Vacation rentals in Malaga
Just 15 years ago Malaga was barely on the tourist map, but following years which has seen the town centre fully pedestrianised, the harbour area redeveloped and the city transformed into a dynamic, cultural, cosmopolitan hub, it is now an internationally renowned and hugely popular tourist destination. Rentals are plentiful all around the city, from the gorgeous Old Town, to the beaches of El Palo and Huelin, and the whitewashed, traditional Andalusian villages in the hills surrounding Malaga.Chic rentals for a city getaway
Most rentals in Malaga are city accommodations, usually for two to four people. If you are travelling in a larger group, you may opt for rental out of the city, where detached properties offer more room. Located in the hills that rise above Malaga, they offer sensational views over the nearby mountains and, of course, the sparkling Mediterranean sea.

The beaches stretch to the east and west of the centre, with the cleanest and most popular areas being El Palo and Pedregalejo on the east side.Rural Malaga in all its glory
