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

Hello Lesley,



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?



Kind regards,
Apr 2012

Carmen 8 is an excellent place to stay!

  • 5 out of 5
This was the first time we had been to Spain and we were not disappointed. Carmen 8 has all you need for the perfect holiday. It is clean, comfortable and well presented with shops and many restaurants right outside the main door.
My husband and I arranged for Kate (meet and great lady) to meet us at the airport, Kate took us to the apartment and gave us all the information we needed to know about the apartment and the local area.
Carmen 8 is just 50 metres from the beautiful sandy beach and within easy reach of Torremolinos and Benalmadena. In La Carihuela there are plenty of bars, excellent restaurants, shops and delicious cake shops to tempt you.
It was great to be able to go back to Carmen 8 and relax with a bottle of wine on the balcony after a hard days sunbathing on the beach.
We had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed our stay at Carmen 8 - I would definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that everything was just perfect for your first visit to Spain. We are very lucky to have Kate managing the property for us. She speaks 6 languages (one of which is fluent Spanish) so is always on hand if visitors need anything throughout their stay.
We stay at the house regularly ourselves so as to ensure that high standards are always maintained.
Thank you for taking the time to write your lovely review.

Absolutely loved our stay here. We have been to Carihuela on numerous occasions and love the area. This was the first time we have stayed in a town house and cannot fault it. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated and has everything you could possibly need,it has a fabulous terrace off the main bedroom which is a brilliant sun trap, a fully equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine and proper cooker not a two ring hob ! will definetly return , a real pleasant easy experience dealing with the owner thank you .

Outstanding

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived with high expectations after seeing the pictures and were not disappointed. We were met by Kate who showed us around and explained everything. The house was lovely and clean, the bedding and towels all spotless. Perfect position, surrounded by bars and restaurants but set in a courtyard so you do not get any noise. We were lucky to get 7 days of sun so were able to enjoy the beach and terrace which being south facing meant we were never in the shade! We have already booked for 2014! Thank you!

Superb in every way, can not praise highly enough

  • 5 out of 5
This location is ideal, very close to the beach and in the midst of the main pedestrian thoroughfare. Once through the gated entrance you are in a quiet oasis. Carmen 8 has been lovingly refurbished and is a home from home for comfort. There are no worries about uncomfortable holiday beds here! Everything has been well thought about and provided, for both the apartment and beach.
We were met, shown around and told how everything works, it is immaculately clean.

We enjoyed many walks along the wide promenade to both Benalmadena and Torremolimos. We would recommend taking a train journey, they are efficient and so very different to British trains.

We had many good restaurants to choose from for our evening meal, there are also lots of bars to tempt you to stop and enjoy and drink and tapas during the day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would recommend the apartment and location to families who want a beach on the doorstep and older people like ourselves who enjoy walking, a little sightseeing and 'world watching'.

Beautiful house in a lovely location.

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to Carmen 8 and we absolutely love it. We were met once again by Kerry who provided us with they keys and information on where the local supermarkets are and anything else we wanted to know. The house was spotlessly clean and is very well equipped.

You couldn't get any closer to the shops, beach and bars. The bars/restaurants cater for every needs. If you want a quick snack at lunch time or a fine dining experience in the evening the choice is amazing.

There is lots to do during the day, you can stroll along the beach, walk to the different towns or take trips out.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the house and the location. We are definitely going again next year.

I look forward to welcoming you back next year!

Famous throughout Spain as a major centre of Andalucian cuisine, this 'old' fishing village, which has been pedestrianised runs parallel to one of the best beaches on the Costa del Sol.

The property is situated just 50 metres away from 2km of long white sandy beaches, renowned for their cleanliness. There is no doubt about it, La Carihuela is a great place for a relaxing beach holiday or as a base for those wishing to explore the wealth of local activities including a variety of theme parks, golf courses, sporting activities and much more!
