With so much of the focus on Marbella, its equally enticing neighbours are occasionally overlooked. One of the most appealing is Mijas, a large municipal area that straddles much of the coastal and hillside area between Marbella and Fuengirola. In so doing, Mijas Costa occupies some of the prettiest sections of the Costa del Sol shoreline, dotted with inviting coves, sandy beaches and lively villages such as La Cala de Mijas.
The interior part contains golf country estates such as La Cala Golf and Mijas Golf, both of which feature attractive apartments, townhouses and villas arranged around meandering golf courses. While there are also leafy residential areas, beautiful country villas and authentic Andalusian village houses to be found in and around the original white-mountain village of Mijas itself, renowned for its beauty and charm—this is an attraction in its own right.
Living in Mijas
Quite apart from the natural appeal of Mijas and its surrounding areas, one of the truly appealing things about spending holidays or living here permanently is the fact that it is so well positioned between Marbella on the one hand, and the area between Fuengirola, Málaga and its international airport on the other. With nature and authentic Andalusian culture and gastronomy in and near the village, beaches at your feet and open-flowing countryside and golf courses on your doorstep, Mijas is an attractive lifestyle option that has long since appealed to many.
What’s more, though they have risen in line with the growing interest in this area, property prices here are still below the Marbella level, ensuring that there are very attractive properties for sale in Mijas, be it a comfortable hillside apartment, a rustic villa near Mijas pueblo or a modern apartment with spectacular coastal and country views from its impressive poolside terrace deck.
