Property to rent Mijas long lets

Mijas is a beautiful, authentic Spanish village approximately 40 kilometres from Marbella. It is divided into three sections, namely Mijas Pueblo, Mijas Costa and Las Lagunas. Las Lagunas is the commercial area with large industries. Mijas Pueblo is the historic village which remains mostly untouched by mass tourism. Mijas Costa is a resort on the coast which is a popular destination for many British visitors. Mijas has certainly been around since the 8th century and legend has it that Mijas Pueblo may have remained inconsequential if two local children had not seen an apparition of The Virgin Mary. The apparition told the children of a 500 year old shrine covered by the town walls. The local priest uncovered the shrine; a new shrine has since been built into the rocks.

Main Tourist Attractions

As well as the beautiful, clean beaches situated in Mijas Costa, which provide the opportunity for watersports and relaxing in the sun, the children will enjoy the Parque Acuático. This attraction is a water park with many things to do including slides and a wave pool. There is also the Shrine of the Virgin carved into the rock. At its elevated level you can also enjoy the panoramic views of the coast and Mijas. The stunning Muralla Gardens have flowers which bloom all year round and plenty of resting places to sit and admire the surroundings. The donkey is the main form of transport through the narrow streets of Mijas and many tourists use this mode to make their way through Mijas Pueblo. For the sporty types, activities such as golf, mountain biking and go-karting are available.

Shopping Opportunities

Shopping in Mijas has a somewhat traditional Spanish feel. There are no large shopping centres but there are plenty of shops and boutiques to be found in the narrow streets of the town. You will find paintings, pottery, clothing, jewellery, ornate linen and pewter items in abundance in Mijas. The town of Fuengirola is nearby for those who wish to do some serious shopping.

Eating out and Nightlife

Mijas has an abundance of restaurants, cafés and bars to choose from. Alongside the traditional Spanish establishments, serving Spanish cuisine, you will find many British style pubs and restaurants. Here you will find the traditional Sunday Roast and fish & chips. Spanish restaurants specialising in seafood dishes are popular with visitors.
