The Andalucia / Malaga Province region
The Costa del Sol stretches along just over 150 kilometres of Málaga province and is one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations. The area's mild climate is the root attraction that makes it possible to enjoy the beaches and a wide variety of outdoor activities year round. There are endless golf courses, beautiful beaches, towns and attractions which make the Costa such a wonderful place to live and to holiday. Popular towns include Marbella, and Mijas, with Ronda, Cordoba, Seville and Gibraltar within a few hours drive.
The Alhaurin El Grande area
Alhaurin el Grande is a town located in the province of Malaga, 30 Kms. from the capital city, and at 239 meters above the sea level. It is one of the most picturesque towns in the Guadalhorce river valley and it is situated between the river Fahala and the stream of Blas González. The Arabs named it Alhaurin, which some historians translate as "the valley", from the Arab root "Al-Haur", due to its situation upon the valley of the Fahala river, while other historians consider the name originating from the Arab word "Alhauerin" which means "Almighty God". The town has excellent shops, restaurants, bars and other amenities that you may require on holiday. There are many local recreations - see Activities below. The coast is much closer than you may think, with fast new roads to Fuengirola and Marbella, and Mijas just 20 minutes away along a winding road through the mountain. The rolling hills and wide open spaces give a feeling of space from all around the town. The nearest towns are Coin and Alhaurin de la Torre. With Andalucia's excellent road network, Alhaurin is within easy reach of Malaga, Granada, Sevilla, Ronda and the many picturesque hillside towns and villages in the region. The Southeast of the municipal boundary is mountainous and the rest consists of plains. It has a very mild climate with light winds that blow predominately from the North and West.
