Why buy in Mijas Golf?
Golf features highly on the list of attractions at Mijas Golf, although there are also reasons beyond golf that appeal to buyers as follows:
Golf on your doorstep: The first and foremost attraction at Mijas Golf are the golf courses. Two magnificent courses are on the doorstep for properties here – Los Lagos and Los Olivos, both 18-hole and designed with stunning landscaping. The rolling greens dotted with lakes are firm favourites among Golf del Sol golfers. A further two courses are nearby – La Cala Resort with its excellent infrastructure and facilities, and Santana Golf with lovely mountain views and riverscapes. These on-the-doorstep courses means Mijas Golf properties have excellent buy-to-let potential.
Lovely views: Situated in the Fuengirola River valley, Mijas Golf enjoys stunning views in every direction. The high mountains of Mijas and Sierra de las Nieves form the northern backdrop while the river valley with its extensive avocado groves lies to the south with the Mediterranean beyond. The layout of Mijas Golf makes the most of its undulating terrain and as a result, the majority of properties benefit from the lovely views.
Proximity to the coast: Situated in an almost rural location, Mijas Golf has easy access to all the attractions on the coast. Fuengirola with its wide range of things to do and excellent choice of restaurants and shops, is just a short drive away. Family entertainment here includes Fuengirola Zoo, one of the best in Spain, the Mijas Costa waterpark, the Fuengirola beaches (blue-flag holders) and the Miramar shopping centre with a long list of stores. Marbella and Puerto Banus take around half an hour to get to and provide an easy-to-reach destination for beaches, shopping and dining. A property in Mijas Golf therefore gives you the best of two worlds – the golfing and touristic – and appeals to a range of visitors.
Choice of property: The construction of many new complexes in the vicinity of Mijas Golf has led to an excellent choice of property types such as apartments, townhouses and villas to suit all requirements. Mijas Golf also has the additional advantage of three hotels on site providing an extra accommodation option for visitors.
What can I buy in Mijas Golf?
Frontline golf homes are highly sought-after in Mijas Golf and the size of the development with two courses means that many properties here enjoy this privileged position. Apartments are available in complexes built in typical Mediterranean style – whitewashed with wrought-iron details and balconies – and benefit from good communal facilities including tropical gardens and pools. Townhouse properties generally form part of smaller complexes and afford plenty of space. Individual villa properties are also available throughout the Mijas Golf development. Slightly further afield along the road to Alhaurin, several new-build complexes such as La Cala Hills offer high-end apartments and townhouses.
