About Alhaurin el Grande

Nestling on the north side of Sierra de Mijas 27km from Málaga and 20km to the airport and the Costa del Sol beaches Alhaurín el Grande has fought hard over the last twenty years to maintain its culture and traditions and at the same time improving its infrastructure.

This vibrant town boasts two golf courses within 4km of the town centre, good social and health facilities and it is attracting a large number of Northern Europeans who prefer to live away from the hustle and bustle of the Costa del Sol towns.

Alhaurín el Grande’s main industries are construction (and it’s ancillary services) and agriculture, so it is not unusual to see a large part of its 23.000 population heading for the building sites on the coast early in the morning. Even so the town with its many restaurants and bars comes alive in the early evening until the small hours of the morning.

About Coín

Coín is a traditional Spanish town, very well cared for, and loved by all here. When you get here, you will love the people too, very warm and friendly. With our location, in the mountains and beautiful countryside, still only half an hour from Marbella, the beach or the airport, in recent years population has grown and has now a nice addition of 20 percent non Spanish residents. You can live a pleasant life here, pay less for your rent etc, and still keep your work on the coast. Nice to come home here, to peace and quiet after a busy day at work, that many have found already..

Although Coín is a small town there is plenty to do here. There are all the big supermarkets (Lidl, Mercadona, Dia) plus a shopping centre with a cinema and also the famous boot sale on Sundays as a meeting place. A weekly farmers market held next to La Trocha shopping centre on Sunday mornings is also a great place for buying cheap, fresh, locally grown produce.

You will enjoy the variety of bars and restaurants – traditional Spanish food, Indian, Chinese and a few nice British pubs where you can join the darts team or get a great fish & chips dinner when you miss home!

Coín celebrates lots of local Fiestas of course, you can join in on the horse carriages or the dancing, or just sit at the bar watching them all – everybody dressed up in traditional outfits, even the horses wear their Sunday best!

The great New Years celebration is famous, and people come from all over Spain to this one – not to be missed.

The people of Coín love children and for those little ones everything is provided. There are lots of good schools, a lot of activities organized for them after school and a lot of new friends to make!

Moving to Málaga

A blog post about moving to Málaga

Until a few years ago Málaga was a town on the North-East side of Picasso Airport. The majority of tourists would not visit it due to lack of information and infrastructure but all that has now changed.

Málaga today is one of the best cities in the world to live in and visit, it is by right the capital of the Costa del Sol.

Thanks to massive investments by private enterprise, local authorities and regional government, Málaga enjoys an infrastructure second to none. The high speed train takes thousands of daily passengers to and from Madrid in less than three hours, dozens of cruise ships are dropping anchor in the harbour every month and many companies are planning to make Málaga their permanent base.

The Picasso Museum has received an average of one million visitors per year since 2003 and the CAC Museum of Contemporary Art is at the cutting edge of Europe’s modern art.

It is not unusual to walk into the pedestrian city centre and see hundreds of recently landed tourists mixing with hundreds of young international students, who choose Málaga to study anything from languages to law, giving the city an exciting and vibrant atmosphere.

All this coupled with it’s near perfect climate, beautiful beaches, great eating places ( traditional, modern and ethnic), superb theatres and of course the many festivals (from religious to jazz to film and book) guarantees that whichever month one decides to visit Málaga there will always be something exciting happening.
