On your doorstep!: Carihuela village also has a wide range of shops, with everything from designer fashions, shoes, bags, jewellery, expensive collectable china through to the inevitable beach shops and souvenirs. There are proper supermarkets - Mercadona and SuperSol, not those expensive small shops - 5 minutes walk from the house.
Carihuela is also the origin of the famous chiringuitos - beach cafe-bars - where you can sit at the bar and make new friends from around the world or simply carry on sunbathing and the staff will bring your drinks and food to you on the beach! They started in the 50s when the fishermen realised they could cook the days catch and sell it to the newly-arriving visitors. Youll still see the mornings fish being cooked on charcoal fires every lunchtime at almost every chiringuito.
La Carihuela: Unlike much of the Costa del Sol, La Carihuela has a very Spanish flavour as it is very popular with people coming from Málaga for long lunches. International visitors tend to be from the UK, Holland, Ireland, Sweden, France and Germany, so there are good restaurants catering for these nationalities, as well as the ever-present Chinese and Italian restaurants.
Fortunately La Carihuela missed out on the high-rise-horrors of the 70s tourist boom (thats on the other side of Torremolinos, or in Benalmadena) and is now a protected zone, even some of the original fishermens cottages have survived. This gives it a character all of its own, unusual on the Costa del Sol!
Carmen 8 is set in the heart of La Carihuela within a quiet courtyard

Thank you for the lovely appartment.
We have had a wonderful holiday. We love the appartment, the restaurants and the beach. The kids want to go back next year but we don't have any information about the flights and their school holidays yet. Do you have the price for a week in 2013 yet around 27 April?
