Close to beach... El Faro, Mijas, Costa del Sol

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
Mijas, Costa del Sol, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
Lovely one bedroom apartment in El Faro, Mijas Costa, Costa del Sol. 30 kilometres from Malaga Airport and 15 kilometres from Marbella. 7-minute walk from the nearest beach, 2-minute walk to the nearest small supermarket, with a restaurant where you can enjoy the daily menu of 3 courses plus drink for only 9 Euros. If you don't feel like going to the beach, just go the shared pool down the path.

You can enjoy a panoramic view from the terrace while eating your breakfast! The apartment has one bedroom, but is not squashed living - the living is large and opens onto the terrace with it amazing views - it is very light and airy. The apartment has loads of cupboard space and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. When you feel like going out for the day, the bus stop to Fuengirola (10 minutes by bus) is 5 minutes...

Interaction with guests
We do not live in Spain, but we have an agency with which we work so if you have any problems they are there to help you. When you arrive you can either pick up the keys from the agency in Fuengirola or we can arrange for a pick up from the airport and the driver will give you the keys. We can also provide a 'Meet & Greet' service where you are met directly at the apartment and given the keys - these at a small cost. When you leave you can drop the keys into the key box just outside the front door of the apartment.

About the neighbourhood
El Faro is on the Mijas coast in between Fuengirola and Mijas Calle. It is a quiet urbanisation with foreigners and locals who own property. English, Swedish, Finnish, Swiss etc. are all found in this neighbourhood. It is spread out, so no high rise buildings full of rowdy people.

Walking distance to everything - beach 7 minutes, bus stop 5 minutes and local supermarket and restaurant 2 minutes. 5 minutes walk, you will find a bigger supermarket with more restaurants around. Really convenient - and as the prices are good, you never need to cook at home!

Buses take you to all the bigger towns, so you don't even need a car! From Malaga airport, you can also take the train to Fuengirola, which takes 30 minutes and then a taxi to the flat which would be around 8-10 Euros. Or have...
Getting around
A car is recommended if you want to go and visit places. We don't use a car as the bus is really cheap and regular. We also walk a lot when we are there, but if want to go further then a car is good. The bus on the main national road takes you down to Marbella or up to Malaga and the metro in Fuengirola takes you directly to the airport if necessary. There is also a bus station in Fuengirola so you can visit Mijas Pueblo which is a really beautiful Spanish town.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Malaga: 25.0 km
Railway: Fuengirola: 7.0 km
From the airport, you can either take a taxi directly to the apartment, which would cost approx: 40-45 Euros or take the train from the airport - found just outside the terminal, to Fuengirola, then taxi for a 5 minute drive to the apartment.

For pick-up of the keys and any other information you want, you would need to stop off at the Agency based in Fuengirola, but again very easy to find! They can also help you with any questions or arrangements you have or need
