Alhaurin el Grande

Alhaurin el Grande (Pop.2005 – 20,074) is a town located in the province of Málaga in Andalusia in southern Spain, 30 km. from the provincial capital, and at 239 meters above the sea level. It is one of the most picturesque villages in the Guadalhorce river valley. Almost all the town streets are narrow and winding which these days may cause some traffic congestion.

It is situated between the river Fahala and the stream of Blas González. The coast is close by, with Fuengirola and Mijas just along a winding road round the mountain, and a new road has been built through to Marbella, to the south west. The rolling hills and wide open spaces give a feeling of space from all around the town. From Alhaurín there is a lovely view over the “Hoya de Málaga”, Málaga’s vale, full of lemon trees and other fruit trees, which together look like a vast carpet.

Alhaurin retains its original small Spanish town look and feel. It’s a lively town which still has the charm of the typical Andalusian villages but also caters to all your needs with supermarkets, local shops and numerous Spanish and international bars and restaurants in and around town to discover.

The town is set amongst the scenery of Andalusian mountains, with the Sierra de Las Nieves to the north providing a picturesque background.

The area is perfect for all kinds of activities like hiking, horse back riding, and ofcourse golf. The Costa del Sol is famous for it’s golfcourses and they are all within reach of the properties.
