Coín is a small inland town located between Marbella and Malaga at the foot of the Sierra de Mijas mountains. It is a beautiful agricultural town overlooking the valley, known as the `Valle del Guadalhorce´, surrounded by fields of almonds, olives, lemons, oranges and fruit orchards. In the heart of Coín you can find beautiful, traditional plazas and churches, restaurants, cafés and shops.
Coín is just 30 km from Marbella, 30 km from Malaga and the perfect location if you want to live in a quieter Andalucía and enjoy a more ´authentic´ experience. The properties are more affordable than those on the coast yet just a short drive away from the main Costa del Sol attractions. Here you can find classical Spanish villas located in the beautiful Andalusian countryside with views over fields and mountains. In Coín, you get the best of both worlds.
Monda is a stunning village in the mountains behind Marbella and Ojén. Above the village, on a tree-covered hill, is the stunning Castillo de Monda, a boutique hotel with an excellent restaurant. In the centre of the village you can find the small village square, the Plaza de la Ermita, that is surrounded by restaurants and bars. Monda is situated in the Sierra de las Nieves Country Park where it’s possible to enjoy a variety of activities such as horse riding, hiking, birdwatching and generally appreciate the local flora and fauna. In the village you can also find a winery and an old mill that still makes local olive oil.
With Malaga just half an hour away and popular Marbella only a 15-minute drive, this is a perfect place to enjoy the thrills of the coast but live in an authentic Spanish ´pueblo´. In Monda, you will find a mix between villas and other properties that look like cosy cabins. A number of villas have swimming pools in which to enjoy the summer heat whilst surrounded by the Andalusian countryside.
Behind the Sierra de Mijas mountains you will find Alhaurín el Grande, a beautiful town surrounded by majestic mountain scenery. The centre is filled with tapas bars, restaurants and cafés and there is a park with small streams and a waterfall. Nearby you can find the Lauro Golf golf course where the spectacular mountain backdrop makes it hard to keep your eye on the ball (if you ever need an excuse). Marbella is 35km away and the popular city of Fuengirola is only 20kms away. In just 30 minutes you can be at Malaga airport, so you will be perfectly located between everything you need.
This beautiful town offers more affordable property prices and a lot of charming apartments and townhouses. The properties here will give you that authentic Spanish pueblo feeling and is the perfect place for anyone who enjoys the calming scenery of mountains and rivers.
