Coin sits on the northern foot of the Sierra de Mijas, inland Málaga, overlooking the spectacular Guadalhorce valley, one of the most fertile areas in southern Spain, where the beautiful landscape is covered in orchards and farmland and affords beautiful mountain views.
The town itself has grown in popularity and has become a destination for foreign residents, wanting to live in a more authentic Andalucian environment. The town offers good shopping, dining and leisure facilities and is located just 20 minutes drive from the coastal town of Marbella.
Coin offers an escape from the typical Costa del Sol seaside resort and is a good jump off point to see other areas of inland Andalusia.
I can pick you up at the bus stop in Coin, 15 minutes from the Finca,
(buses from Malaga, Marbella and Fuengerola approx. every hour))
There is some stunning walks, areas to paint or just relax and observe the local nature.
In my house no two days are the same.
