Property to rent Manilva long lets
Manilva has been a popular destination for Spaniards and knowledgeable tourists for several years. It is slowly becoming busier as more and more people find out about this delightful town. It is situated approximately halfway between Gibraltar and Marbella, which makes it an ideal base for visiting the surrounding attractions in this part of the Costa del Sol. Manilva dates back to Roman times and was abandoned by the Moors. The villagers in nearby Malaga, Ronda and Marbella offered peasant farmers from the north of Spain free land to inhabit the town again.
Main Tourist Attractions
Just outside of the town are the Hedionda Roman Baths. This attraction dates back to the 1st century and it is reputed that Julius Caesar himself bathed here to cure a skin complaint. El Ingenio Chico is a former sugar mill which was built in the 18th century and remains of the building and aqueduct are clearly visible. The church of Santa Ana is small and inconspicuous but shows visitors the typical style of parish building and adjoining cemetery that can be found in traditional Spain. Manilva has its own beach which is uncrowded and clean. Puerto de la Duquesa is nearby and has a lively marina. Visitors who enjoy walking, hiking and watersports will find several choices of these activities in Manilva.
Being a hidden treasure in terms of tourism, Manilva has small boutiques and local shops that cater mainly for the local population. There are several shops where you can buy clothing, jewellery and leather goods. Some handicrafts that are made in nearby villages can also be bought as great Spanish souvenirs at the shops in Manilva. Due to its location, the town is a perfect base for shopaholics who must visit the nearby commercial centres at Marbella and Puerto Banus.
Eating out and Nightlife
There is an abundance of cafés, bars and restaurants to be found in Manilva and the surrounding area. The town itself has many bars ranging from typically Spanish to modern sports lounges. Local Spanish cuisine including seafood, Tapas and Andalusian specialities can be found in the cafés and restaurants. International food such as British, Indian and French can also be found. The marina at nearby Puerto de la Duquesa is well-known for its sophisticated dining experience.
The nightlife in Manilva is very low key and of a typically traditional Spanish style. Spend the warm evenings soaking up the charm of the town before sitting down to some delicious food and wine in a café, bar or restaurant. Clubs and discos are only a short journey away in either Marbella or at the marina in Puerto de la Duquesa.
