We do not recommend the villa for parties including children for safety reasons as the cursory or lack of fencing over terraces presents potential hazards to children. There are also no single beds or additional sofa bed facilities so the property is much more suited to visits by adult groups. The villa presents a particular attraction to guests who intend to explore the andalucian inland towns and countryside. Mediterranean beaches are only 30 minutes away but the villa is in a private edge of town location, not a beach resort.
The Andalucia / Malaga Province region
One of Europe's most popular holiday destinations, the area is considered to provide the perfect climate (1,400 hours sunshine on average a year) for year-round tourism. Easily reached from the UK, several budget airlines offer regular flights to Málaga. The region has a wide variety of landscapes from the 100kms of Mediterranean beaches to inland mountains and featuring famous historic towns with a wealth of historic and cultural interest.
Mijas (20mins) - most famous of the white pueblos of Andalucía, Mijas is sandwiched high on a hillside between views of a wide Mediterranean vista and a backdrop of the Sierra Mijas offering a great variety of walking trails. The town features narrow cobbled streets adorned with flower displays and many bars and restaurants. There are also a wide variety of mountain walks from just above the town.
Ronda (1hr) - perched high above a rocky gorge, Ronda is known for its extraordinarily tall bridge joining the old town to more recent developments and for its famous bullring. A walk around the older part of the town and a stop to eat Spanish tapas should not be missed. Between the villa at Coín and Ronda lies the Sierra de las Nieves natural park that is interlaced with walking trails.
Lake district and El Chorro Gorge (50mins) – where the Guadalhorce River has cut a stunning gorge through limestone mountains. The river was dammed in 1921 creating 3 impressive lakes. Makes an ideal day out for walking, climbing, mountain biking and picnicking.
Marbella (25mins) - Marbella is the Costa del Sol's premiere resort for shopping and nightlife and together with nearby Puerto Banus set around an exclusive marina provides a contrast to the more affordable attractions or the other nearest beachside tourist town of Fuengirola. Accessed along the coastal road there are a number of attractive beaches well removed from the larger towns for those preferring less busy surroundings.
Málaga (30mins) – this regional capital and commercial centre is often overlooked by visitors to the Costa del Sol. Málaga is a thriving port with a picturesque old town, cathedral, Moorish castle with Alcazaba beside attractive gardens, an impressive Picasso museum and excellent shopping.
Gibraltar(1h15mins), Granada featuring the Alhambra Palace and Sierra Nevada (2hrs), Cordoba (2hrs15mins) and Sevilla (2h30mins) are further afield, but possible to take in as day trips and well worth seeing.
The Coin area
A 30 minute drive from Málaga airport and the coast at Marbella, Coín dates back to Roman times but is strongly influenced by 500 years of Arabic occupation from the 10th Century AD.
Coín is ideal for anyone wanting a holiday experience in a true Spanish town away from the crowds of tourists and typical package holiday destinations, providing a wonderful base for exploring inland into the nearby Sierra de las Nieves natural park, the Sierra Mijas and other ranges, where there are many beautiful way-marked walks to follow. The town abounds with small bars and places to eat, both Spanish and other world cuisine, and the town stages many cultural events throughout the year.
The town has several charming squares and hosts many fiestas and othe cultural events throughout the year. New Year and the Three Kings fiesta are enthusiastically celebrated as well as many summer events.
There are excellent facilities in the town for shopping with much larger shopping centres in the nearby coastal towns.

Finca Palmeras is a very cozy place with everything you need for the casual/unstructured vacation experience. Renting a car is a good idea if you want to visit the coast or other attractions. The walk up the hill to the city center plaza is steep but well worth it and the Coin shops and pubs are all easily accessed on foot. Since summers are warm here it would be nice to have screens on the windows and doors to discourage the man-eating mosquitoes! We had an overall lovely experience in spite of these little monsters.

We visited Finca Palmeras in the first week of September and it was perfect. The villa itself was lovely, plenty of space, a great little secluded terrace with a pool to dip into when we needed to cool off and lovely gardens with lemon trees and lavender bushes. We drove down to the beaches of Marbella a couple of times, which took about 25 minutes along the most amazing roads with great views. But it was always lovely to come back to our own private little spot at the villa and just hide away from everyone!
Coin has some great bars and the square is great fun at night when all the locals meet there to eat, drink and just generally catch up. We had visted Finca Palmeras a couple of years ago in November when it rained the whole time, but even then it was lovely - especially with the woodburner. We'll definitely be back again.

I must say we had a fantastic time - did an all inclusive in Greece - and this beat that holiday hands down!
We had a routine of driving down to the beach in the morning and coming back at about 2 - to spend the day around the more private setting. The house and pool are very private - and is perfect in the afternoons for lying around and reading.
We went to the supermarket when we arrived and stocked up for the week (which was exceptionally cheap) - and had BBq's everynight around the pool. It was very chilled and relaxed. Coin definitly felt like a Spanish holiday - not touristy at all - with some lovely bars and resaurants - you really feel like you are in Spain - not some over done tourist package.
We loved it so much we are going back next year in September - flights already booked!
