So you’ve decided you’d like to move to the Costa Del Sol? Whether you’re looking to make a permanent move or just want a holiday home that you can call your own, you’re no doubt overwhelmed with a variety of options. Finding the right house can be tough, but finding the right region can be even tougher. Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Here are five reasons why we think the area is a beautiful place to live:
1. Warm and Welcoming
If you’re looking to find somewhere warm and welcoming then Mijas Costa is the perfect place to live. It has a wonderful sense of community and you’re sure to find an active social life thanks to the many restaurants, nightlife, beaches, and excellent transport links too. You’ll find some of the best tapas and paella restaurants on the coast here: a wonderfully social way to eat, and perfect for sharing with new friends.
If you’re a fan of golf then you’ll also find some excellent courses: in fact, Mijas Costa is renowned for being one of Europe’s premier golfing destinations. After you’ve enjoyed the course why not head to the club house? Yet another way to integrate yourself into the active local community, and meet like-minded people. The incredible sense of community in Mijas Costa means that you’ll soon be feeling right at home.
2. A Great Choice for Kids
If you’re thinking of relocating with children then there are several reasons why Mijas Costa is a great choice. Firstly, it is located close to highly regarded international schools in both Marbella and Benalmadena, meaning that your children can continue to receive the high standard of education that they are used to. This is also a great way for children to make friends and build relationships with other expats.
Mijas Costa has more to offer kids that just schools. You’ll also find beautiful parks and gardens for playing ball games or riding bikes in complete safety and, in the case of common childhood accidents and illnesses, Marbella’s Costa del Sol hospital is also conveniently located close by.
3. A Versatile Location
Whether you’re looking for a secluded mountain home, a beachfront villa, or a traditional village location, Mija Costa can offer it all. The main residential centres of El Faro, La Cala, and Calahonda are all situated along the coast in bustling metropolitan areas, but if you don’t fancy beach living then you don’t have to dismiss the Mijas Costa as an option. Beautiful green mountain regions rise up from the coast and are all considered a part of this beautiful region, whilst the most iconic white village in the Costa del Sol, the Mijas Pueblo, is also a part of Mijas Costa.
No matter what you’re looking for, you can find it here, whilst still taking advantage of the convenience that all of the local restaurants, bars, schools and other facilities have to offer.
4. A Taste Sensation
The Mijas Costa region is well known for the excellent and varied restaurants it has to offer. No matter what kind of cuisine you’re interested in, you’ll find it here: from freshly caught grilled fish to traditional tapas, paella to rich creamy desserts. And if you’re looking for something a little more familiar then you will also find several traditional Irish bars and classic English restaurants in the region too.
And after you’ve enjoyed your meal? Head to one of the many traditional bars, cocktail bars, flamenco clubs or even karaoke bars that you will find all over the region: there’s so much to see and do that you’ll never be at home!
5. A Bustling Expat Community
Finally, one of the main reasons why Mijas Costa is such a beautiful place to live is because of the sheer volume of other expats that live there too. Mijas is one of the most popular areas for ex-pats to move to, because it balances the traditional Spanish lifestyle with the culturally diverse amenities it´s international community requires. You will enjoy all the benefits of living in Spain (the sun, the sea, the sangria) without having to sacrifice the home comforts that you are used to.
Whether you’re looking for a traditional Spanish villa, an ultra-modern apartment, or something a little more similar to your home back in the UK, the accelerated rate of building that has happened in Mijas Costa over the last decades means that you’re sure to find it here.
