The Costa del Sol region
This part of Spain is protected from the northern climate by its 'Sierras' and so enjoys a fabulous climate all year round. Travel inland a little way and you have the traditional Spain, try a day out at El Chorro and swim in the freshwater lakes. The city of Malaga is a gem with its paved streets, the famous Picasso museum, the cathedral, its many restaurants, cafés and bars. Try Malaga's oldest tapas bar 'Logüeno' (Log-wen-o) or stroll along the Alameda Principal with its many flower stalls, the colours are overwhelming. Then you can walk up the paved Calle Larios and maybe take coffee and 'churros' in the Café Central in the Plaza de la Constitución. Head further east and you have Nerja with its famous caves.
At the heart of Benalmádena is the old white Andalusian village of Benalmadena Pueblo with its narrow streets with flowers growing everywhere, so much colour. The Plaza de España is at the heart of the Pueblo and has cafés, restaurants, craft and souvenir shops and the fountain of the young girl, the symbol of Benalmadena. This too is the real Spain as the locals go about their day-to-day business and some of the older village folk sit on a bench in the shade of the orange trees and just chat away to each other.
For the children there is Tivoli World just a bus ride away in Arroyo de la Miel and a little further on is the World famous Benalmadena Marina which has won worldwide acclaim for its architecture. The marina has more activities and restaurants thatn I can list here so put it on your itinerary.
Within walking distance of the villa is the Altos del Higueron shopping centre which has a Carrefour supermarket, a bank, an Italian restaurant which has superb pizzas to eat in or take away. Then there is the Taberna del Frasco bar, a dry cleaners, internet café, excellent Indian restaurant, hairdressers and the very stylish 'Punto Rojo' restaurat and bar. All the restaurants and bars have tables and chairs on the pavement so you can sit and sip your 'mojito' whilst watching the world go by.
For those who like to shop there is the excellent Corte Ingles at Mijas Costa and this has top names at surprising prices especially during the sales. Within this beautiful department store is the Hipercor supermarket which sells everything from air conditioners to zip fasteners (couldn't think of anything beginning with Z). Within Hipercor is its own bakery, delicatessen, superb fresh fish counter and Spanish takeaway food counter where they will prepare you a paella of your choice and they make a gift of the 'paellera' - paella cooking pan - to you: superb!
