Notes
Around and about
Calahonda is located about mid way between Malaga Airport and Marbella, close to several golf courses and has the typically sun-drenched beaches for which the Costa del Sol is so popular.


Just a few kilometres along the road is Puerto Cabopino, we think it's probably the most secluded and picturesque port on the Costa and a popular venue for a lunch time drink or that romantic meal before taking a stroll along its sandy beaches.

A few kilometres more and you hit the world famous resorts of Marbella and Puerto Banus - the millionaires playground. The old town of Marbella is a labyrinth of small streets, bedecked with vibrant bouganvilla. Don't forget to have a drink in Orange square, a lovely plaza in the centre of the old town surrounded by orange trees.

The marina at Puerto Banus has many luxury yachts and there are fabulous restaurants and incredible designer shops, Gucci, Christian Dior, Bulgari etc, all around the marina. The perfect place to while away the hours and people watch.

Just a short drive away is Mijas, one of the "white" villages, famous for it's donkey taxis. It also has a free flamenco show every Wednesday in the main square at mid day. Well worth a visit and wander round the old part of the village.

Gibraltar is only an hours drive along the coast.

There are numerous championship Golf courses within a radius of 20km, which is why the coast is often called "Costa del Golf". There is a 9 hole, short game course just minutes away.

Fuengirola is a few kilometers in the other direction. This is a nice Spanish 'working' town which has a super range of shops both large stores and small Spanish ones. It also boasts a bio parque, an award winning conservation zoo which is lovely to visit in August when it stays open till midnight so you can see the nocturnal animals.

There are plenty of restaurants to suit every taste and pocket, a long paseo (promanade) to stroll along and a large water park for those more adventurous.

How ever you choose to spend your time on the Costa del Sol, you will never be bored.

Beaches
At Calahonda the beach is golden soft sand - ideal for family holidays. Along the coast on virtually every beach you will be able to enjoy a selection of good quality restaurants and chiringuitos (beach bars) which specialise in freshly caught sardines barbecued in sand filled fishing boats infront of the restaurant.

They are generally competitively priced and offer something for every taste and pocket. Sun beds can be hired from the restaurants on a half day or full day basis.

Cabopino is the longest of the Mijas Costa beaches at over 4,500 meters long and 25 meters wide. This beach is perfect for the whole family and caters for sunbathers, scuba divers and fishermen alike. It is a fairly straight line of beach with golden sand and plenty of beach beds and parasols for rent and a good choice of lively beach bars for refreshment and entertainment.


During months of June, July and August there is always a feria on somewhere. These are large fairs or fiestas that usually go on for a week. It is lovely to watch and join in with the Spanish as they dress in their flamenco costumes and dance the night away.


Malaga airport is only 25 minutes away on the Ap7 (toll road)

August 2014 Holiday

Had a wonderful and memorable holiday. Casa Mariposa is a lovely villa, extremely spacious and well furnished. Brenda & Bob made us feel very welcome and were able to advise on places to see, restaurants, beaches etc. The grounds of the villa are well established and provide a relaxing and secluded setting within a private area and yet only minutes away from beaches and all amenities. The terrace is well furnished for that outdoor comfort when required and the pool and garden were brilliant for the adults and our 2 grandchildren. We could not have made a better choice.
Owner comment
Thank you Malcolm & Irene for your very kind review. It was lovely meeting you and your delightful family and we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Casa Mariposa. Hope to see you in Calahonda again.

june 2013 holiday

Just returned from ten days in Villa Mariposa. Brenda and Bob were perfect hosts and it was lovely to recieve a well stocked welcome basket. Villa was well equipped and spotlessly clean.Villa was peaceful yet within 15 mins walk of bars and restaurants. Would definately go back again and would recommend to anyone. We were two adults and three teenagers. Beds were really comfortable too and wifi a real bonus.

Excellent villa to rent

Excellent property to rent for a family or a group of friends wishing to holiday together. Owners always on hand to answer any queries but not intrusive. Lot of places to visit. Would definitely return.

Great villa

Great villa and a great area if you like a quiet place for your holiday. The only minus was that lack of Internet, but that should have been taken care of now. The owners lives nearby and fix any smallest issue almost before you even knew you had them.

Peace & Tranquility

We have stayed in villas all around spain every year since 1999. We have not however found one we would both like to return to, until now. That has now changed and we honestly believe we will return to Casa Mariposa. It simply ticked all of our boxes. Brenda & Bob are genuine friendly hosts who do not get in your way unless you need them, we didn't need them as everything about the holiday was fantastic. The Villa is extremely spacious and well presented and its position could not be better. Far enough to be peaceful but close enough to walk to a number of restaurants. The Villa is not overlooked and with a security automatic gate (opened by "the zapper") makes you feel very safe. Within 10 mins drive of the villa you can be at hundreds of eating establishments so choice is really good. Basically if you want to book a villa in a very nice area of Spain and know you are going to have a good time then this is the place. Many thanks to Brenda & Bob
