Property in Costa del Sol/Mijas
Mijas and Mijas Costa are separate areas. Mijas Costa refers to an area of the coast, incorporating many of the coastal towns around Fuengirola and Mijas itself is a small village in the hills over looking Fuengirola.
It is perhaps the most popular village in the area, well-kept and beautiful if hardly typical of Andalusia. Some hundreds of foreigners live here. A very hilly village, all streets steeply up and down. With its little whitewashed houses perched on the hillside and narrow streets that are restricted to pedestrians and donkeys (who act as taxis). There are many small craft shops selling leather work, pottery and other traditional wares.
Mijas has the country's
only square bullring (it's also small) and some interesting churches & other
monuments giving insight to its past: Roman, Moorish and Spanish.
The journey along the old road between Mijas and Benalmadena, among
the pines and little chalets that mark the route, is like a continuous
balcony which overlooks the sea. During high season the village can
be crowded with tourists visiting from along the coast. Higher in
the town the streets turn into flights of steps and the higher you
climb the quieter it becomes and the cheaper the cafés, restaurants
and bars are.
You can eat out cheaply or go out for an exclusive upmarket meal. A half-hourly bus service runs between Mijas and Fuengirola and every hour between Mijas and Torremolinos.
There are many properties ranging from affordable apartments to villas, larger Spanish holiday homes and cottage style houses.
