Mijas is located in the Spanish province of Malaga
on the Costa del Sol. Mijas Pueblo is the whitewashed village standing high up the mountain with spectacular views
over the Mediterranean and rated as one of the prettiest villages in Spain
. Whilst Mijas Costa refers to the coastal resort down the mountain. Both playing host to fabulous accommodations, vacation rentals, condo rentals, villa rentals and apartment rentals.
The delightful Andalucian town of Mijas is the ideal location for a relaxing break
and offers great value for money. Nestling on the high ground in the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas Mountains, above the coastal resort of Fuengirola you can enjoy a tranquil setting as well as discover the beautiful surrounding area.
Mijas is a delightful maze of narrow cobbled streets and archways
with picture postcard accommodations, villa rentals, condo rentals, vacation rentals and apartment rentals with red tile roofs and balconies ablaze with brightly coloured geraniums.
At the entrance to the village you'll see the ancient spring which still provides natural mineral water
from a tap in the wall. A major attraction for visitors is the surviving tradition of donkey taxis which trek around the pueblo for the benefit of foreign sightseers.
Local arts and crafts thrive
here, notably handmade linen and wicker items. The pueblo is good place to stock your accommodation, villa rental, vacation rental or apartment rental as it is also noted for its delicious local bread, honey and almond cakes.
For out of season visitors, a wonderful local spectacle is the celebration of the feast of San Anton in January. The locals throw a "romeria" (open air party) at the holy hermitage of El Puerto, traipsing up the mountain in carriages and carts piled high with flowers and food. During this time villas and holiday lodging are booked up well in advance.
This entire area is a golfer's paradise
with year-round sun and with no less than 8 golf courses within easy reach. Just inland from Mijas Costa you'll find La Cala
North and South golf courses and the David Leadbetter Golf Academy.
