Apartment near Mijas Pueblo, Costa Del Sol, Spain - 12 Meter Private Pool, 360 Degree Views

Beautiful private studio apartment on an artist's estate perched high on a plateau with totally unobstructed, 360-degree views of the entire Coast, Gibraltar, and on a clear day, the mountains of North Africa. Here, time stops, and one is enveloped by pure silence, and pure peace. Nestled among the fruit orchards, olive and fig trees, complete with an immaculate 12 by 5 meter private swimming pool, Finca San Anton makes for a perfect and unforgettable Spanish refuge. The apartment, like the house to which it is adjacent, was designed by artists intent on maintaining the uniqueness of this location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When you look up Finca San Anton it is listed under apartments, but

when you arrive and experience the mysteries and beauties of the place,

you quickly realize that it is SO much more. The luscious garden, buzzing with life; the crystal clear pool that seems to float out into the Mediterranean; and the art scattered all over serve as a testament to the creative

minds who created this place. Finca Sananton is like an island of solace perched atop the Mediterranean, so peaceful and so quiet. For me and my girlfriend, it was that island for one - far too short! - week.

Excellent Location.

  • 5 of 5

Just had a fantastic relaxing break at Finca San Anton, Mijas Pueblo.

The rustic apartment was everything we wanted, peaceful & relaxing. The setting is beautiful & the views are stunning.

It is just a 15-20 minute stroll to the town centre which takes in some fantastic views of the mountain, coast & other villas.

If its relaxation your after, then this is the ideal place.

Charlotte, the property owner is charming & helpful.

I fully recommended this property to anyone looking for a bit of peace & quite whilst not being to far from fine dining & drinks.

A sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Finca San Anton. It is unique, charming and well equipped with everything you would need. The views are stunning. It is quiet, peaceful and indeed a piece of paradise in Spain! It is a very pleasant 15min walk into the centre of Mijas and a good base for trips further afield. What made our stay so enjoyable was Charlotte who shared her knowledge of the area, her fabulous artwork and brilliant stories of her lifework and the building of the Finca. She is so very friendly and welcoming. We definitely want to return.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous week at Finca San Anton. The accommodation is spacious and really well equipped, the pool is fantastic and the setting just heavenly. Easy to walk into Mijas but also easy access by car to lots of other fabulous places. Charlotte is a superb host and has so much knowledge of the area, the best places to visit and to eat. We couldn't have asked for anything more, we will undoubtedly return.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay here, I am always pleased to see my guests leaving with tanned, relaxed, happy faces.....It is so quiet and peaceful here...with only the sounds of the birds, the crickets, and the occasional dog barking...In July and August one can pick fresh figs from the trees...One feels far away from the " maddening crowd ".And yet in only a few minutes you can be in the town of Mijas, or in 15 minutes...down in Fuengirola and the beach....25 minutes and you´re in Malaga, the capital of the province... I do hope to see you again this year. Cheers, Charlotte.

What a relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, relaxing 7 days. This perfect property with views which have to be seen to be believed, gives a historic feel with all the requirements of today's world

We hired a car however only a 15 min walk in to the lovely Mijas, about 15 minutes drive to the coast and 30 minutes to Malaga airport which makes this a perfect location.

Just a great place to stay, and of course not forgetting the lovely Charlotte who was the perfect hostess

Thanks

Owner's Response: Hi Darren and Nicky, Many thanks for your lovely review of your stay here...It was a pleasure to meet you .... The Reina figs are still a delight and now the pomegranites are ready to eat...Also the green peppers have finally started to ripen....Fall is in the air, with chillier nights, but the days are still warm and sunny...We did have a couple days of our first rains....but then the garden loves that and the land is beginning to turn green....Before you know it the wild flowers will begin to appear. I do hope you will find your dream property here....and will come and visit again.. Keep in touch.... All the best, Charlotte

Peaceful, restful holiday. Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Lying next to the pool, the silence only broken by the rattle of a million crickets. Finca St Anton is the most peaceful holiday we have had. Our studio apartment had all we needed. Views from the plateau are amazing; on a clear day you can see Africa and Gibraltar. Charlotte was a superb hostess. 20 mins flat walk into Mijas. We will return. Thank you.

Map

Finca San Anton is located in the countryside, 1 kilometer East of the town of Mijas (a three minute drive or 15 minutes on foot). Mijas combines the best of "Old" and "New" Spain. Spectacularly preserved, it contains tiny cobblestone streets, homes thick with hundreds of years of whitewash, chapels, churches, and priceless plazas. From Mijas, a 15 minute drive down the hill to the coast takes you to bustling Fuengirola, complete with beaches, malls, markets, train and bus stations. The Malaga Airport is a 20 minute drive; and 30 minutes takes you to Malaga, the capital of Andalucia. Any point along the "tenderloin" of the Costa Del Sol - East towards Torremolinos, or West towards Marbella - can be accessed in under half an hour. There is a gorgeous new health spa/gym about 7 minutes away (Nagomi Spa). The location is ideally situated for a multitude of day-trips and get-aways. Though the property is within walking distance of Mijas we strongly suggest renting a car for your stay.

Further Details:

The entire Costa Del Sol is easily accessible and the location is ideally situated for a multitude of day-trips and getaways.

Private shiatsu, yoga and art (drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery) classes can be arranged upon request.
