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
We enjoyed very much our vacation. Sunny and hot like we wanted. We like your place a lot. Very well located and it had amenities that we expected. We cooked a bit and slep very well with the air conditionned. The place was perfect for us. Thank you again!!
This property is very close to the beach and right in the middle of a busy street. However once you enter the complex it is very quiet.The kitchen had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. The only problem was there is no air conditioning in the second bedroom. As we were there when it was very hot this posed problems at night. We thought from the description of the property it had air conditioning in the bedroom but not even a fan was available. if you stayed when the weather was not so hot there would be no problem.
Good communication, owner answered all our questions promptly. Apartment nice and clean, with everything you could want for an enjoyable stay, nice south facing balcony, just a pity that the weather for the first 4 days was bad, would return.
The town house is very clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. We were amazed with the standards and quality of this property including free wifi. You couldn't ask for a better location no need for a taxi as everything you need is on the doorstep. When you step outside each way you are spoilt for choice of restaurants and bars which are on the beach front. The correspondence with the owners has been first class and nothing has been to much trouble for them. We can't wait to go back.
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!
Carmen 8 is a very comfortable and indeed pleasant holiday home which has exceeded all our expectations. Fantastic property in a great location. Easy access to local transport links, shops, restaurants etc.and only a minute walk from the beach. Certainly hope to return next year!
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 .
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!
