The glamorous coastal resorts of Andalucia have earned the region a worldwide reputation as a luxury holiday destination. Bustling locations like Marbella and Mijas remain a focal point for celebrity visits, in particular, and have the widest selection of impressive rental villas available.
In fact, more rural areas of Andalucia also offer luxury options. Properties with large scale rooms and grounds and flawless modern facilities can be found in most provinces. ´Luxury´ generally encompasses contemporary, white villas with open plan living spaces, but for those wanting to indulge in the more quintessential side of Andalucia, traditional Spanish cortijos (or farmhouses) offer outstanding alternatives of a more rustic nature.
With Michelin star restaurants, spas and a selection of water sports, and even sailing courses, coastal areas offer a great deal to the luxury traveller, but historic, inland locations offer exciting alternatives such as wine tourism or horseriding.
The properties on this page aim to cover the scope of ´luxury´ definitions, including contemporary villas and apartments, and more vintage options. All have pools, beautiful views, and a boutique feel to add a Spanish touch to any luxury visitors´ stay in Andalucia. Prices range from 150 to several thousand euros per night, and will vary depending on the season.
