Los Molinos apartment, Mijas Pueblo, Costa del Sol
Los Molinos is a spacious, airy one bedroom apartment ideal for couples.
It benefits from a lovely position on a pretty pueblo (nearest translation = village) which is terraced into the mountainside high above the sweeping coastline of the Cost Del Sol: there are wonderful views everywhere.
This peaceful, attractive pueblo is terraced into the contours of the mountainside and is in keeping with the old Spanish style of narrow walkways and staircases.
Entering the pueblo from the main road is like discovering a different world. It is a select residential area, adorned with fountains and flowers complimenting the sandy coloured flagstones and terracotta tiled roofs. A swimming pool, shared only by owners and renters, is to be found two terrace levels above the apartment.

|Further details indoors|
The living room is a large L-shaped room furnished in traditional Spanish style with some genuine antiques.
One leg of the L has an attractive fireplace, two x two-seater couches, low occasional, tables with lamps, coffee table and several traditionally-designed Spanish dressers/cupboards. The other leg of the L is home to an antique dining table and four carved dining chairs.
The whole room is light and bright having three large sets of double glazed French windows leading out onto "Juliette-style” balconies. One faces south where the view ultimately leads towards Fuengirola and the sea and the other two overlook the delightful plaza and splashing fountain.
The amply sized bedroom also benefits from a set of French windows overlooking the plaza and a further window. The room is furnished with a double four poster bed, with drapes, bedside tables and lamps, a full length mirror and a dressing table, with a further lamp. One whole wall is devoted to fitted wardrobes.
There is a small safe inside the wardrobe.
The kitchen is off the living room, open plan. It is well-equipped and includes full oven and four ringed ceramic hob, fridge with good freezer compartment, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and a plentiful supply of cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils. There is also a washing machine, tumle dryer and ironing facilities.
Finally, the spacious bathroom is well fitted with bath, over-bath shower, washbasin, toilet and bidet. A plentiful supply of towels is kept in a big cupboard.
There are well stocked bookshelves, games, beach towels and beach bag, picnic ware, a silver sun screen for your hire car and more. All equipment not locked away is for your use and enjoyment and you will find two modern, lightweight deckchairs to take outside and relax in the plaza.
|Further details outdoors|
Right outside is a pretty plaza (square) with a fountain and flower pots. There are two wrought iron tables with chairs for your use and we also have two lightweight deckchairs to carry out for futher comfort.
Two levels up from the apartment is the shared pool and sun-deck area. There are loungers and sun-brollies for your use.
At the end of the pueblo, close to our apartment, you'll find a small car park. The spaces are not dedicated as such to the pueblo but it is usually possible to get a spot here and is very convenient indeed.
The apartment is thoroughly cleaned before and after guests; we can arrange for a "mid-let" clean for an extra charge, though most guests prefer to do basic tidying and cleaning themselves (and avoid the usual annoyance of being bothered by cleaners!).
A deposit of £100 is required to secure a booking at Los Molinos. Receipt of the deposit constitutes a contract for the rental of Los Molinos and is non-returnable. The balance for the remainder becomes due eight weeks before departure to Los Molinos. The price, the number of named occupants, the period and the precise dates of rental have been agreed between the renters and the owners of Los Molinos and will be fixed.
The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun) enjoys around 320 days of sun per year. The temperatures can sometimes reach 30 degrees celsius even in November and February! More commonly these times of year are temperate with gentle sunshine and maybe a cool breeze in the early spring. By May, warm days and evening are more guaranteed and of course the summers are reliably sunny and warm alomost every day, right through until November.
Fuengirola is a short bus or car ride downhill: East from here is Benalmadena and Torremolinos and West, Marbella and Puerto Banus. This long stretch of coastline offers a huge variety of beaches and entertainment from aqua parks to theatres, from quaint Spanish “ventas” to five star restaurants. Venturing further afield, it is possible to visit Ronda, Gibraltar and Granada as a day trip. Seville is a little further and even North Africa is accessible (one of the many small tourist offices will help you arrange this).
Nestling half way up a three thousand foot mountain, beautiful Mijas is surrounded by spectacular scenery: the centre offers a choice of stunning viewpoints where you can watch the world go by whilst enjoying a flavoursome Spanish coffee or a refreshing sangria.
A wander round the narrow streets will lead you to the bullring, set on a lofty plateau, the site of an ancient Arab fortress, now exquisitely landscaped to entice visitors onto a trail of panoramic vistas. Make a pilgrimage to the historical healing shrine of the Lady de la Pena, where visitors have flocked for four hundred years, or climb the hill behind the two shrines, oases, high above the village.
After the excitement of a busy day sightseeing, shopping or soaking up the sun at the beach, returning to Mijas and feeling its dignity and tranquillity will almost certainly be the part of your holiday that you will cherish.

