A traditional Andalucian ‘pueblo blanco’ where charming cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and hidden squares extend behind an ancient Moorish wall with a panorama to die for. On a good day in Mijas you’ll look out across the coastline below, all the way across to the coast of Africa. You’ll find many of the landmarks that draw people to southern Spanish towns; a bullring, pretty churches and a host of local fiestas. It’s the perfect place to settle, particularly if you are looking for life beyond the beaches. It’s just 30 kilometres to cultured Malaga and minutes from a network of nature paths to explore along the mountainous ‘red trail’. Mijas stands in relaxing contrast to the excitement of the resorts that are just a fifteen-minute drive away. You’ll find it a highly desirable location with great weather, an excellent community and easy access to the very best of the Costa del Sol.
