Manilva is a municipality on the western side of the Malaga province. It is bordered by wonderful vineyards of Moscatel Grapes, which are mainly used for making sweet wine for which Manilva is famous for. Manilva's strategic position, close to the entrance to the Mediterranean, has resulted in a long history of settlement in the area going back to the Stone Age. In recent years traces of these early settlers has been found in caves in the Sierra Utrera, a ridge of limestone which runs behind the town. There is also a historically important Bronze Age hill fort which is currently the subject of a programme of excavations, as well as some remarkably well-preserved Roman sulphur baths. The beaches in the Manilva area are some of the best on the Costa del Sol, and remain fairly uncrowded during the summer months.

Costa del Sol

With a climate and quality of life that is amongst the best in Europe, this region at the southern tip of the continent remains a place where easy living is possible, yet it also offers a range of increasingly sophisticated services that add modern conveniences to a gentle pace of life. Still glamorous, the Costa del Sol has come of age, offering the kind of professional and support services that make it possible to run your business from here or commute to the rest of Europe.

From cosmopolitan Marbella, with its broad offer of cuisine, beach clubs, luxurious hotels and health spas, it is a short step into a land rich in culture and charm, where the pulse of the real Andalucia still beats in ancient cities like Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba. It is this diversity, coupled with contemporary conveniences and a unique setting that makes this such a desired corner of Europe.