"Extremely Homely and Cosy"
We have stayed in many villas and apartments, however this seemed to have a more homely feel. It felt more like Cath and Ian's second home. We arrived on easter monday, the weather during the day… More
Hello again and thanks for this very good review filled with practical information, so useful for future guests. It's lovely to hear how well you enjoyed your stay and I'd like to say that you'd be very welcome to visit us again whenever you're ready.
I wish we had a bigger balcony too - the 5 Juliette balconies we have look so pretty don't they?
We have sought permission to extend the main balcony several times and sadly and frustratingly have been turned down.... perhaps some time in the future ....
The little plaza just below is a lovely place to sit, isn't it? We've been known to take the Scrabble down to play in the sunshine or to relax and read a book in our comfy deckchairs.... that is if the soft sound of the fountain doesn't lull us off to sleep!
Now I'm making myself home-sick! Anyway, thanks again and do hurry back!

"Off Street Gem"
We recently stayed in Los Molinos and really enjoyed our experience. The apt was compact and very well maintained. Washing machine and tumble dryer were an added bonus as was the pull along shopping… More
Wow! Just found out that it was excessively hot and humid when you had your holiday at Los Molinos. Computer records say it was over 40C by 9am! I have not experienced that much heat so I'm glad you survived and still managed to enjoy! Brave people!
Hello there you two,
Thanks for this very descriptive review, I'm sure it will be very helpful and informative for future guests.
Glad to hear you had such an enjoyable stay and of course you're very welcome to come back ..... you know where to find us when you're ready.
We're off to Los Molinos ourselves next week - only for a short break but I'm really looking forward to it .... a bit of R + R, good food, Spanish wine and sunshine ...... lovely.
Thanks again, cheerio, Cath.

"Comfort and sun"
Los molinos is a lovely apartment set in an idyllic part of Spain. All requirements were taken care of from booking onwards. Would absolutely recommend it.… More

If you'd like to re-visit sometime, you know where to find us and we'd be happy to have you stay again.

"An absolute gem!"
We stayed for a week in April of this year and Los Molinos lived up to its billing here on Trip Advisor. It was our first time actually staying in Mijas Pueblo although we did visit the village in 200… More
What an absolutely super review! Thanks very much indeed!
I don't think anyone has ever commented on the bus service or ease of getting to Fuengirola and the coast so that will be really helpful to future travellers who are hoping to get around without car hire.
Just reading about it all in your review has me really excited; we've just booked a few days in August for ourselves and I can't wait to get back.
Please contact me any time you feel the same - you'll be very welcome returners!

"Los Molinos Holiday"
This was our second stay at Los Molinos and we found it just as enjoyable as the first. The accommodation is clean, very well appointed with Caths usual attention to detail. The apartment's posit… More
Hi there you two,
Thanks for such a good review.
Those nominally off-season times can be wonderfully warm and pleasant - we've experienced 30 degrees C in November and we even had around 28 one end Feb/Mar but that's more unusual.
I know you have other plans for this year but whenever you're ready to re-visit Los Molinos, I'm sure we'll find a space for you.

Hi Jim and Liz,
Thanks very much for this nice review.
Glad you were comfortable at Los Molinos, Spain gets a winter too of course, and we have tried to ensure the comfort of winter visitors as well as those who choose more reliable times of year.
Let us know if you'd like to re-visit, we'd be very happy to have you back.

Great well located apartment. Perfect for strolls into the beautiful village of Mijas. Good communication throughout the whole rental process. Would recommend.… More
I was so sorry to hear that you got caught in September 2012's unique rain storms. I was grateful to you for letting me know that Los Molinos stayed snug and dry - poor citizens of Malaga by contrast, washed out of their homes. The benefit of Mijas is that it's atop a mountain, and in addition, Los Molinos is high + dry within our own pueblo.
It was very sensible of you to make use of Picasso Museum in Malaga - made an unusual holiday perhaps but a very interesting and cultural one and at least you got sun for your first 3 days.
Thanks for your compact review, hopefully you'll come back sometime and be luckier with the weather.
