Villas in Malaga
Two decades ago Malaga was a city which travellers flew in and out of, and not much else. But since the turn of the millennium, huge investments have been made in the city, with the city centre fully pedestrianised with no expense spared, the waterfront beautifully redeveloped, and the city revolutionized into a vibrant hub of art, culture and Spanish festive zest. Stay in a villa in the east side of Malaga, home to its most salubrious suburbs sandwiched between the Mediterranean Sea and the pint tree strewn hills rising up behind the city. Or why not rent a villa in the picturesque countryside to the north of the city, with great road connections to all corners of the province.Gorgeous villas for a city getaway
