Coín (pronounced coEEN) with a history dating back long before the Roman conquest, has expanded significantly in recent years due to a large influx of families from northern Europe who are looking to locate near to the coast but wish to live in a traditional Spanish town. The town's traditional beauty, Andalusian authenticity and breathtaking location make it extremely easy on the eye, and the wallet.
Coín is situated in the fertile valley of the Rio Grande where coastal mountains meet the Guadalhorce Valley between cork oak and pinewoods, 20 minutes drive from Marbella
A new bypass has opened and further road improvements have considerably improve access from the coast and Málaga.
But suggest living there to those who are accustomed to a fast-paced lifestyle and the chances are they’ll dismiss it as being ‘too quiet'. On the other hand these expats who have made the conscious choice to get away from the international coast and tourists will be delighted to enjoy instead, the more authentic experience of truly living in Spain amongst Spaniards. A number of other people choose to live in some of the quieter and charming outlying towns and villages.
Property prices are naturally much less than the coast but still relatively pricey reflecting the desirability of living here with a choice of apartments, townhouses, villas and spanish style fincas on large land.
