The Andalucia region
The Costa Del Sol welcomes more than two million people a year who arrive at Malaga international airport and head to one of the many resorts located along this stretch of coastline.
With the Costa del Sol weather giving average annual temperatures of 18ºC and over 300 days of sunshine per year it isn't difficult to understand why it is one of Europe's top holiday destinations.
There are around 70 Costa del Sol golf courses on the "Costa del Golf" which can be played all year round as well as a whole range of other activities available such as sailing, scuba diving, horse riding, dolphin safaris, etc. The list is endless.
Away from the coast there are numerous excursions into the real Spain with the cities of Ronda, Seville, Cordoba and Granada all accessible for day tours. For the more adventurous you can also take a 15km trip across the Straits of Gibraltar to visit Tangier in Morocco.
One of the jewels of the Costa del Sol is the beautiful little village of Mijas, which nestles comfortably in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level; it is a superb choice for either holiday or full time living.
When you wander through the narrow cobbled streets of this Andalucian village, you can understand what has attracted foreigners to settle here over the years. Many artists and writers have made it their home, enjoying the benefits of an excellent all year round climate, without being part of the busier, more commercial coastal towns just 7 kilometres down the mountain side.
Mijas itself offers you:
Shopping with high quality jewellery, ceramic and leatherware in addition to excellent artisan and craft shops.
Excellent Restaurants – The restaurants in Mijas have deservedly built up an excellent reputation for their high quality food and friendly service.
Its Tourist Information Office situated above the Municipal Car Park in Plaza Virgen de la Peña, where information can be obtained on local events, concerts and nearby attractions.
The Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) with its beautiful marble patio with fountains, a popular choice for weddings. If you decide to marry in Mijas,we will be pleased to help you organise this happy event.
Constitution Square – a fabulous place to sit enjoying a meal or drink in one of the local restaurants and just watch the world pass by.
Shrine Virgen of the Rock: The Shrine holds the image of the patroness of Mijas, the Virgin of the Rock. Legend has it that the image of the Virgin was hidden during 5 centuries and was found in 1586 by the father of two shepherd boys who were led to the hiding place by a dove.
"El Carromato de Max": A museum of miniatures, one of the most important of its kind with works from over 50 countries.
The Casa Museo: Established in 1995 the Museum reproduces a traditional village house and informs you of local traditions.
Church Inmaculada Concepcion: Built in 1541 on the site of an ancient Moorish castle, one of the castle towers was used as a bell tower. A series of frescos of the Apostles date back to approximately 1632.
Fortress walls: La Ruta del Botanica The remnants of the fortress that used to protect the village with its pretty gardens and spectacular view point.
Malaga Wine museum – well worth a visit with its selection of wines from all over the world.
San Sebastian Street – this typical street is one of the most picturesque and photographed streets of the coast.
Mijas is quite simply beautiful! But don't take our word for it – come and see for yourself.

"Grubby & outdated"
Filthy shower drain attracting mosquitoes. Rusty sink tap & around sink. Loose electrical sockets. No hot water on arrival needed to plug it in & set it up in a wardrobe that was difficult to reach ag… More
Thank you for your review. We have taken note of all the things that are malfunctioning or missing to be bought brand new or replaced. We have had many guests staying in this apartment for several years and it is the first time we have had a bad review, which is rather disappointing as we did try our best to sort all the problems you had during your stay for you to enjoy your holiday like when you locked yourself out and we spent half the afternoon trying to open the door, or when there was no hot water and we immediately went to get it fixed, however we have advised the owner to change cleaner and he has installed a brand new air-con unit in the lounge as well as having all the electrical wiring renewed.

"Beautiful, peaceful complex"
Lovely holiday, everyone in the small complex was very friendly and the gardens and pool were beautifully kept.
Our apartment had every thing we needed and more ( if washing and cooking meals are important facilities are there).
The views from our terrace were spectacular and sitting watching the sunset with a glass of wine was a daily activity.
Mijas is lovely but not a destination for people who like nightclubs!
Hi, Thank you very much for your review! it will encourage others to choose Balcón de Mijas for their holiday. We hope to welcome you again soon :)
