Los PACOS - Districts of Fuengirola
Once just a few dusty streets on the outskirts of Fuengirola and Los Boliches, the Los Pacos neighbourhood has grown into quite a built up, self contained area. Very well connected by recent improvements to road infrastructure, many people of all nationalities are buying homes and holiday homes in this area. With its own schools, sports facilities, shops, cafes and restaurants, it is becoming more and more popular, particularly for people with young families. There is a frequent bus service to Fuengirola town centre. It sits back from the coast and backs onto the Torreblanca neighbourhood.
The recently opened Los Pacos Rackets Club for Paddle Tennis Club has added further interest in this up and coming neighbourhood. Rackets Club, Avenida de la Canteras s/n, Los Pacos, Fuengirola. Tel: 952 588 891.
The house prices in Los Pacos are lower than the neighbourhoods in and around Fuengirola centre, but as the roads and amenities improve, so the prices are rising.
In the 1970’s and 80’s, Los Pacos used to be a predominantly Finnish enclave, the main street running through the area still bearing the name Calle Finlandia. At that time, the dwellings were mainly small Andalucian whitewashed houses, with one or two taller buildings gradually sprouting up for holiday apartments. Now, there are large chalets with private swimming pools as well as streets of small two-storey terrace houses and luxury apartment blocks with penthouse suites.
