Los Molinos Mijas. Update - September 2017 Happily, we have now concluded the registration process - anyone who has been watching this space can now feel confident about booking with us. Los Molinos is a spacious, airy one bedroom apartment ideal for couples. It benefits from a lovely position on a peaceful, pretty pueblo (nearest translation = village) which is terraced into the mountainside high above the sweeping coastline of the Cost Del Sol: there are wonderful views everywhere. Entering the pueblo from the main road is like discovering a different world. In keeping with the old Spanish style of narrow walkways and staircases, it is a select residential area, adorned with fountains and flowers complimenting the sandy coloured flagstones and terracotta tiled roofs.

Update - September 2017 Happily, we have now concluded the registration process - anyone who has been watching this space can now feel confident about booking with us. Los Molinos is a spacious, airy one bedroom apartment ideal for couples. It benefits from a lovely position on a peaceful, pretty pueblo (nearest translation = village) which is terraced into the mountainside high above the sweeping coastline of the Cost Del Sol: there are wonderful views everywhere. Entering the pueblo from the main road is like discovering a different world. In keeping with the old Spanish style of narrow walkways and staircases, it is a select residential area, adorned with fountains and flowers complimenting the sandy coloured flagstones and terracotta tiled roofs. A swimming pool, shared only by owners and renters, is to be found above the apartment and there is a sun-trap 'patio' area just outside. The living room is a large L-shaped room furnished in traditional Spanish style with some genuine antiques. It is well furnished with two x two-seater sofas, low occasional, tables with lamps, flat screen, multi-channel TV, coffee table and several traditionally-designed Spanish dressers/cupboards. The dining table is antique and four attractively carved dining chairs complete the set. For year round temperature control, we have an attractive fireplace (with a smart, easy-to-use electric stove), an electric radiator and an air conditioning/heating unit. The whole room is light, bright and breezy, having three large sets of double glazed French windows leading out onto two 'Juliette-style' balconies and one larger balcony, furnished with comfy chairs and a coffee table. One faces south where the view ultimately leads towards Fuengirola and the sea and the other two overlook the delightful plaza with a pretty little fountain. The amply sized bedroom also benefits from a set of French windows overlooking the plaza and a further window. The room is furnished with a double four poster bed, with drapes, bedside tables and lamps, a full length mirror and a dressing table with a further lamp. One whole wall is devoted to fitted wardrobes. There is an air conditioning/heating unit and a small safe inside the wardrobe. The open plan kitchen is off the living room. It is well-equipped and includes full oven and four ringed hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and a plentiful supply of cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils. There is also a washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing facilities. Finally, the spacious bathroom is fitted with bath, over-bath shower, washbasin, toilet and bidet. A plentiful supply of towels is kept in a big cupboard. Equipment: There’s a wide range of books, games, beach towels and beach bag, picnic ware, a silver sun screen for your hire car and more. All equipment not locked away is for your use and enjoyment and you will find two modern, lightweight deckchairs to take outside to relax in the plaza. Mijas: Nestling half way up a three thousand foot mountain, beautiful Mijas is surrounded by spectacular scenery: the centre offers a choice of stunning viewpoints where you can watch the world go by whilst enjoying a flavoursome Spanish coffee or a refreshing sangria. A wander round the narrow streets will lead you to the bullring, set on a lofty plateau, the site of an ancient Arab fortress, now exquisitely landscaped to entice visitors onto a trail of panoramic vistas. Make a pilgrimage to the historical healing shrine of the Lady de la Pena, where visitors have flocked for four hundred years, or climb the hill behind the two shrines, oases, high above the village. Fuengirola is a short bus or car ride downhill: East from here is Benalmadena and Torremolinos and West, Marbella and Puerto Banus. This long stretch of coastline offers a huge variety of beaches and entertainment from aqua parks to theatres, from quaint Spanish ventas to five star restaurants. Venturing further afield, it is possible to visit Ronda, Gibraltar and Granada as a day trip. Seville is a little further and even North Africa is accessible (one of the many small tourist offices will help you arrange this).After the excitement of a busy day sightseeing, shopping or soaking up the sun at the beach, returning to Mijas and feeling its dignity and tranquility will almost certainly be the part of your holiday that you will cherish.

About the neighbourhood
The well known village of Mijas Pueblo is situated on a mountain plateau about 6 miles inland from the coastal town of Fuengirola. Los Molinos is on the edge of the village, yet groceries are available within 2 minutes walk and there is a choice of nearby restaurants. It's only a few minutes walk into the centre. Mijas pueblo buzzes with activity and life, yet retains a peaceful dignity. Spectacular scenery lays out beneath the many view points from the park by the bullring, from cafes benefiting from a cliff top situation and from the lovely walks on the mountainside above the village. Cafes, restaurants, bars and ice cream parlors abound and shops offer from small take-home souvenirs to smart, top quality leather goods.
Getting around
A car is not needed apart from for sight seeing purposes. Even then you have excellent public transport in this area. A good bus service runs throughout the day into Mijas with stops going both ways very close to the apartment. Buses go direct to Benalmadena, Torremolinos, Marbella, Malaga and, of course, Fuengirola (which takes about 6 minutes) In nearby Fuengriola, the train station is very near the bus station so you just get off one and straight on to the other. There is a ticket office inside the station. For full information about bus/train timetables, the Tourist Information Centre in Mijas centre will help you. Staff there speak good English and they keep copies of timetables in the office.
