather was kind to us but it was cold in the evenings and early morning. There is no heating so we had to buy a heater. English tv is very limited to mostly old re-runs as we were there for 5 weeks we missed English tv. But there is a DVD/CD player so bring some films! Noise travelled in the apartment and we could hear the people upstairs.
