Sayalonga is a beautiful white-washed village situated in the Axarquia region of southern Spain. This area is very popular with visitors since it is considered by many to have the best climate in Europe. Sayalonga boasts an average of 8 hours of sunshine every day and is the perfect spot for your next vacation with all types of lodgings available to rent from private owners, including Spanish fincas, villa rentals, and country homes. And since the closest beach is only 9 km away, you may opt to choose your accommodations from vacation rentals, condo rentals and apartment rentals available in the many seaside villages nearby.
The closest major city and airport are located in Malaga, just 41 km to the west. You'll want to rent a car to reach your accommodation in Sayalonga and since you'll have your own transportation, why not set out from your vacation rental for an afternoon drive along the 55 km scenic Route of Sun and Wine where you can sample local wines and tropical fruits, and enjoy the picturesque countryside? The half dozen villages along this route are all very pretty with an abundance of colourful flowering trees and baskets that provide a pleasant contrast to the immaculate white-wash of the various shops and villas.
With a population of just 1,500 people, Sayalonga is a quiet little village with an abundance of old world charm. There is a square at the entrance of town where local farmers come together once a week to market their produce. Just steps away from your villa rental, you can buy fresh mangoes, avocados, citrus fruits, almonds, olives and grapes. The town has plenty of narrow, twisting alleyways, a parish church, the only round cemetery in Spain and a fountain where the infamous El Cid is said to have stopped for a drink. Also close to your accommodations, you'll find shops and a few restaurants, as well as services such as a post office and bank. You can dine out on traditional Moorish and Mediterranean fare, or you can take advantage of the fully-equipped kitchen at your apartment rental or villa rental and prepare your own meals using nothing but fresh local ingredients. Sayalonga celebrates several summer fiestas that coincide with the grape harvest and include fireworks, bonfires, and plenty of feasting. With your Sayalonga vacation rental or villa, you're sure to be close to all the fun!
