Updated: 03-Oct-2016
Apartment in La Cala de Mijas, Mijas Costa, Costa del Sol, Spain - Just 10 Minutes Walk From The Lovely Village Of La Cala With Good Restaurants And A Blue Flag Beach

Whatever your requirements for a family holiday, you can be sure to find it on the Costa del Sol. With it's wonderful Mediterranean climate boasting over 300 days of sunshine per year, it's THE ideal holiday destination for families, golfers, and sun lovers alike. You can even ski in the winter in the Sierra Nevada near Granada! Miles of sandy beaches, water sports, golf courses aplenty, lively resorts like Benalmadena and Fuengirola, and the chic, cosmopolitan Marbella and Puerto Banus, provide something for everyone. What about a cable car ride to the top the Rock of Gibraltar to visit the Barbary Apes, a visit to the Picasso Museum in Malaga, or a stroll round the lovely medieval town of Ronda? Shop till you drop in the designer boutiques of Marbella (don't forget your credit card!), or do some celebrity spotting at Puerto Banus. In the evenings, there are an abundance of restaurants serving wonderfully fresh seafood, as well as paella and traditional Andalucian dishes. Night-life is plentiful in Benalmadena and Fuengirola, with many clubs and bars where you can dance till the sun comes up. If golf is your thing, it doesn't get much better than this. The apartment is just 5 minutes walk from the 1st tee at the La Noria Resort, and less than 10 minutes drive from La Cala Resort, Spain's biggest golf resort with 3 18-hole courses and a David Leadbetter academy, 5 minutes drive from El Chaparral, and 15 minutes from Mijas Golf with 2 18 hole courses. There are around 50 courses all told, and all are within an hour's drive.

About the Owner

I'm a software engineer (serves me right I hear you say!) approaching retirement age, and looking forward to spending a lot more time in La Cala in the future.

Originally from Scotland (despite the Spanish name) we've been in Cambridgeshire for the last 37 years and have now come to recognise it as home. When the kids were growing up, we always used to have self-catering holidays as we just didn't like being organised as far as meal times etc were concerned. So as holiday property owners, we try very hard to make the renting experience as simple as possible. We take all comments, positive or negative seriously, and strive to provide a memorable holiday experience for all our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

July 2014

We have booked for May 2015 and this will be our 3rd visit to this wonderful apartment.

It feels like a home from home with all the facilities you need while enjoying a sunshine break.

The area the apartment is located in is very quiet but only a 10 minute walk in to the hustle and bustle of the town.

The Bio Park in Fuengirola is a must see with only a 12 Euro taxi ride from the town.

Once again I cannot rate this apartment highly enough.

October 2013

We have stayed in this apartment twice and have booked to return again in 2014.

It is large with a fantastic terrace with steps down to its own private garden. The terrace receives sun all day. The apartment is well equipped and has everything that we need.

We have 2 boys. aged 7 and 3 and they love coming here. they can play in the garden and the paddle tennis courts are a few steps from the terrace, meaning they can go and play and we can still watch them. The complex pool is very clean and often we have had the pool to ourselves - lovely in the middle of August. There are no loungers by the pool but as the terrace receives so much sun we have never felt the need to sunbathe at the pool.

Los Prados del Golf is a 10-15 minute walk into La Cala. It is a flat walk and is well lit at night. We have been on holiday to La Cala 6 times now and love the laid back atmosphere, beach bars and easy access to the rest of the Costa del Sol.

August 2013

The whole family enjoyed our stay at Los Prados del Golf. The apartment was like a home from home. Very clean and had everything we needed.

The children loved the pool and it was also nice and quiet.

I would definitely recommend renting this apartment if you are thinking of visiting La Cala de Mijas. It is a fantastic resort and place to visit.

We will definitely be visiting again.

From the Owner

Originally bought as an investment property, we have come to really enjoy our stays in La Cala and try to get there at least twice a year. We love the simplicity of the place, nice bars and restaurants, not too crowded, and where service still counts. The beach is ideal and the beach bar is perfect for lunch. With just a 25 minute drive from Malaga airport, you can start your holiday relaxed and refreshed.

Just a short flat walk into the village to the shops, bars and restaurants, and in a nice quiet location. The pool always seems to be empty
