About this location

The Andalucia region

Campo Mijas is a short drive to both the sea at Fuengirola and the hills at Mijas. Fuengirola was previously a small fishing village, but now is a lively town with plenty of restuarants, shops and seven miles of lovely beaches, with a long promanade to stroll at night. Mijas is a beautiful white washed village with shops selling local produce, resturants and magnificent views of the countryside.

Fuengirola is a golfers paradise with so many courses to choose from, but it also has bowling and tennis clubs, plus horse riding, a racing track, aquapark and Zoo, and don't forget the famous Tuesday market when visitors come from miles around. The costa del sol is also steeped in history for those who don't want to spend there days around the pool. With over 300 days of sunshine there is plenty for everyone to do.


Campo Mijas is ideally situated to see some of Andalusia's major attractions, go south to the jetsetting of Marbella and Puerto Banus about half an hours drive, or in just over an hour you can be at Gibralter. North is the ancient town of Malaga about 20min drive or slightly further afield you can visit the alhambra in Granada(one and a half hours by car), the cosmopolitan city of Seville is two hours drive, and for the skiers/snowboarders you can make the slopes in two hours then at night drive back for dinner near the beach, best of both worlds.

There are many festivals during the year with Easter being the most famous and lasting over a week. At xmas the lights and decorations are wonderful so combine the sights with some xmas shopping.

"Very nice apartment in a nice location."

El Mirador was a very pleasant apartment to stay in. It has everything you need. It is very clean and comfortable.
We love the area as it can be quiet and relaxing but if you want fun and the bustle of Fuengirola, it is the place to go. A car is essential, although their is a small bus that stops close to apartment, it goes to Fuengirola.
The owner is very helpfull and easy to communicate with. We would defiantly stay there again.

"lovely apartment, thoughtful owner wonderful holiday"

Didn't realise when I booked the apartment in winter Spain closes on Sundays and we travelled late Saturday night. Luckily the owner did and had bought us food in for breakfast and lunch, even a pitza from Iceland much to the joy of my teens, was great to be able to arrive and have a cuppa!! The apartment was very spacious, well equiped and clean, everything you'd want on holiday. Unfortunatly we took some of the British weather with us and had 2 days of rain, the apartment is on the second floor which means the balcony has a roof and a window is at one end making it a real suntrap and warm so it was a lovely place to sit even in the rain. Hubby and I sat on here listened to music and read one of the many books provided whilst the teens watched tv in the lounge. We hired a car as we wanted to play golf in the morning and the courses were about 15 mins away but the teens walked down to one of the local bars(La Cafelito) for breakfast which they loved. We all walked to and from restaurant La Luna (on trip advisor website) with ease and to a restaurant called El Potro although did get a taxi back from there (only 5 euros). We also ate in a couple of times and I found the kitchen equiped with everything I needed to cook for 4. We used the car for shopping but there is a small supermarket about 5 min walk away and saw a couple of residents waiting for local bus, used the washing machine and there was a well thought out washing line under the apartment block so clothes dry whatever the weather.. The views from the balcony are fantasic, it really is a lovely place to sit and relax, the settee is really comfy. The beds were comfy and we were even provided with duvets in case it got cold (didn't but daughter loves to snuggle up so big tick from her.) The gardens are a lovely place to sit, when you can tear yourself away from balcony, sunbeds are provided with the apartment which was fantastic and the pool was really clean. Beach/pool towels are also included. The owner was very helpful, answered emails quickly, sent instructions of how to get there with keys and there is a cleaner on site if there are any problems. Would highly recomend this apartment to anyone and hope to book again for next year.

"Nice apartment with lovely views"

Th apartment was spacious and well cared for fitting five of us easily, everything we needed was there including beach towels. The gardens were a nice place to sit whilst kids were in the pool which was very clean and well maintained, nice to be provided with loungers. Small welcome pack was provided with water, juice, milk and buiscuits, tea and coffee already there, which is a nice touch. Views from the balcony were lovely and it was a nice place to sit at night as couch was quite comfy. Some nice resteraunts nearby although we hired car as we wanted to go to Granada and Gibralter. Would definatly go again.
