Calahonda is an attractive small urbanisation just 25 minutes south of Malaga airport, nestling on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean. Our villa is in a quiet residential street with spectacular views of the ocean and the mountains behind. The nearest beach is a 5 to 10 minute drive away, or if you prefer it a 20 minute walk. There are restaurants and supermarkets in the urbanisation but for more varied shopping, the La Cañada Shopping Mall is around 10 minutes drive away. 
The Costa del Sol is one of the best destinations in Europe, offering a wonderful climate, plenty of beaches, golf courses, water parks, water sports, shopping, restaurants and night life as well as a plethora of places to visit all within easy reach.
