Villa Location
This villa is located in the popular coastal resort of Calahonda, on Mijas Costa. There is a selection of shops and eateries just along the street, within a few minutes' walk, whilst the beach and a larger supermarket are 5 minutes' drive away. What's more, the popular resorts of Fuengirola and Marbella, with a whole host of amenities, can be reached within 15 minutes by car. Our Villa Aran is located across the street.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Aside from the facilities within walking distance, the 3 shopping centres in the area - Los Cipreses, Los Olivos and El Zoco - are all within easy reach of the villa. There is a local market in Fuengirola every Tuesday. Alternatively, the coastal town of La Cala de Mijas is 10 minutes' drive east and has a twice weekly street market. Or, further afield, there are plenty of shops in both Marbella and Fuengirola, 15 minutes' drive away, if you are after some retail therapy.

Bars and restaurants

Villa Santa Elena is located just off the main Avenida de Espana, known locally as the Strip. This residential area is thriving with a great choice of shops, bars and restaurants practically on the doorstep. There's also restaurants in the El Zoco Centre in the resort. If seafood is what you are after, try the fish restaurants around the Cabopino Marina, which is just a 10 minute drive away.


Calahonda has a small beach but the area is conveniently located between 2 main beaches - Cabopino and Riviera del Sol. Cabopino has over 2½ miles of beach and is a great place for water sports. The smaller Riviera del Sol Beach has some pleasant restaurants all along it. Alternatively, the long coastline of Fuengirola offers a variety of sandy beaches with the promenade leading from one end of town to the other. The beaches in and around Marbella are well worth a visit too.

Family fun

Calahonda has a tourist train, which runs a loop from El Zoco in the south of the resort, up to the Strip, and as far as the Bonita Hills development, which is great for everyone to enjoy. The Miramar Centre is a shopping mall with cinemas and loads of entertainment for children, around 10 minutes' drive away. Alternatively, the Mijas Waterpark at Fuengirola is popular with all ages and can be reached in 20 minutes by car.

Places of interest

Just past Marbella is the famous yacht marina known as Puerto Banus which is open day and night and is ideal for people watching! The resort has several designer boutiques and exclusive restaurants along the marina front with a large choice of other shops and places to eat further inland. There is also a selection of clubs and nightly entertainment available.


For golfers, the closest course is La Siesta, 5 minutes' drive from the villa. There are plenty of others to choose from within easy reach too.

Other activities

The Costa del Sol is a great destination for activities such as cycling, hiking, wind surfing, surfing, and water sports. There is also a park by the Sohail Castle, before arriving to Fuengirola, where you can rent water pedalos on the river, enjoy parasailing or slides.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Lovely villa with super pool in a quiet area. Just a short walk from the supermarket and some lovely restaurants. If you just want a quiet relaxing holiday you have all you need in close proximity without the need for a hire car. Children enjoyed the pool table and table tennis table at the villa as did the adults! Family has enjoyed villa plus holidays in the past and will definitely be using them again. Thanks.

We were extremely impressed with the maid service. Especially on the friday it was an immaculate and thorough clean both inside and outside the villa. It was a great villa in an ideal location close enough to all amenities yet very peaceful and secluded!
