Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Mijas, Spain your home away from home

The village of Mijas or Mijas Pueblo is known as the ‘white village of Andalucía’, and resides 400m up on a steep hill on the Mijas Costa. The cobbled streets and stunning setting have made Mijas holidays a favourite and many foreign settlers, especially artists and writers have never left after taking accommodation in Mijas. It is a quaint, quiet town just 7km from the commercial coastal towns of the coast. The unmistakable Andalucian atmosphere in Mijas is tangible, with a passion for festivals and a laid back, slow pace of life making it impossible not to relax in a Mijas villa. Despite being a world away from the bustle of the coastal resorts, a self catering holiday rental in Mijas is only a few kilometres away from the beaches of the Costa del Sol.

Things to do on holiday in Mijas, Spain

The influx of artists and craftsmen has meant that many boutiques have sprung up selling unique and beautiful crafts and pictures. The best way to explore the town is in one of the local donkey taxis, which are not very expensive but are both comfortable and relaxing! Sitting in a street bar on the Plaza de la Paz is an idyllic way to spend an hour, watching the world going by. The Santuario de la Virgen de la Pena is a magnificent shrine carved into the rock. The best views from Mijas can be found from the park at the top of the hill or either of the stunningly beautiful churches of Santa Ana or San Sebastian. San Sebastian Street is thought to be the most photographed street in Spain.

Once you have walked around the village, a great place to stop and admire the view is the Muralla Gardens. From this vantage point, you can see stunning views all along the coast, whilst sitting in the shade of the flowers and trees which are in bloom all year round.

Information on the history and culture of this beautiful village can be investigated from the Folk Museum and the frequent displays in the Town Hall. Taking a Mijas villa over Easter weekend will be certain to entertain. Mijas is the host of the largest Easter celebration in Andalucía.

There is plenty of entertainment to keep you occupied when staying in a Mijas holiday villa. The Mijas hippodrome is host to a range of racing, and the Parque Acuatico Mijas water park is open from May until October. Mijas also has two golf courses to entertain those on golfing holidays. Los Olivos and Los Lagos golf courses are both open to the public. Fuengirola zoo, Tivoli world and the Marbella casino are all within striking distance of a self catering holiday rental in Mijas too, making it an ideal base to entertain everyone on a family holiday.

Well located apartment, flat walk into La Cala centre, close to the beach and shops.

4 of 5
Well located, roomy apartment. My husband and I stayed in this first floor apartment for 2 weeks in Feb 2017 Clean first floor apartment, all facilites you need for a holiday. Large terrace provides nice view overlooking pool with full sun until midday. Flat walk to all local facilities and next to pedestrian bridge for easy access to La Cala market and Lidl. Quiet locality with very little traffic noise. TV and wifi worked well.

Fantastic apartment, a perfect holiday!

5 of 5
December 20th 2016 - January 30th 2017 Having visited Fuengirola and Benalmadena in the past, which we were not keen on, my husband and I were not sure what Calahonda would be like for our six week stay. We needn't have worried! As we weren't hiring a car we were advised about using the train and the bus from the airport, which we did, and had an enjoyable and stress free journey to the apartment, which was also cost effective. When we arrived at the complex we found it to be in a gorgeous aspect, right next to the sea with a boardwalk just outside. The gardens and lawn were well tended and the areas around the pools were spotless. The apartment was fantastic! It has everything you could possibly need for a perfect holiday. The balcony was large and gave views of Gibraltar and the African Coast on a fine clear day, of which there were many. The TV had all English channels, sky movies and sport channels, providing great entertainment in the evening. The wifi connection was marvellous. As it got cool in the evenings, being winter, we used the heating system which was easy to use. The area of Calahonda was perfect for us. There were three supermarkets within easy walking distance, Lidl, Super Sol and Mercodona, and the fact the apartment has a shopping trolley we could use, made shopping a pleasure not a chore. The range of fish in particular was astonishing. The vegetables and fruit were extremely fresh and the meat fantastic. Whichever supermarket you choose it will be a ten minute walk from the complex. Close by is Luna Beach, where the food is good and the setting wonderful and it can be accessed by the boardwalk. Behind the restaurant, you can take the path up the hill which goes through a wood, and leads to the Marina at Cabopino. You may find this easier than walking across the sandy beach. La Cala de Mijas is a beautiful village where you can sit with a coffee and people watch or walk through the streets and look in the many small shops. You can catch the bus there or walk along the boardwalk to it. It is about 6.5 kilometres. The buses are in fact great. We used them to go to Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona. At this time of year not all the restaurants were open and it is obviously much quieter than in the summer, but we enjoyed it very much. It was a very relaxing holiday and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Wayne was extremely helpful before we went, providing us with the train timetable and local information.
