Cheap Accommodation in Malaga
Malaga apartments are available by the thousand, and they come in all different standards - from budget to luxury. Renting an apartment is a great way of having a reasonably priced base during your Malaga holiday. Here we look at some good spots.
The word for apartment in Spanish (el apartamento)
is so like the English that it is easy to remember and retrieve from your grey matter.
Many thousands of Europeans actually buy and own their own apartments in Malaga. Ownership of apartments has been very popular among the British, Germans and Scandinavians. A great deal of this has been fuelled by the explosion of cheap flights to Spain by the low cost carriers such as easyJet and Ryanair.
Once they start flying to a destination it becomes vastly more accessible to the average Northern European and encourages a huge influx of people - from holiday makers on a short stay to dual home owners, to the retired and semi-retired people spending many more months in the sun.
Many of tens of thousands of Britons are voting with their low cost carrier and setting up permanent domicile in Spain.
For those on a shorter sojourn in Spain here are some places to stay in Malaga.
