Yes it will! Which bit of the coast are you going to? Each town along the coast has its own attractions and depends on what you are looking for?
Fuengirola has a zoo, marina, market, good shopping, lots of bars and restaurants and a great paseo and beach.
Benalmadena has bars, a marina, Sealife Centre, Selwo Marina - with dolphins and so much more, Paloma Park with little rabbits and chickens running free and a beautiful lake and gardens, a cable car ride up to the top of the mountain with fabulous views, a Bhuddist Stupa, a butterfly centre - which is amazing, a ferry to Fuengirola, the Tivoli amusement park and lots of bars and restaurants.
If you give us a bit more info we will be able to give you more advice.
Your nearest town then would be La Cala which is a small town with a lovely beach and a good selection of bars, shops and restaurants. They also have a market on Wednesday and Saturdays. I think where you will be is up in the hills on the other side of the motorway.
Where it is situated you will definitely need a hire car as there is no public transport up there. Fuengirola is the nearest big town and you can also go up into the mountain to Mijas Pueblo which is a bit touristy but has donkey taxis and some amazing views so well worth a visit.Edited: 25 January 2012, 21:31
Thanks, i dont think this is the one then.
Looking for somewhere that we wouldnt need cars.
Depending on if you want to do a lot of travelling around you will need to look for somewhere with good public transport and near to the airport so I would suggest you look for something in the area between Torremolinos and Benalmadena. There are lots of things to do and they are both on the rail link to Malaga City and you can get buses along the coast to Fuengirola, La Cala, and Marbella.
Also you will most likely have to look at apartments as most villas are in the hills but there may be some on here who will be able to give you some ideas.
I would agree most villas of that size will be more 'out of the way' and require a car to get about.
