Mijas is the closest village and is within a few minute drive or can be reached via a beautiful walk (beautiful but undulating !). Mijas is an amazing traditional whitewashed Spanish village which has managed to retain much of its "white village" charm, with cobbled, narrow winding streets, and breathtaking views.
The village was founded in prehistoric times and has had Greek, Roman and Moorish occupation followed up by many changes in more recent history. The ͚modern͛ village was completed in the early 18th century and covers the ruins of a Moorish castle and tours of the village are available by donkey taxi and tuk–tuk͛s.
Valtocado is just a short drive away from its nearest beaches at Fuengirola and Cala de Mijas and its miles of golden sands. All the major resorts of the Costa de Sol are easily accessible from the excellent motorway access and range from renowned hotspots such as Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Marbella to small, pine fringed beaches and pretty harbours.
Head west and within a few miles you will be driving through extensive pine forests and olive, almond and orange groves and climbing into nearby mountain ranges. Spectacular mountain locations such as Ronda, El Chorro and the Caminito del Ray walk are all within easy travelling distance and Gibraltar and a fast ferry services to Morocco are around a 75 - 90 minutes drive away.
