Fall head over heels in love with Alhaurin de la Torre
While many people visit the Costa del Sol region for the beaches, there are also some wonderful inland towns ready and waiting to impress. Alhaurin de la Torre is a short drive from Malaga, and around 15 minutes from the beaches of Torremolinos. The interior here is worth exploring, especially if you’re looking to stay away from the usual tourist destinations.
There are some fabulous newly-built property options in and around the town. They include chic apartments and sizable town houses for larger family groups. The pace of life here is pleasingly slow, and is a marked difference from that of the UK. Alhaurin de la Torre is clean, attractive and friendly.
It’s located close to the Sierra de Mijas mountain formation, so the local skylines can be dramatic and exceptionally picturesque. And in the town itself, you can enjoy quality time in the pretty parks and gardens, where you’ll find plenty of shade to protect you when the sun is at its hottest.
Shop till you drop, you’ll love every minute!
The commercial centre of Alhaurin de la Torre is home to an excellent selection of bars and restaurants. There are small convenience stores aplenty as well as large supermarkets, not to mention stores selling everything from antiques to fashions. Sports facilities here are excellent as well.
There are a few schools in Alhaurin de la Torre, as well as a couple of international schools located nearby, so if you’re looking for Spanish education options you won’t be disappointed. Adapting to the local way of life will be easier here perhaps than in the more tourist-centric locations such as Marbella and Estepona.
If you’ve been thinking about retiring to Spain in recent times and you’re not sure where to start looking, Alhaurin de la Torre could be perfect. It’s within easy reach of the whole tourist scene of the Costa del Sol yet it remains resolutely Spanish. In many ways, this is a typical example of what an Andalusian town should feel like.
