Property to rent Coin long lets
The village of Coín sits in the Valle del Guadalhorce at the foot of the Sierra de Mijas. This village is knee-deep in history and has roots that pre-date its Roman occupation. Magnificent marble was quarried at Coin for the nearby Roman town of Italica. The town was given a new lease of life by the Moors after it had been abandoned during the time of the Visigoths. It is a popular tourist location due to its proximity to Malaga Airport and Marbella; indeed, it is called the “30 Minute Town”. It is a popular place for ex-pats to settle and it has its own Foreign Resident’s Department where foreigners can get a lot of information and advice about living in this part of Spain.

Main Tourist Attractions
A trip to Coin would not be complete without admiring the vast amount of fountains dotted around the village. These were the main source of drinking water for the residents until fairly recently. The village is also home to several architecturally beautiful and important churches. The Tower of the Trinitarians is a 17th century example of some rare Spanish architecture. It has a triangular base and is an example of one of only three of its kind in Andalucía. The San Juan church is one of the largest in the province of Malaga and has been adopted as a national monument. The La Trocha centre is home to a gym, arcade, cinema and nightclub.
The village has authentic narrow streets where you will find a myriad of family-owned businesses selling a range of items such as baby clothes and art & crafts. The village also hosts a local market every Saturday, which is popular with locals and visitors. Just outside the village is the large shopping centre, La Trocha, which has a range of shops selling authentic Spanish clothes, books, leather goods, jewellery, games and electronic items. There is a Boot Sale held in the car park of the shopping centre every Sunday. Here you will find clothes, plants, jewellery, preserves, rugs and designer furniture, to name but a few. If your haggling skills are up to scratch you are bound to walk away with a bargain!
Eating out and Nightlife
For being a relatively small village, coin has a lot to offer in terms of cafés, restaurants and bars. It has many authentic Spanish restaurants that offer tortilla, pasta, fine wines and tapas. International cuisine such as Indian and Chinese food is also catered for, as the village is located in a busy tourist area. The bars are full of friendly locals and several ex-pats have set up their own establishments in Coin.
The nightlife in Coin is very calm within the centre of the village itself. For those whose ideal night out is a stroll through the traditional streets and some beautiful food and wine outside a restaurant, Coin is the ideal location. For those who like a bit of dancing and music, there is a nightclub located in the La Trocha shopping centre on the outskirts of the village.
