Beach Cottages

Spain's coastline is a beach lover’s delight; from white pristine stretches of sand to hidden coves glistening with pebbles, if you love the beach life you’re going to love Spain. One of the secrets to its success as a holiday destination lies in the sheer number and diversity of affordable seaside resorts that populate its sparkling costas, while the 'fiesta and siesta' loving culture also adds to its allure. One of the favourite costas for self-catering holidays is the Costa Blanca with its numerous coastal towns, many offering unspoilt beaches and a colourful culture and gastronomy which is still deliciously authentic. Other coastal towns like Denia, Javea and Moraira are cosmopolitan, elegant and enjoy a fabulous european ambience that appeals to all ages from kids to grandparents.

Another of the highly frequented costas is the Costa del Sol down on Spain’s southern shores, a place that delivers that winning combo of value for money along with pristine beaches and a vibrant social scene, especially resorts like Frigiliana, Nerja and the famous Puerto Banus. If you're looking for something a little more rustic, then you only need to head a little further west to the Costa de la Luz, the home of typical Andalucian coastal towns like Los Canos de Meca and Tarifa, which continue to allure nature lovers, surfers and those who just want to soak up the Atlantic beach life all year round.

Other well known Med destinations include the Costa de Almeria, the Costa Brava and the Costa Dorada. These are similarly great choices for child friendly family holidays as they have so much on offer in regards to activities, attractions and general tourist amenities. With a host of international airports and a top notch highway infrastructure, getting to and travelling around Spain is actually quite easy, as long as you remember to keep to the right hand side of the road. The self-catering beach apartments and villas in Spain listed below represent a small selection of the Spanish holiday rentals market, with literally thousands of holiday homes available to rent, pretty much covering the entire coastline.

The accommodation listed ranges from cheap apartments to pet and family friendly villas and of course the large group holiday villas in Spain with pools suitable for group accommodation sleeping 8 to 10 people. You’ll find beachfront rentals, luxury villas, cool beach houses and even romantic Spanish beach cottages with sea views for couples. Once you’ve found your ideal retreat simply book with the property manager or owner direct.
