The link above provides a look at the location and all it has to offer everyone that makes the trip.

The location of La Cala de Mijas is situated right in the centre of the famous Costa del Sol and has plenty going on to keep everyone entertained throughout the stay.

The town delivers a mixture of expat-haven, affordability, authenticity and affluence. The town centre has fountains for roundabouts; manicured tree-lined avenues; portly old Spanish gentlemen staring in bemusement at the fast-paced town that has sprung up around them; and a multinational collection of families and couples dashing all over the place, lending La Cala de Mijas a slightly muddled, but intoxicating, atmosphere.

A 15 minute drive West and you will find yourself in Marbella.
Marbella is rumored to be Spain’s Centre piece destination,fresh yet classy, laid-back yet open-all-hours, and easily accessible yet a world away from the dreary grey of home. Marbella is an enigma So check out the link below..

Exciting times ahead!
Best wishes
Darren & Alison
