This luxury apartment is situated in one the most idyllic settings on the Costa del Sol nestled just below the picturesque white-washed mountain village of Mijas. The apartment enjoys splendid panoramic views over the Mediterranean coast and Andalusian mountains. Finca San Antonio has tropical gardens, 2 swimming pools, security gates, wheelchair access to all parts of the complex and rooms, poolside toilets, pool-side showers, underground parking (if required), lifts to all apartments and nearby restaurants (Valpariso - very famous). The apartment boasts Sky Satellite (Sky viewing card needed for some programs) 42' Plasma TV that pauses and records all programs. WiFi internet access. Travel to and from the airport easily and quickly by public transport (only approx 5 Euro). If you are thinking of traveling by taxi I suggest renting a car from the airport using a budget internet based hire company. I will send details to anyone interested.

Just back from a weeks stay!
I've stayed on this complex probably 5-6 times now and it's very high end. The décor and condition of the complex is very nice, and the surrounding grounds very well maintained. This was the first time staying at Jason's apartment and the booking process easy, as were collecting the keys. The quality of the apartment is very good with all the appliances and equipment needed. The balcony is well equipped with sofas and dining chairs/table. In terms of locality there is a bus stop outside the complex to grab a lift up to Mijas village for a few drinks and some great food if you want to leave the car behind, and beaches are 10 mins away. The village is very old Spain, and a breath of fresh air. Would highly recommend to anyone, both couples or families looking for a great break, in a great area, staying in a nice resort. Will be back soon. Cheers Matt
Thank you for your review Matt, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Facilities were great and people were really friendly!!
Property was modern and clean
Beds could have been alittle more comfortable. Disappointing we couldn't use our lido in the pool!
Great accommodation in a lovely location
Have stayed at Finca San Antonio many times. Never been disappointed. Very well appointed apartments in lovely grounds with two pools
Nice accommodation ideal for those wanting quiet holiday
The location is half way up the hill to Mijhas so a car is essential. Location I would describe as quiet so if you are wanting everything on your doorstep this is not the place for you Jason the owner was not very good at communicating with responses to questions. The accommodation was lovely apart from the beds were hard and I wouldn't call them comfortable. Nice balcony. Kitchen could have been better equipped it was sufficient but on a number of ocassions I found that I needed various items. E.g the knives were blunt, plates were chipped , the property needed some maintenance work e.g the door frame around the kitchen door frame was coming away. There was a problem with the key fob and the electric gates to the underground car park admittedly we did report then towards end of week they did get it working. The complex is residential and this accommodation is definitely not for families with young children there are too many rules around the pool don't do this and that it needed adding on don't have any fun! Having said that it did suit our needs we travelled with my elderly mother in a wheelchair and accessing the pool and the accommodation was easy. If you want a quiet time away from it all this is the place for you. Fuengirola is a 10 minute drive away. There is a lidl and Aldi not far away.
Overall reasonable accommodation what I would expect.
Great apartment, but a few issues & problems...
The size of the flat is great with a decently large bedroom & superb living space. The complex of Finca San Antonio is, overall, excellent & top quality. What let flat 38 down to us was a very hard bed & no sunbeds or sunbathing area.. more later.... plus there was no "arrival information pack" which was pretty poor: fortunately, we know the area like the back of our hand, but people unfamiliar with the area may struggle?
Without doubt, we will return to this complex and, indeed, have requested another apartment here for 10 days time for another couple of weeks here.
There were a few annoyances! Regrettably, the cleaner hadn't been so it was very dirty when we arrived. Communication with the owner was somewhat haphazard, but he did end up sending us a couple of bottles of wine after the cleaner didn't materialise a second time. (PS We cleaned it!!). The Sky TV didn't work, but a friend gave us his box & card so we were OK.
There are NO SUNBEDS with this flat which is infuriating to us Brits as we love lying on them for most of the day by the pool..... but you cannot leave sunbeds (if you have them!) next to the pool unless you're actually there - meaning you would have to carry beds to & from your apartment - as leaving them is strictly forbidden on this complex. There is a "storage" room but it is full & you are politely asked not to use other people's sunbeds. In the 12 days we were there, we only went in the pool once - we went elsewhere.... not good!
We had a lovely holiday using this as a base. We intend returning to the area in 10 days time and would have stayed here again but it is booked out - but we have requested another apartment on this same complex so that speaks volumes.
Relaxing, quiet and peaceful
This is a very spacious 2 bedroom apartment, which is clean and tidy. We are a family of 5 (3 young children) and never felt on top of each other. The complex itself is very well maintained with 2 swimming pools. It also has a games room with table football/tennis along with TV room and books/games you can borrow. It does mention a gym, sauna and indoor pool but these are not available so don't expect these, for us this wasn’t a requirement!
For my family this was a perfect location as it was out the way of the main tourist areas like Fuengirola and Mijas although they are almost on your doorstep if you want them. A car is a must, there are buses that run but you cannot really walk to a shop/restaurant as the road is not very well lit up and it is on a very steep hill.
Mijas is 2km away, this is a very nice little village with some quite quaint restaurants and tapa's bars. Fuengirola does nothing for me personally but the beach and bars are within a 10 minute drive. We found the best beach was Puerto Cabopino, this is about a 15 minute drive and the beach is very sandy and the sea is very calm, perfect for the kids. Be warned though, this does get very busy so get there early!
Although there are about 50 apartments we virtually had the pool to ourselves. The only real annoyance was the Wi-Fi connection was down more than up.
To summarize, this is a very clean, tidy apartment/complex, which is very quiet and peaceful. Things are in the area if you want them but not within a distance that makes then walkable.
I wouldn’t agree to a 5 star rating, having stayed in 5 star complexes but it certainly is very nice. Overall my family had a wonderful holiday and would recommend this property.
There are bus stops directly outside Finca San Antonio for easy access to Mijas village or Fuengirola every 15 mins. Mijas is one of the most beautiful Spanish villages on the Costa del Sol, some argue the best. The apartments location is peaceful and within walking distance of Mijas village. The views are breathtaking from the apartment on a clear day the mountains of Morocco can be seen. Listed below are just a few of the local shops very close to Mijas/Fuengirola: El Corte Ingles, Hipercor, EuroMarket, Lidl. Restaurants are too numerous to name but for a special occasions the Valpariso is less than 1km from the complex. Mijas is also very close to many attractions such as Tivoli World (Benalmadena), 2 AquaParks (Fuengirola and Torremolinos). Ski: In the winter periods it is possible to travel to Sierra Nevade to try your hand at skiing.
