Our Holidays at Finca, San Antonio near Mijas on the Costa Del Sol, Spain.

September 2010    May 2010    September 2009    July - August 2008    

When we arrived in Spain at Malaga Airport you go to the arrivals to get your luggage if you have more than just a carry on case.
After a route march across the car park and down the ramp you get to the station where you get your ticket from the machine.
When you get on the Aeropuerto train it sets off to Fuengirola via the following stations, San Julia, Plaza Mayor, Los Álamos,
La Colina, Torremolinos, Montemar Alto, El Pinillo, Benalmádena Arroyo de la Miel, Torremuelle, Carvajal, Torreblanca,
Los Boliches and then you arrive at Fuengirola.

Since our first trip in 2008 the train from Fuengirola to Malaga has been extended and you would do the above trip in reverse,
when you get to the Aeropuerto station you continue on via Guadalorce, Victoria Kent, Malaga Maria Zambrano the old Malaga
station, which gave you a long walk into the center, then you finally arrive at the new station at Malaga Centro.

As we went to Cordoba back in May we decided this time to go to Seville, all the same details as the trip to Cordoba the main difference being it takes an extra hour the train arriving at 11:10.

May 2010

On this holiday we decided to take have a day out to Cordoba, in the morning we went to the local bus stop to get the bus that comes down from Mijas and goes down to Fuengirola a trip we make up and down many times when on holiday. On this occasion we went to a travel shop down the seafront to find out the cost of the trip to Cordoba we were told it would be about 85 euros and the coach would believe the following week at eight o'clock, we said we would go away and think about the trip and decided we would try and make it under our own steam. The following week we got the bus down to Fuengirola which was late, we went to get the train to the old Malaga station Maria Zanbrano. On our arrival went to the next level to buy a ticket for the train that left at 9:10 to Cordoba arriving at 10:10.

As you walk along past the many shops and cafes you pass the square used for local events like markets, dancing and fairs.
At various points along the way are stairs that take you to the streets and shops that overlook Mijas, further around the back
of the town you find even more cafes, restaurants, gift shops, banks and more.
At the end of a small square used to take the traffic on a one way system you come to a steep road which takes you up to the
Bullring, more place to eat and drink, the gardens with great fountains and an outside theatre.
