Manilva, Costa del Sol, Spain
Manilva is a charming village which has a prime location and remains typically Spanish. Ideal for those who prefer a quieter setting.

Still very unspoilt and very pretty. Easy drive to Marbella and Gibraltar so a good base for a holiday.

Lovely marina with great choice of cafes, bars and restaurants. Promenade is lovely to walk along and clean beaches. Only 25 minutes from the airport in Gibraltar and if you walk across the border into La Linea, car hire is right in front of you.
