Manilva

Manilva is a quaint village and is seated in a magnificent location. With a backdrop of the Sierra Bermeja Mountains, Manilva is nestled among vineyards and enjoys views across vast expanses of agricultural land to the coast and Mediterranean Sea.

Manilva is divided into 3 distinct zones of Manilva village, San Luis de Sabinillas and Puerto de la Duquesa. Manilvas´ history date back to Roman times and the village is blessed with a 17th Century Church of Santa Ana and the 18th Century Duquesa castle. Manilva, although now becoming more involved in tourism, is still very much a Spanish community whose economy is primarily based on fishing and agriculture.

Surrounded by vineyards, Manilva boasts several wines that are unique to the area which form the main crop of its agricultural trade and add to the beauty of the area.

Although Manilva maintains a sleepy mañana attitude synonymous with Spain there are numerous recreational activities that can be enjoyed in this spectacular location. The Roman sulphur baths are remarkably well preserved and provide several health benefits to its users. The Sierra Bermeja Mountains and surrounding countryside are the perfect setting for walking, mountain biking, cycling and motor cross (where permitted).

The area has several modern facilities and attractions including leisure clubs and Golf courses and the miles of undeveloped coastline are the perfect setting for fishing, swimming and water sports.

Manilvas tree lined main street is kept in immaculate condition. Each side street appears to be the pride of its residents who tend to them. This village is a jewel of the Spanish traditional way of life yet only minutes from the bustle of the coast and its modern marinas and Golf courses.
