The village of Coín is a typical Spanish whitewashed village in Malaga set in the heart of the Guadalhorce Valley’s beautiful Andalucian countryside yet perfectly positioned as to be only 20 minutes from the Costa Del Sol beaches and towns of Marbella, Puerto Banus and Malaga.The famous Rio Grande is but a moment away. The imposing crags of Sierra Gorda glimpsed through sun-sheltering woodland, while below just beyond the orange and lemon groves, horses graze contentedly.
