“Recently returned from a two week stay in "La Cala de Mijas". A lovely small town located on the Mediterranean, approx. 30 minutes from Malaga. The home was spotless, very modern and beautifully decorated. Our exchange partners, Catherena and Paul, O'Donovan, were very gracious and accommodating. I would highly recommend exchanging with this member.”

“What a beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea from our balconies! The condo was clean and efficient. We satilited out to all the quaint towns in the area. Great location to the coastal villages.”
“We had the pleasure off making a swap in late Oct. 2015. The apartment is very big and bright and have big terraces overlooking the city and the sea. It's clean and spacious and very easy to live in. It's possible to walk to the beach in 10 min. The beach is clean and the water is clear so if you are looking for a swap close to the sea and with a beautiful view... don't hesitate to make a swap with Catherena and her family.”
Where is it?
La Cala de Mijas is a small fishing village 20 mins from Malaga airport. There are no tour operators here so it remains a Spanish style village with locals and home owners. There is a market twice a week here and there is some fab restaurants for a dress up evening or local beach cafes chiringuitos. It is also 25 mins to Marbella and 35 to Porto Banus. There is a beautiful small sandy beach in the village with lovely swings and slides and exercise equipment for the adults. Nearby is the pretty port of Cabapino with lovely yachts moored there and small restaurants huddled around the port. Looking beyond that a pretty beach very safe for children and a brilliant cheringuito serving excellent paella and live music nightly. The mountain villages of Rhonda or Mijas are a short drive away as is Benhavis a pretty village near San Pedro. Gibralter is about 1.5 hrs by car and Africa can be spotted on a clear day from these areas.A short boattrip will bring you across to Africa .La Cala is situated in the middle of these places so is an ideal location if you feel the need to travel. For the beach lovers La Cala is perfectly situated on the edge of the Mediterranean.You can enjoy Caberet Evening here with dinner /dance in beautiful laces or informal meals on the beach or in the village .I am at hand to help you plan if you need to based on my local knowledge of the area ,my pleasure .
