we have around trip of over 4 hours so it is only when we are desperate for stuff from Iceland or a trip to the US consulate but the f&c is really good. There is also a really good Italian place just along the road which we found when the CC was closed for refurb.

I go to Fuengi when there’s something I want to see at that little theatre, Salon de Varietê or whatever it’s called.
But next time I go I’ll check our your recommendation.

Just wanted to update this thread a little in the hope of more advice and opinions since my original post.

Unfortunately I only managed 1 trip so far due to unforeseen circumstances and of course now the current pandemic. On my trip I stayed in Malaga city and loved it. I also took a trip to El Palo. I loved the feel of the City but would not like to permanently live there, I would be happy to travel into it on day trips etc. Also found as I feared El Palo a little quiet for what I am looking for.

On my last post I had been interested in the Calahonda area. I did search this forum and found a thread on Calahonda however this thread is now closed unfortunately and so I couldn't post a question. I did find parts of the thread fairly negative to the area. As that post was in 2011 I was wondering could someone update me on some areas I picked up on from that thread.

1. Is Calahonda area a very big ex pat area or is there a good mix of Spanish too?
2. Is the A7 road very noisy/ busy. For example having a property near the beach , would there be constant traffic noise?
3. Crime rate. Is there much crime in the area , break ins , youth crime etc? Is the beach walk safe at night for older parents / girlfriend etc?
4. Does the area get much quieter in the winter months or is the majority of local people permanent residents?

As I have previously mentioned renting is my first plan until I know 100% exactly where I want to buy. I was surprised at prices beyond Calahonda towards Marbella area. I expected them to be much higher. Maybe this strip by the coast between the two is not as popular.

As always I really appreciate people taking the time to read my post and any and all opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,
Factor 50
