Southern Spain is the home of the little white village.
There are a few super cute ones that I plan on showing you around.
Lets start with Mijas (Pronounced Me -Hass)...famous for its Donkey taxis! It nestles comfortably in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level.
Despite being hugely popular with tourists, Mijas Pueblo has somehow managed to retain much of its traditional Andalusian way of life, the locals displaying their unabashed passion for all things festive and an unmistakable relaxed 'mañana' outlook on anything that can be put off for another day. I think they are definitely on to something there...
Take a leisurely stroll along the cobbled streets until you make your way to the fortress wall. Here you can take in the breathtaking view of the costa del sol and the Mediterranean.
The San Sebastian church dates back to the 17th century and is on the street of the same name, Calle San Sebastian.
Made famous amongst visitors who find both the building and setting so pretty that it has become one of the most photographed streets on the Costa del Sol.
And when your ready, pull up a seat at one of the cafes and order a cafe con leche
Hand-made ceramics are as traditional to Spain as Haggis is to Scotland, and this is the pace to shop for the real deal.
The famous Donkey taxis. After much research, it seems they are very well looked after.
Set against the pine tree covered mountains, this little town really does have its own charm and character. The people are warm and friendly, and the views are spectacular.
