This two-storey Gibralfaro apartment places Malaga at your fingertips, making it ideal for both sun lovers and those who like to holiday in the city. Although the interior isn't the most stylish in our collection, it's all about the incredible view here, with several spots to relax on the terrace and take in the view. The upstairs bedroom even has a private balcony, perfect for newlyweds who want some privacy. The communal pool is also sure to be a crowd-pleaser. That said, with the nearest beach only 2km away, you might want to spend most of your time there.
